Look What I Found Today!!!!!!!!!!

Jack and I went out antiquing today to find him a desk for his train room. We found one that would have been perfect, but it was SOLD! I thought he was going to cry!

BUT guess what I found?!?! I couldn't believe that tucked way in the back in an obscure corner of an antique store were these tiny little Putz houses! I grabbed them up so quickly I think I created a hurricane in the back of that store. Are they not the most adorable little cardboard houses?! They look a bit "unsophisticated" but I thought they were adorable. I may "jazz" them up a bit and sell them but I'll keep one for me probably. Just what I need - another "thing" to splash around my home.

Then on to another store and look at the little antique bell I found! I'm ecstatic today. Of course, it's going to get a coat of glossy pink paint ( I hate orange!) with some roses on it but I've been trying to find one on ebay and always lose it to someone else and they go up to a pretty high price also! I got this one for a song! I'm on a roll today!! Hah

Oh, yes, once when we went looking for a new car for Jack, guess who got the new car.....yep, moi. But he did get a train sign for his train room!! (She says as she smiles a big smile!)


  1. Connie, you lucky girl to find these great treasures!! I love the houses and the bell will be pretty in pink and roses!!
    You had a great day!!
    hugs, Celestina

  2. Tell Jack not to worry there will be a better one someplace else just waiting for him to take home.

    Be sure to show us your finished project on the houses and bell. I'm with you no orange.


Comments are so nice and I thank all of you that leave one for me.
