I just got back home after spending two weeks with my mom...I love love love the time I got to spend with her and my family, but there is something to be said for being home and running our little house. I crave the structure that our routine brings...its not that I'm not flexible, but I'm much more efficient when I have reliable schedule!

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.
