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 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
