If you lean in you may be able to smell the beautiful Lilac.
Isn't it wonderful?

This beautiful Lilac was plucked from the biggest Lilac bush over at Portobello Road.

I want to share a little shopping trip I took.
Last Friday I took the afternoon, (which turned into the entire day) and had a Antiquing Road trip to beautiful
Historic Leesburg Virginia.

First I must share this wonderful farm with a field of purple. I don't know what is growing, but this caught my eye and I had to pull over and take a picture.

Ahhh, spring in Virginia, I just love it.



Leesburg is a 4hr drive from where I am. It is just north of DC. The day was beautiful and sunny, the first of many more to come this Spring here in Virginia.


OK, now ready to shop?
One first shops I visited was,

"the cottage"

This shop is the reason I decided to make the trip again. Last time I was in Leesburg, I looked all over for their shop but could never find it. I know I was close, but had no luck. So when I heard they moved, and I knew I would find it this time, I just had to go take a look at their beautiful shop. And they were the nicest people too. Makes shopping so much more fun.












From there I went on to a few more places in the little downtown are. Next was
"four shabby chicks"

You must go check out their blog they have much nicer pictures. This sweet shop in inside a great antique mall.













Oh how I wish I had room for this house...


From there I headed out of town hoping to miss busy D.C. Traffic. That didn't happen, So I made the best of it and headed to Lucketts. However, on my way there I stopped at a few other places that caused me to whip my steering wheel to a quick right turn to...

"On A Whim"

But wait, there is more. I finally got to

"Lucketts" http://www.lucketstore.com/home.htm

This place was wonderful and over whelming Everything and anything vintage you can think of this place has it. And there were more shops with in this place. The building is very old, and it was 3 stories high, all filled with vintage treasures. I believe it is made up of about 30 vender's.


Urn anyone?







I hope you all enjoyed my little shopping trip. I for one am exhausted.


Oh wait, one last thing. What did I buy?

Just a few treasures.
