Girls Day Out...

Time is ticking before I head back to school (work)
and it was time to go have some fun! 
A friend and I spent yesterday at a couple of 
antique malls, lunch & her home!
My favorite part of the day! 
She has quite the creative flair decorating with 
old, new, antique, flea market, Good Will finds!  
It had my mind spinning with ideas!  

This little gem she bought at the "SToP"! 
It looked so cute in her home among old books 
& many other typewriters that were focal 
pieces in the room! 

This bird cage was another Whistle Stop
purchase! She added a little tag that read
"fly away home". 
How sweet is that? 

This metal piece was bought at The "SToP's" 
Shopkeeper & Friends Antique & Artisan Market.
She lined the top with vintage brass hose nozzles.

  A stack of books as a floating shelf... 
all graduating sizes, coordinating colors, 
and inspirational titles make it the perfect
resting spot for this little bird & nest. 

Old time card racks were filled with notes,
tags & quotes. Such a fun conversation piece
in the entryway!

I have some new inspiration for my new office space
& projects for the "SToP"!
Creative inspiration is all a girl needs! 


  1. Creativity comes from anything and everything. Just open yourself up to it. "We don"t play because we are too old, we are old because we stopped playing." SoMe oF MY BeST adVeNTuReS STaRT iN MY HeaRT aND LaND iN MY HaNDS.

  2. Sounds like a wonderful day! I hope your doing well these hot summer days...and yes. I'd love to get together...any day next week would be fine with me.

    Oh...and I wanted to let you know that I'm having a huge garage sale this Saturday (the 6th) from 8-2...let me know if you'd like to come for a visit ;o)
