I keep reading about wonderful shopping trips on other blogs and thought, I want to go shopping, too! So I did.
Flower Frog Quest
My first stop was my favorite antique shop to find a flower frog. Lori introduced me to these cool things and now I have my very own. I was so excited to find one. I love its worn, green look. It's currently holding one of the tags I bought from Maryjane's Etsy shop.
Next door to the antiques shop is a wonderful country store. I bought this set of 3 frames and an S hook to hold them. The distressed frames hang by a lovely sage ribbon.
I am thinking of filling the frames with either sepia-toned photos, fabric or wallpaper.
The Good HomeGoods
A few days later I made a trip to "the good HomeGoods"–the one that always has great plates and everything else.
I really like how the roses on these delicate teacups and saucers have a modern twist. There were only 2 sets available. They are so pretty that I think I will probably hang the plates and use the teacups for something like displaying small collections. Too cute to conceal.
Being a fan of good packaging and things that sparkle, I couldn't resist buying some pure silver from The Little Pink Studio.

I love children's book illustrations (as you may have guessed) and so I especially like Cerri's cute logo. This pure silver will be pure fun to use and the bottle will look very cute on a shelf in the Girly Office.
I hope I stimulated the economy in a small way. I know I gave myself a little boost!
