These R a few of my F*A*V*O*R*I*T*E things!

A Teacup Chandelier...and in my favorite Blue & Whites...
Stopping by my favorite place at Aunt Bee's! The first thing you find is her glass jar of cookies to your right on the counter! I'll have one today Aunt Bee, Thank You! :)
Next to the cookie jar, you'll find her business cards...she's the SWEETEST lady you'll ever meet!
She serves piping hot coffee to drink free while I roam the 70+ vendors in her Antique Shoppe
How can I not fall in love with this oil on canvas?
And teacups galore, this one was "only" $4~
I couldn't walk away without falling in love with this pink hand inscribed bedroom dresser...Oh, how I want that! It spells out PINK just walking by it! Lovin it... This caught my eye as SOON as I walked in! French & Fab!
This next item,only $8! A "totally" fabulous purchase! I can't wait to wear a vintage black dress and wear this little lady! You'll see her below with a special piece in my collection of vintage wear!
These little piggies cried all the way home...not really! :) But they'd like to! I already have my own Kitchen Piglet - these are ONLY $15 or less. I think they are $13.99. If you're interested in them, post a comment and I'll call Aunt Bee to see if they are still there. They ARE a super catch! The little chalkboards are removable too.
How do you like my vintage hat with the vintage black slip that belonged to my grandmother? I want to get a pic wearing these together... Vintage is SO chic! The armoire was a great purchase at a yardsale two years ago for $75. We use it for the TV in the Pink Guest room!
This, "I HOPE" will be the next hat I add to my collection! She's only $10! Can't you just see this on me? I can too! ;)
And this lovely? She's a plant......I met her at the Athens GA Botanical gardens last week. Isn't she a BEAUTY?
Thanks for dropping by and enjoying a few of my favorite things!
Hugs to all~

That's the one we were at right CC? I recognize the counter, cookies and coffee stop.
See that picture of the Eiffel tower? Make sure you look in my kitchen, I have some cool French prints too!
Would that be MY PINK ROOM that the armoire is in with that pretty hat? I would LOVE to see you in it. Maybe you should save it for our Peignoir party here at the cottage.
Oh I see you were up late last night. Thanks for the late night chat. I was laughing soooooo hard, you made me sleep like a baby : )
Love You to pieces CC
Love Me

One of my favorite things to do (of course) is to roam around and look at vintage stuff! What fun... and since I have a toddler I don't get to go as much as I used to so it was nice looking through your post!

Thanks so much for stopping by today... I think window shopping the sites can be fun too!

Oh CC, I want to go Aunt Bee's! What a wonderful place. So many treasures, and looks like you brought home a real treasure. That hat is wonderful! Hope you are going to model it for Blogville. (This would have been a great link for my Favorite Things linkup). laurie

Those were lovely favorite things indeed. I LOVE old hats, new hats, funky hats....but look horrible in hats. I'd love to see a photo of you in those hats.

btw...I am one of Claudie's gals that she has invited out to her pink cottage next summer. I thought I would make a visit to each of your blogs and get to know you a little better. Then, if I do indeed get to make that trip, it will be like hooking up with old friends.

and meeting new people is one of MY favorite things.

Hi CC,
Oh I want to shop there too. What gorgeous treasures. I love all things vintage too. The hat is beautiful and I love it with your black vintage slip. Love your armoire too.
And, what a gorgeous teacup chandelier in blue and white.

Looks like you had a wonderful day and thank you for sharing your favorite things.
Thanks again for the number for the shoe molds. However I decided I needed to purchase winter ice skates instead since I have many orders this season for them. Thank you so much for being so helpful and dear.

Have a great eveing and rest of the weekend.
Love to you my friend,
Celestina Marie

I recognize that great place ! I brought some things home to Vancouver from there. That's the place we bought the little white gloves. And that black hat of mine with the bow on the back. So many great things there.

Loved all your fav's !

Hi CC,
I was so thrilled to hear from you!
It sounds like your a busy lady as usual. I hope you post more pics of that darling Kate someday. She is such a beautiful child! Just like her Grandma.
I am watching Addison tonight. I keep her over 1 night a week so her Mommy can have some fun time or get caught up on sleep.
Only thing, then Grandma is sleep deprived.
But I sure love taking care of her!
So keep in touch friend. I always am thrilled to hear from you!!!!!
Big Hugs,
Cindy
