Wicked Antique Hunting

One of the most exciting parts of spring is the hunt for new treasures!  It is this time when I best venture out alone taking time to find some awesome additions to both my shop and my home.

Recently we have decided to replace some of our porch furniture with more unique and meaningful pieces of comfortable seating. 

This awesome rocking chair is from the late 1800s -early 1900's.  It was for a while in the Lougheed House in Calgary, Alberta according to the seller. 

My Beautiful new Rocking Chair

We then searched for my husband's new front porch rocking chair and found this gem from the early 1900's.  We are still not sure if it will be in our house or on the porch! 

I love all vintage books!  This one I couldn't leave at the thrift shop....I thought I would sell it in my shop but I don't think I can.

Finally I found some awesome vintage Wordsearch Tiles!
These will soon be in my shop...they are approximately 1 inch round and make an awesome pendant!

So Begins the Treasure hunting season!
