yep, i went on an adventure!!! 

The ladies of my church have started meeting regularly…(check out our blog here!!)…and our big "field trip" this month was to the Round Top Antiques Fair!! 

I picked up three girlies, and we met a fourth at Starbucks to start our little adventure!! The five of us were excited about all of the shopping possibilities. I myself was very excited about all of the quilts, buttons, and other fun vintagy wildness I perpetually am looking for!!

Here are some pics of us. (For some reason I did not take very many pictures…too busy shopping, I guess!!)

{This is what is called a "cutter quilt"…that means that it is sooooo worn out, it's only use is to be cut up and made into smaller things. I love to pick up cutter quilts (this one cost 5$!!!!), but I have a hard time cutting them up!! I love these fabrics!!}

All in all, this adventure was fun, filled with laughter, refreshment, (a little too much sun…just a little!), and wonderful new memories!!!
