This Week's Treasure

I was able to steal away for a few days to spend some time with my girlfriends slugging around antique fairs and stores.  First stop was at Allegan Antique Fair, the last of the season.  It was rainy and I just didn't find anything that caught my eye.  My friend Joan did find a couple of treasures for her home.  We left Allegan and headed down toward the state line to spend a couple of days with another friend.

There is a cute antique mall right around the corner from my girlfriends home in the southern part of the state.  Eureka... I found something that made me want to come home and decorate for fall.


There it was right at the entry and for only $28!!!  Its a cute chalk drawing 16x20 beautiful deep fall colors.  I was going to pick it up when we were ready to leave but my friend Carroll said that I had better get it off the wall and on the counter before someone else grabbed it.  Thank goodness I took her advise, when I went to pay for it the lady at the counter said someone else asked where the drawing hanging  in the entry had gone.  Hee hee, right in the car with us is where it went.  The lady who was interested in it came up to me as I was waiting for the others and said how much she liked this little gem.

The rest of my little mini vacation was spent on the lake shore with the girls enjoying the art communities that dot this part of the lake.  I didn't however find another treasure; good food and some wine but not another treasure.

I love it and would have wanted to buy it, too. Be sure to show us when you you've hung it and completed your fall decorating.

I love it. I would have grabbed that one, too. My aunt used to work with chalk.
