Date Day...

Yeh, I know what you are thinking...
dates are at night.
But we had Date Day an Sunday, we finally went to
an that had something that we liked!

Here are a few of our goodies...

a Virginia made spice box

a cute collection of measures, a fun old red bucket
and an old dough bowl

a nice old pie safe that someone added new tin to...
But we are going to remove that and install rusty screen.

and my favorite piece is this little blue piece.
I can imagine it in the kitchen, pantry,
bathroom holding "stuff"..or anywhere. It is just the
right size!! Can't wait to get her cleaned up a bit.

I hope that everyone had a safe New Year and all went as planned.
I made it to see the ball drop...poor Lee  fell
asleep. Such is life I guess. Nothing earth shattering happened because
we did not kiss at midnight, pretty much same old thing!!

We are finally COLD here today!!!!
But by Friday it will be back to 60 again...ugh!!!
Make it mind up already!

Have a blessed day,


  1. Some great finds. I agree, the rusty screen would look much better.
    It is blustery cold here in Ontario too.
    Stay warm.

  2. Looks like a great date day! Lovin' that old blue cupboard and the measures. Sure wish I could get to that shop of yours one of these days - maybe in 2012. Happy New Year my friend. Dawn

  3. Wonderful finds Robin.
    I so love the pie safe, but would love to see it with the rusty screens.
    Thanks for sharing!
    Prim Blessings

  4. Oh My!!! Love it all...That spice cabinet..Love it... been wanting one of them...but no good space for one... OLM

  5. Oh my WORD!!!! You lucky girl!!! I LOVE the blue cabinet!

  6. You got some awesome finds at the auction. Happy New Year. Blessings!

  7. Wow!! I love the bowls and measures. I think the last piece would look great in my dining room:) Get that screen on the pie safe quick!! We are so old fashioned for a younger couple. We went to bed at 10:30 on purpose so we wouldn't be tired the next day. So much for a New Year's celebration. -Steph-

  8. Now THAT'S my kind of date!!! And just think, you have treasures to remember it by rather than just some silly ol' kiss. (Yeah, I'm getting old....) ;o) Love your finds....That pie same (sans the new tin) and that blue cupboard are absolutely wonderful....hope you'll share photos after you get ol' blue cleaned up and the pie safe restored to dignity....Wishing you a ridiculously happy 2012 Girlfriend....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  9. You found some nice pieces at the auction, we haven't been to an auction in years, think its past time....
