even though we've been pretty broke since i left that terrible job, we have been able to make some small purchases at flea markets/antique stores. i have made a few cute additions to our salt and pepper shaker collection, which is almost exclusively animals:
i wanted some squirrels like this at the salt and pepper shaker museum but they were 38 dollars! these didn't come with the tree they are supposed to hang on but they are cute anyway (and only three dollars!) so i hung them from little nails in the window above my sink. the lady i bought them from was SO NICE. she was like " i know they aren't a complete set but i thought they were so sweet and i hoped someone would love them." mission accomplished.
for some reason almost everything i buy at antique stores is for my kitchen.
a cute old stuffed dog that i fell in love with in a weird junky booth at the flea market.
not an antique, but a cute parasol for future photo shoot. crystal bought one too.
unicorn plates: 25 cents! kitten cards: 1 dollar for eight! yes!i love antique stores/flea markers. fo sho. when we buy a house it will probably be almost completely decorated in antique store finds.
