...lover of old things...


I adore spending some of my spare time in antique stores. There are several good ones around our area...they are my frequent haunts.

I went the other day just to unwind for a bit. They relax me. I used to go during the crazy wedding planning phase of life. What is so calming about old things? I'm not sure, but here are some for you gaze upon.

Enjoy!
















I hope you all have a wonderful Wednessday!

PS: Thank you Jhen Stark for featuring me the yesterday here. She is incredibly sweet. Really, go check out her inspiring blog!

What an interesting antique store! I LOVE shopping around and rummaging through all things vintage. I've been eyeing enamelware pieces for quite some time, but have yet to find just the right one. You have such beautiful photos from (I'm guessing) your engagement! I Love that you incorporate God's word so strongly in your life. I know I definitely keep my faith center in my life as well.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Hope to see you again soon ;)
