The Hubs, Bebe, and I took a one tank trip to my In-Laws for a dinner date. Then, as we all would have it, we did a little antiquing in some neighboring little towns.
I love small towns. From the quaint feel to the fantastic history of early America, I'm right at home.
My In-Laws have had the antique bug for decades. They love 'em as much as the Hubs and I. I always learn something new when I'm with them because they know a lot more about some of the earlier antiques than I do. I welcome their insight!
The first stop brought us to this sleepy little town. It was a hot Sunday afternoon and it seemed just right to be sitting on a bench sipping a lemonade but we realized it's not even summer yet!
We made our way in to this shop.
Look how the owner used a vintage suitcase to display old photos. A perfect pairing.
And here... old bottles....
And here.... my favorite kind of books! Ahhhh, be still my heart.
I also noticed the owner of the shop had lots of art work for sale. Every area of the walls was covered with a piece of local art or by an amateur artist. Some of them were pretty good!
And now for this week's features:
Last week Rita of Panopoly took us on an old home tour during her time at a homemade barn style wedding. Everything was amazing! Thank you, Rita!
and Anne's Attic was having fun making her own signs. I "believe" they look great!
And Sheryl at Red Tin Inn shared this awesome Singer sewing machine. I am not an avid sewer but I love these old machines. Something about them just speaks to the inner woman in me. Kind of like how men feel about power tools!
We went in a couple more shops to satisfy our curious antique souls... It was a great time and I'll show you later on in the week what we found. Thanks so much for coming along with us!
