Salutations! We’re still on break from the bathroom remodel and I’m still really enjoying that at the moment. The bad thing about a break is that it’s hard to get going again, if you know what I mean. It’s like when I come in for a drink while working in the garden on a hot summer day and then forget to go back out. I sit down with the ipad and a cold lemonade just for a moment and then […]
Salutations my treasure hunting friends! How’s things? I’m checking in today with a few shabby vintage goodies from my road trip last week. A couple of my dearest friends and I went on a road trip to Glen Allen, VA to visit an antique shop we’ve been hoping to get to for a while now. Life just gets so busy you know, but we finally made it. Holy cow — we hit the mother-load of treasure, this junk store is […]
Summer is here! It’s hot, my daughter’s been repeating the dreaded phrase “I’m bored”, the pop-cycles are chillin’ in the freezer, and there seems to be a yard sale waiting for me every Saturday morning. A cluttered, junky yard sale on a Saturday morning is my idea of Summer!
Are you looking forward to a bit of vintage treasure hunting this Spring? I know I am! I’ve always been intrigued by antique furniture and I’m a sucker for vintage treasures. I guess my love of vintage finds really took off when we purchased our first home. My mom would take me out to estate sales bright and early Saturday mornings, and I couldn’t believe what great pieces we would come home with!
Every now and then I run across an estate sale that should have a sign posted at the entrance stating “shop at your own risk!” The sale where I found this lovely ivory throw was just one of those scrappy, push and pull kind of sales. It’s like trying to keep your head above water in a storm, surrounded by sharks, and constantly getting toppled by waves. It’s funny how excited estate sale junkies get over rummaging through another person’s […]
Once Spring arrives my mom and I are always asking each other the same question, “Any yard sales this weekend?” We went to a great sale a couple weekends ago, and these vintage dishes have found a new home. The stack of little red bowls are my favorite! The vintage dishware mix nicely with the Martha Stewart Whiteware already in my kitchen hutch.
