Antiquing Haul by Julia Walck

Cross stitched Pheasant

Optimistic pins 

Rainbow mug and stir sticks

Went antiquing yesterday and I did good. Like REAL GOOD. 

Not pictured are two yellow smiley face planters (one with a smiley face plate to go underneath), three additional stir sticks, a Jurassic Park pin (for Jack), and a Christmas holly berry glass juice pitcher. Oh and I didn't take a photo of the full TV tray, but you can see a close-up of the pattern below. I got it for $3! They're usually around $10-$15 and I couldn't not get it...right? Even though I already have this exact one... Well matching pairs I guess.

I've talked about Antique Row before, and how amazing it is... but sadly it's not as great as it used to be. I think a lot of the businesses just couldn't keep up and many places have closed. 

However, Persnickety Antiquity and Pomona Antique Mart are still there and are still great. 

On my way home, I passed by this giant rooster. I'll always pull over for a good sign, so I stopped and snapped a polaroid real quick šŸ“

Flea Market Finds Organized Neatly by Julia Walck

Recently for work, we were given a budget of around $250 and went to the Melrose Trading Post to find props for an upcoming photoshoot. Here's some of what we came back with. 

My personal favorite might be that NEHI beverages bottle. That type? Those colors?! The whole shebang. Man, retro design you are my one true love. 

PS, my neighbors probably think I'm crazy standing on benches taking photos of things I've intricately laid out all the time. You know, because the good light in our apartment has to be directly in front of our neighbor's window.
