Last week Frankie took me to one of her new favorite little antique shops. I can see why she loves it, it's crammed with kitchy goodness. Olio has all kinds of 20th century kitchy cool stuff.

I am constantly seeing stuff on blogs that I know I'll never find but HEY LOOK AT THIS! When Beth posted about the reflectors I thought wow, I'll never find those.. but holy cow, look at this stash. Frankie and I bought a bundle so we'll be ready.

Melissa had the nicest collection of paint-by-number I've seen. Well you know, have seen outside of a magazine!!!

I love her Christmas display. There's a Christmas stocking in green that I think is the same as the one I've used for years, except mine is white. Maybe this year I'll make the little repairs it needs. I think maybe it was made from a kit, I'm not sure. I'll have to ask mom.

Frankie and I had a great outing, lunch at Toasties, then we went to Back Porch Fabrics which is always fun. Did a little grocery shopping and hung out watching tv. It didn't start raining till I was almost back in town which was perfect timing.
It's the week of Christmas people! I need to get a ham!! Stat. And then get caught up on my new fun show Life. Seriously, how did I miss this one before.

What a great find, Pam! We have so much less of that in our area now - I think because of eBay and Craig's List (oh, and did I mention the economy - ugh). Looks like you two had a great time!
We bought our ham over the weekend in case we get snowed in - and guess what - we did!!!

Doesn't that look like a FUN store?! I would need to go with an experienced guide who would let me have first choice. ;-) The vintage Christmas stuff is great. Hope your ham is nice and, well, hammy. While I am a "vegetarian," I have to sneak a tiny bite of Ossian ham on Christmas. It's pure salty goodness! Hope you have a very merry Christmas!

I would love to be antique-ing in your neck of the woods these days. We are having a little cold snap - the high today was 11 degrees. So, know that I am envious!

Merry Christmas - and we got a ham too!

It is a good show and luckily you can catch all the previous episodes on You missed it because NBC keeps moving it all around on the schedule. Last year it was Monday nights. This year it debuted at Friday nights (seriously...did they want to cancel it?), then it moved to Mondays, and then again to Wednesdays. I hope they can keep it still enough to attract an audience as I am fearful they will cancel it. It has just the right amount of humor, irony, and suspence. I cannot believe the ending last week.....uggh, and to wait until Feb???? Enjoy your new show.
