What we saw in Geronimo...

were so many lovely, shabby, wonderful things.
Something for everybody. Terry admired
the bold red cream & sugar set.

And pinks. Who doesn't go for pink?

Ms Dixie found herself a new Sunday go-to-meetin' hat!
I think it went nicely with the weddin' dress she found.
Check her blog to see things from her perspective.
Don't worry Ricky, she thinks you're the cat's pajamas.

Now to a few things that I just couldn't leave behind.
Looks like a good start to a new collection.

And this blue candy dish...what?
It had my name on it. I had to get it.

Books, a few new ones for my collection.

I'm a bona fide magazine feen! So when I uncovered
a stack of vintage Victoria $1 each...from 1990-1998,
I finally had to tell myself to stop. I did leave some,
but now trying to keep myself from going back
and getting 'em.

This little town of Geronimo has been there all
these years. Practically right under my nose and
I never knew it. But just know I am going to
make up for lost time.

Now I'm off to the deck with a cup of tea and a magazine...
sure wish you were here to share with me.
But do go by Kelli's to see more SHOW & TELL

I read Dixie's post too. Interesting to see your shopping experience from two different sets of eyes. You girls would be so much fun to shop with. I'm going to tell my sister-in-law about Geronimo. Is it anywhere close to Austin? She and a group of friends are going to Austin in October.


I'm with Terry -- that red sugar and creamer is to DIE FOR! Love, love, love it!

Hooray! Those bird cages are fabulous! I'm coveting them in a major way!

Oh I can definitely relate to the two bird cages...and a 'new thing to collect'. I've been looking for one of these, I'll find one someday and of course it'll come home with me.

Candy, you'd have had to leave me ... I'd still be in the shop shopping ... how ever could one just pick 'an item' ... they are wonderful. Glad you had a lovely time. TTFN ~ Marydon

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Oh My Gosh! I agree, that red sugar and creamer would have been in my hands. I could not have left it. It is so beautiful. It would have been a splurge. I love the magazines also, I am afraid like you I would be going back to get the others. Have you already? Glad you gals had a wonderful time. Thanks for sharing. You got some beautiful buys, can't wait to see what you do with the bird houses. Country Hugs, Sherry

I love the little red teapot and creamer. I love the candy dish too. There wasn't anything that I didn't love.

I love your music. I really enjoyed my visit here.
