White Wednesday and A Road Trip

Welcome to White Wednesday

Hosted by Kathleen at Faded Charm... Love White go to Faded Charm and visit all the blogs featuring wonderful whites...

This Wednesday I am stuck on mop buttons and lace. My daughter Jody took these pictures of buttons and lace we feature in the shop. She is a better photographer then I am, so I hope you enjoy these offerings of white today.

The last few days I have been in Minnesota enjoying my family but I did manage to stop at a few places on my road trip from Chicago to Minneapolis.
On my way back home I stopped at about 6 antique stores and found some goodies, so I thought I would share them with you.
The day was absolutely beautiful so I opened up the sunroof - turned up the radio and stopped at anything that looked interesting and had an antique sign.

One of the antique shops in WI

Here are some of the goodies I found inside, and now they are in my shop!

Pictures and frames and a bridal headpiece

This box is also full of old sheetmusic

I found lots of old papers

And a box full of old ledgers

Nice old mirrors

A pretty yardlong (some damage)

That's it for this Wednesday... I hope you enjoy this day that the Lord has given us. And thank you Kathleen for another wonderful white Wednesday!




  1. Beautimous stuff y'all have in your shop, wow! And you're right, your daughter is a fantastic photog.

    Your whites are beautiful....all that lace & buttons. *sigh*

  7. Great finds on your road trip, Rebecca. Your shop is full of beautiful laces and buttons. My favorite kinds of treasures. I can't seem to get enough.

  8. Wow where do I start??? The pics your daughter took are fabulous and the second one with the whitewashed look is my favorite and I may try that effect sometime if you don't mind.
    Your treasures all in a group look much like the things I bought from Brimfield and still have on the floor in the breakfast room waiting to be photographed. Yicks!!! can't believe I admitted that!
    I'm drooling over your bridal headpiece. I looked for some but found not a one! I guess I'll have to be happy looking at yours!!!lol

  9. It is all so wonderful...I adore it all. I feel certain we were separated at birth as we seem to love all the same things.....gorgeous...xojana

  10. Rebecca, I love coming to your blog, I save it for the moments that I can just sit uninterrupted and just look at all the beauty that you show, I clik on the pictures and enlarge them over and over and each time I seem to find new gorgeous details :)Now for all your treasures that you found..they are in my daughters words "simply Faboosh!!! I am in So Cal and I have yet to find things like that, I can't even find pretty vintage ledger papers w/pretty writing, heck I can't even find pretty blank ones :)I actually came on here to let you know that I received my package!! I was so excited...You were overly generous though Rebecca, I loved my tag...trying to decide what side to display and the best part is that 1 of the keys worked!!! My Mr wonderful took apart the lock & played with it till it worked! I am soo happy. Thank you Rebecca you are truly a heart! Rose
