In my holiday travels

Two of my favorite gifts: a yarn bowl from my friend Jane, and a serval cat footprint from my niece (who volunteers with a big cat rescue in NC.)

Some new stuff: a hand-embroidered table runner, a few Christmas ornaments, and “The Emperor’s New Groove” (which makes me laugh out loud every time I watch it.)

Some goodies from my favorite antique mall in State College, PA: an Art Deco pin with coral, an old olive drab letter tray, a turquoise melamine ring dish, two aluminum ladles and a cat cookie cutter from a child’s kitchen set, a sherry glass and blue spongeware dish for my mom, a rectangular biscuit cutter, and a wonderful chalkware rooster for my friend/landlady who cat-sat for us while I was gone.

These two pictures are my take from “The Street of Shops” in Lewisburg, PA. The upstairs of this mall is a mix of antiques and new retail, but the basement is where I go. It’s an awesome place to poke into corners, find little treasures, and get some awesome bargains. I found this vintage tapestry tote (the handle hardware makes it), tole tray, satin blanket binding, aluminum garland (which I had to hold onto at checkout because it was being eyed up by another customer), a beautiful old bubbly glass salt shaker, and some vintage linen pieces.

I love shopping for and giving a new life to vintage stuff!
