Gosh this summer is flying by so fast!! I cannot keep up :) I am back(3 weeks ago) form a nice trip back to the midwest. The rains really were as bad as we saw them on the news. It never seems that bad until you are there. The sidewalks filled with sand bags, roads, picnic areas etc... washed out.
My great aunt turned 97 and is sharp as a tack!! Had a nice family reunion. I love being out on the farm with no worries, it is so peaceful and quiet. Got a little treasure hunting it when time allowed. I hope to go back this fall to really shop. Have some new pictures listed of a few goodies bought along the way.
Thanks so much to a dear gal pal Kerry with SHABBYVILLA, she is going to feature me on her blog this next week!! I am so excited she found me and asked if she could feature me on her blog, that was so unexpected and nice of her. Please check her ouy her treasures are GREAT!!!
Enjoy, Erin

Please enjoy of few of my favorite finds. I am out daily treasure hunting and try to go on at least 3-4 out of state buying trips back to the midwest every year., with the price of gas we may have to cut back this year.
We are leaving Wed 6-25 to head through Nebraska on our way to our yearly family reunion in Iowa , then on through Kansas heading back home by July 1st. I hope they are not all under water, the rain and flooding in the midwest is so sad.
I try to stop at every "ANTIQUES" sign I see!!! My husband likes me to have it all mapped out of where we are stopping, but that does not always happen. We take out 7 year old nephew with us to pass the time and he loves to swim at the hotel pools :~)
I will be out treasure hunting until July 1 st, check back often for more great listings coming soon.
