What I Bought On Vacation

I realized I never posted what I actually bought on our antiquing day during our trip! I actually bought very little. I attribute this to a few things. I've gotten pickier on what I will buy (since my house is already FULL), I was being cautious with money since we were spending more than usual since we were on vacation, and I'm so used to estate sale prices I don't like to spend more than a few dollars per item. So here is what I did end up buying:

I absolutely LOVE this paint by number. I wish I had bought the matching set with two setters. The colors are just so perfect. I'm not sure where I'm going to hang it yet. I've got it propped up in my craft room for now.

Travis got a few first aid books for his collection. I'm kind of obsessed with that style of poodle ever since I missed out on a condiment set of that style at an estate sale. And apparently I'm really into deer. This isn't the first time that my vintage haul has consisted of mostly deer.

I'm officially collecting dream pet deer now. I have 6 so far. I love these, even if an antler is missing.

and these little deer are so precious! There were a ton of them (well, ten at least) but i contented myself with just two.
So that is it! Can you believe it?


  1. Very sweet little deer.

  2. Such lovely finds, I have a weakness for deer also & find it very hard to leave them behind.

  3. LOVE the collies! So, so cute and it going to look so great the other art that you've shown in the past.

    I have the red deer too (thrifted years ago); in fact, I just realize I am missing a box of vintage Xmas stuff (need to go looking in the attic again).

    Love the little deer and poodle too!

  4. i have a dreampet deer with green antlers! so so cute!

  5. must look up 'dream pet' those deer are lovely x

  6. Oh those deers are darling!

    xoxo mama wolf.

  7. Lovely picks. I am kind of obsessed with deer in general-we even have some that hang out in the wooded areea near our backyard :)

  8. Those tiny deer are the sweetest! I hope to find a paint by numbers one day.

  9. I'm so glad you got that paint by number! The colors are amazing. And yay for dream pets! I have a little collection of them too, but only 2 of them are deer. We had a dream doll in the shop recently - her name was Aloha Alice. I had never heard of dream dolls but she was pretty awesome.

  10. Such sweet finds. The deer are so very cute. x

  11. I collect vintage dream pet deer too but they can command hefty prices sometimes especially during the holiday season. The little ceramic deer are ridiculously adorable, I love their huge eyes. Wish you had bought more of them!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a comment!
