9-10-11

9.10.2011

I didn't even realize that the numbers for my birthday today are 9-10-11. So cool! Had a great shopping day today at my favorite antique mall in Alpharetta. My daughter and miss Leila met me there since they were in the area at the time and we had fun shopping. Of course everyone was ooing and aaahing over Leila. She had on her GA bulldogs shirt and bow today. I found lots of loot. Let's take a look.


Just look at all this stuff.

I was so thrilled to find this pitcher. It is the same shape as a green and white one I already have. This one is so perfect with the cows and sheep on it and in blue.

I think this is my favorite find today. It was originally $85 and I got it for $35!

Great old copper pot to hang from my pot rack.

Love the old iron handle of the pot.


For some reason these old stone bottles and crocks with writing are very appealing to me.
Only $7.

Look at this great wooden letter holder. Hung it here on the wall for our mail since we really don't have an office for it. I may use this in a different way later. This was only $7, too.

Got this antler for its unusual shape. It even still has the hair on it at the end. Didn't get a picture of it.

And this little squirrel candle holder will be put to good use this fall, I'm sure.
 My daughter bought the squirrel holder and the blue and white pitcher for me.
Thanks daughter!

 The day still isn't over. We are going to meet our daughter, son in law, and Leila at Carrabbas for dinner. Yum yum.

Thanks you guys for all the birthday wishes!

    I am happy your sister is blogging. She has a great flair for it like you. Not sure I will ever be blogging again. But you never know.

    Take care and talk to you later!

  64. Great finds! I really like the milk pitcher and the sugar jar. You are right, the handle of the copper pot is really cool! My fav of your finds is the letter holder. It is the "basket" at the bottom that caught my eye! That is really unique! My other fav of your finds is the squirrel candle holder! So cute!

    Happy birthday! Hope you enjoyed Carrabas! Ymmmmm is right!
