Don't you just love Saturdays! That the day I try really hard to find "me Time". My work schedule is pretty demanding so just love when I can let go and enjoy a non-stressful day. I'm fortunate enough to live near Boerne, home to Vintage Bliss. So I hopped in my car listening to my favorite Bryan Ferry cd and headed for one of the loveliest stores you could hope to find. Theresa Cano of Garden Antiques Vintage, asked if I'd mind taking a few pictures. Kelly, the owner was nice enough to let me do just that. The picture above is from Kelly's shop. Next time you are anywhere near San Antonio or Boerne, you really should stop by. Vintage Bliss is a truly feel good kind of store. The colors are so restful, and what an eye they have for display. Not only did I get some great ideas...I found some wonderful gifts too. Ok, so most of the "gifts" were for me. I purchased the cutest little soap dish and holder, a Paris chic pillow, a journal, and a small roll of vintage wallpaper with roses of course. One of my purchases was actually a gift...a very nice foot cream for my Aunt Margie who just turned 88 years young. I think she will like it...our feet tend to get really dry as we age.
The next stop was the Antique Mall on Nacogdoches Rd. I'd been eyeing a small display cabinet...it's a nice old one with the original soft pretty green paint...beautifully aged. Well, I decided it was really needed for my "Someday" store. So, it is in the backseat of my car, as I wait for my husband to go to bed. One of those things he wouldn't quite understand. He just doesn't realize that those special pieces are really getting hard to come by.
My final bit of shopping was at Homestead Crafts. While I didn't buy anything, I met Kristy from A Checkered Past and had a really nice time sharing junking stories. She gave me some good suggestions for future Saturday destinations. Only 7 more days. :) We were leaving just as the store was closing and Kristy was caring in a beautiful white framed mirror to put in her booth. As I said, it was closing time....but I just may have to be there at noon when they open.
