Let's Go Shopping!

So many of you have tempted me with your shopping trips, so I thought I would take you with me and we'll stroll through this precious little shopping area.

First of all we'll go into Capricci's Antiques and Home Decor. Oh, this little hutch looks almost like mine that's in my breakfast room. Look at all the lovely dishes!
Beautiful sparklies! Where would you hang these?
More lovelies!
Cockadoodledoo! I see you!
I love Nana's. Let's go inside...
Beautiful little night lights...
I just can't seem to get away from anything 'rooster'. See those little black pie birds? How quickly my head turns!
Such a cute homemade apron! Wouldn't I look beautiful in this? It would look so nice with my gorgeous hair! ;)

Now, is this the most precious little pillow made with vintage doilies, buttons and lace. Hey, I'm thinking I may have to try to do this myself. I'm so creative! Have I told you that before?

Does this make you want to wash dishes? So colorful and I spy another rooster!

Tea cups and tea pots! My heart is skipping beats here...
I'm going to be fine now. I can't leave Nana's without some tea. Ginger Peach, doesn't that sound so good?

For our last stop we'll head into Se Le Ve's!
Have you ever seen such beautifulness, teaness or fruitness?
More teaness! My my goodness!

Hope you've enjoying our little shopping trip today. Sorry I didn't bring along much money to spend. Mr. Precious will be so shocked! lol

uh oh
Chloe Dawn is pouting because I didn't bring her a present. Oh, Darling, I'm sorry I didn't buy you anything today. But I can give you a doggie cookie. Is that better now!? Shhh...she is so spoiled! ;)
I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~
Can't Buy Me Love
Can't buy me love, love
Can't buy me love, love
I'll buy you a diamond ring my friend
If it makes you feel alright
I'll get you anything my friend
If it makes you feel alright
Cause I don't care too much for money
Money can't buy me love
If you say you love me too
I may not have a lot to give
But what I got I'll give to you
Cause I don't care too much for money
Money can't buy me love
Can't buy me love everybody tells me so
Can't buy me love no, no, no, no
~ John Lennon/Paul McCartney

  12. Good morning, Sheila.

  14. I'm going to be singing that one all day! Love it.
    What fun little shops.
    I have to tell you that I have the same rug as you! The one Chloe Dawn is sitting on in the last photo. It was in my formal living room in my last house. Right now it's in my basement, until we finish getting moved in.
    Great minds must think alike.

  19. Oh Sheila what a beautiful blog! I'm looking foward to coming back again and again! I'm drooling over those roosters and the ginger peach tea! I believe I would enjoy shopping with you! Chloe Dawn is precious! Thanks so much for visiting my place...have a great day!

  20. Sheila, I have something for you on my blog.

  21. I forgot about the League City area..I have only been there a couple of times and that has been quite a while back. The reason I know about the area is I grew up in Houston, and my parents still live right by Hobby Airport. When I was first married we lived in Friendswood. Now I live in a small town about halfway between OKC and Dallas, Texas.

  22. wow, I have never seen so many roosters out side of my home! hehe You found some amazing things, beautiful shoppes!

  23. Shelia; Wow what a shopping trip!!! I am so glad you took us with you. I just wish I would have bought something. lol; I just love looking in shops like that, I can go for hrs. Love all the photos of all the pretties. Thanks for taking us.


  24. No wonder you have such nice things in your home - you have the cutest little places to shop. Those little pie birds - that apron- cute! And you know, Chloe Dawn deserves a treat, she had to wait and wait for you to come home......Robyn

  25. Thank you for taking me along on your awesome shopping trip...now I have to get back to work to pay for everything I've purchased! :)

    Have a wonderful evening!
    Kathi :)

  26. Hi Sheila, I'm so sorry that I have not been here to see you. I have been so busy since we got back from our little vacation. Everything came in at once in the garden and I had to get that picked and put up. We had a wonderful time, I'll be doing a post on my vacation in a few days.
    This shopping trip you took us on was wonderful! You are so lucky to have such beautiful shops! Tea sounds delish, I'll have a cup right now! Poor Chloe Dawn, Molly pouts too if I don't bring her somthing home. LOL
