Just the two of us

January 23, 2012

Last week, I texted my husband and requested a weekend away...

just the 2 of us. 

He must have been wanting the same thing because with in an hour, he had the plans made and the hotel room booked. Sweet man of mine....

It was a great, fantastic, and relaxing weekend!! 

We bumped into Michelle and Louie at one of the thrift stores, which was a fun surprise and we ended up spending the rest of the day with them and enjoying their company. We hopped into their car and they escorted us all over the Quad Cities. They know the area well, so we could simply sit back and relax. It was perfect. 

These are just a few of treasures we found and brought home...

Russ found this salt shaker and thought it would be cute in our kitchen. I agree. I wish we could have found it's matching mate. 

I scored a pink Gooseberry pattern Pyrex casserole dish. My first, but I hope not my last. 

Another cute Pyrex bowl in the Butterprint pattern. The color is perfect. 

This was Michelle's find and she lead me to it. According to her research, it is a Metlox cookie jar sans the lid. I think she's cute. 

A cake carrier. 

Pink depression glasses and sugar bowl. 

Pitcher, creamer and sugar bowl. 

I love old jars! This one is large. I will use it to store pasta or other foods. 

Another find by my husband. He seems to be looking for salt and pepper shakers...

Sometimes you just need to get away and recharge. I was really needing some time away. I am grateful to have a husband who loves me so very much and provided a wonderful weekend away. 

I am blessed...

Have a great week, everyone!!


  1. So glad you were able to get some time away and to relax. I am sure you've needed it.

    Love your finds! Those are so cute!


  2. Looks like you had fun Amy. The colors fit with your new kitchen. Chris

  3. You found some great stuff! Love that pyrex. It's my weakness. :)

  4. So much for 'Just the 2 of us'!!! We had a blast! Thanks for letting us horn in on your plans. Love ya!

  5. What a fun time! Love the pink depression glass and especially that little rooster salt shaker. I bet you could look for the hen on Ebay (or do a Google images search on 'rooster salt shaker'). Then again, you probably don't spend hours obsessively tracking down things. lol I'm wondering why it seems to me that the rooster should have been a pepper shaker. Hmmm.

  6. Wow what fun stuff! I love the pink pyrex!

  7. Looks like a fun day! What neat finds for your retro kitchen ~

  8. It sounds like your hubby is all the blessing you need - and then he blesses you even more by taking you away and finding wonderful surprises for you! LOVE the lambie cookie jar! and the chicken salt shaker, and the pink bowl, and the... I think I love all of it! You'd better hold on to him!

  9. Glad you had fun, and glad you ran into Michele & Louie. Cute things you found.

  10. wow you have had some serious thrifty finds....i love the chicken!!! and those dishes are amazing.
