Fall just seems like the time to go antiquing, doesn't it?
I absolutely ♥LOVE♥ the Aurora Mills Architectural Salvage!! I had the opportunity to go today, and it is such a fantastic place to find old stuff. If you're hunting for bargains, this isn't the place- but you will find some absolutely gorgeous, hard to find pieces!
Here's some eye candy:
a HUGE stack of locker baskets- all filled with interesting things....
Ceiling tins of all shapes and sizes.
A steamer chair and armoire
I love vintage signs- this one is fantastic. I could just see this hanging in a big, open, great room on the wall....
They had several of these neat perforated galvanized trays. I thought they would look neat as a big centerpiece filled with candles and some mossy rocks. :)
Stacks and stacks of old corbels.
A giant ladder stacked with mantel fronts.
Sigh....so many neat things!
I was able to go with my mom today. We hit some of our old favorites:
Isn't that gnarled bench so cool?! You know I love twiggy stuff :)
And what did I bring home? (my husband is probably reading this and thinking, "say nothing! say NOTHING!!")
This very Rachel Ashwell cup. I couldn't resist. I'm a self proclaimed Anglophile.
Here's the other side of it:
And then I spotted these dishes. Marked $20. With 50% off. Yep. A set of 4 place settings and a matching serving bowl for $10. I just love the design around the edge.
So that was my day. A gorgeous, sunny fall day in Aurora, Oregon, antique shopping with my mamacita.
I was so excited to be featured today on Kristin's blog, My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia!!
My linen wine bag tutorial! Thanks Kristin! :)
(I feel like Sally Field- "you like me! you really, really like me!") LOL!
I'm thankful for days like today- where I can call my mom and just go spend the day together. I know so many of you live far away from parents- I don't take it for granted that we have opportunities to be together.
