A Quick Trip To An Antique Shop

It is BEAUTIFUL here today! 69 degrees and sunny! We are in for a cool down so we need to enjoy this weather while it lasts! Fingers crossed that the weather man is wrong. But I think this is too good to last.

I dropped our son off at Preschool and made a quick trip to an antique shop. Tried to stop at a couple other shops but they were closed…boo hoo! But I did find a few things that I am very happy with!

I have been addicted to little butter crocks lately. I love the look and the size of them and they come in so many different finishes and colors. And the best part…they are economical, the two I got today were $4.00 and $4.50. Can’t beat it!

But my favorite find was this butter press! I have ALWAYS wanted one but the ones I have found are just too expensive. I found one today for $24.00! Yippee! That is a price I will pay!



It is a pineapple and I LOVE it!

I couldn’t be more happy! I finally have a butter press. I don’t know if it will be the start of a collection because I think it could be a very expensive collectible. I am fine with this one for now…but I will still be on the lookout for more!

I am going to get out into this beautiful weather. Take a walk or take the kids to the park or both. Have a wonderful day everyone!

Until next time, take care.
