Newest Additions

Dave and I both agree that our favorite pieces of are home are all collected at our entryway

It may not look like much, but here you'll find my record player & beloved record collection, a print Dave bought from The Louvre, a vase I made a few years back, our collection of antique books and of course, our guinea pigs!

Although we really love the items on this shelf, we weren't thrilled with how it looked. So, we recently went antiquing and found some great additions to our favorite vignette.

I spotted this old vile holder in an attic-type antique book store. We had been searching for a small vase of sorts, and this little guy looked perfect for the job.

Plus, it's super unique and kind of quirky - just like us!

Dave also found these two treasures: 

After hours (literally) of looking through old books, Dave finally settled on these two. On the left is a copy of C.S. Lewis' The Screwtape Letters (2nd Edition!) and on the right, a small collection of Hebrew Tales. (Basically stories of the Old Testament).

They look (and feel) right at home in our lovely collection of all things old and/or meaning.

We had a blast discovering our new city, finding treasures in old antique shops, and of course ending the evening with an IKEA stop for that little lamp you see. 

I encourage you to go out and find some treasures and explore your local shops. You may be amazed at what you can find!
