CaBin Fever Cure - Out & About ShaBBy-SHoPPing...

A Day of Antiquing

This past Saturday, Frog Husband and I bundled-up and ventured out...  We shopped an Antique Show in Janesville, Wisconsin ~ then explored quite a few surrounding towns as we worked our way home...  Many a Shop I had never been in...




The Homes and Buildings in this area had such FaB Architectural Interest...  This was the entrance to an Antique Store in Milton, WI ~ BlackByrd Primitives 
By Days End, I had acquired a nice small SHaBBy-STaSH...
