I am on a roll! But I really stopped in to show you all the goodies we picked up this weekend. Most of the stuff we got at the Antique Mart on Saturday. One of the first things I want to show you is one of my latest interests - "salts" (aka: salt cellars, open salts).
|The pretty painted one in the center is my find from this weekend. It's probably about 1930s.|
|Cooper approves. He's fond of cheese. :)|
Here's another one of my treasures:
A super awesome donkey bottle opener! I love him. He's neato. I also got a cuckoo clock at the same place that I got the donkey - but I'll save that collection for another day.
This cool little fishy basically jumped into my bag.
I could not leave him behind and being the happy haggler that I am, I got a good deal on him too. I think he's brass? And he has a little metal ball inside of him so he's some kind of bell - but none of us (Jon, me, his dad or the lady at the booth) know what he really is. Do you? I'd love to know. Speaking of fishy things, I got these beautiful charms at one of our regular shops recently and I forgot to show you:
I really love that oriental fish look. I've heard them called dolphins too sometimes. These kinda remind me of seahorses. Either way - I love them. I'm gonna make myself some earrings. :) It's not often I get to make something and keep it for myself. And last but not least, we picked up a cabinet for the dining room!
It's not actually old. It's Amish-made from salvaged wood and parts and it has a really neat orange stain. (Which means I get to repaint the kitchen now!) And our new cabinet, paired with this awesome tablecloth:
...which I swiped up recently for a steal on Ebay, make for a really cute dining room!
What do you think? (And better yet, what color would you paint the dining room now?) That about wraps up show and tell for this time, folks. Thanks for stoppin by. I've got another interview in the works so check back later!
