Good Monday Morning Blog Friends!

I hope everyone had a chance to enjoy this past weekend, I know I did. The temps were perfect here, it was a gorgeous Autumn day, AND it was my birthday! So my husband and I started out early in the morning, had a wonderful breakfast out, and then we did my favorite thing of all.........antique and thrift store shopping! I was on the hunt for a couple of side tables for my living room, but everything was larger then I was looking for, but oh the eye candy during the hunt! We did hit a couple of resale shops, and I found this plate. I am not sure what I will do with it right now, but it will find a new home somewhere. It was a steal at 1.50, can't beat that.

I also came across this remote control caddy. I already have plans of how I want to prim this up, but I don't know that I will use if for a remote holder. I can see grubby candles, wrapped in quilt fabric, and homemade soap in the other section. I think the possibilities are endless with this one.

Now this I did not get yesterday, but I wanted to share it with you anyway. I picked this up at a garage sale this summer, and have just been to busy to get it repainted. I am hoping to tackle this project this week, and wanted a before picture to show you.
After we were done resale shopping we did hit a couple of primitive shoppes here in town. My favorite shop is called "Two Sisters" and ladies can I spend the money in there.....:) But I actually did quite well yestereday and only came away with a braided runner for my fireplace, and another small one for my tart burner. I have my eye on a couple more things though, so I am already looking forward to the next trip.
Hope everyone has a great upcoming week! I am still busy doing fall items, and filling orders, but I hope to be back later this week to show you my Trash to Treasure items all redone! As always till next time.......Blessing to All!
