I have been waiting for 7 months to take my mini-vacation to visit my BF, Michele. Michele lives in beautiful West Virginia where the countryside is just breathtaking. Her back porch view is a beautiful little lake and gorgeous mountains. The birds are eating their breakfast from the birdfeeder that sits just outside the kitchen door. The ducks are swimming in the lake down below and the buds are bursting and the tulips are swaying in the breeze. After a long, long, long cold winter in good ole New England, it was a pleasure to enjoy 80 degree temperatures yesterday as we ran around Martinsburg antiquing.

We came home with bags full of treasures, but realized that we left one big package at one of the shops we visited (OMG!!!) ~ so today we head back to pick up our forgotten package and spend another day looking for treasures.

If you have never been to Michele's website

click on either one of her creations below and enjoy the view.

Well I'm off to do more antiquing. I'll be back next week with a BOATLOAD
of new vintage treasures! Enjoy your weekend everyone.

Don't forget to take a peek in at "Treasured Heirlooms" or
"Elegance and Whimsy" while you are here.
