I've seen these spritzer bottles all over lately, and this one was just loverly:
You like a bird cage, eh? Reheeeaally like them? Check this one out:
One shop had these huge letters from an old store sign:
It was one of my favorites. I'm a sucker for any scrolly and old combo.
My routine is to case the whole joint, find a few items I love, then go back to find my favorites. (If they are not there anymore, I cry a little and then move on -- my mantra is if I was meant to have it, it will be there for me when I get back.)
So what did I get? Squeal!! I love them! Check out the milkman bottles and carrier I found for $26:
I had to get a big metal "S" from the old sign -- the front was missing, but I have a few ideas in mind:
I soooo wish the front looked like the back:
I love how chunky it is! And it was only $5!
And finally, you've seen them all over blogland and I couldn't resist these:
I don't even know if I like the whole fork and spoon thing coming back. I mean, I like it in all the other houses I've seen on blogs, but I don't know if they are me. Aren't they adorable though? I figured if anything, I'll sell them on Ebay. :)
Hope you enjoyed the tour! If you ever get a chance, get over to Midland. (And call me if you do!) You won't regret it!
Have a GREAT Fourth of July!! I'll be back later this weekend to either share our basement transformation or the start of the deck transformation -- we'll see what I get done first. ;)
