This was an exciting weekend. I took a day off work Friday and mom and I went to Branson to have some fun. They have a new Michael's that is awesome!

I found these sweet vintage cards at a flea market on Saturday.




Here is a sweet baby book I found from 1955. Mostly it's empty but the graphics are cute!



This reproduction enamelware spoon holder was one of Mom's great finds!


Another beautiful piece of Folk Art Pfaltzgraff to add to Mom's collection! In a cute basket weave design!


Saturday was an especially exciting day. It was the day the scrapbook store, The Scrap Nook opened.
Some of you know I tried getting a job there but I was too late.
We were there as soon as they opened. It was very busy. We were packed in there like sardines! It was hard to see everything, so I look forward to going back soon and seeing everything better!


Whenever I could find an empty spot I took a picture. I was able to show most of the store. It's not very big but I am already in love with it!


I walked in and my first thought was, "I should be working here".
The women working there were very friendly as were the owner's family. In fact the owner's daughter was so sweet! I wore a Twilight shirt that day and when she saw it she commented on it. Later in the day we came back for a drawing and when we walked in the door she said, "It's Twilight girl!"



They have so many of my favorite product lines and the atmosphere was so pleasant.



We look forward to spending lots of time there!

I hope that if you are ever in the Springfield, MO area that you will stop in. Maybe you'll see me there!

Wishing you happiness, Lindsey

Cute vintage cards! That scrapbook store look like someplace that would be hard to drag me OUT of, LOL! :)

Lindsey, were you hiding in the store taking pictures? I'm always too chicken to ask if I can take pictures. I have hidden in model homes before and taken pictures...

You and your mom have a great week!!

You live near Branson! My husband has promised me a trip there next year. I hear it is such a lovely place with lots to see. Be a regular customer and you will be on their minds if a position opens up. Have a great week. Elizabeth

The cards and baby book are darling! And I love Mom's utensils and holder. Just keep your application updated at that neat scrapbooking store and I'll bet that they may need you some day! People are always quitting for one reason or the other.I am starting to collect twin things because I have twin girls, 28 years old. I was lucky enough to get a precious twins pink baby book off of ebay.It is probably from the '50's. Not written in, but has a gift inscription on the inside. Blessings, Sarita

Good morning, Lindsey! Twilight girl! ☺ ♥

I've never seen an enamel ware spoon holder like that. That *was* a score.

Thanks for the pics of the store. I've only been in a scrap book store once and there was no one else there! I felt so sorry for the owner but then I saw the prices and thought, "Well, no wonder!" I hope the prices are better at your store. Oh, I hope you do get to work there. I wonder if you'd get a di$count??

Have a great day! ♥

It sounds like you and your mom had a great time....I love seeing all of the finds, and I can imagine the fun you had finding them too!

I was wondering, by any chance.... if you might happen to know the age of my white Christmas Musical..... that I found over the weekend?
Hope you have a great week!
Big Hug,
Queenie~

That is so funny, my baby book is almost identical to that. I even have that exact same picture in it of the 2 little girls and one boy. It is my favorite picture because I have one brother and one sister. I was born in 1964, I will have to see if there is a date in my baby book when it was made. Maybe I will put it on my pink post Saturday. I hope you get a job at the scrapbook store, it looks just like one I go to.

I still have my and my husbands' baby books, My younger brother drew in mine all over, what a shame!

I used to live in Springfield, MO near Branson, grew up there but now in North Carolina, my family still lives there.

Nice Michaels, I don;t have one close to me anymore for all the sweet finds there and internet ordering is more costly!
That is one of the bad things about moving to the middle of no where in the forest!( LOL)

I adore your pinterest boards, following and having fun there!
