Antique Weekend 2009

Hello! This weekend we're finally off at Antique Weekend and we're beyond excited!!! We all CANNOT wait to get there. It's such a mellow time for us that we really enjoy and after not going in the spring, I'm itching like crazy to get there and do some fun searching. I took ALOT of pics of last fall's trip finds but never did a post on them. I thought I'd do my computer a favor and do one so all of the excess find photos could finally be deleted :). So without further adieu, here they are...

We scored four of these cool vintage chairs that I absolutely adore! My Love remembers sitting in chairs exactly like these at elementary school. They are super sturdy and strong.


These are vintage stainless steel meal trays from an old jail outside of San Antonio...Lovebug loves getting meals and snacks on these.


This is a cool big globe we found for a complete steal and then the little one was just plain adorable. Apparently I like small globes. OH and with these vintage Nancy Drews and a few other copies I found on Etsy/Ebay I was finally able to complete my childhood collection that somehow had missing volumes. I absolutely adore the original Nancy Drew series and hope Lovebug does too someday :). I'd love to re-read them all right now!


I fell in love with this plastic Christmas village set...it's so precious. My Love did a lovely display on our mantle last Christmas with it that we all adored.


Just some other vintage holiday cuties we found for our advent tree and other random display. I do so love vintage Christmas ornaments and decor!


Apparently I really like these little Asian boxes too as it's the second one I've bought.


I adore matryoshka dolls as well and found these two adorable ones. One was a steal and the other one really wasn't. :) Anyhoo, I have fond memories of some our babysitter brought back from Russia when I was little. Lovebug LOVES these too...she plays with the "steal" set.


Oh my goodness, I love this bowl! The colors and design are just beautiful!!! I immediately grabbed it knowing it was mine without even looking at the tag. Thank goodness, it was completely reasonable. :)


We were lucky enough to inherit much of my childhood vintage Fisher Price Little People stuff and Lovebug (and I) LOVE to play with it all. So we're always on the lookout for pieces we don't have and found quite a few last fall! Hopefully there will be more this year too...


Here is a little collection of finds...an adorable painted cross, vintage embroidered fabric, an embroidered Christmas table runner, and some beautiful pillows from Guatemala. I'm a sucker for bright colors and gorgeous embroidery.


Last but not least is this absolutely adorable little plastic vase and vintage postcard. I fell in love with the colors in both and loved the fishing village scene.


Well those were our 2009 fall finds...hopefully we're finding fun stuff right now on our 2010 trip! Be back soon. Have a great weekend.

Love your finds! The prison tray is cool. Although I could total picture myself getting weirded out about the idea that it was used in a prison. ;)

I love globes (and almost anything map-related) for decorating. We have something travel-inspired in almost every room of our house! :)

Tim also recently brought matryoshka dolls home as souvenirs from his service trip to Ukraine.
