Aidan and I tend to have better weekends if we don’t spend them stuck in the house so I decided we’d go over to Opelika to my favorite antique shop/flea market, Angel’s Antiques.  I tend to have really good luck finding fun little treasures there.  It’s near some family of Ryan’s so I bribed Aidan by telling her if she sat in the cart like a big girl, I’d take her to go see “Abo & Deet”, her aunt & uncle in Opelika.  It totally worked so Mommy got to do a little shopping!

Another vintage apron…can you tell I was feelin’ folky?  I didn’t notice how much folkart type items I got until I started this post.

I’m a Texas girl, what can I say?  I like stars?  This one will go in our room as the blue (yes it’s blue, not green) matches well.

I bought this mostly to see how it’s made…isn’t it a cute little Valentine ornament?

I’m pretty proud of my haul!  Now to put it all away!
