WHY DO I COLLECT?

Why do I collect? That's easy... because it's so much fun! Ever since I can remember I have been going to flea markets, antique shops, yard sales, you name it. Wherever I could find some sort of interesting treasure or cool piece of junk! I love driving around in search of new places or revisiting my favorite spots. I come from a family of collectors and have lived amongst antiques and collectibles my whole life. I have a passion for decorating especially with things that I find in my travels or even things found in the trash... which by the way can be some of the best stuff! But for those who share the same passion, I don't have to tell you... you all know what fun it is and how addicting it can be! Here I will share my collections, interesting finds, decorating tips, photos, projects, friends collections and thoughts and whatever else I may find along the way.

SUNDAY at JAKE'S

It was a beautiful and hot Sunday at Jake's Flea Market.
And, it was in full swing! Love it!

Even though there was so much stuff
I only came home with these 2 Haeger planters which I love.
I have the same one in green and
found one in grey a few weeks ago!

Also got these Miller Studio chalkware fruit 
wall plaques in mint condition!

SUNDAY ANTIQUING

What a fun day! It's always great to find
some new places to visit!
Took a ride out to Paradise / Strasburg, PA.
Crackleberry Antique Mall was awesome! So much to see!

Look at all this stuff! Beautifully displayed!

Another good place!

Lots of good junk!

Nice stuff here too... more furniture and primitive... 
not so much vintage and junk... still nice though!

Lamp Update...

Here's an update from my September post.
I originally wanted to hold out for vintage shades for
these pink lamps and found a perfect pair on eBay.
Mint condition, mid-century tall shades in off white and gold.
I was so excited to get them and when they arrived the box
was smashed and they were completely damaged. :-(
So, here we go… "new" shades and newly rewired lamps.
I like! :-)
It was tough to find the right shade for this little lamp too.
I am still searching but for now I found this cute
off white burlap shade. The pattern of the burlap picks
up the pattern on the lamp. All rewired and looking very cute. :-)
