Charleston Finds

Hello there! I'm back with photos of the items I bought yesterday on my road trip to Charleston. Most of these were found at Copper Eagle, a great little antique mall! The owner was named Rachel too, which I thought was interesting because I've never met a Rachel that much older. The things I bought were quite random. I've started collecting McCoy frog planters (this is my second). I think people started staring when I squealed with delight! It will be perfect in the kitchen at the sink for scrubbers. Vintage alligator bag will be coming to work with me tomorrow. The aqua bird planter was a last minute find and I couldn't pass up its sweetness. Believe it or not but my Mom owns this same cookbook and we cook out of it religiously! It has the best chocolate cake and poppy seed coffee cake recipes in it! I'll be sure to share later. I'm sure my mom found that one either at yard sale or antique mall. Finding another one was jackpot!!

 The little inlaid box is actually a toothpick holder, the detail is unbelievable! Black checked apron caught my eye, just something whimsical. The round cow tile will be gifted. I'm thrilled to have found this bracelet, it was in a booth going out of business and I almost didn't see it. It always takes more than one round to make sure something isn't missed. Since I forgot my camera yesterday, this was the best I could do, a camera phone pic at the antique mall.
Tunic: Target (old). Mustard pants: gap (old). Boots: Born, found here. Bag: Thrifted. Watch: Target, similar here. Bracelets: Ten Thousand Villages.
I will have to get a better picture of these boots. They are so comfortable, I wear them all the time! I could wear them all day long and they go with everything, black or brown. What are your go to shoes in winter? Tomorrow we are expecting snow, I'm not sure how I feel about that.  Just downloaded MyFitnessPal on my iPhone. It's a journal that documents what you've eaten and calculates calories. Try it out, it's very eye opening knowing  the actual content of many foods.
