Check this little cutie out and a few other things I got!!


This is what I got on our date on Saturday to the Antique mall!! It was one of those things you walk right up to and just know you're gonna buy it!! And we did!! LOL After I finish this spot up in the yard I'll show more. Right now I have my pansies in there I haven't planted yet. Our Michigan weather has been alittle chilly still and I haven't wanted to be outside planting!! LOL We had a great date and was gone all day. I had to laugh at myself I was in bed and asleep before 9:00 pm!! 

 
These also came from the Antique Mall. I love this potholder and it has the colors of my kitchen in it. And I also have this thing about jars!! LOL And I loved the shape of this one and the zinc lid. The prairie doll I just had to have!! LOL She's so sweet!! She is upcycled from clothes on part of her. I always like that!!


Can you believe I got this awesome Prim and Grubby Sweet Annie salt shaker doll from a Boy Scout Fund raiser sale at the Catholic Church!! I love these kinda sales cuz people donate some great stuff!!


I love old vintage sewing things! And this tomato pincushion is so cute. I have quite a few pin cushions but there's always room for one more!! LOL And the apron pattern is so vintage and looks easy to make.


Here are a few more things I got too. Some birdies for my nests I make and a pie plate and this wooden pig! Isn't he cute? I think Pigs and Cows are making come back!!


I also got this vintage coffee can and some more salt shakers, a cute dog, and wooden spools! I'll be planting in the coffee can. I had an awesome vintage thrifting week!!



 And this sweet rag doll is my newest creation! She'll be in my Esty Shoppe this week!! She is smaller than my other ones. I had alot of fun creating and designing her! Her name is "Libbie Rose" and her dress material also came from the Antique Mall but I couldn't wait to use it!! You can see it on the tray I have her on. It's really pretty. She is all hand stitched!! The sun was perfect today for some grubby thyme outside!!! Alittle chilly but still sunny!! I'm lovin it!!
XOXO Love, Fran.

Lucky girl, Fran!! You did have an awesome time antiquing! Good for you my friend, and what awesome goodies.

I had a scooter just like that when I was little, but it was more of a turquoise. It eventually was used by both brothers, but have no idea what happened to it....So fun to see things from our past, don't you think?

Have a beautiful week and can't wait to see your latest dollies!

I'm so happy you found some special things to bring home with you Fran!! First your new doll is awesome... and the fabric you bought is perfect!!

The lil scooter is cute too and I love your coffee to plant in! What will you put in your shakers? I keep german glass glitter in mine, and I have to tell you that I collect vintage tomato pincushions too! I keep them all together in one big jar. I love the super old ones but they're hard to find. I can't believe you found the prim annie at a catholic church sale! haha You found favor! ;) God knows what you like!

Oh what a fun piece Fran!! It's gonna look great in the flower bed with flowers in the seat and surrounding it!

I'm always snapping up jars too, of all sizes and shapes. To have one with a zinc lid is even better. =] I love old sewing notions too. I've wanted to start collecting old pin cushions like the tomatoes and such but ever since I've decided that, I can never find any. Grr! That's the way it always is with me, haha. I always have to dig through sewing baskets and boxes when I come across them, they are so fun to dig through! Anyway, that is a really cute pin cushion! Love the old pattern too. Lots of great finds at the antique mall, good for you girl!

Libbie Rose is so cute, love her dress material!

Hi Aunt Frannie!!

Oh my gosh, LOVE that bike! The colors, the style, shape, everything about it is pure scrumptiousness.

How is your Etsy shop going? It's nice to have a little side thing going, even if just for shits and giggles. : )

Love ya!

Hi Auntie,

I'm thinking of closing my blog. It seems like I just don't have anything interesting to write about anymore. I feel like I'm in a rut. What do you think?
