My Top Ten Favorite Finds of 2013 - #4

Welp...I didn't get any of the Christmas stuff put away yesterday.  I went thrifting instead!  Ha!  More on that in the new year.  Anyway, back to the countdown!  Vintage Christmas ornaments started the list at #10, vintage Halloween decorations came in at #9, Franciscan Star Burst Mugs at  #8, my wonderful retro aluminum chairs landed on #7, some lovely vintage dresses came in at #6, and my growing collection of vintage jewelry took spot #5.  My next favorite find/acquisition of 2013 is...
#4 - Treasures from my Grandma
The Little Dude and I were lucky enough to be able to go visit my paternal Grandma in Florida in October.  We went shopping and thrifting and to the BEACH and spent time with our family!!!!  Ugh... I wanna go back SO BAD.  We had the best time with her, and that would have been more than enough but then she sent me home with these treasures too.  The ball jar is probably my favorite from the lot.  It belonged to my Great Great Grandma.  That thing has seen some serious use in it's time, that's for sure.   It was so nice to visit with her and get all the stories about this piece and that piece.  She has a lot of history in her house.  Like her quilt that her aunt made from underpants!  How cool is that?!  I'm very very lucky to have her in my life and am hoping to be able to go visit her some time this coming year.
Do you guys have any fun travel planned for 2014?
