One Happy Gal

If you have never been to Round Top sure need to add this to your bucket list.  

This past weekend was a first for Sam and I.   We traveled with our long time friends {Joe and Marsha} down to the little country towns of Warrenton and Round Top.   I would venture to say that the population of farm animals, way exceeds 77.......which is the exact count on the Round Top population sign. {people count you know}  

Each year in the Spring and in the Fall......this small community is the host to two BIG "Antique Festivals."

Now....lets get straight to my finds!!

This my friends is just one of my favorite finds.   It's a "Homer Laughlin - Virginia Rose" bowl.   This particular pattern is what my grandmother for this reason, I love it too.   

Sam purchased a couple of cute "Cruet's" to add to our collection of 11.  This small one makes a total of 12 that we now have.   {Watch for my post on Cruet's}

Two fabulous finds here!!  Sam was able to negotiate a fabulous price on the "Liberty Blue" soup terrain and I purchased 16 of the green and pink plates for a cheap, cheap price!

And now it's time to show you my all time favorite find!   This is something that I've been looking for since 2010 and ......I found one!!

A  small "Shopping Cart"

In my search....I have only found two of the boogers, and both of them were marked way too high!!!!

I am in Love!!!!

This one find was well worth the very low price that I paid for the thing..... $$

Just imagine all of the things that one can do with an old (small) grocery cart!!  Fill it with a fruit basket, put all your extra utensils in a huge crock and store them in the cart, fill it with dish towels, oh my.....the uses are MANY!!  And...the thing is so stinking cute!!

......change the look of your room just by parking this princess in various places....

This trip was well worth the many miles we traveled to get there.....We laughed until we almost cried {Several Times}....We ate a lot of gooooood food......The weather was GREAT.....We saw some gorgeous fields of Bluebonnets and Indian paint brushes......


I found my buggy!!

Woo hoo.....I'm one happy gal

I have a lot of catching up to do on each of your blogs..

Woo hoo! Congrats on your great find! I love to go to Antique fairs, etc, but I'm running out of space for them. Your rose bowl is so pretty and I'd love to see fields of Bluebonnets, that would be awesome! Have a good week. Hugs

The shopping cart is awesome, and even better is what you have done with it!! I am going to look online for one. And next is the gorgeous soup tureen. You make me really want to go to an antique mall, so I have scheduled a trip to the biggest one in the area. I am for sure going to list some of these things!

Everything about your trip sounds like fun, Shug!
Oh, I can see you doing so much with that sweet cart.

I love your little shopping cart! Great finds make for a great outing for sure.

Hi Shug!

Great finds!! You really did hit the jack-pot with the little shopping cart, I don't think I've ever seen one?! I really need to go to the South to find a good flea market. When my husband worked in Tennessee, we found some of the most wonderful antique shops, but here in Idaho, people must hold onto things forever!!!

The green and pink plates are precious - I love all your finds, thanks for sharing!

Super finds! I would love to have one of the little buggys, but I have not ever seen one around here. Congrats!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Great finds, Shug! I love finding a great place to shop. There are so many around, but I have so little room for anything else. lol! But that doesn't stop me from looking when I get a chance. I just can't pass up a real bargain when I find one. Sounds like you kids had fun!

I am smiling from ear to ear as I read this. It's so fun to find that "find" that you have been looking for. So happy for you. I like all your finds and what a fun weekend trip. Might have to put this on my "bucket list." Blessings!

Michelle said...

That is a sweet shopping cart!
