White Button Heart

Today was a fun day.
It was warm and sunny...not a cloud in the sky!
  Dad and I went to a church sale 
 where we found a few interesting things... be shared once I have a chance to take pics.

Tomorrow we are headed to Renningers
 to the Antique Extravaganza...

 ...and then to a store nearby
 that sells all the materials for making dollhouses.

My Dad makes the most wonderful dollhouses
 and he is working on a doozy of one right now!
Photos to be shared in a later post as well.

             Now...need some sleep so I can get up early for Renningers!

Hope you all have good things
 planned for the weekend!

As always, I thank you all for your kind comments.

The button heart is so cute! Can't wait to see your father's dollhouses that he makes!

Love that white button heart tray! I would love to go treasure hunting today, but it is a terrible, yucky rainy day here - only good for staying snug and cozy at home.

Full Circle Creations said...

Love it. I have a whole jar of my grandma's antique buttons..just might have to try this.

How can anything so simple be sooo beautiful! Great idea and execution on the button heart!! Lovely presents from your sister and so nice that you've gotten to see your dad. [ It's snowing in upstate NY right now].
Dollhouse? Did you say Dollhouse? I cannot wait!!

Evi said...

so, that is where you are today, you lucky girl!!!!!
You have a way with the heart and wish I had a tray like this for my candles on the diningroom table. Very pretty.
My one problem with blogger was fixed, but left me with another...and you will be proud of me...I fixed it by MYSELF, yipee! You are a great teacher. You made me not be too afraid and take a chance. It worked!
Love you and wish I could be there too.
Hugs from a snowy New York,
PS. Hello to your Dad, looking forward to seeing the doll house.

Bleudelavande said...

Love the sweet heart!!!! I wish you an amazing day for tomorrow.

Suz said...

You are so lucky to have a dad who makes dollhouses! I am so impressed! Love that heart...and especially the individual buttons which look like little flowers!!!

I have often wondered, you seem to have so many stores that you photograph. How do you manage that? Do you go in and ask? Do you know most of these people?

ThreeOldKeys said...

what a beautiful heart - such a contrast. i had to look really close for signs of glue ... whew ... i think they're just arranged there ... :)

i'll watch for the dollhouse ... the new finds ... i love your beautiful blog!

Cheryl said...

Love the button heart and that gives me an idea.....thanks!
Hope you make some great finds
while in Florida.
Have fun,

Laura- the button heart is fabulous! I love Rinegars! It's a great flea market- I use to go there with my parents all the time- ( they wintered in Florida and I would go down for a visit).

I wil be anxious to see the treasures you found and also want to see the doll house!

Enjoy your visit--- trust me my friend- you are making some precious memories--
