Antique Adventures

The sweet little town I work in has some of the best and most reasonably priced antiques. I usually spend a few lunch hours a month browsing through the antique shops in town. I am not very knowledgeable when it come to antiques. I don't try to find priceless heirlooms. I just look for things that speak to me.

This is what I found on my last antique adventure. Please excuse the poor quality of the photo. It was taken in my office with my iphone.

This sweet charcoal drawing (of cows) in a rustic frame just called to me. It has some water damage, but I think it only adds to the charm. I don't plan on hanging it up on a wall. Instead I want to prop it up against a table leg or book shelf (kind of like they do in the Pottery Barn catalog).

The lady at the antique shop called it striking. I think it is charming. My husband thinks it is heinous, but he felt much better about it when he found out it was only $15 and that I didn't plan on hanging it up! :)

Fun Friday: Name That Drink

Since it is Friday, and I have been a bit boring all week. I thought we could play a game.

My husband and I have a little game that we play when we go to restaurants. He grabs the drink menu and begins reading descriptions of the drinks. I then make up names for them. I don't try to guess the real name of the drink. I just create a new and unique name for it. The game is a little silly but for some reason it is loads of fun!

Want to try? What would you name a drink that contained Bombay Gin, Luxardo Maraschino Cherry Liquer and Lemon Juice, garnished with a cherry? Leave me a comment with your creative drink name! There are no wrong answers! Only fun!

This Purse or That Purse!

Oh dear! I haven't blogged in such a long time. I hit a blogging slump or maybe it was a blogging funk. However, I think I have beat my blogging blues for good. I'm finally back, and I have definitely missed y'all!

With my first post of 2011, I am asking for your help! I have been eyeing a couple of purses lately. They are very similar, but I just can't decide which one I want. I love them both equally, but Dave Ramsey won't let me purchase both!

Cast your vote and help me decide! Should I buy Purse One or Purse Two!

Purse One: From New York and Company for around $30

Purse Two: From J. C. Penney for around $50

I'm a cheap purse kind of girl since I am so rough on my poor purses. I usually try to stick to under $50. Lately, I have had a purse craving for a saddle bag type purse. These two are my top, cheap contenders. I can't wait to see which one you pick!!! Thanks for your help!
