Shabby, Chippy Treasures


I love to browse through old book shops. The ones filled
with well loved copies of out of print books and
favorite classics.




I love to go to consignment shops, thrift shops and
estate sales. I'm always on the hunt for some
special little treasure.

Or ...



The sale table at one of my favorite shops.
Because ...
You never know what wonderful treasure you may find!

I am joining ~
and

Bentley ~ You Wow me every day of the week!!

Love,
Susan and Bentley

  5. Give me the old and the worn out any day. It usually has so much more character. And it's even better when you can give it new life by painting it or something.
    Have a great day.
