We had such an amazing time in McKinney last week that it's taken me 2 posts to show it all to you!
Reading your comments from the first post reminded me how lucky I am to live in Texas. We have so many wonderful places to shop. Besides McKinney, some of my fave towns for junking are Waco, Austin, Burleson, Benbrook, Fort Worth, Grapevine, Canton, Waxahachi, Round Top, San Antonio, the entire Hill Country Area!
That's if I go out of town!
Right around the corner I'm blessed with Lonestar Antique Mall,
(Yes overseas friends, we have huge malls filled with nothing but old stuff!!)
& so many more I'm either forgetting or haven't experienced yet.
For months I've been obsessed with Prims, one of Stampingtons new publications.
I even bought some paper clay to make doll heads. Well when I spotted this darling shop called
Plum Creek Primitives I had to check it out.
The owner Bonnie has the place decked out for fall.
She has an awesome selection of dolls, furniture & accessories, but the cutest thing in her store by far was......
her greeter, Maggie!
So after picking up a couple of gifts for my Sister, I headed over to Smitten.
This shop really takes your breath away!
Karen has filled her store with a perfect combination of luxurious linens,
and beautiful handmade treasures!
(shopping makes me think clearer)
We were on a very tight time schedule. There were so many other shops I wanted to visit, maybe next time.
So I showed you the where & the who,
do you wanna see the what????
You know me, I can't just window shop....
I was in a junk induced frenzy so I have no recollection which store I purchased each item from.
I do know that all 4 stores got a bit of my mad money!
I cannot pass up a great old box, drawer,
This one is tiny, a child's travel case.
It's now holds my collection of child themed cabinet cards.
That I had to bring home.
I had to, they were
ridiculously cheap priced really well!
A glass negative to add to my collection.
Beautiful vintage grosgrain & velvet ribbons.
In my favorite non-colors!
This was my find of the day!
Look at this book, someone loved it so hard they stitched up the cover when it was torn!
Now that's altered art.
Okay, maybe these were my favorite purchase.
Just so many cool things calling my name.
'Lisa, take us home'...
Speaking of my obsession with 'Prims'......
one of my favorite artists featured from the magazine is Susan Pilotto of Mouse Droppings.
Did you know she is hosting her 1st ever give-away?
Check it out!
