A Blessed Easter and a Small Town Antiquing Find

My in-laws live in a tiny Texas town, population 400, 6 miles down a dirt road. I LOVE LOVE LOVE spending time at the farm with my family. We spend most Christmases and Easters at the farm and the kids play HARD with the cousins.

The girls and I took a trip to the next town to get groceries at Wally World. On the main drag through Rockdale, there was a CUTE antique store. It was getting to close to lunch and we had the groceries, so it was a quick trip through a HUGE store... UGH! BUT I did manage to find a few things...

Sheet music from 1924

Fantabulous reference book from 1904...

And some silver spoons for $1 each!

I got some cute ideas too...

I spent less than $20 for my wears and look forward to an encore trip to Rockdale.

We had a blessed Easter here in Texas. Time spent with family and friends and a special worship service to remind us of the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross. HE IS RISEN!

Love, Whyt
