~**A Little Pink In The Fall**~

Hi everyone, I hope your having a lovely week!
It's been stormy here for the past few days, we actually had thunder and lighting on and off throughout the whole day yesterday, it was fantastic! One of my favorite things to do on a rainy day besides creating is antiquing, don't ask me why I like getting out there and getting soaked , but I just love it.
And for my hard earned efforts, I found some great things!
One of the treasures I had to put on lay-away, but at least next month it will be mine!!I can't wait to show you all.
I also went a little crazy again on Etsy, darn you Etsy!! I'll show you those goodies when I get them.

I couldn't pass up these gorgeous flowers at Trader Joe's, even though it's Fall, I had to get these pretty pink roses!

I picked up this great Crown jar for next to nothing! We love that, right!

I added my vintage green bench to my dining table, the kids love sitting on it to eat.

Some vintage books tied up with vintage seam binding and finished with a vintage key.

Pink roses in ironstone placed on a chippy mantle, love it!

I found this great display box at Home Goods, it totally looks vintage and will be perfect to display my designs in. 

A last look of loveliness.

Today I'm joining Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday. Please check out the other fabulous participants at Cindy's place.
Have a great day and don't forget to enter my giveaway if you haven't done so already.
