I've always joked that someday my ancestors will take my things to the TV program, Antique Roadshow with high hopes of having some great historic piece. 

I smile, because I know the host will mutter, "Crate and Barrel" and turn them away. 

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it doesn't matter to me whether a piece is old or new, cost $2 or $250.  I love what I love.

I have to say, however, I am having more and more fun antiquing lately.  Remember my collection of Chelsea china?  And my brand new obsession with vintage ornaments.

I am going to an antiques show with my mom this weekend to see if I can find some more pieces.  I think what I was missing all of these years was "the hunt."  When you have something specific you are searching for, it makes antiquing a lot more fun.  What are you on the hunt for?

I hope you found lots of treasures! I have been antiquing this weekend as well. One of my very favorite past times.

I always look for red you, I don't demand "old" but I've begun to realize that I've had a lot of it for a loooong time! = Marilyn

@Marilyn - Ha! Our collections are becoming antiques!

I laughed out loud when I read this! My kids are for ever asking me about things in my house "How old is that Mom?" I just smile and tell them they will find out one day LOL
