Same Day Finds



Aren't these the dearest little old brown shoes? While shopping in Connecticut just before Christmas...this sweet pair of leather button shoes was marked 50% off in a booth at an antique mall in Essex...
... You know how I love my vintage baby shoes...
...and a really good sale!
...do you have a shoe obsession too?
...Jimmy Choos?



That very same day we were browsing at Taken For Granite in Stony Creek and I found this fabulous frame. I'm thinking it will look wonderful with my mercury glass and silver gazing ball that sit on top of the piano...
In all the hub bub of the holidays I forgot to share these with you and I didn't want you to think I was holding out!

Long hours at the office this week....the weekend can't come soon enough!
I'm going to make Valentines for a special party coming up soon!
Hope your week is going well!
:)

Those shoes are a wonderful find. It is amazing to me that there is still so much of these wonderful treasures floating around out there just waiting for the right person to come along and claim them. The frame is quite lovely too. The weekend starts today here. So happy for that. Have a great day! :) Tammy
