Treasure Hunting

Yesterday was a holiday and my mom, my sister and I went on a treasure hunt. There’s a farm close to my sister’s house where the owner collects and buys all sorts of goodies. Antiques, not-so-antiques, windows, bottles, books and teacups. If you’re looking for it, chances are, he’s got it. This weekend was the last time he was open until spring. However, he did say that if we decided we wanted something, we could go back and see him.

I really wasn’t sure what to expect. My mom and my sister had been there before, but not me. There were two huge barns filled top to bottom with treasures! We looked around for a couple of hours and could have stayed even longer, but it was getting a little chilly.

See anything you like? I love how there are helmets mixed in with the tables and chairs.

I spy a pretty blue teacup.

Oohh, teapots!

Getting directions on how to navigate the second barn.

Can I interest you in a purple dresser? Or maybe some snowshoes?

085

May I offer you a chair?

087

See that one teacup that looks like it might be blue under the dust? One of my treasures! No extra charge for dirt.

I wasn’t looking for books this time, but these were fantastic. I should have bought that pink one because, hello, pink book!

This is a duck cookie jar. How awesome is that?! I can’t believe I didn’t buy this. I should have. Look at her eyes. Plus, she’s wearing an apron. I feel like she would never judge me for eating all the cookies. I have the perfect spot for her too. This would make a fantastic Christmas gift (hint hint mom).

Need a milk pail?

Or maybe a milk bottle?

My mom bought one of these old crockery jars for her new kitchen. Old and new are perfect together.

Need to do some 70’s style entertaining? (I wasn’t actually around in the 70’s, so I’m not sure if this type of glass is from then or not, that’s just the image that comes to mind.)

If I’m ever in the market for a new license plate, I know just where to go.

My mom got a few things for her kitchen, and my sister bought two pieces of furniture with tons of character. I found amazing treasures! A new (to me) teapot and four beautiful vintage teacups. I couldn’t be happier! (Well, maybe a little happier, if I had the duck cookie jar.)

My teapot found a home on a shelf above my stove. I just put the shelf up a few days ago, and I was happy to add this rosebud teapot. I might need another shelf, because several of my teapots are still in the cupoard.

There’s an ugly (but useful) fan on the wall. It was interfering with my teapot vibe, so I covered it up with my Cat Stevens Tea for the Tillerman album. How perfect, right?

And of course, my teacups!!

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to drink some tea from a fancy teacup!

      I don’t really have room for them either, I just loved them too much to leave them! I’ trying to figure out a way to display my teapots and teacups with my books, because they are perfect together!
