I Met Another Blogging Friend!

Last week Retha posted some things she was selling. I bought some rose hips and stencils from her. She lives a little over an hour from me and she asked if I wanted her to meet me half way to save on the postage. I told her that I had been wanting to go to an antique mall in Asheboro. We met there this morning and spent a few hours together looking around in two different shops. I did find a few things: another bread box, a spice rack, and an enamel pan. The bread box and spice rack will get makeovers and will probably end up in our booth.

I didn't get to stay as long as I wanted to because Jimmy had to get back home to go to work. We had a nice time and I enjoyed getting to know Retha. We plan on meeting again to shop sometime soon.

In my last post about our move to the Curious Cat I
didn't show what we bought while we were there. We got these red canisters

Here they are in their new home

and this soon to be candle box

They were all in Janna's $2.00 box. I just love looking through her box! We also got this magazine rack

from another booth that belongs to Rachel. She doesn't have a blog yet but she told me she read mine and I told her if she starts her own I will be a follower.

My biggest problem of having a booth at the Curious Cat is that I'm gonna want to buy something everytime we go.

Well, I've got to go see what I can start working on next. I hope you have a great evening!

How nice to meet a fellow blogger AND shop too. I would be the same as you - I'd want to buy something every time if I had a booth. You found some nice things. I like the red canisters. Red is one of my favorite colors.

How nice to meet a fellow blogger! And you got some great finds!
Ma Mama had two cabinets exacly like your's! My two older sisters will inherit them when my Dad passes away. They are really nice pieces. I will get some other things that are just as nice. Didn't want you to think I was being left out! :D
Have a great week!
