Best Find of the Day...

June 25, 2012

On Sunday my mom and I went to the antique fair....we had such a great time! I love looking for old stuff for my house.

 LOVED these mason jars. This seller always has a ton. I resisted and didn't buy any....but it was tough!

I thought these signs were adorable. I might have to make the "go ride your bike" or the "love you more" some time soon. 
As I've mentioned before, we are in the process of trying to update and upgrade our kitchen. Part of that process includes finding a safe place to store some of my antique glassware. Wouldn't want baby R breaking anything! SO that leads me to our best find of the day.....let me introduce you to my new buffet cabinet.

I LOVE this cabinet. It is made out of old windows and bead board and is perfect for the space! 

I can't seem to find a recent photo of what was there before......but this one is from a few years ago....

I never intended for this Ikea bookshelf to be in the kitchen...it worked for awhile. But it is by no means baby proof and had to go!

So here is the space now. This summer we will have two shelves built above it to hold more cake plates, milk glass, mason jars, and other vintage stuff. But for now I'm just lovin' my new buffet!

My other favorite find of the day was this library catalog file. It was only a few dollars and so cute! The plan is to fill it will three clear glass mason jars with flowers. LOVE it!

  11. Those Mason jars are lovely, you have far more self control than I do!! Haha. Either we don't have wonderful antique markets like this in our city, or I just haven't found them yet.

    Love the items you always find - especially that buffet cabinet...just perfect!
