New Finds Or Impulse Shopping

Good evening sweet friends...
well my prayers came true.
We had a 67 degree day today.
Now if it would only stay.
It was nice driving home along the river 
with the radio turned up and the window rolled down.
Bob and I even grabbed a burger at one of our
favorite places along the lake..
which is not far from our river.
We got there as the sun was going down,
and it was a spectaculat sunset!

Have you ever heard of the old adage ~
putting the cart before the horse?
A few weeks back I spent some money thinking -
actually hoping that we would not owe the tax man this year.
We have to pay Uncle Sam again.

Since I already spent some money ahead of time,
glad I spent the money before knowing..
cause I might not have....
then again sometimes you just cannot pass up things. LOL

Like this stoneware cake crock.

Could you see yourself baking a cake in this beauty!

I also bought this latest wax sealer on the right.
Love the squiggly line in the middle.
Early stoneware is so awesome because the potters
had free rein on creating their designs..
with no two alike.

Then I went shopping back in my own store,
and brought this early apothecary back we were selling.
Apothecarys were used as spice racks, to hold plant extracts
for various home remedies and even used
to hold cocaine and morphine which were
 medicine (drugs) at that time.
 Each little compartment
would hold a different item.
Not sure if I want to leave this in the kitchen 
or put in the bedroom once my son moves out
and put my floss in the cubbies.

Have you ever bought an antique as an impulse buy?
I usually know what I want to purchase when shopping..
but sometimes items just call out to me.

Impulse Buying Blessings To All


  1. Fabulous purchases! I am definitely an impulse buyer! I did quite a bit of it at several antique shows this past weekend. Funny little items that I just couldn't live without ;)
    Blessings, Patti

  2. Oh I'd have bought those as well even if I knew I'd owe the tax man. Cake crock is high on my list but I've never even seen one in all my days of antiquing. And I love the squiggles on the crock as well. Enjoy them!

  3. Morning Janice, how wonderful to enjoy the nice weather!!! Love the cake crock and that Apothacary cabinet, love it!!! Blessings Francine.

  4. I know what you mean about impulse. My house has a lot of those. Only now they have stopped speaking to me, those ungrateful things, all they wanted was to be bought.


Thank you friends for reading my blog! I especially enjoy reading your comments.
