My day away and new finds

Well it was a beautiful day here in Illinois yesterday which prompted my DH and I to get a well deserved day away. We took off in the truck to a small town called Sandwich. This is absolutely one of my fav places to go for antiques and decorations.I neglected to grab my camera for pics and wish I would have remembered to bring it along.There were not one but three awesome antique and country stores.The first one we popped into was called The Red Geranium and oh boy did I have fun in there. They were having a great sale yesterday and I got everything 20% off.I wish I could have walked out of there with everything in the store.I didnt,well cuz my Dh would have killed me and the simple fact that I was trying to stick to a budget but oh man was it hard. I did find a cupboard for our entry and lots of great prims.The second store we went into was called Two Sisters and OMG how awesome.It had been awhile since I had been in there and she had moved every thing around and had lots of different stuff.This was the kewlest prim shop I had ever seen.I found some really kewl stuff for the laundry room.

The third awesome place we ventured into was called Farmers Daughter. It was so cute the way she had everythingdecorated.This is where I found

my big lantern for the porch.

I also found these cute little rubber tips for my tealights.I just wanted to share what they look like.I thought they were so cute.
That's it for now.Thanks for checking out my new finds.Hope everyone has a great day and I will be talking to you soon.
