A great philosopher once said. . .

When it's too hot to do any work, go thrifting.  
Well, actually, I'm the one that said it and it seemed like a good idea.
I visited one of my favorite stops. . . the Antique Mall of Brevard.

I love this beautiful pink watering can.

. . . more pretty pinks

lots of pretty milk glass . . .

It was such fun enjoying the cool and pouring over all of the beautiful treasures.

Then the guilt set in. A very wise person once told me 

"Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today." She also told me quite frequently

A stitch in time saves nine.

That wise person was my sweet grandmother. She had sayings for everything and 

her words come back to me often. Sometimes as a sweet memory and other times to give me

direction or get me back on task.

Do you have any sayings that were passed on to you and continue to be with you today?

Words you find yourself repeating?

I think I need to get busy and make up some lost time. I'm glad you dropped by and

y'all come back.

Linking to Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound


  1. I love the sweet pink watering can. I love to browse through antique shops. Wishing you a happy Saturday.

  2. Lovely pinks! Lots of eye candy here and I love antiquing too. Happy Pink Saturday weekend.


  3. Thrifting does sound like a fun way to beat the heat. :)

  4. I agree with all the old sayings. I spend a lot of time in antique malls. Mostly looking. Seldom buy.

  5. I like that watering can too! Happy PS.

  6. Hi Grampa used to say, Red sky at night, sailors delight. Red sky in the morning, sailors take warning. Seems to be true here.
    Looks like you had a nice reprieve from the heat.
    Enjoy your weekend.

  7. Hi Annette,
    I like the way you spend a hot summer day. I do love digging through vintage stores. I'm always searching for a great deal on something wonderful. Happy Saturday!

  11. What a fun place to spend a day looking round! My favorite saying, which came out of the mouth of an 11 year old girl was, "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit!"
