Window Shopping and Wishful Thinking!!

Oh! My! Goodness!!  

Today I went to one of my very favorite stores, Antiques at the Loop!  It is the most wonderful store!  I truly could stay in there for hours, but, alas, I usually have my little one with me so I have my path through the vast space down to a science.  After visiting so many times I have my several booths that I hurry to immediately.  Usually my first stop is the area with vintage Ironstone.  Today in a booth nearby I found six American Fostoria salad/dessert plates.  They are so sweet and will be a good addition to my growing collection.  And at only thirty-six dollars. they are an inexpensive treasure!! 

Here are some other BEAUTIFUL items that I would dearly love to own, but, they are a little too costly for a random Saturday afternoon of antiquing.  I did inquire, however, and lay-away is offered!! Hmmm.... Maybe I will own one of these beauties soon!  

These are the most amazing chairs I have seen in quite a while -  absolutely beautiful! There was a sign that said a table was arriving soon and would be sold separately * swoon* !!  

My husband does not understand why I am so in love with this cow picture. 
 I can't explain it, but I love it.  What is not to love?  The sweet face and chippy frame make me smile! 

Isn't he beautiful?

I immediately loved this picture of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.  I have a small oil painting of Cavaliers, but this large one would be lovely somewhere in my home.  They look just like our fur babies, Bentley and Clarabel. 

Aren't these bunnies adorable?  

Don't you just love to window shop?  I could amuse myself for hours rambling through stores and planning where I would place a perfect piece of furniture or exquisite artwork.  In the end though, I am happy to leave with my new treasure to add to my collection and lots of pictures to leaf through when I am day dreaming about decorating! 

Thanks for visiting Buttercup Bliss,


  1. Good choice for shopping! I have a booth at Antiques at the Loop and spend most of my profits buying other pretty things I find there! It's a dangerous business venture!
    And yes, that cow painting is sweeeeet!

    1. I had no idea you have a booth at Antiques at the Loop! Coastal Charm has one there too. Where is yours located? I truly love that store! I also love to come to Fairhope, but Antiques at the Loop is easy for me to run to while I am running errands around town. :-) I haven't been to Fairhope since August. We got there too late on Saturday to visit the shops. I hope to come soon. It is the sweetest town ever!!

  3. Sounds like you had a wonderful day! The cow picture is so sweet! Love the eyes. I think you need the Cavalier picture...don't you? I haven't been to Antiques at the Loop in awhile. I think a visit is in order and maybe a stop at Big Time Diner!

  4. Lisa, you have excellent taste! I loved everything you did, so either we both have great taste or your husband is right??? Nah, that can't be it!

  5. P. S. I just added you as a favorite to my blog! Don't want to miss a thing!

  6. Enjoyed the vicarious shopping! Favorite stop for me as well...when I retire, watch out! Here I come. Love to visit your blog.

    1. Becky, you and Lynda and I need to plan a day of antique shopping soon! We would have so much fun!
