One morning my friend Katie and I decided to go antiquing or garage saling, I'm really not sure what we were doing, lol. But we came across an antique mall that was closing its doors and EVERYTHING in the store was on sale. Yikes! So I found this beauty at 40% off costing me only $16.00!!!
I quickly scoped the whole place when I first got there, then back through a second time slower. I went straight to this piece first and took it to the counter right away. Oh, I was so very excited to get it home! It is in excellent shape with no cracks, chips, or hairlines anywhere.
Yes, it is my first big crock! Even though I have been into antiques since I was in high school (a few years ago, haha), crocks have never been cheap around here. I walk by it every single day and always have to glance its way. I love it so.
I just wanted to show a full shot of my tall vintage ladder that I bought this summer. It is about an inch short of being 8 feet. I didn't know if it would fit in my home, but I didn't care it was coming home anyway! I love how it has hooks at the top so I can hang a couple of aprons and potholder from it. It's so tall that it's hard to get a picture of the whole thing, lol.
Sorry about the dark pictures. I've changed it since I took this picture but here are a couple of my vintage linens. I love the red & white piece in the middle which shows 3 men in the kitchen with aprons on, cooking up a storm... too funny.
Haven't taken my fall decorating pictures yet. Oh my, how I have enjoyed looking at all of yours! So much inspiration and pieces to drool over, lol. Thank you all so much for sharing, I love this time of year the most... even more than Christmas!
I do have a picture of a little wreath that I bought last year after the holidays. I don't ever buy wreaths, picks, swags, candle rings, or garland that have really fake leaves or pieces. I strive for a more natural look. Being a "berry" person, I couldn't pass up this little berry wreath but those leaves were just screaming at me.
Much better now... don't you think?
Football Homecoming tonight! My son plays on the JV team but gets to suit up for Varsity. They cancelled our bonfire that we always have the night before the big game because we received (some very much needed) rain (thank you Lord!). But the parade is still on. We received our Homecoming shirts yesterday so we are ready! YAY! Go Catoosa Indians! Saturday is a day filled with scrapbooking with one of my best friends. Gonna be a great weekend. Hope yours is grand~
Happy 1st day of fall!! My very favorite time of the year! I love this day more than my own birthday and Christmas! If we weren't running around with Homecoming activities, we would be out apple pickin'. Enjoy it to the fullest~
