Finds From The Weekend

What a great weekend! I went for a visit to see my parents. It’s always so nice to go see them, especially by myself. It gives us time to focus on each other and that’s always special!

One thing I LOVE to do is visit a huge home decorating store and an awesome antique shop. My sweet parents graciously indulge me, of course they love these places just as much as I do. Both of these stores are located in old mills. These businesses have certainly repurposed old buildings.


The home décor store is located in Jeffereson, Georgia. Not only do they offer the “fixings” for arrangements, they also create beautiful arrangements. I picked up a wood bowl, a few stuffed scarecrows and some elements to create an arrangement. I’ll have to post my final creation over the next few weeks.


The antique shop (above) is located in Monroe, Georgia in an old cotton mill. This is a beautiful building and I would love to just go around it and photograph all of its glory! Inside? Well, inside there is an overwhelming about of beauty too! I could have spent hours and hours there!


Old tools, an old soda fountain that works and great 8-track tapes. Remember those anyone?


Retro freezer and a great old sign. That door? That door was awesome! It’s a fire door and the date on it is from the 40’s.


Fun pictures! Not the greatest of me, but what the heck! It was fun!


Some of my great finds: lots of old books, two almost identical Raggedy Anns, dishes from the 40’s (I’m replacing all my current dishes) and two pumpkin guys (these actually came from the home décor store). Love!


The cutest book was a kid’s cookbook from 1950. I love the simplicity of the recipes and the beautiful illustrations. The frankfurter recipe is so funny! Love this so much!

Now, for my big find. I’ve been on the lookout for one of these for years and finally scored it!! Love!!!


Look for more posts about my visit with my parents in the following days!
