Sunday afternoon I decided to go to one of the antique malls. I went to the one closest to my home called the Colorado Antique Gallery. It felt good to get out of the house for awhile. For the past month I have been spending my Sundays working on the bathroom so now that it is almost done I thought I would treat myself. I found a few goodies that I couldn't resist taking home.
There are a few of booths that I always enjoy looking at every time I go there. Some of my pictures didn't turn out to well since I was using my phone. This booth is all decked out for Halloween. It gave me some great ideas.
Here are the items that I bought.
I love the colors in the blankets. I probably won't use them this year for my Fall decorating but they will be used next year along with the hat.
I love plaid and these will be used on my front porch for Christmas. I saw some wool blankets that will work nicely there too. The will get them the next time I go.
I spotted this basket within the first couple of booths that I looked at. I was drawn to it immediately. It looked very familiar. That is because I have one just like it but it is smaller. The one I have has been in my family as long as I can remember. When I moved out of my parents house my mother let me have it.
As you can see mine is just a little bit shorter. My mother used it for rags and I so do I. It fits nicely in the closet in my laundry room. The new one will work nicely for blankets. You never know what you will find at antique stores.
