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?
