~*Flea Markets & a Peddlers Sale*~

My mom and I had a wonderful, shop til you drop trip in Southern California this past weekend going to flea markets and a peddlers sale. We go on this trip a couple times a year, just me and my mom, no boys/ men allowed, haha! Over the course of several years we have always taken the same route, hitting some antique stores along the way before we get to our destination.

This time was different. Thanks to this wonderful world of blogging we learned about a city that is on our path but never would have known about the treasures that were there. We stopped off in Riverside California. Our first store to visit was Old Glory General Store. To see some fabulous pictures of the store, check out Heather's blog, the pictures she took are amazing. The top picture on my blog, is the one I took, love the green ceiling and that wrought iron fence is just fab-lu-lous!! This shop is absolutely amazing loaded with the best of the best antique and vintage goodies. Here's what I bought, this is the picture taken in the store

and these are them in my home.

Tattered and torn, vintage lampshade frames. L O V E them!! I bought all 6 not leaving any to share with any one else, I can be selfish that way:))

So many decorating possibilities, what would you do with them?

Would you like to see a pink vintage window, the prettiest type writer you ever saw and a funky pink hat, plus many more pictures of some of the treasures we bought? Well, stay tuned and I'll share them all in the next couple of days, I promise.

It feels so good to be back, to connect and share with my loyal readers, I appreciate every single one of you!
