Hi everyone!...I hope you had a good Monday!!...I love Mondays!!..It's the start of a new week!!...Leaving off on my last post~Last Monday was filled with some outlet mall shopping...No big purchases were made for me...I just got me 5 new shirts....We were on our way to Cartersville, Ga {above Atlanta} from Chattanooga...My parents and siblings all live there...We had a good time and it was good to see everyone!!!

The next day {Tuesday} before we left to come home my sister, Heather, and I went to the antique store we always go to...It's not very big, but I always find a treasure to bring home....There was no room in the car with Luke's stroller and all our luggage, so I knew I had to keep my purchases small...One of the booths that is one of our favorites wasn't there anymore..UGH!! But the other one was having a 40% off sale as she usually does right before Christmas when I'm visiting....
The first items I picked out were some reproduction pantry jars...Priced at $15, $12, and $9...before 40% taken off...










I'm always drawn to sconces...She only had one of these at $8 before 40% was taken off!!!










And this crock for $12.00 before the 40% was taken off also.....









Then I passed a crate in another booth for $7...She apologized that it wasn't on sale also, but at $7 I didn't care...It held all my goodies perfectly with some little silicone bulbs thrown in...
And some how I didn't get a picture of my little red punch tin lantern taken that i got also...I will have to show you next time...It is so cute!!...
So at about 2:30 we headed home...Traffic was really bad and we didn't get home til 6:00...The funny thng was that as we got home it got warmer and warmer....While we had been on our trip the temps were extremely cold and the wind was strong...When we left on Sunday morning{to begin our trip} at 6:30 am it was already 65 degrees at home...Amazing that only a few hours away that there can be such a change in temps...And it was good to get back home...Nothing better than sleeping in your own bed!!!...
Next time I will show you my goodies that were waiting for me when the mail was delivered on Christmas Eve!!...So until then....hugs,Jen
