A Chee Hoo Kind of Day!

Saturday Tresa and I went to an antique show in Chicago. It was awesome! I didn't realize that they held this once a month during the summer. I will definitely go back next year. I took the train in and we went to breakfast first. It was Tresa's birthday. I am not sure how she keeps getting older and I don't!!

I ended up buying some plates to make some cake stands. Most of what I bought were really little ones that I use for soap dishes, jewelry holders and candy dishes. I got a great deal...partly because the shop owner was Tresa's neighbor!!

Then I also bought two pairs of very old beaded earrings and some vintage buttons. What am I going to do with those you ask?? My daughter-in-law, Bernadette showed me a pin that she bought and the creative wheels started turning. Once the craft shows are done, I'll make some and show them to you. Very, very cute!!!

Make it a wonderful day!!
