~~~ lookie, i've got junk in my trunk ~~~

wanna take a peek into my trunk?

i love those pumpkins - creamy white and a grayish shade of black - perfect.

i spent some happy money today. at my favorite store. The Lamb's Tail. it is the most adorable antique shop. the shop is located inside of an historic rustic barn, complete with real goats and lamb's.

to me, it is heaven - i get lost inside this place. the word charming, isn't even sufficient enough to describe this shopping paradise.

Let's take a closer look at my new treasures.....

love this cake plate and dome - $10 ~ not too bad!
i am looking for just the right location in my house for it.

my sole intention for this trip was to find a fisherman's basket to hang on my front door - and yes, I sure did find one! now i have to figure out how to hang it.

i have this weird thing for wood boxes (however, i never want to be in a coffin - creeeepy)!
when i saw this box, it practically begged me to bring it home - how could i possibly decline?

this rickity tin basket now is home to many white tapers.

as i was putting away my new possesions - i realized that i have consumed quite a bit of merchandise from the lamb's tail..........for instance.


and this

oh, and this

table ~ i think i paid $20 for it, in the clearance room!

(my puppy also loved this table so much she tried to eat, see bottom left leg)

and last but certainly not least....

my very first purchase and my very favorite piece.

the lamb's tail is located in the cute little town of armada, michigan - if you are in the area, i would highly recommend a detour!

Hi Donna, I'm stopping over from your friend Melanie's. Congrats on your winning the giveaway. Now to say your blog is beautiful. The vintage finds are incredible, I love the little tin which holds the candles. As well as the pretty hutch. My coffee table is similar to yours. Also just to say your blog title is very nice, and you've done a great job here. I'm your newest follower, tami from the high street cottage

Looks like a great haul from your favorite shop. My husband is from Michigan ( traverse City area) I think our next visit may in deed take a detour to your favorite shop. Wishing you a day filled with Happy!
