Fun for under $10

I was restless today, my job search isn't getting anywhere and I just didn't want to work on projects today.  It is chilly here but sunny and the day was calling me to go out.  So I headed towards Biltmore Village area and visited the Thrift shop and an Antique Area with 5 different shops.  I really wasn't buying but did find some great things if I was!!  Maybe later but here are some lovely pictures.

                                                         To me this column and draped fur looked like angel wings
                                                      More beautiful columns these were 180 a piece
                                                  This glorious piece is rare and expensive
                                                         Loved the chair, table and Honey Bee sign
                                                            Elegant bedroom set in creamy white
                                                       Metal Starfish
                                                                Metal piece
                                                               Lovely picture with fur
                                                                I even did try some furs on
                                  Great library drawers, they were deep to hold all our treasures
                                         The outside of the store was cute Nostalique Antiques
                                                        Metal flowers, Daisys my favs
        A sweet princess picture I found at the thrift store for $7, I had to have it, it reminds me of the dreamer in all of us
This pitcher was $1

These curtain holders $1.  In all a fun trip.  Now tomorrow we shall see what trouble I'll be in!  My hubby is off (Thursday, Friday is his weekend) so we may just travel about.
until then Safe Travel, Di
