So Do You Want to See a Few of the Treasures???

I am finely feeling a bit better today... Not a 100%, but enough to look around and see I need to clean AND finally play with a few of my new treasures from my trip last week!!! How is it a week has already past????
So this isn't everything...sigh... scary..... I did get a bunch of vintage stuff to go with my doll creations... So I am not going to show you all of that.... Though, Maggie in the previous post... Her dress is made from a piece of vintage fabric or curtain that I got... Wish I had more......

Anyway.... We went to Yore Country Home in Gotham, WI.... I got this sweet colonial lamp... thought it would look great on top of my pie safe.....

I think it fits right in......I can tell hubby I have "always" had it! Giggles!!!!!

This new table square in Tomah, it's Family Heirloom... Had never seen this pattern before... perfect for the blue and yellow kitchen... I love that it's 2 layers, so it's reversible!!!!

Few more goodies... several the FHW squares, love them... great tucking here and there, and they are CHEAP!!! So one can get too many???? Also, a couple of fun tinsel garlands, thinking ahead know... I don't want to say it yet!!!!!

Great old tote... I have some thoughts for this... sometimes it's so hard to use totes just right...So I might not put it out until know..... Then there's that sweet little child's toy stove... one of my "fave's".... I have collected several vintage child/doll house size goodies... I need to find the "perfect" stop for a little display..... Then the vintage plastic Santa in the sleigh....

Great little crock pitcher... super sweet.... not sure where that's going yet..... I have been cleaning.. collecting up a couple of "items" to thin out just a BIT.... that will go to the shop to sell....Never easy to part with anything... But as my taste changes and leans more primitive... there are things that just aren't my "fave's" anymore... I am so lucky to have a outlet to sell them at.....anyway.... you don't need the details on that

AND THEN THERE IS THIS....Are you ready!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!?!?!?!

YUP! My Lamp!!! I love it!!! It is just what I was looking for!!! it's PERFECT!!! Love, Love, Love it!!!!!

So there is more little stuff... some old buggy wheels to do something with....Several presents bought for...well... you know....Couple of little enamelware pieces... one was a little strainer spoon, and a little measuring cup that measures tsp & tblsp.. .... So there you have it... This is how I managed to spend all my money! So I would call that a good trip! Off to clean up a bit more...then really, I need to start crafting, I am SO far behind...for...well you know! OLM

Marie, I love all of your treasures. That big lamp is awesome, I so need one or two of those. Mine just aren't cutting it, lol. So glad to hear you are feeling better. It's too bad when we are sick that the cleaning fairy doesn't show up.

Green Creek Primitives said...

Well Marie looks like you had a great trip full of fantasitc treasures to bring home. I have one of those whaler lamps to, just love it, really like the other lamp, finding the perfect prim lamp is hard. Yes I am in the middle of doing you know what for the next season, its going to be here before you know it, what happened to September! Take care, Hugs Vicky

Tomah is one of my favorite places to go for primitives! Did you go to the Market Place???
Love the lamp!!!
Hope you get to 100% soon!

Love all your goodies but especially the lamp. Isn't it funny how our tastes change and it is still hard to part with some things. I wish I still lived in WI and then maybe we could get together...seems like all my blogger friends are miles and miles away.
Have a great Sunday and Happy Crafting :)

WOWSERS! Love the lamps! You all had fun, and I also love the little stove, I have one like it, it's in my front garden with some little flower people the boys got me one year. Yours looks better than mine! LOL!
I love all the weavers stuff, I have to purchase a few things sometime.
Good luck with the crafting!
