Retail Therapy

Good morning yesterday I stated that I was heading out to go shopping so I had to share some pictures of my goodies. Now I know you're probably scratching your head. What is this woman doing she's getting ready to move why is she buying more stuff to move?? Well, I don't really have an answer for you except that this is my outlet. I love to shop. I like to shop for my home the most. Having a warm and inviting home has always been important to me. I like to shop for candles, kitchen goods, clothes, jewelry, shoes. You name it I've always been a shopper. I like to get a good deal too. I don't go all that often anymore so I really don't feel that guilty when I do shop.

I regret not taking my camera because it was such a pretty day. I went to one of my favorite primitive stores again Homestead Primitives which you may remember from a previous post. It was already decked out for Fall and it was hard to resist all the goodies. I also checked out a little store on a farm with the sweetest couple I've met. It was so cute ladies. They have a pumpkin patch in the Fall and it's called Pumpkin Blossom Hill. She had her own workshop attached where she could paint and make her goodies. This is where I found the red/white bucket and baking soda tins. Then I headed off to Red Bud, IL such a neat little town to Wickes N Country. It's a very nice place too. I picked up the little bowl 4 and 20 blackbirds baked in a pie. It fits in with my pie theme so well.

I got the 3 little crows and pumpkin from Homestead Primitives and the Hillbilly Homebrew candle too. The smell is spicy mulled cider and it's wonderful, I got a tart first to try and had to have a jar of it. The company is the Black Crow candle company. They should start paying me to advertise for them. LOL! The little cherry pie in front is for my vintage toy stove.

Then the cottage cocoa tin, fall signs,clabber girl tin and enamel ware is from D & D country. store. The bowl is from Wicks N' Country.

Enjoy your weekend, it's supposed to be really cool here.
