Antiqueing trip and purchases......

We had a great trip on Friday and managed to find a few treasures. I'm amazed sometimes at the prices in small towns and it makes me realize what great prices we still have in Ozark. We went to Cabool and then to Houston. It was a beautiful day for a road trip. A little nippy but bright sunshine. The linens in my picture are gorgeous. The lady told me they were Italian & appear to be made from linen. The cases are made like shams so they completely cover the pillow and I don't think they've ever been used. I intend to do bedding for an old iron bed for spring open house so if I'm sticking these back until I get my bedding made up. I'm going to pull out my Carolyn Westbrooke book and try to get inspiration.

This is my day at Leola's. After a busy weekend, things are kind of in disarray so have my work cut out for me. Hope everyone has a good week.

$1.39 for gas, I paid $1.59 the other day...but it was worth the trip with the sun out!

Manleys' is in Muscatine, just up the road from me in the downtown area, you would love their shop, they are the nicest people too.

Happy shopping...icky today, 4 dogs to groom...
