Hello my friends, Just heading out to explore beautiful Napa Valley.
Wanted to hop in and share the treasures that I picked up along the way.
Whenever we go on a road trip hubby is so sweet to humor me. He’s willing to get off of the freeway, travel roads less traveled, and stop at shops and scenic places. Saturday morning we headed out and drove as far as Reno, NV.
While driving from Reno to Napa yesterday I found some fun finds!
Driving through one town we saw an ‘estate sale’ sign. Scored two sweet little hurricane lamps.
And a few old books. Love the patina on that first one!
This book shows you how to make flowers out of crepe paper. I thought it might be fun to try making a few.
At a thrift shop I found an old Pioneer cook book, some utensils that look like they came across the plains. lol!, and two mustard colored handmade doilies.
At another thrift I scored some old Monopoly pieces in a small box. No game board, but I loved that the houses were wooden. I wonder if the board came in a separate box?
As we were driving along we saw a sign that said, ‘Barn Sale’. I was so excited and could hardly wait! It brought back memories of a barn sale that my girlfriends and I found while driving down the freeway in OR a couple years ago. That one was fabulous! This one, not so much. I walked away empty handed.
But a stop into a consignment shop was well worth it. I picked up a bundle of crochet hot pads and doilies, a cute cherry butter dish (that just happens to match a few other cherry pieces I own), and. . .
a green cheese shaker. Not vintage, but still that wonderful ‘vintage green’ color that I love!
Hope you have a great week and find a few treasures of your own!
