Antique and Boutique finds with the Kipster
We had such fun yesterday. We explored all the antique shops on the main streets here in Tarpon Springs, had a great lunch that E fixed and then moved on to Dunedin where I had made a few fun finds a couple of weekends ago with my pal, DeeDee from St. Louis.
Kip and I found one store where we could pick through stacks and mounds of vintage costume jewelry for a quarter each and we each just had to have one of the darling silver filigree purse necklaces (a way bit over a quarter but well worth it)that actually open.
I had been wanting a vintage glass bottle to try out a technique I read about in Somerset Life but want to add my own twist...and voila! There it is.
And if you would like to know what I am going to do that that lovely tile upon which all the goodies are resting...well, watch this spot!
Off to Sarasota with the Kipster in a bit...waiting on her dog sitter. We'll meet up with G-a, our beloved Barb, and our new friend, Sonia plus all the wonderful other Hilltop Memories gals.
