A couple of years ago I started an

Fabric Shopping....

Saturday I spent shopping for a certain fabric at one of my favorite places to purchase fabric....
Fabric Factory in OKC.
Unfortunately, I did not find that fabric ...but found a wonderful piece to create an awning for over my kitchen sink
 Before....Check back later for the "After"!

and a darling piece of fabric for a "circus themed" table cloth I have in mind. 
 "All for $5.00 per yard!"
Meeting my friend Lori for lunch across the street from some of the best antique shopping in OKC topped off a beautiful day. 
If in OKC....you have to check out the shopping on Western Ave. .....you'll have to much fun.

Treasure's Galore....

The past week I have had way to much fun....treasure hunting.  Searching in thrift stores, antique shops and estate sales.
I found a broad range of goodies....
From Poodles, Teacups, Dolls, Books... to a beautiful lithograph of Our Lady of Fatima.
 Poodles and a patriotic figurine for me, 
 I had the larger drummer boy and came across the darling one on the right at the Flea Market in Shawnee...I couldn't believe it!!!


teacups for a friends 2 year old grand daughters birthday party,  a nurse doll for a young friend in nursing school, two darling 1950's elves, 

books to sale and the lithograph for my parlor area.  I have had the best time....shopping with friends and my husband,  who actually really enjoyed a fun new antique store I found the other day.  With it being a week before Easter.....I think my efforts should be toward a new dress for Violet and preparing for our family Easter gathering.
