So far this summer, we've been traveling. A lot. This much travel doesn't exactly mesh well with the garage sale-ing I'd like to do. I have a list of big items I'm looking for, but I haven't found, no, taken the opportunity to spend a whole Friday or Saturday morning to look.
While in Elijay, GA AGAIN this weekend (we're spoiled, I know), I slipped into a couple of those dusty antiques shops you find on any small town's square downtown while the girls were waiting with the grands for the 4th of July parade to begin.
I found a couple of things to bring home to our home.
She's hand-painted. She's a mama. I like it.
Turn her around and you can see her baby girl!
I can't decide if I'm going to:
- keep her out year round in the living room
- bring her out for spring and Easter decorating
- keep her out year round in one of the girls' bedrooms
What do you think?
I passed this tray up at first. Then I went back after finding Mama bunny. It was 25% off. It's the beginning of a collection. I like tole trays, but I LOVE the color combination on this one and the punched out detail around the edge.
Curious to see if I got a good deal, I Googled "Nashco Products" which is written on a sticker on the back my "new" tray. I giggled when I found this from the Antiques and Collectibles pages at Country Living! Mine is the same size, but different colors.
I don't know if it's really worth that much, but I'm excited about starting a new collection for our bare walls.
