Vintage Treasures

I can’t seem to go anywhere that I don’t make a pit-stop at an antique mall or a thrift shop and the last couple of weeks were no different.  I found some adorable things in local shops.
I did a lot of shopping online too - Etsy, E-bay, and Totsy. Packages are showing up at the door and making it feel like Christmas is on it’s way!

  1. Rhonda, fun finds indeed. Those little Toby mugs are delightful. ;-)

  2. Hello Rhonda,
    Oh buying for yourself is GREAT:) Love those darling little chalk ware sweet! I got a few goodies at Harvest on Friday...what a huge store. Have y'all read Gene's book "All In"? If not, it's a wonderful matter which school you support. Very happy that we have this kind of man as our head coach. Thanks so much for coming to my party.


  3. What fun finds, Ronda! The little mugs are precious!

  4. Lovely, Rhonda! I recognize the second one ~ St. Theresa of Lisiuex. I went to Catholic school for 8 years growing up in Brooklyn and it was St. Theresa of Lisiuex parish {probably spelling wrong} but we all referred to it as Little Flower.

  5. Great finds, Rhonda! I especially love the two plaques and the cute little sheep.

  6. Oh wow, those are gorgeous. they look like retablos..which we have one very large one, and we treasure it. We always wind up at antique malls and thrift stores boys hate life on those days LOL

  7. Stopping back by to say thank you for linking this wonderful post to Potpourri Friday!

  8. Hi Rhonda!
    Those are some great finds. You know how I love cherubs, so that cute little pair made my heart flutter.
    Thanks so much for linking up to "What's It Wednesday". Hope that you can join us next we as well. It's not a party without you!

  9. I have been buying stuff for myself too! Oops! Love your stuff....those cherubs and the sheep! LOVE!!!
