Shopped Til I Dropped!

Hi blogerettes!  I have missed you all so much.  I've been gone for three days and it seems like forever!  I couldn't use my computer at my brother's house because he had no internet!  Can you imagine life without internet???  So, I am just now catching up on your comments and posts.

I spent three days with my sister and brother and we, literally, shopped until we dropped!  Just a sample below of some of the shops, plus all day Saturday at the flea market!

I know what you're thinking, Anthropologie!  Believe me I couldn't do this store all the time because a person could go broke.  But,
this time I did splurge just a little.  Maybe later, I'll show you what's in the bags.

Saturday was a sunny warm day for the flea market.

Love this iron stuff.......check out the dragon fly!

More iron the mermaids and the birdcage....
Here's a photo of some of my loot from the flea market

I'm going to have lots of things to post about in the next few weeks
and hundreds of projects to finish up for my booth.
I plan to show you some good stuff soon and
get ready for my 300th follower giveaway!

Meet, brother's newly adopted
peekapoo puppy........isn't he cute?

Well, I'm outta here for now.  I'm going to try and answer a few comments and visit a few blogs.  I missed you all so much.

Hi Sissie...glad you're back! I can't wait to see what goodies you brought us.

Hi Sissie!

So nice to have you back and can't wait to see all your treasures you found.


Sandy~Romantique Inspirations~ said...

Hi Sissie, it looks like a lot of goodies are coming up.... looking forward to it, and by what I can see the vintage sign with the young girl is very interesting.... are you selling that?

What a darling little face on that puppy and I'm glad your brother got it at a adoption agency. That makes me very happy!!

Love & Joy*

Terri Smith said...

Hi Sissie. Love that babyfaced new puppy! But when I saw the "dragonfly," that's when my jaw dropped. Girl..I must live in the wrong part of the country because WE NEVER come across goodies like this! You lucky girl!

My name is PJ. said...

How ironic would it be for me to steal Bandit? You know...steal/swipe/take? He's darn cute. Best to keep him far away from me.. ;)

I'll be watching to see all your treasures!!

Tracie said...

I love all of that iron stuff, but the dragonfly is definitely the best! How cute!

But not as cute as that dog...oh my goodness, I feel myself starting to sneeze just looking at all that furry cuteness (but that wouldn't stop me from cuddling and kissing him!)
