While I was at my mom's we did some antiquing in Longview and we hit up the Portland Antique show!
I spotted several things that really needed to come home with me...but with a limited budget...and limited car space I settled for taking pictures instead.
I saw lots of beautiful cabinets...
some new...some vintage....
Isn't the one with the metal siding as a backer just awesome!! I totally would take any of these...I think the hubby better watch out...ideas are bouncing around in my head!
There were also several decor type items...
I meant to go back for this set of Corelle bowls, but I forgot them...totally kicking myself for that one! They are just a bit different than any of the three sets I currently own. I happen to think you can never have too many sets of mixing bowls.
I really wanted the old scale, but when I realized that it didn't have its original paint I couldn't justify paying the price they were asking...and I am kinda picky about leaving the original finishes on some things. I like the character it provides.
I was gaga over this giant cow sign...it was ONLY $750.00...a total steal, right? haha! I have big plans to recreate it somehow!
I was also was swooning over this native American textile...but sadly it was just out of my budget.
What I did come home with...
...a funky and borderline tacky cowboy art piece for $15. It will fit perfect in Ever's baby room!
...a vintage wire egg basket for $5
...and a Corelle Butterfly Pattern gravy boat and plate for $16- a piece I was missing from my collection!
I love being inspired by antique and vintage items.
