Antique Shopping!


Tuesday I made my husband take me Antique shopping in Marion, IA. 


He found a slide rule.  I LOVE it.  Bryan said, “It looks confusing…I’m glad we have calculators.” 

Agreed…but it is still a nice piece of engineering history. 


A “new” bread box. 


And a new camera for my collection Smile  At a very good price.


Love this-it is like a 1/3 printer’s drawer.  Perfect size to hold photos in my kitchen. 


A set of nesting enamelware bowls (another great find by my husband!)


Holly Hobbie.  She doesn’t look very vintage.  But it’s okay. I haven’t had a Holly Hobbie doll for years. 


I found 2 bowls.  This one was $6 and isn’t in very good shape.  The other was identical to this one, but was in perfect condition for $16. I picked up this one.  I set it back down. I felt sorry for it.  So I bought it. I think it fits right into our house…



In their home…I loved this red and white polka dot bowl.  There were 3 different sizes, but I didn’t want to spend that much, so I just bought the largest of the 3.  I have never seen anything like this before though. 

It holds ALL of my Distress Inks too!  (I may even have room to buy a few more…)


Finally, this bowl/plate (I can’t figure out exactly which one it is)…I actually bought it because of the color.  (Love).  And it works great in my sewing area. 

I had a lot of fun and saw a TON of inspiring things to get my creative juices flowing. 

Too bad I have to go back to work tomorrow Open-mouthed smile

Happy Thursday!
