Coming out of hibernation

I'm sure I'm not alone in being SO excited that it's finally spring! This not only means warmer weather and flowers and no more coats ... but also garage sales and flea markets and fun outings to my favorite rummage-y places.

About a week ago, I went out to an antique mall right near my house. It's literally about 1/4 mile from my house, and I went once years ago ... and then completely forgot it was there! Yeah, I'm still not sure how that happened.

Anyway, here's what I got: an adorable little pitcher with pansies painted on it--I'm keeping that for myself. The sweet blue pitcher with roses on it is for a swap I'm in. The plate might also go to another swap partner. The clothespins b/c I have somehow started collecting them for crafts & stuff. I also got a bag of vintage buckles, clear glass buttons, all of those blue buttons!, and a small bag of vintage keys (for another swap later next month).

Can I just say YAY Spring! :)

Cool finds -- and how jealous am I that you have that mall right down the street? I *will* be arriving on your doorstep anyday now LOL
