hunting for treasures...

I love hunting for treasures at antique shows and flea markets. That's me and Barb [on the left], my social media guru, at the Country Living Fair in Columbus a few weeks ago. It was raining and a bit chilly but we still had a great time shopping and talking to the vendors. Here's a peek at some of the things I bought. And I actually purchased one of those brooms above to hang in my kitchen—it's simply beautiful yet practical too! 
I love the color in the broom husk and bought some to hang on my porch. They actually make brooms from this. The copper artwork is hanging in my kitchen—a great complement to my copper farm sink. And I can never resist letterpress type blocks! I display these in my studio.
I love milk glass, especially the pieces with a modern, graphic tone such as this vase and it was only $3! I have no idea what this rack was intended for but I have it hanging on a blank wall in the half bath to hold current magazines and a decorative hand towel. It was only $5, a deal too good to pass up!
And of course, I had to purchase gourds to display in my antique wooden bowl and a new runner for the table. 

I'm not a serious antique collector but I love history and I purchase things that speak to me and make me happy. My home is a mixture of antiques, traditional furnishings with some modern pieces thrown in. Nothing matches but somehow it all works well together! 

What are your specials treasures?
