A good day . . .

Many of you know that I LOVE antiquing.
I think I have alot of company in this "love" . .  yes?
Nothing like the early morning wakings, walking around in a fog
real and brain wise! The thrill of the hunt . . .  the agony of
"Oh, they got there first" !
But still with happiness that someone else would enjoy what you 
spied a second too late!
It's all fun and wonder . . . and really good exercise!
Hmm . . . .Maybe I should make an "antiquing for exercise video" !
You walk, you run, you stretch you bend . . . it's a total body workout!
And you usually get a prize to boot!

Now to think of a name for Mr. Crow . . . . 
Yesterday we went to the Springfield Extravaganza . . . 
A big antique /flea market, with 3 huge antique malls close by!
Springfield , Ohio.
The day did NOT disappoint!
Enjoy my finds!
Of course I get tunnel vision this time of year and almost everything I bought
was black!

Happy junkin'
Lori Ann

...Oh a good day indeed! :o)

...I too love antiquing. Even if I come home empty handed I'm still happy because I just love being out and about and getting to see some early & awesome pieces.

...That crow is adorable and I couldn't help but notice the sweet doll sitting in her highchair in the background. I can't wait to see who or what is going to be sporting these lovely items in the future. Hmmm... ;o)

...Have a lovely weekend!

...Blessings :o)
