Withdrawal......

I love the holidays and buying gifts for others, but right now, like in years past, I am going through a bit of withdrawal as I've been staying away from my favorite antique shops until I get all my Christmas shopping done...

Seems like it's been forever since I've allowed myself the pleasure of wondering through the antique shops looking for some new pretties to bring home with me. Christmas shopping is almost done though thank goodness, so in a week or two, once the bank account as had a chance to recover a wee bit, I'll be rushing to my favorite shops to see what can be found.

Until then, I'll just sit back, relax and enjoy some of the beautiful treasures I already have.

Hope you are all having a great post Thanksgiving weekend and that you're getting some things checked off your Christmas lists too.

See you soon !!

Your post has discribed exactly whats going on with me too.It's hard not to buy for myself when I know at this time a year some real pretties show up in my special shops.Most of my family just wouldn't get it if I bought these things for them.

Hi Kim,

Yes, I know what you mean about buying pretties for ourselves. Love that little shelf, and my favorite is the pretty can. Your tags are coming along great!

I went to the antique mall the other day for the first time since moving to the farm! It was sooo fun! I only bought 2 ornaments and a vintage kitty card. Is that restraint or what? believe mw, I saw LOTS of things I would have liked to add to the basket! ♥
