Show and Tell

I have been having fun at the antique and thrift stores in my town lately, and thought I would show you a few of my favorite finds - a little Friday Show and Tell:

Painted Horses

These paint-by-number horses caught my eye out of a stack of other paintings. I love the colors and the quality about them.

Only like my favorite movie ever!! I was so excited to find this record for only .99 at a thrift store in Burbank. Faith was jealous, until she found another one at different store - for only .50.

Serving plate from England. Love the colors.

This pewter heart was at one of the many antique shops on Main St. in Ventura. I have a few pieces of jewelry that I wear daily (wedding rings, a necklace) that I don't like to wear while I'm sleeping, so this is a perfect bedside table jewelry box.

It is safe to say that I'm all thrifted/antiqued out for this month...It's kind of become an addiction. Last night I dreamt that I was in a thrift store that was pretty much empty, save for an entire shelf of vintage wallpaper books. I was in heaven!!! Seriously, I did not want to wake up it was that good. I often have dreams that are so good, I don't want to wake up because somehow in my dream I know that I'm dreaming and if I wake up it will all go away. On the other hand, if its a bad dream I can make myself wake up and get out of whatever horrible situation I've dreamt myself into. Anyone else do that?

Oh well, we'll save the dream analysis for later. Have a wonderful weekend!
