So, what do I do in my spare time while I’m not blogging? I collect vintage items. Correction: I stuff every corner of my home with some kind of neat-o item that reflects an earlier era. We love it. Right now, our cat’s favorite sleeping post is a handmade doll bed that James found, discarded.

It’s simply too sweet for words.

In an effort to cut down on clutter feed my thrift shopping habit, we have opened up a booth in an antique mall close to our home. Just walking into the place makes me smile, as it is loaded with Fostoria glass, wooden ironing boards, spaghetti lamps and mid-century modern furnishings. Here is a sampling of our booth.
