Shopping with friends.

Remember last week when 
Marty and CeeKay were here 
and I took them SHOPPING?
Look at all the yumminess I found
at one little antique store in 
San Juan Capistrano!

Yep! Yummy!

You have some pretty treasures there, Karen. I love shopping when I don't have anything particular in mind. Now I have to jump back and read about your time with Marty and Ceekay. I love those ladies!

Ooooh! Yummy stuff, indeed, Karen! I LOVE San Juan Capistrano! My sister-in-law & her family live there--such a fun place to visit!

Hope you're having a beautiful day!

I get so envious when I see what all my blogging buddies find! In our area there are slim pickings!!! Can't wait to see what projects you come up with.

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Oh I missed some of your goodies. You really did find a ton. Are you playing with anything yet? I have been playing with all of mine. Great fun, and I had such a good time with you. Love you. Hugs, Marty

mya said...

What interesting finds. Do you already know how you will use some of these items? Keep us posted.

Karen I was over at Ceekay's place awhile ago looking at the stuff she brought home and have decided that you guys must have had the best time together. What a wonderful thing it was for you gals to spend this time enjoying all the great things together. Yep, I love your treasures too.
thank you so much for the message about the garden. I haven't ever seen a snake in this garden, but just because we are talking about it, I will now.hehe
I hate snakes too. Did you know that I stepped on a rattlesnake while hiking my daily route about six years ago. Needless to say, it is no longer my daily route. I luckily had stepped on it about six inches down from the head, so it was not able to turn and bite me, and I can't believe that I had the presence of mind to not take my foot off. I just used my other foot to pulverize it's head to bits and bits and bits. I was so scared and I have never been back there on foot. I will ride there on horseback, but never walk it again. NEVER!
hugs to you form here

Karen, I'm very new to the world of blogging. I am just setting up my own for the first time. I found Some Days Are Diamonds, and fell in love. I love to craft, live in the country, and am lonely for sisters who craft too. I would love to get involved. I don't know how to grab a button, but would like to...can someone help me? My email is Thanks.

Hi Karen,
I've been reading through your blog and enjoying my visit! LOVE your little doggies...they don't look spoiled at all..LOL! You left such a nice comment on mine and I'm doing some catch up on blogging this evening. You lucky gal you living by the ocean! Loved your creation you are working on with the beautiful print and seashells. And great finds on your shopping trip too...these are all right up my alley. I'll be back to snoop some more! Xo, Sue
