One thing I was really excited about when I found out we were moving to Illinois was that I would be near lots of great antique shopping.
But since we have been here I haven't had the chance to do any....until now!
I was worried when we had thunderstorms all night, but the sign said rain or shine so off I went!
This was my favorite booth.
She had so many neat rusty metal things.
All kinds of beautiful plants and charming vintage items.
I was too shy to take photos at first, then I heard the vendor was in the bathroom so I started snapping away. When the vendor came back, my little guy started calling me, so it gave me the excuse to take off.
The more I think about it, the more I feel pretty foolish.
I should have just told the lady that I loved here space and asked permission to take photos for my blog.
Duh! Lesson learned.
So do you want to see what treasures I came home with?
(from a different vendor)
I found this very cute pediment.
It may be a reproduction. I'm not sure.
But, I wanted one for above my kitchen window and it was only $10.00.
I brought it home and it fits the spot perfectly, yay!
I can't wait to hang it, but I plan on waiting until I paint the kitchen.
Which probably won't be until this winter.
I want to spend as much time as possible in the sunshine while I can.
I also found this great vintage box.
I am quite sure that it really is old.
Side note, check out the pretty view in my backyard.
I love it here!
Love the chippy paint and rusted nails.
I think I'll have a lot of fun with this piece.
It was ten dollars too.
Spent my twenty bucks then ran home because it was huuuumid!
This mama is very happy with her new (old) white treasures!
