lunching and treasure hunting...

this morning the sun was actually shining...
{until the rain kicked in...}
 
my mom came over to take me out to lunch as an early birthday treat... {i'm turning forty next week... i can't even believe it} we went to o'charley's which never disappoints... those rolls!
 
we stopped by pier one which i like to do occasionally... it's always fun to check out their pillow selection, hand towels and seasonal items... today i left empty handed but it was still fun to look around...
 
then we headed to lou berry's and ichabod's treasures {i've talked about these shops before}... you never know what you might find...
 
the ichabod's side of the store was getting rearranged and the owner was working on some projects so i'll have to stop back in soon to take some pictures there...
 
over on the lou berry side, there was lots to look at...
this tray almost came home with me... should i have bought it? i'm still contemplating... i kind of want to hang it on my wall...
 i haven't perfected the art of digging through old linens yet...
 but this crazy quilt was really cute... perfect for a picnic... or a photo shoot prop...
 i did grab this tin... i love the colors and patterns on it... and i'm pretty sure i have supplies of some sort that can be stored in it... the milk glass banana boat was pretty, too... but i already have one in a different pattern... i don't know that i need two, do i?
 in the right setting this old chippy table would be perfect...
and these pots and pans look like something straight out of the kitchen in my barbie house from the seventies... silly enough to make me smile :)
 
i like days like today... hope you're having a good one, too!
 
now... i'm off to help marina with her homework...

Sounds like such a fun day! I love these little treasures and I love days like that....although I can't remember the last time I had one! I will need to make it happen with my mom soon, minus the little ones :) Happy Birthday, my friend!
