If you’re a regular here at Boomdeeadda, you’ve probably gathered that I kind of dig old stuff. I love to wander around an Antique Mall and just browse.
Sometimes I’m hunting for something specific, like pretty and useful vintage things for the craft room.
I don’t always find something (Mr B !), but I have fun looking. One day, after roaming around for an hour or so, all I brought home was this sweet little dish. It perfectly matches my craft room, don’t you think? Pink on the inside and aqua on the underside , I just had to snap it up. Really, where can you buy an hour of fun for just $4.00.
Sometimes, I stumble upon the most wonderful things ever. Remember when I found my vintage Sunbeam? That was a good day.
I thought I’d dash through the Antique Mall today to give Mr B some ideas for Christmas. Sounds presumptuous, but honest he asked. Want to see what’s on Boomdee’s Christmas list?
I think this old flower frog would be a great pen holder in the craft room. Are you rolling your eyes now? I know, I know, more books? I just fancy the titles on these pink vintage lovelies. There’s ‘No Stone Unturned’ and ‘Turn On The Heat’. Gee, I wonder if it’s about baking? HA!
This cute glass domed Christmas scene needs the Boomdee touch but it’s so me. There were lots of ornaments to pick from. I actually have that skiing pink snowman, but a matching one would be swell. OK truth, they’re ALL the bomb.
Hey, look!!! Does that yellow cabinet look familiar? I just bought a white one from the same vendor a few weeks ago and then re-organized my whole craft room around it. Good times, good times. I think they’re a pair, don’t you? Now that tea trolley has been calling my name forever. I can see it in a cream colour, in the craft room…no, bedroom….maybe living room as a bar. Come on now Santa, throw a girl a bone.
(It’s a match!)
If Santa still has room in his sleigh, there’s this teeny tiny bottle brush tree that needs a home too. “What’s that Santa?” “Yes, I know I have lots already”. “Thank you Santa, I couldn’t agree more, there’s always room for one more”.
PS. See anything you like? I’ll put a good word in for you with Santa (snicker).
