Saturday afternoon I was able to spend a little time out wandering around in the world. It was good to just fill up my eyes and relax! I visited two new antique shops I had been wanting to check out. Neither had the type of things I was interested in buying but still fun to look.
I finished up with a walk through Monticello Antique Mall where I picked up a few buttons and an old wooden cheese box. It has been my experience that green is the least common color I find so I was happy when I spotted a little bag of all green. I have accumulated SO many buttons lately that I am thinking about making up a few cards of single colors. So many ideas, so little time....
On Sunday I made my weekly pilgrimage to the VOA and they delivered, as usual. Everything else was purchased there. I love that the tart tins are in the original vintage box! Yes, I know that glass cone should be the other way around and in a stand but I have in my mind to use it as a cloche. I think the piece of fabric will inspire my next inspiration kit. I love that color combination. Now that I think of it, these latest finds have a color theme going on. Do you have any favorite colors lately?
