Capturing beauty through cell phone images

Hubby and I hopped in the car and wandered around the countryside last Friday. We headed for
Blissfield , Michigan where I love to go antiquing. I was hoping to find some old jewelry pieces
for my altered bottles, but I didn't find anything except pure

These first few pictures were taken on my cell phone at Blissful Living.  If you are ever in the area,
this store is a MUST see.  It is always so gorgeous. All this white and aqua just drew me in.
LOVE the aqua and white together.

I could take this hutch home with me if I had the place to put it {and the funds}

Another gorgeous piece!  Does it get any better than this? 

What a pretty display of old lace.

Mercury glass, silver and aqua...what more could a girl want? 

Loved this old suitcase display 

I also found Tattered Gypsy's booth in one of the antique stores and I took a
few pics. Isn't the chest above amazing??  Love it! I found out later that she was working in
her store {that will open soon} just down the sidewalk! Had I known I would have stopped
and chatted with her.  

I fell in love with these adorable if I only had someone to buy one for. ha! 

Love the stools that she makes. This one has Jeanne D Arc living wrapping paper adhered to the top. 

I hope you enjoyed my little tour. I can't believe the photos turned out as good as they
did because I do not have a fancy phone. Just a basic model so I was happy to see that these
came out crisp and clear for the most part.

Happy Monday!!

Hi Sandi!
I loved browsing through this shop, so many things would come home with me!

Your photos are really beautiful! When I see the gorgeous white hutch it tugs at my heart to paint my Hoosier. I have thought of painting it for years but I remember all of the work my husband and I did ages ago stripping layer and layer of old paint to get it to its original condition.

If I should paint it, it would always remain painted.
