My Latest Antique Finds

3.08.2016

When I went out to lunch with my mom and sister last Thursday we stopped at our favorite antique store and did some shopping. I think I'm the only person who bought anything and as you look at what came home with me I will explain our day with some strange weather.



The day started sunny and chilly, but the forecast was a high of 59 and rain late in the afternoon and evening. Perfect day for lunch and shopping.....so we thought.

Before my mom and I ever got to my sister's house it had gotten quite cloudy and dark as if it would rain any minute. So after looking at my sister's new furniture, appliances, and new kitchen back splash we headed to lunch.

While we were having lunch in the cutest little restaurant in Alpharetta called Mitties Cafe on Main, for you locals, it started raining and the temperature was staying cold.

After lunch we went shopping at the local antique mall The Queen Of Hearts which is my favorite to check out. While shopping my sister starts getting texts from her hubby telling her that it is snowing and sleeting where she lives and other surrounding areas. What??? Snow?? No, way!!

Of course the roads were too warm for problems, but we headed on home just in case. My mom was getting nervous about the roads. After my mom and I left my sister's we did see an area close to her on our way home that had gotten quite a bit of snow. It was like a winter wonderland in a short amount of time.
This wasn't forecasted and was such a fluke.

We had a good day together though spite the weather.

After I got home Mr. Savvy told me I missed the prettiest snowfall with huge flakes. Our area was not white so it had melted and it was just raining.

Above are my finds.
I got a great buy on the vintage bamboo bed tray and the bunnies will come in handy this spring. Of course I had to have the little cow creamer. It was only $4. It is much shorter than the normal creamer.

Have a great day and see y'all back tonight for Wow Us Wednesdays at 7 et.

  2. Too funny. I was speaking with an acquaintance last night about the antique shows he sells in and one of the cities/towns he mentioned was Alpharetta! Hubby and I have been lucky on some of our antiquing trips lately! He more so than I. LOL That always seems to happen.

    2. Yes, I know they have more locations. I shop the one in Buford, too since I live here. I don't care for the booths at Buford as much as the Alpharetta store.

  13. FYI-The Queen of Hearts has other locations in the Metro Atlanta area besides just Alpharetta and they all have different merchandise. I feel like the one near the Mall of Georgia has much better prices than Alpharetta.

    Weather...In 30 minutes last Thursday I had 5" of sleet on the windshield of my car while at my mom's long term care facility in Snellville...I live in Loganville. The metro area could of been in a "world of hurt" several times this season if the temperatures had dropped. I'm glad Spring appears to have sprung around town.

  14. I want bunnies like those for MY garden! I think the weather is crazy just about everywhere. This week here in mid-Michigan we are having 60 and 70 degree weather after freezing temps last week. I'm not complaining, tho'. I'm so ready for warm weather!

    2. Lucy,
      Try http://www.queenofheartsantiques-interiors.com/directions-one in Marietta, downtown Marietta at the square, Woodstock Market off I-75 (across the street is another antique mall but I do not know the name.)
      Do a google search and see if you will be near any of these in Cobb County. Happy Shopping!

  17. I'm a huge bunny fan, and the tray and creamer are great finds, too. Well done. A bit of snow, eh? Always fun when it's not the norm in a region...we get plenty here in upstate NY, but glad to say we've had hardly any this winter. We're expecting a very uncommon high of 70F today, before the temps return to a more normal mid-40s-50. I expect it'll be almost as nice as GA! Spring is certainly coming!
