More Fabulous Finds....

I had the pleasure of spending yesterday with one of my cousins browsing the antique malls in Stillwater, Minnesota and we both scored some great finds.

These are the lovely spring like items I was lucky enough to find.

A beautiful china lady figurine in the prettiest shade of pale minty green..

As you can in this close up shot, she's far from being perfect as it appears she must have had a tragic accident at one point in time and sadly lost part of her arm which was then glued back on, however, that didn't deter me at all from purchasing her at the bargain price I did. Even with her reattached arm, she's still just as lovely and will make a wonderful addition to my collection of lady figurines.

And of course, a few roses on her dress adds even more charm to her ...

In addition to the lovely lady figurine, I also found another pretty planter to add to my collection along with a crocheted potholder in my favorite colors.

I always find it to be quite interesting how my finds all seem to have a similar theme in colors ..

But then again, my eyes always seem to be drawn towards the pale pastel colors no matter what so maybe it's not so surprising after all that all of my finds yesterday were those in my favorite color palate.

Having the day off from work, spending time with my cousin and finding my new treasures sure made for a perfect day in my opinion. So much more fun that working don't you think ??
