My friend Lori is just about the sweetest person you could meet. She is so nice and I consider her a true friend which in this day and age is hard to find. She has a great family and lives in the cutest house filled with the most adorable things she has found mostly at yard sales and antique stores. Lori and I love going on antiquing/thrifting trips. We have done several of these now and we have such fun doing them. We meet at one or the others house first for tea and a home baked goody and we usually give the host person a small gift and exchange a recipe or two. Then we head off for the antique and /or thrift, consignment or gift shops. In the fall we also go to farm like stores for apples and cider donuts and the like. This past Wednesday was another one of our trips! We met at Lori's this time and had raspberry muffins and tea! We headed off to a neighboring town in Lori's husband's truck. I love when we bring a truck because then we know we can bring home just about anything. We hit all the antique stores that we like there and then went out to lunch(we always do lunch too!) . Lori didn't find much in the way of thrifty antique finds this time around but I did come home with a few neat finds. Here's what I came home with
I bought this so I could do this
My grandma had a pitcher identical to this only hers had matching juice glasses. It brought back a lot of memories.
