Taking Time

March 30, 2009

Friday, I left early from work to hit an antique store just around the corner. It had been calling to me for a while. Do you get those callings? For over an hour I lost myself in the hunt for treasures. The bad thing now that I am more choosy and selective, many times I do not find it. For a while, I have been looking for a old vintage ledger filled with handwriting.

Well I found it... Isn't the handwriting gorgeous? I just love the look and feel of old papers.

The I found some beautiful old rhinestone necklaces and broach that I just had to have. They marked them down from $10.00 to $5.00!! Can't wait to show you what I've done with the necklace!!

For months I have been looking for a hymnal and on my last few minutes of looking, I found this gorgeous small one. I had initially passed it by the first time thinking it was a wedding book because of the golden bells, but the second time around I opened it up and there it was the hymnal I have been looking for and the best thing... $5.50!! And then I also scored with the larger sheet music book... $3.00!

I can't wait until my next antiquing time!

I love old papers too. Actually I love just about anything old. I have really fun dreams of finding the most AMAZING estate sales full of what I love for really cheap. Then I wake up and wonder how my brain came up with all those cool antiques while I was sleeping, hehe!

I love it when find great old stuff at the antique markets. It's like finding buried treasure. Especially when it's stuff you've been hoping to find for a while. I haven't been antiquing like that for a while. Now you've got me thinking...I need to go too!!!
