First and foremost I wanted to thank you for all of the comments that I received about my last post. It really, really touched me and I'm so grateful for your kindness, support, thoughtfulness, and friendship. Aren't we so lucky to have this amazing network of friends - it's a gift we keep giving to each other. Thank you so much - I'm giving each of you a huge hug and blowing you a kiss.
Last weekend Steve, Evy, and I went to the Haupt Antiek Market in Rosemount, MN. If any of you have the October 2006 issue of Country Living you will be able to see them featured. It's a very fun place to go. An old house, yard, and out building filled with wonderful antiques. It's open once a month for four days, and each month there is a new theme and all new antiques. They also contributed to the book "Celebrating Home", which I LOVE.
I only got four things as I am saving myself for September 7th when I will go to Junk Bonanza and to Buffalo, MN for the some major antiquing (will be primarily at Buffalo Nickel Antiques and Second Hand Rose).
I got the little clock, called a "Baby Ben". So cute.
I got the little ink well next to the phone. I wish it had the top to it, but maybe I can find an old pen that would look good sticking out of it. I think my dad had one, I'll have to ask my mom.
I found this large cloche - I do love a good cloche ya know. I have three now, small, medium, and large. It works great on the cake stand.
And finally, I wanted to share with you a wonderful candle find - 1803 Candles. They smell sooo amazing, are handmade, and are soy. They are wonderful!!! Here are the two that I have and I love them!! You can order them online - I HIGHLY recommend them.
The packaging is so cute and uses regular canning jars. Farmhouse is my favorite of the two, but I really like both of them very much.
Evy and I are off to get her a hair trim at Kid's Hair, then to Michael's for some Martha Stewart supplies, and then to the mall to do a bit of shopping for Evy and I. Sounds like a super day I think. Then, for tonight, Steve and I will be watching "Midsomer Murders - Garden of Death" we just got in the mail from Netflix. Last night it was just party, party, party as we watched "Highschool Musical 2". Pizza, popcorn, chocolate - a very fun night!
Thank you again for being my supporters, visitors, and friends. We are all so fortunate to have this forum to share our thoughts, hobbies, and general goings on in our lives.
Thank you and have a wonderful weekend!!
