A Good Standard of Living




Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business
and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life
may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.

Antique Row-Ft. Collins Colorado

There’s a lot of photos in this post, so it’s a long one!

There’s a really great row of antique stores and flea markets on the southern end of Ft. Collins Colorado.   Dear Jim and I decided to run down and have a look around.  It’s been ages since we went and I was in need of some “junk therapy”.

Our first stop has an outdoor area where they store all of this faboulously (is that a word?) chippy ironwork.  I’m going back to get one of the many rusty, iron baskets they have.  How gorgeous would one of these be with some pretty flowers growing in it?

Who doesn’t love PINK melamine?  If I didn’t already have waaaaay too many dishes, I might have taken these home.

I absolutely adore this little table and chair set.  Not to mention that awesome red and white Pyrex set.

This is the most interesting chest of drawers I think I’ve ever seen.

These cups and saucers are so pretty, yeah?

You should see the prices on these Hummel figurines.  YIKES!

And what DID I buy, you ask?

I bought this for the meager sum of $22.00 with 20% OFF, which made it ONLY $17.60.  My best bargain of the year!

Now I have to rearrange my livingroom to make it work.  I think this is actually a nightstand, but I rarely follow the rules!

  Tongue out

Hope you had a lovely weekend and don’t forget, only 2 days until I announce the winner of the current giveaway!

Peace & Out
