MY WEEKEND FINDS

I LEFT FRIDAY @ 5:00 AM IT RAINED UNTIL SATURDAY NITE; YOU COULD SAY I STARTED OUT WITH MY HUSBAND & ENDED UP WITH "HURRICANE DAN"; SO I WENT TO TAG SALES, THRIFT STORES & ANTIQUE SHOPS, THE VAN WAS ALMOST FULL & I WORRIED I WOULDN'T HAVE ROOM FOR THE ELEPHANTS TRUNK, BUT FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO REALLY KNOW ME, I WOULD HAVE RIDDEN HOME ON THE ROOF :), SO GRAB SOME TEA, SIT BACK & ENJOY.









A TROLLEY ON THE ROAD????



THIS IS THE TRUCK I NEED FOR JUNKIN'




ON THE WAY TO MY GUYS SHOP I WENT THROUGH LITCHFIELD CT



ON THE WAY THROUGH LITCHFIELD I HAD TO STOP AT SUSAN ST. JAMES HOUSE TO TAKE A PIC, SHE PLAYED ON MACMILLAN & WIFE TV SHOW & KATE & ALLY TV SHOW, THIS IS HER HUSBANDS CHILDHOOD HOME.
