"Stress Therapy"

,Isn't it funny how a little shopping can do the body good??? Do you think this therapy works for everybody??? I am not sure if it works for guys too but I think it does??? My husband claims he does not like to shop but for some reason when he does........it is one major purchase??? Wow he goes for the gusto!!! I think it helps him too but it sets us back a little farther!!!

My Therapy is called "Antique Shopping Therapy"


I find myself drawn to old things and well frankly I don't know why.......but I think deep inside  I am an "Old Soul". Somehow being surrounded by old things gives me a connection to the past.


There are a fair amount of antique shops in this area and occasionally I like to venture out to some places off the beaten path and to some of the shops I haven't  been to for awhile. Well it happened the other day..............lots of stress going on in my life but I guess no worse than usual.
I did have a shopping stress treatment the other day and look at the wonderful finds I did find!!!


I got the beautiful quilt above in the first picture. The quilt was labeled as a baby quilt but quite frankly I call it a table quilt...I love it and the quilting is meticulous!!! 
Next I found the perfect little butter mold with dove-tailed corners. When I saw it at the shop, it was not priced??? I asked the shop owner if something was not marked hmmmmmmm was it free??? Haaaaaaa-it doesn't hurt to ask!!! He said "well no but I can give you a good deal" and he sold it to me for $20.00- Yea that's what I'm talking about!!! 
Next I found this awesome white crockery bowl. I can't remember what this pattern is called but I do have the same bowls in the typical shades of brown.

~Well that's all for now~
What's your "Stress Therapy"?

Hey Paula,
That's my kind of therapy! Just went yesterday! Needed a little attitude adjustment, so me and the fledgling Daughter spent the day Junkin as she calls it! Fun times and some Mother Daughter time too!

Yep it really did help my attitude! You girls are really lucky you have daughters! My 2 guys like to shop some but they aren't into Mama's junkin' trips much!!!
