Ode to summer vacation, part 1
One of my favorite parts of summer vacation is going to flea markets, yard sales and antique shops. I rarely spend over $20, but I can spend HOURS just looking. The things I do buy are usually of a purely decorative nature. I collect old silver pieces, transferware, chickens and linens. I love looking at old keys, furniture, lighting and glassware too. It's not what a thing is worth to me, or even what condition it's in really (I just bought a vintage Murano glass mirror that is missing most of its trim), it's if I like the looks of it and can at least pretend to have a place for it in my little abode.
