Antique is so CHIC!

Happy, happy day y’all! The weekend is just in sight. One of my favorite things to do on the weekend (or whenever I can squeeze it in really) is to go antiquing!

Today I’d like to shine a light on how ah-maze-balls antique stores can be! My favorite super local one is High Street Antique Mall, http://highstreetdfw.com. If I were to venture farther out into Dallas, my favorite of all time is hands down Lula B’s, http://lulabsdallas.com. I’ve literally been shopping there since I was nineteen years old. Trust me, that’s a long time! If you’re ever out in the Big D, check these places out! You’ll be happy you did. 🙂

Full disclosure, I am a Mid-Century Modern gal with bohemian flair…IF you had to box me into one category. However, I love other eras and you’ll often see various influences in my crafts and design choices.

Speaking of bohemian flare, check out these GORGEOUS agate rings I found just the other day at my local antique store! These rings are unique, gorgeous and fantastic conversation starters!

Also, I LOVE taking pictures! I want to capture every memory to look back fondly on one day. ❤ This is what sparked my interest in vintage cameras. My collection is quite small right now, but I found these gems at my local antique store.

Despite my love for antique/vintage, I certainly do enjoy keeping up with the newest in technology, especially when it reminds me of the old just like this Kodak Instax Mini!

…and it’s adorable case.

The older cameras will look fabulous with my new MCM furniture! This table is just a peak at the over the moon deal my husband found at a garage sale right around the corner!

I mean seriously, I squealed with delight while doing a little hop-jiggy dance and clapping my hands! 😍 It was just like one of those myths you hear about…just happening upon a garage sale as it’s opening to find MCM furniture in beautiful shape at a knock your socks off, blow your mind price! I mean, those things only happen to other people right?!

Well, keep antiquing, thrifting and garage sale hunting peeps b/c there are diamonds in the rough all around. We just have to be willing to put that extra effort in! I can not wait to show you our amazing MCM finds in a future post.
