Antiquing in the Mother Lode!

Yes, I'm back and it has been a while if I do say so myself! Things have been a bit busy here, as life tends to be at times. However, I must say that I have missed everyone and look forward to catching up with many of you!

This past weekend, we went to the lovely little town of Sonora, Ca. I absolutely adore this town. It's in the sierra foothills, not too far from Yosemite National Park. We actually went to say our goodbye's to some friends that are moving back east. Now of course since we were already there, I had to stop in and take a peek at some of my favorite little shops. I ended up finding a few things at one of the antique shops in Jamestown later that day.

I absolutely fell in love with these two flower girls, that I couldn't pass them up! I can already see them at one of our spring tea parties. They appear to be airbrushed onto flour sack towels. I think they're adorable.

I also found the cutest little cornucopia to add to our nature shelf.

Since our nature table needs to be fixed, I am temporarily using a shelf for the time being. So far, so good! I was thinking of needlefelting some tiny pumpkins and gourds, but I think I'll wait a few years after they get past the stage of trying to eat everything tiny!

So with that, I just want to say it's good to be back!! Happy Autumn!!!


  1. I love your felted acorns.
