Tuesday's Treasures

Every time I watch the "American Pickers" on the History channel, I get the bug to go junking. These guys, Mike and Frank have the best jobs ever, searching for old junk! They live right in the same area as I do! Last weekend they had a whole weekend dedicated to them in the quaint little town of Le Claire, Iowa. Its a tiny town right on the Mississippi river. They had meet and greet where you could get their autographs. I wanted to go but hubby said it would be crazy with the parking and it was rainy both days anyway.  They are talking about having the event again next year.


 Since it was a rainy day today, I headed to the Goodwill and the Antique Mall. Both places were busy! I picked up these few treasures. I love the old terrarium house. I can't wait to put a little plant in there. Was thinking maybe a little fern would look great.


I have a couple new Americana dress ornies listed in my etsy shop now. It's time to get ready for the 4th of July!!

Great finds, I need to get out and hit the thrifts again.
Those dresses are so fun and I was thinking, fun to use materials to fit the seasons. I need to dig out my old doll clothes book.

I love that little terrarium! My daughters would adore it too! I think a small fern would be perfect, with some moss you found outside.

It's been too long since I've gone antiquing!

Howdy Tammy! My hubby watches those American Pickers and those Pawn Shop guys too. Interesting shows for sure. I sure am lovin' those lil dresses you're makin' now. They could become my expensive habit real fast. We'll see;)
