Today was the perfect Fall day!! The weather was crisp and cool..the sun was shining bright. The perfect XCountry weather! Sadly, when we arrived at the school, we were told that it was canceled, due to a HUGE race going on in town. The bus could not get there to take the team to the meet. As much as we would have loved to go.....we quickly thought up a new plan for the day!
Aaron and I headed down to Pt.Pleasant to the Antique emporium. We were on a hunt for some vintage photos for our new altered photo collection. We were lucky enough to come across a few that will be perfect!! Mostly late 30s, early 40s. We hadn't been down there since the summer. Not much changes in those antique booths sadly. I swear that some of the framed artwork and prints have been hanging in a few of those booths for over 8 years!! Really!!
I was hoping for some Holiday/Christmas stuff. Nothing that had me drooling. It may be a bit early still. We saw a few things we may go back for in some of the gift/decor shops in town. I am a sucker for Aunt Sadie's candles!! I cannot get enough of "beach in a can"!!! I adore that smell!! That candle was one of my inspirations for our vintage boardwalk/beach bathroom! My current fav is the fresh apple!! To die for!! Maybe I will go back next week!!
We stopped for pizza and cannolis....the pizza wasn't too good..(we are pizza aficionados!! trust me)...but the cannoli's were fab!!
We listed a few Holiday/Christmas pieces on eBay. Including our Vintage house ornaments, Everyday cake ornaments, Holiday cupcakes, Vintage putz house cake, and large snowman and bunny cake!!.
Thank you so so much to all you fabulous lightening bolts who have already started shopping!! WOW! You gals are FAST!! (they were up for less than 20 mins!!)
I decided to go with Lambertville/New Hope for tomorrow's birthday day trip!! So much to do and see..and it is just so amazing this time of year!! I can't wait!! I will be sure to take pics!
Above are photos of our dining area (by candlelight)....yep..the same area I showed you all last month....here it is in the mocha/tan. Big change huh? No more pink!! ...well no more pink walls....but of course we still have lots of pink sweets...and bits everywhere! It is toned down for Halloween right now...speaking of...my super duper talented and sweet friend Laurie Duncan..of Happy as a Lark designs made all of the incredible ornaments on my tree....as well as the fabulous Halloween pixie box!! She is amazing!! She sent me the coolest handmade altered collage ornament that she created especially for my birthday!! A fortune teller!! with my date of birth! I love it!! you must keep tabs on her eBay auctions!! You will love her stuff!! Her Christmas pixies are sure to knock socks off!!
Well, that's about it! We have a few things to do tonight...but we plan on relaxing and watching some tv. Thank you so much for all of the birthday wishes!! I cannot tell you how much it means to me!! So fun!!! hope you all have a great Sunday!!
