I'm so glad when Daddy is home.

I've been taking advantage of Kev being home by leaving the house during Aspen's nap. It is so nice to go to the grocery store without worrying about boring her to death. Or having her scream bloody murder for something I'm not going to buy.

Sometimes I get a little crazy and visit antique/thrift stores without a toddler in tow. WOO!! This glassware caught my attention in a basement on 25th street and it was hard to resist them. I wanted just one, but then I felt badly breaking up this beautiful set. So I had to walk away. Aren't they great though?!

If this cute owl hadn't still been full of old perfume, I totally would have bought it. Actually, I left the candy dishes (below) to be price-checked and maybe if they're inexpensive, I'll just go ahead and get the stinky owl anyway. It was labled as an Avon perfume jar, and seriously, it's ancient. And adorable.

The dishes weren't labled, but I'm in love with them. I want them on my dresser, holding jewelry. Currently, my rings are being stored in an old face lotion jar. Classy! If these dishes aren't a million dollars I'm totally going back for them.

Let's keep our fingers crossed that they're inexpensive enough that I can at least purchase one. Pretty please.

  1. I HAVE THOSE GLASSES!!!! I, too, found them at a random antique shop while browsing with my mother-in-law before Christmas last year. I said loudly, "Oh gosh, that pitcher set is so pretty!" A few minutes later, she told my husband to get me out of the store and distract me somewhere else. I assumed she was buying me the glassware set. Well, Christmas came and went and... NO GLASSES. I was peeved.

    Six months later, I'm strolling through one of my favorite summer flea markets and there's the same set, just a little dirtier than the original. I told the lady selling them, "I will pay whatever you ask," (classic haggler's mistake) and took them home that day. I mean, it was meant to be, right?!

    Short story long, you can come over and share them anytime! They're perfect for lemonade on a summer day.
