Shopping helps~

Ok, so work and life has been a bit stressful of late. I have not taken anytime off, let alone shop. So my friend Barb asked if I was in the mood for a road trip?? Road trip? I'm in. Her cute as a button daughter Shannon was coming too. I have gone with her and Shannon before. Love going with them. We shop alike, poke and look, find things for each other and laugh a lot. So they come by early in the morning and we leave for Connecticut. I had never been to these antique shops before and I do love new adventures.

                      Love this sweet little brown jug and the one behind it. I got them on our first stop.
                          What a great view, but I think I need a bucket bench to display my treasures.
 A great little place in called the Town Trader in R.I. had this basket and was just such a pretty shop...I want to go back and I can always use another basket!

By now the trunk is full and Shannon is kind of buried in the back. She is such a sweetheart and was still smiling as she squeezed in with her treasures and mine and Barb's.

I have stuff on the floor and in my lap and Barb had the camera.....I did not get a picture of her, but next time for sure.

My pewter sugar and creamer.

I still love the little brown jug the best. Almost the best, because having good friends who come to the rescue by taking you junking, antiquing for the day, can not be replaced by anything!
Thanks Barb and Shannon for a fun day.

There's nothing like a road trip mini-vacation with one or 2 friends!

Great finds. Nothing is better than a shopping trip with friends. I'm going to Ohio Amish country Tuesday with my cousin. Can't wait to visit the shops there, especially Country Gatherings.
