Valentine's Day Fun

Happy Valentine's Day!
It is always busy this time of year at my house.  A few birthdays to celebrate this month along with Valentine's day makes this a very special month.   Even better today was the weather.   A little warmer and not so dreary.

Since Ethan had a half day of school, I "made" him come along on my treasure hunting.  He's always a good sport and just comes along for the talk.  We stopped at an estate sale in McHenry and found a seashell lidded box and a pewter candlestick holder.  At $2, they were too nice to pass up.  Then, on to the Sparrows Nest in McHenry.  I found a nice bracelet there.  I hadn't been into the Pink Door (across the street) for a long time, but since we had time, we stopped there.  It was so much fun!  They had lots of nice treasures.  I ran out of time and will need to go there again soon.  I couldn't leave Austin waiting at school....  I found a long vintage tablecloth, a swan needlepoint doily, a pottery swan and a frog for my garden.  All were priced reasonably.  It's a nice clean store and well organized.  I even ran into a gardening friend that volunteers there a few days a week.  It was nice to catch up with her. 

A few more estate sales are popping up.  They are listed in the paper or online.  Make sure to check them all out.
