Happy Labor Day weekend!
It wouldn't feel like a holiday weekend for me at all since I work "retail" and don't have Monday off...except that we planned a trip to visit the campus at Colorado State University Fort Collins on Friday and I took a day off for that -- so I got a 3 day weekend anyway! Funny, I didn't even plan it that way, but it's nice when something in life works out, isn't it?
It was a nice way to spend a free Friday, with my family, thinking about the future.
We went up mid morning, though the campus tour wasn't until 2 pm, because I have never been to Fort Collins and wanted to look around a bit.
My friend Suzanne lives nearby and she suggested this antique mall, which was just about the perfect size for the little bit of time I was able to
try my husband and son's patience allot to shopping!
It was fun to look around even though I didn't end up buying a single thing!
It's beginning to look like autumn
I wish I had room in my house to set out rusty chairs and display china on them
I was tempted to buy this antique wedding keepsake because it was under priced, but if you know me you know I don't have room on any of my walls for anything!
Every time I go junking I want a bird cage.
Really sweet display, under glass.
This little embroidered linen sewing basket almost came home with me.
Because I need another sewing basket. Not.
Of course, everywhere you look was burlap.
It was a burlap-a-looza!
A woman after my own heart...making pretty things from lovely old linens!
These were lavender sachets.
Such a cheery color on this footstool.
I liked the use of old wood and spoons to hold tea lights.
I snapped this photo of the drawers-as-cabinets because I had recently listed one of those liquor dispensers at work...and thought it was pretty nifty.
This made me laugh out loud: what the inside of an accordion looks like.
Lots of metal, including that dilapidated pumpkin from a gas can -- clever!
'Not sure about hanging a red cylinder inside a frame...?
I liked how this gal foofed up a little trophy.
Dennis and Ben came to find me after about 45 min., when I has asked for 1 hour and 15 min. To punish them, I made them go with me to another store!
A yard full of metal set out to rust.
I think this pile of windows would have made such a cute photo...if not for that fire extinguisher!
'LOVE this baby display, in a clear hat box!
A bowl of buttons to pick through!
This would be so cute in my own front yard -- full of seasonal displays -- right?
Thanks for coming shopping with me!
I hope you are having a lovely Labor Day weekend, too.
