Antique Malls

Hey Neighbors!

We took a quick trip, five days, four nights including traveling to Independence and Columbia Missouri.  We managed to visit a couple of really nice restaurants and a couple of antiques malls.  I LOVE to wander the antique malls.  Since each person in my family likes and/or collects different items it is always fun to look around.

One son collects Breyer horses.  My fifteen year old daughter collects bird items, like figurines, music boxes etc.  My 12 year old daughter likes to collect paper dolls, glass figurines (slippers and ladies), and just about anything Chinese.  My other son likes things to do with planes.  I collect Boyd's Bears and Cherished Teddies.

Anyway we managed to wander through three different antique malls this trip. I personally like when the are set up in aisles so you know where you are going and where you have already been.  Some are very disorganized and you are constantly tripping over things.  I have even been to a couple where you couldn't even get in to see what was available.

We managed to find a couple of gifts while at the antique malls and I added a couple more bears to my collection.  Now I am having some down time at the hotel to recover!

Hope you all had a great weekend too!  See you At the Fence soon!

I love the little lady wit the 2 broken arms. We do have a favorite antique mall - Salamanca Antique Mall. We don't usually buy anything but we love to look.

The picture of the old lady really creeps me out - but I can't stop looking at it! I collect old German Nutcrackers.

I agree about the little old lady doll...she looks a bit freaky to me. HA HA! Then again, if I had two broken arms I might look like that too. LOL!

We have a few around here but taking a 6 and 8 yr old is risky. Too much to look at and very tempting to touch. I like old blue glass.

I love walking around an antique store. I usually never buy anything, though. The stores that I walk through in Southern California are usually very expensive.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
