Weekend Antique Shopping

This weekend mom and I headed out to the Gathering of Friends Antique sale in Burnsville, MN. It was our first visit and we had so much fun we plan to make it a yearly event. We spent a couple of hours browsing around and came away with a few new treasures.
Found this wonderful finial. The weathering on it is wonderful can't wait to find a home for it. May add a light white-wash to it to help it ease into my decorating a little better(it's a little to grey for my taste)
Picked up an old flower frog also. They had many styles and sizes and since I have been looking for on I snatched up with mid-sized one. Can't wait to use it.
Found this cute white plate. It is hard to get a good picture of it, but it has a great raised edge and it will go perfectly with my collection.
I spied these cute potholders in red and white and fell in love. Don't know what I am going to do with them but I love them.
I have saved the best for last. Take a look!
The SWEETEST little enamel tea pot in the best color combo ever, red and white.
I. AM. IN. LOVE! I can't believe my good luck.
I also picked up some wheat grass seeds that I spent the morning planting and can't wait to see it sprout. I've checked it at least ten times today hoping to see a speck of green pushing through the dirt. Of course it is WAY to early, I know I'm being silly but a girl can hope right?
