A few new treasures~


Hi friends~

I have the day off today and I plan to shop til' I drop. :) Lookie here what Mammaw found for me @ her country 'junk store'.

She got it for a WHOPPING $2.00.
Hello~ gorgeous embroidery you can live on my bed....lol. :)

Then daughter ( the genius :) & I went to our little junk store last week

& found this~

At $6.00 I thought it was the perfect 'home' for these....

The butterfly necklace is from the late 70's and was Mammaw's ( it had perfume inside ) and the pocket watch belonged to my great Uncle and was a retirement gift from his company in 1960. I like having them both together in this little box. :)

Well, I'm off to find more treasures. I hope you have a great weekend!

Hugs~ J

Oh girl! I love your treasures...that pillow is gorgeous that your mawmaw found, and that jewelry box...what a find....such a sweet place for your sentimental treasures too. The necklace that holds perfume reminds me of the ones that my grandma had....she gave me one with a blue stone in it...when I was a little girl...and for the life of me, I don't know what happened to it...it had to have gotten lost, because I know I would have never parted with it. Have fun shopping today...Robert's off on Friday's, so we're getting ready to get out and about too...
Have a beautiful day and don't forget to show us the finds!
xoxo,
Queenie

Jessica, I love your treasures. I really want to go shopping. It's just been to cold here to go anywhere. It's suppose to get up to 30 this weekend. Maybe I can venture outside.

I love the locket and watch. Your Mammaw's is so sweet to you. I love your new pillow.
HUgs, Terrie
