Little Shops Along the Open Road

Another shop from Clinton Oklahoma, Memory Lane, has great curb appeal.

I found a little ironstone bowl here at an appealing price, and reduced still more on sale.

Not something I would collect, but these soda bottles displayed together have a certain summery appeal.

I do love this red transferware pattern though.

Cheery displays from Independence Day still decorate the windows at Miss Trudy's Past and Present just down the road at Weatherford, Oklahoma.

It's been less than a week on the road now, but I am beginning to feel like one of these adorable rag tag dolls I spotted in the shop. (At least when I wake up first thing in the morning! Hahah!)

It's all about those crazy cute button eyes! So much personality!

Or maybe it's the clothes. Anyway this one especially has me mesmerized.

Loving all the southern green!

 Rain was predicted but only a bit of wind and big thunder so far. Is it still tornado season???

We have sailed through Arkansas, and hit Memphis, Tennessee.

Stay tuned for more to come!

I wish I could get my husband to take a road trip and stop at antique shops along the way. What a fun time! Love those rag dolls. '-)

P l e a s e tell me you bought the red transferware, dear friend!
I have seen a very few pieces at our local Antique Mall for a hefty price.
Most is crazed badly of chipped, so I let it stay in the Mall.
I have decided I need a set of red transferware and this is the pattern I adore!
You are too, too funny! You could never look like the Rag Doll!
Thanks for taking us along on your Road Trip!

I'm kind of late to the party but loved your post about getting house tidy and saying good-bye to it before your trip. And what a darling shop in your next post, although thank goodness we don't have to do laundry like that now!! I'd love to hang laundry, but not have to hand wash it and put it through a wringer first! So are you enjoying the southern swelter? How was my hometown of Memphis for you? I'm sure it'd be unrecognizable to me---it's been a long time since I've been back. And how do you find these cute antique shops along the way? Hope you're having a great time!

Lots of fun things, but my favorites are the ironstone pieces. I don't NEED anything, but I want more white pieces.

I have loved sitting here this afternoon reading your last three posts Jacqueline (and even feeling a teeny bit jealous that you are on this road trip and I'm sitting at my computer:)
You have seen some great shops and I'm sure the scenery has been beautiful as well. It sounds like you are having a wonderful time! I have had a wonderful time just looking through all of your photos of the great vintage goodness along the way! Enjoy the rest of the trip my dear!
