Antiquing Never Gets Old

There is a magical place that has rows and rows of miniature shops with antiques and beautiful things for sale. One can spend hours looking through the array of furniture and trinkets. This happy place is the Frisco Mercantile, and I had the opportunity to visit the other day. It's where I go to get away for a bit and look at pretty things while the theme song to Wild Kratts playing over and over n my mind slowly fades in the distance. I found some great items, but sadly nothing came home with me. There is always next time, though.

There is no place in my house for this gorgeous piece, but I might be willing to knock out a couple of walls to see it in my home. 

Our master bedroom is shaping up to have a beachy theme to it. I thought this clock would look nice hanging on the wall, but I didn't know if it worked. 

Stuff! That is what every drawer in the house should have as a label. Ha! The yellow side table was one of a pair, and they would look great in a craft room or as bed side tables.

I found the missing cookie jar! My kitchen desperately needs a set of French country canisters, but I can never find a complete set. Maybe I should just buy several of these cookie jars instead. 

Speaking of my kitchen, this gorgeous vase called for me to take it home and sit on my counter top. Wouldn't it look fabulous with fresh flowers in it or as a spoon holder?

Our beach themed master bedroom also needs these round mirrors to go above the bed side tables. They were just more than I wanted to spend. 

My little excursion to the antique mall was just what I needed. Maybe next time, I can take a picture of something I actually buy. 

Happy Antiquing,
