I am suffering from a tooth abscess and have to wait to see my dentist - I have had a root canal so there is little pain.
This yawning baby was a birthday present from my sister-in-law.
What a cutie.
He's a chalkware night light.
For my birthday month of December, Linda of A La Carte came down to see me, shop and eat cake.
Here we are starting off the journey from Riverfront Antique Mall.
The Community Thrift Store in North Augusta was having a 50% off sale.
They were bursting at the seams with goodies.
There's Linda combing through the china and glassware.
Next we went to Marketplace Antiques on Broad Street in Augusta.
Whatever you collect can be found here.
This is the upstairs.
For lunch we had Curious George sandwiches for nutrition at Boll Weevil Cafe.
We saved half our sandwiches for supper.
So we could overindulge in coffee toffee cake with raspberry drizzle.
Yes, it is that HUGE!
The two of us could not finish.
I took a chunk home for later.
We finished the afternoon back at Riverfront after a disappointing trip to a Goodwill where we found nothing!
Linda promises to shop the entire antique mall in one day.
Linda, many have promised but few have accomplished this task!
Yes, she bought bottle brush trees!
So what did I buy?
At Community Thrift I found this vanity mirror frame.
The yo yo doll will be dismembered for the yo yo's.
The bottle brush tree can be straightened and bleached and dyed.
The book and the sheep are quite happy they will not be tortured at all.
I found the stable.
Linda found the figurines - half of them chalkware and half plastic - all old.
Thanks, Linda, for letting me have them.
We did not even find ONE orphan Baby Jesus.
At Marketplace Antiques I found this French catalog from early 1900's selling antique reproductions.
Small pieces, fabrics and draperies are listed with the dimensions and price.
I plan to save the catalog and scan the pages into the computer for projects.
And finally porcelain door knobs.
These will be in my Etsy shop in the new year.
Linda and I had a wonderful time and have made plans for more junkin' adventures.
If you live within traveling distance of Augusta, Georgia, come on and visit me for the day.
