I Stayed In Monroe to Rest from the Road

First I went to the LQS. I saw 3 of the ladies from guild that I met last month. The next meeting is coming up this week and I can't wait. It is fun to get together with ladies with common interests.

I was waiting for a friend to call me to go to Antique Alley so decided to take a little detour. Have you been watching Judy pine for chickens? Well I have been pining for a rooster. Pining for a looooong time! Look what I found!!

I had wanted a ceramic rooster. A BIG one. But I had a change of heart because my things tend to get broken by some incident. I had two different roosters in my cart but this one won out due to the color. While I was there I added to the few small decorations I have around the apartment. I bought the orange one to add with the butterfly and bee.

This gazing ball was hard to pass up. For now it sits in the corner of my living room in the sunlight. Beautiful!

I left there and went to Antique Alley. Roads were closed off for a car show. It makes it hard for me being new to the city to navigate but I found my way. I went to at least a dozen shops. Fun. Bought mother a Mother's day gift. The wonderful lady gift wrapped and wrapped to ship it for free! I then went and added to my collection. Vintage costume jewelry.

I went home for a little while and had something to eat and a rest. I had promised dd I would go to the mall to pick up some shoelaces she wanted. I remembered seeing some candles that I love. If you like a good candle check out Circle E. I loved this fragrance so much I bought the biggest jar for my mother and I. I burned through mine quickly. Every time I go to Mom's I light this candle first thing! Here it is.

I was busy but this break helped restore my spirit. Thanks for stopping by!
