wow. i’m seriously speechless.
for some reason my little blog was ‘flooded’ with people this weekend. i honestly can’t thank you enough for all your amazing comments … a big welcome to all my new followers. you all really made my weekend. seriously. thank you.
if you hadn’t realized yet, one of my favorite hobbies is antiquing! luckily there are couple great shops within twenty minutes of my house. which, i suppose could be a bad thing. but then again who needs to eat when when you have a new antique to play with. am i right!?
anyway, on saturday i was lucky enough to score two amazing finds. i’ve learned that when i go antiquing it’s best that i don’t go looking for something specific. that way i’m open for things to find me. sounds crazy. but it works.
my first find was this antique ladder from a men’s store some where in new york state.
love it! my favorite part is how it narrows towards the top. i knew i had to have it for my gift shoppe. it measured eleven feet, so i had to cut off about a foot and a half to get it to fit. but it’s perfect.
and so well built too. i have some new linens coming in soon so i think i’ll use it to display them. but who knows.
love the exposed nails and weathered wood.
and then i found another globe! which was perfect because i have a super cool project in mind for it. i was busy working on it last night. i hope to share the finished piece tomorrow or wednesday at the latest.
have you found any great things antiquing or thrifting lately? i love a good story!
that’s it for today. kind of a busy monday around here.
thanks again to everyone. you guys are seriously the best!
