GREAT FINDS IN RALEIGH AND SHOUT OUTS!

This past weekend Mr.OTM and I had a great opportunity to head on up to Raleigh NC!
The reason for the trip was a surprise birthday party for JJ ( Russ's niece)~ and we got her good too! She was completely surprised .We always have so much fun when we all get together! And the FOOD~ Boy do we have the food!! Okay...(get ready Marcia & Jan here comes your Shout outs) MARCIA (Russ's SIL's sister) made THE BEST Ramen Noodle Salad and French toast(sort off) and JAN ( Russ's SIL) made this KILLER Mac and Cheese and most of the French toast! LOL! I will do a recipe post in the future cuz you are gonna want to try these! Oh and one of the best parts was I received and handmade afgan Jan made me that I LOVE!
AND....I also got to go junkin!! YIPPEE! TAKE A PEEK !
I was in CHIPPY GLORY!!

This is the first old dolly that I ever bought and she is fantastic and in great shape with a wonderful face. Most of the stuff came from the flea market at the fairgrounds. I have wanted to go there for awhile and finally made it. Had a blast!
Not sure what the architectural piece is from. Any ideas? It had the perfect chippiness! LOVe it!



This little old doll quilt was a whopping 5 bucks and one of my fav finds! BUT~ One of THE BEST FINDS WAS THIS..............



SuzAnna's Antiques!! Holy ta moly you gotta go! I got to meet Jenny and what a super sweet gal! I was freakin out (in a good way) as soon as I rolled into the parking lot! There is JUNK EVERWHERE (again...in a good way) and I think I sprained my eyeballs from lookin around so fast. I couldn't decide which way to turn! The displays are great and you gotta love a place the uses the words "peely paint" on there business cards! I will be back~this time with the truck!
So that's it for now~ I have a few surprises coming up this week so stay tuned!
Have a great day!

You did great on all your cool finds. I am hitting a few places today myself and can't wait. I understand the heart racing, pulse pounding, stomach aching feeling even as I'm getting dressed to go. And, I get a day to myself today minus my three precious children. Have a great one. I hope to.

I keep hearing about Suzanna's. I'm guessing a roadtrip to Raleigh might be in my future. What's 6 hours?

Hi Beth ~ I thought I'd pop over for a visit. It's almost time to get our swaps in the mail....I need to get busy and finish your trasjy goodies.
I love all these great finds. That architectural piece looks similar to the harp leg on a table I saw at an antique mall recently. It looks like it migh have been cut from the middle of it.
