So much junk, so little time!

Yesterday, I ventured to Brimfield with these sweet ladies. A lovely group of Heidi's friends joined us as well. I seriously could not ask for a better day ~ perfect weather, wonderful company, and TONS of junk!!! The Brimfield Antique Market is an absolute treasure trove. You can find literally anything that your heart desires. There is just SO much stuff, that it is almost overwhelming. Here are some photos...

Chippiness galore. I'll take one of each, please!

This whole booth was pink stuff! Including the creepy pink dolls!!!

This tent was AMAZING. All imported European furniture. I wanted everything.... sigh....

Thank you girls for a wonderful day ~ can't wait until next time!!!

May Day & A Giveaway!

I was so happy to participate in Jenny's wonderful May Basket Swap. And even happier when I learned that Jessica was assigned to be my partner!!!

This is the GORGEOUS basket that she made for me!!!

It pained me to take it apart, but I just had to show you all of the treasures that she sent me!!! Jessica has a wonderful sense of style and color. She always makes the most amazing things.

Here is the basket that I mailed her, very similar to the ones that I made last month. I was on a roll.. heehee.

And the goodies inside.

Last year I told you about the sweet May Baskets that the local senior center makes each year. This year I picked up an extra one for a giveaway! I filled it with all kinds of artsy treats from my shop. My plan was to post this on May Day, but it just didn't happen. So I guess this could really be considered a Mother's Day giveaway instead!

Here's a peek of the goodies inside. Velvet leaves, forget me nots, a lace blossom, glitter, tinsel, ribbons, vintage charms and bits, spun cotton mushrooms ~ all in shades of pink, cream, and gold.

If you would like to be entered, just leave a comment on this post. (Be sure to include your email address if you don't have a blog, so I can contact you if you win.) I'll randomly draw a winner on Sunday evening.

Edit: The winner of the May Day Giveaway is
#43 Kris Pare
I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day!!!!
