I'm home!

It feels so good to be home!  I slept well even if Charlie was on top of me all night...he was afraid I might disappear again I'm sure!  Mr ALC is also glad I'm today while I rest I thought I would do a post about the Antique Mall I visited while I was in Texas.
This was a fun find! A wicker rickshaw!
Only a couple of thousand dollars!
This display caught my eye....Pyrex and vintage ceramics oh my!
Oh be still my heart....I love this 
A mere $795
Oh so cute vintage Flamingo S&P's
I love this vintage bar....
More vintage Flamingos
These are so gorgeous!
Whoops...'gorgeous' price also!
Who doesn't love a pink cow creamer
It's a bad picture, but I love this cute pink Veronica glass...I loved Archie comics growing up!
I love this creamer!  It's made by Shawnee and had a large price tag on it
The matching S&P....I have these that I found if I can just find that creamer for a bargain price!
This was photographed through the glass case so the color didn't come out great...but I love this wonderful dresser set in a sweet pale pink
Vintage Flamingo planter
Love it!
Cute little Birthday angel
Some great vintage ornaments
Pink & White Cowboy boots!  
Ya gotta love Texas! 

It was a fun afternoon and a way to escape some of the stress in Texas.  I did buy one item, can you guess???

Everyone that guesses correctly will be put in a drawing for a fun 
Thanksgiving giveaway!
I have a set of these Publix grocery store S&P's
I love them and would love to send one of you a set!
So make your guess by Monday 11-14 and I will put  all winning names in the hat and choose a winner! 

I'm linking this up with 

Many Hugs,

So glad you are home LInda. WELCOME BACK.
NOw... those PINK and WHITE cowboy boots have my name all over them. Funny, I was looking for some like that before leaving for Asheville. I settled for beige ones : (
Happy PS my friend.

Oh Linda
What a wonderful tour through the antique mall...real eye candy!
I am going to guess that you purchased the pink glass ware dresser set??? That's what I would have come home with. Love it all...

Pondside said...

What a fun place to visit!
So good to hear that you're home safe and cosy. There's really no place like home, is there?

cj Schlottman said...

Glad you are home. I envy you this experience. Wow, I love those cowboy boots and flamingo salt and peppers!

Thanks for your comment on my new post!

Whoa Chickie! What fun... Oh how I wish I was there to check all the hoopla with you..... My daughter had a pink flamingo room when she was a teen. We found tons of vintage things for her... I didn't realize they'd gone up so much. She's going to be heartsick that she got rid of all of that stuff.

Glad you're home!


Jan@southernjunkin' said...

Nice strolling through the mall with you! Vintage and more vintage...cute!! I guess the vintage Christmas ornaments came home with you!

CollectIn Texas Gal said...

Yep, ya gotta LOVE TEXAS. Sure enjoyed browsing the antique mall with you. Somehow, I think you have a thing for Flamingo's. I'm going to email you a cute cartoon I found the other day. Happy Pink Saturday....Sue

Vintage Gal said...

Wow that was fun~ thanks for taking us with you. I am going to guess that you took home the vintage christmas ornaments ;-)

Linda said...

Always a fun way to spend a day...I love the vintage ornaments! I am guessing you bought the cow creamer!

Cozy Little House said...

Too rich for my blood! I just left Texas.

Susan said...

Glad to hear you're back home and getting the rest you need. Charlie and Mr. ALC must have both been so incredibly happy to have you back. Rest and take good care of yourself while you're home.

Fabulous antiques mall... reminds me a bit of the one out near us... just enormous and wonderful. I've gotten lost in it a few times which only means that I had more time to put more things in my cart. Oh dear...

Sending hugs and love,

Marigene said...

I can imagine how happy you are to be home, again! There is nothing like your own bed.
Great flamingos!
The S/P are really cute and would add to any Thanksgiving table.

BECKY said...

Hi Linda! I'm so glad you're home now. Rest up! You deserve and need it! I'm going to guess you bought the flamingo S&P set!
And, I love those adorable Pilgrim S&Ps from Publix!!

Ames said...

Cool things Linda. I love the $295- Flamingo's just not the price. And the old ornaments, now those I could see on my tree. But I think I am really liking those cowgirl boots. Oh yea!~Ames

De tout, de rien said...

How much was that cow creamer? I'm pretty sure I saw the exact same one today at the Salvation Army!

Home Sweet Home!
and "There's No Place Like Home"
Rest and Relax..I image it's been a "hard" trip for you.
Take care. Fun to see shops in other states.

Chatty Crone said...

I am sooooooooooooooo glad you are home.

Now I love that fainting couch and the $295 flamingos. This was a expensive store! Had some really love things.


Love of the Sea said...

I'm guessing you bought the pink Veronica glass. And love all those flamingos and the vintage ornaments!!

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

What "great" treasures!! Girl I have the kitty pitcher, salt and pepper shaker. Are you telling me I have quite the treausre??? Loved the vintage ornaments!! Thanks for your sweet comment about the Open House, it means the world.. hugs ~lynne~

Antiques And Teacups said...

Goodness! That brought back some memories...I had one of those panthers on the TV as a TV light growing up. Did it's eyes light up? Ours did. They used to say you would damage your eyes if you didn't have a light near the TV.
How cool! Loved your photos.

Susan said...

Welcome home, Linda.

Well, let's see now. You couldn't have bought the rickshaw (too hard to get home on the plane. ha ha)

The fainting couch, too, was too large.

I'll guess the flamingo Salt and Pepper shakers.

If it wasn't those, perhaps it was the Veronica glass.

Okay, I'll go with the flamingo S&P shakers. Susan

Sue said...

I would have bought the pink cowboy boots but SO bought those flamingo salt and pepper shakers.....I would bet money on it....

Jane said...

Welcome home Linda! Looks like a fun antique mall...I'm guessing you bought the Veronica glass!

Reenie said...

I say the Vintage Ornaments =)

Linda@Coastal Charm said...

GREAT boots!!! Love those flamingos too!!! For 25 years now...I'm still trying to find the perfect room to put my MIL's PINK FLAMINGO LAMPS...they been in the attic for all r=those years...hoping gaining value:)


Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Those flamingos are just amazing! Looks like a fun visit Linda:@)

Marlis said...

Love the flamingos and the fainting couch.. thanks for sharing with us! Thanks also for your visit.. xo marlis

France Guérin said...

I would also guess for the Pink Flamingos salt and pepper! They are really cute!

Debbiedoo's blogging and blabbing said...

Cool stuff Linda. I have never seen so many flamingos in one place. I loved the pink cow too.

PⒿ @ $ € € ₦$ ₣®0₥... said...

So many pretty finds! The flamingos are pricey. I would need to have a display case in my house to protect them from people and animals alike!

DogsMom said...

I am guessing you had to have found a flamingo at a reasonable price. There seemed to be an endless supply there.

I also visited local antiques shops this weekend. One was stiff, dull, but the other was fun. Great variety, while not at my prices. I will go back to see what I should be dumpster diving for.

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

I'm guessing that you bought the flamingo salt and pepper set! But whichever item you bought, it looks like you had fun deciding! Funny about Charlie sleeping on top of you!!!

the cape on the corner said...

i'm gonna guess that you bought a piece of pyrex, or something with a flamingo that was not 200 bucks. yikes!

glad you are home with mr alc and charlie!

~~Carol~~ said...

Well, I know you have a thing for flamingos, you LOVE Pyrex, and I'd really love to see you in those pink and white cowboy boots, I'm guessing that you brought home the Veronica glass! Glad you arrived home safely, Linda!
