Happy Saturday my friends! We should change the name to "Treasure Hunting Day". My friend and I were off early this morning for breakfast and hunting. Don't you just love the thrill of the hunt? Because we giggled over our breakfast for too long, we only managed 3 really good sales.

My first treasure was this old Art Deco chalk lady. Isn't she cool? I am not sure where I am going to put her. Should she live inside or outside? What do you think? I was taking my pictures outside so that's where she is staying for now. She is very stunning so she might just come inside.

At another Estate I picked up the Limoges tea cup (I really needed it!). You never know when a group of 100 ladies may stop by for tea and I want to be prepared. The plate is also Limoges and is hand painted. What can I say? I am a sucker for Limoges! Did I ever tell you I collect old books? I got a couple of new ones. Don't you just love the covers?

I also, picked up a few aprons at the last Estate Sale I was at. They will make a sweet addition to my collection. Some times I think, well I just might sell my aprons, some people collect aprons. I don't know, these are so cute! Check my Etsy or Ebay, in case I change my mind. The weather in Los Angeles today is perfect! Hope you are having a great day!

Martha...Just another quick note to let you know I'm lifting you up to the MOST HIGH this very moment. Whatever it is you are experiencing God already knows. It may be big for you but it isn't for Him.

Love to you...and blessings...
