A little Antiquing and the Flu

Well it's been a rainy, cold week here and to top that off I've had some sort of a flu bug. I managed to make it to work everyday, get home and take care of the brats and then to bed. I really have only a thousand things that I need and want to do but this is a tough bug. However, I managed to get up early yesterday and hit some yard sales and boy was it worth the cold and damp. I'm posting just a few of my finds and hopefully as the week passes I can get caught up and post some more pictures. Below in the back corner is a wonderful old primitive berry picking, carrying tray. I just fell in love with it.
You can see it a little better here and in front is an antique basket that I found, the flash takes away from the really warm primitive patina of the basket.
I also picked up this little tea pot. It will be a favorite for a long time.

Then I found this smaller basket. Just a few weeks ago I was complaining that I never find the great old baskets that I used too; well it looks like I was wrong and for once I am sooo glad I was wrong.

I couldn't pass up this little dolly, she's a topsey-turvey.

And this little girl just tucked right into the side of the old shelf.

The brats also got a new toy. It's called a nap & play and so far they have played, jumped, pounced, flipped and about everything except napped in it. When is nap time? I could use one. Have a great week and please stay away from the flu. I hope to post more of my weekend treasures soon.
Bright blessings.
