I received a coupon in the mail for $10.00 off my meal at a not so local, local restaurant.
The restaurant is in another county over.
Mr. Cottage said lets spend Sunday doing the rounds.
We haven’t done the rounds in a long time.
Don’t let your mind wander too far into the gutter.
The rounds include driving the back country roads and taking in the beautiful scenery.
Hitting the antique shops, lunch at the $10.00 off restaurant and finally a few thrift stores.
A few of our finds from the day.
Mr. Cottage spotted this pile of Chinese money from the 1940’s.
I love the graphics on this old Clark’s thread box.
A basket full of old lace and tatting.
Vintage fabric – oooh aaahhh
It has a bird on it, so it must go home with me.
Poor Cock Robin printed in the 1800’s. The graphics are stunningly colorful and beautiful. A child’s tale, a wee bit on the sad side.
More birds – these are from the Ogden cigarette company which was a branch of the Imperial Tobacco Co. of Great Britain and Ireland.
Will’s Cigarettes – Butterfly cards also from the 1920’s. I enjoy the back with the typeset almost as much as the images on the front.
These are the stuff of my mixed media dreams. My creative thoughts are swirling with the possibilities.
What a grand day Mr. Cottage and I had on our coupon date.
I’m off to play with my new stash.
See you later,
