With no kids.
It was kind of like a Christmas present in itself!
If ever you're visiting Springfield, MO and have at least an hour and a half to wander you should head to Relic's on Battlefield near Kansas Expwy. It's the biggest, well-curated flea market and antique mall in town and I always, always know I'll find at least two or three really special things that I can afford to bring home. I try not to go very often so that it feels new every time.
I'm not sure which purchase I got the most excited about this time. I love picking up pieces that are not only pretty but also useful such as the tape dispenser, tins, apron, and glasses. The tin barn has found a home with Ruby, the deer will be set aside for next Christmas (diy snow globes!), and the book will be saved for the kids. It was one of my favorite reads as a horse crazy girl so finding such a beautiful copy was a thrill. Any other Misty of Chincoteague fans out there?
Today I'm going to tackle finally taking down our Christmas tree and putting away all of the decorations. I'm hoping they don't stay on the table as long as they did when I was trying to put them up. Also, I'm excited to let you know that my next joint e-course with Elsie is almost ready to unveil! Who wants to start an art journal?
See what I found the week before in Vintage Findings: Part One.
