Retail Therapy

I completely do not know what happened to this post! The whole thing disappeared without warning. I am attempting to recall what I said and what places I had been to and what sites I had linked up to but I am struggling. If anybody has a clue how to restore please let me know. For now this what I can recall:

I live in New England and there has been mucho snow! We needed a break and so shopping it was! We went to Vintage Thymes Monthly Market. They are only open three days every month but boy do they pack a lot into that three days!

My 16 year old just loved this vintage wedding dress:

They were celebrating Valentine's Day and love was in the air.

Vintage Thymes hosted a guest exhibitor that I first learned of on a trip to Cape Cod. Her items we lovely and made me long for the sand between my toes.

Simply Vintage

We stopped at several different shops in the old converted WinSmith Mill.

I had a nice conversation with Deb at Diggin Daisy's who was having a sale on anything Italian made in honor of Carnavale. I picked up some lovely glass wear and couldn't beat the price.

Bluebird Studios inspired me with a frame and paper flower.

I found another treasure at the Vintage Peacock.


When all was said and done we headed home with our treasures.

I filled my $5 pitcher with some grocery store flowers and put up the garland I made. I used paper paint samples from the home improvement store and punched out the shapes. I sandwiched twine between the disks of paper using my glue gun to form the garland. I draped it over the mirror in the dining room.

I had a wonderful day with my girls and they were so sweet to bring me some flowers to add even more beauty to our home.

Well, this is an abridged edition of what was originally written. My apologies for the mix up. I am trying to get it straightened out. AHHHHHHHHH!!!!
