*aDvEnTuReS oF a CoLLeCtOr*

Collecting is an addiction! I love it! I wish I could buy everything!!! Whenever I walk into an antique mall, shop, or a vintage boutique I get alittle giddy and all warm and fuzzy inside! Is that normal? Please don't answer if it's not!!! I get so much inspiration just looking at how everything is displayed. I actually want my home to look like these places! I'm sure my family would move out.... Hey, now that might not be to bad! Hahahaha.. Just kidding.. Anyway, here's a few pictures of my Sunday "window shopping" adventures! I have more pictures and this adventure will continue!!! Enjoy....














































Oh, I have won a blog award from this sweetie~http://http://designsbyck.blogspot.com/ I have to think of 7 blogs to award, so I'm going to have to think about this because I never saw a blog I didn't like!!! So, that's soon to come too...
Check back tomorrow for more of this adventure, and a give~away is coming Friday!!!!
*xoxo*

I think I was born in the wrong era--I love all of the old things too. ;)
Congrats on the award.

Oh my gosh, I get that warm and fuzzy feeling too! I love window shopping but get even more excited when I can find some small treasure ot take home and look at. I found a musical mirror a few weeks ago that I could not walk away from. If you want to see it, look in my archives for Magical Mirror. I've never seen one like it before and it spoke to me. I was going to give it as a gift to someone but I feel too selfish to share it. I'm afraid the recipient would not appreciate it like I do.
Have a lovely Wednesday!

What a great adventure! I love all of that old, antique and vintage stuff! I have so much stuff in storage right now it's not even funny! When my hubby and I combined households 8 years ago, I sold off a bunch of things and I'm still kicking myself over it! LOL! I think I'm addicted too!

Have an Enchanted Week!
Hugs,

Oh dear, I have the same problem! I try to throw things out or to stop collecting but I just can't! I have so much in common with my grandparents who were so much older than other grandparents being 40 and 50 when my mom was born. They made the most amazing things from "junk" and I try to do the samething! I am a good friend of Heather of AudreyEclectic and we both talk about how we we feel like we are attached to another time(but glad we live now!). Thanks for sharing your treasures!

Oh, I hear ya! It is like a kid in a candy shop for me. I hate it when someone is with me, and wants to rush me. I would like each room of my house to be like an antique store vignette.

I'm with the rest of you! Keep on collecting! This looks like a great market-is it all the same place?

Hi Lola, thanks for visiting my blog. Your blog is lovely. I'm not really crazy about antiques though I admit some antique things indeed make nice collectibles. That telephone for instance!

Window shopping is the best but I hope you brought home a little something!
