Antiquing with a Blog Friend!

This past weekend I had the pleasure of having company on one of my antique treasure hunts for Bella Rosa.

Miss Kathy of "The Writer's Reverie" blog joined me on an antique excursion through three floors of a local antique mall. What fun we had!

I even found a new favorite treasure for the week.

Miss Kathy found a few goodies too.
There is a whole story behind how we "met" online but had really met in real life before! Turns out, she is married to my Father's second cousin! We're like well, family!

Her hubby and I had a great time looking through all of the family photos... there's just something about old albums that can stir memories and legacies from past generations. We all enjoyed the trip down memory lane!

Later we also enjoyed the nostalgic trip through the many dealer's booths. Ooohing and ahhing at this and that.

Look for my latest treasures in new listings coming soon, to Bella Rosa in the next few days!

That's nice that you got to hook up with your friend. I really like the 'Love' book. Can't wait to see your next treasures. Oh, I went to an antique shop this weekend and looking for brooches. I had the best time browsing.

Yes, Jillian - a great time! We totally must do this again sometime! But, today is Monday and we're all back to work. Lots of memories made - and keepsakes of treasure hunting, though. And, plenty of fodder for posts!
