a few months back, when i traveled home to chicago, my mom, sister, and i did some antique store shopping in wisconsin. i found some really treasures but had to wait until my mom was down in south carolina to get them because i couldn't fit them in my luggage! the anticipation has been killing me. but, i finally have them. it only took about 2.5 days to put them in their proper place...and i'm still trying to decide if i like what i've done with them all. so, why don't you take a look?
|the only true antique in this photo is the hand egg beater. the rest of it is from hobby lobby, but i love the retro stuff and it goes perfectly with my kitchen!|
|i loveee these antique spice cans. i wish spices still looked like this.|
|and this antique kraft american cheese box was a must have.|
|new kosher salt container! perfect, right?|
|i really liked these two things too...but i'm still searching for a home for them.|
|my mom got me this awesome printer's tray for a few bucks. oh, the possibilities.|
|i finally got my antique metal fan. hooray!|
|i love this little beauty.|
|i still need to get some of the junk off of it...but it adds to the antique-ness, doesn't it?!|
|and of course, lucy. she's not an antique. i just love her. and my new dress from target.|
so, there you have it. my home is now filled with new antiques. yeee!
on another note, my mom also brought me some of my christmas decorations from home. yes, i am that girl that has decorated my whole bedroom for christmas since i was 13. yes, i did have a full-size christmas tree in my bedroom. and yes, i'm proud of it. i love christmas. the decorations are currently in boxes downstairs and it's taking everything in me to not pull them out and set them up. it's a little too early though, right?
