A Great Weekend

I drove by a yard sale last Friday and look what I found. This rug was calling out to me from a distance saying "BUY ME, I'm only $2, it's ok, it's your birthday, do it. So I did what I was told to and brought her home. She looks so nice here in my kitchen.

Since last Friday was my birthday, one of my peeps came by and took me thrifting/antique shopping. We came to this quaint little place in Leota, IN. I'd never been there before, but the covered bridge is what really got my attention. This place is home to the Leota Country Frolic which is going on this weekend.

We went to several antique and junk dealers. I really enjoyed this store and I've added some pictures of the treasures I discovered at this place.

Glass door knobs

Barber shop chair, love that color.

Lots of old fireplace mantels.
This beautiful dresser.
For my fellow chair lovers

An entire building stacked full of old salvaged doors.

This old trunk that reminds me of my great Grandma
This chandy really got my attention. For all you milk glass lovers out there. Look at this beauty in waiting.

And look at those exposed beams and that tin ceiling up there. What a great day. I hope your weekend brings you this much pleasure.


  1. Happy be-lated birthday! Sounds like you had a wonderful time with your friend treasure hunting.

  2. Happy b-day! Nothing better to do on a birthday than antiquing/junking!!


  3. Great rug. Sounds like you all had a blast. :) I liked the glass door knobs...those could be fun to display.

  4. Happy belated b-day! Where is that store at? I am just over the border and would love to go there!

  5. Thank you all for the birthday wishes. Leota, IN is in Scott County and there are a few other places to go antiquing/junking in Scott County as well.
