It is so icy outside and I'm snuggled up here in a warm blanket. I went to my favorite antique shop on Sunday. It is one of those shops that has room upon room as you wind down the corridors, a loft space, and a bargain basement. That basement is my favorite! Everything in the basement was all 75 percent off. I got this beautiful and ornate silver tray for a really great price. The photos make it look small, but it really is nice and big. I love it!
And then I grabbed several little bags of mixed cream and white buttons to fill an apothecary jar I have. I am obsessed with vintage notions and papers! I don't know what's better sifting through them on a antiquing trip or collecting them. :)
I treated myself to some more dreamy cream roses. Having fresh flowers around during these cold winter months definitely is a pick me up. Roses can last for a pretty long time if you change the water everyday and keep cutting down their stems.
Did anyone else watch the season premier of Downton Abbey last night? My husband and I are in love with that show! We have been counting down the days! Sunday nights are Downton nights here at my house. :) Thanks for your visit and have a wonderful fresh new week.
