This summer August is crazy full with missions trips overseas.
So, instead of our usual big summer vacation, we've been taking a day or two here and there to getaway.
Last week we took a couple of days away at the beach.
Besides my top favorite activity, walking by the sea,
I also enjoyed some time at my favorite antique shops.
Little Antique Mall in Lincoln City is one I go to often.
(Wouldn't that old ice cream cone sign be cute in a vacation home?)
Blue transferware and Franciscan's apple pattern dishes,
are two things I already have a dish cabinet full of!
Thirty-nine years ago I received some mixing bowls in this pattern for a wedding gift.
Now I see them frequently in antique stores!
This Watt's apple pattern bowl and pitcher would go with a few pieces I already have.
I love that old bread display cabinet.
I kind of wish I would have brought this little ironstone pitcher home with me.
That old wooden scoop would look great on my bread board gallery wall.
This little rustic table caught my eye right away.
But, I came home from the antique mall empty handed.
We're getting rid of stuff instead of adding stuff, because...
our home sweet home of sixteen years is on the market!
For three years we've talked about moving closer to our church,
(my husband is a pastor).
So, with the real estate market really good in our area, it seems like now is the time!
We will see what happens.
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday everyone
a safe and BLESSED weekend!
