Hunting for treasure...

In light of not having inspiration book pages done for today, I thought I'd take you along on a little stroll through an antique shop just outside the twin cities. I had a window of time on this gorgeous, sunny day while the kids were both in school and headed out to Buffalo, Minnesota to the Buffalo Nickel. I was searching for something in particular for my class at Sweetpeas in a couple weeks. I normally don't go to antique shops since I'm such an estate sale fiend and find that the prices can be a bit higher. But I was running out of time before my class. I found what I was looking for, along with tons of fun spring inspiration. I thought you'd enjoy:)

Thanks for sharing your visit! i love looking at the American antique stores, they're so much fresher and brighter than their British counterparts that seem so stuffy!

It saddens me to think what British people throw away which could be passed on to a good home!
