My five this week are five treasures that I bought whilst visiting Renninger's at Mount Dora whilst on my holiday to Florida. Both my husband and I love a walk around the antique centre and the street of shops and wish that we could bring some of the larger pieces back but we are content to find a little something for the craft room.
My first treasure is a old wooden box which I couldn't resist and was brought back in our hand luggage. It was certainly worth the messing about with it in my husbands back pack. I am going to use it to store my sewing machine bobbins.
What a find, I really do love it.
My second treasure is two ribbon holders complete with ribbons, they too were a carried back in my hand luggage wrapped up in my cardigan and survived the journey well.
Thirdly, with two new Grand babies expected I couldn't resist this vintage baby pattern book to add to my collection. It certainly made me smile.
It is quite a thick book with lots of patterns so wonderful to browse through. My eldest daughter will love it she is a great fan of vintage style baby clothes.
My fourth treasure is two stitching pattern books. The first is Southern Roots a representation of the heritage of the Low Country region of the South. I found it enchanting. The second one is Wild Animals of North America which is a real delight seeing some of the amazing wildlife.
Finally, my fifth treasure is a leaflet and sampler depicting hearts and as it was so close to our 34th wedding anniversary which we celebrate tomorrow I thought this was a wonderful addition to my Five on Friday choices. I fell in love with the simplicity of the patterns and loved that Christmas examples were included.
Some amazing treasure, with some wonderful memories of a great holiday. I am once again joining Amy over at Love Made My Home for the weekly get together.
See you soon.
