it happens every spring*...

I think about buying an old pick-up truck.

then I daydream about going to auctions at farm houses out in the countryside & filling it up with vintage treasures. and getting a little airstream to hook up to it for weekend camping trips to quaint small towns. stopping at diners & thrifts stores {& flea markets & estate sales & rummage sales} along the way, while wearing cute skirts...

I took a very {very} small step towards realizing that dream last weekend when I bought a truck:


yeah, its just a little die-cast toy but its a start...

and because I seldom just have one of anything, here are the other toy cars I got:




have a great weekend!

*I know its not technically spring...I'm just getting a head start :)

Those cars are so sweet! My thoughts are definitely turning to spring as well...it's can't come quickly enough for me.

Ah! That is my dream truck, except mine is John Deere green. And I dream of tooling around town with the windows down and the warm air blowing in my hair.... Now you've given me spring fever!

We are definately kindred sister spirits. I would go with you in a second to hunt for treasures. If you ever come to Colorado, we have a great antique market the first Saturday of each month, May thru October. I have scored unbelievable stuff for my house. Can't wait for yard sale season to start!

Oh man! Those are pretty awesome. I want to go thrifting/antiquing/treasure hunting too! You find the best stuff.

My "dream" car is a 1940's Dodge, maybe Chevy truck with the wood slats on the sides of the bed. Kelly Green or Robin's Egg blue..smiling just thinking about it! Has to be spring and summer though...no winter in my daydreams of this truck! Loved your pictures!
