Wow, it's been a long time since I posted. Sorry. We went to visit my parents for the past week. I've already posted all about the black hole of internet access within which they live, so I won't get into that again, but that's why I've been MIA. We had a wonderful time on our trip. Miss got to spend lots of time with her Grandma and Grandpa and we got to see my brother and his family. We met my new niece finally, which was tons of fun. I'll post some pics of that part of our trip soon, but this post is about the fabulous treasures I scored while antiquing with Miss and my mom. We went to Hazel, KY, which is a small town at the very southern edge of the state about an hour from where my parents live. I always have the best luck antiquing in Hazel. It's one of my favorite places. Many of my favorite antique finds have come from Hazel, and this trip was no exception. Here's what I scored:

I was looking specifically for a dresser to double as a changing table for Baby Girl's room. I had specific dimensions in mind for the dresser so it would work. Here's what I got for a great price!!
You can see the new color of the walls in Baby Girl's room too, and here's a photo of her crib and some of the fabrics I'll be using.
I have been looking for some more decor for the walls in Miss's room and found these adorable little framed needlepoint pieces. They were a steal at $13 each!
They look great in her room.
My final score is something I've been looking for for a while. Some individuals (my brother) wondered why on earth I would buy this.
My brother has no vision for such things. I've been looking for a birdcage for a while so that I could use the stand for a very specific purpose. Behold:
That is the chandelier that I bought for Miss's room in our old house, where there was no ceiling-mounted light fixture and I hung it from the hook in the ceiling. There is a ceiling fan in Miss's room in our house now, which I didn't want to take down, so I have wanted to get a birdcage stand from which to hang the chandelier so it would work more like a floor lamp. Here it is in place in her room (though with the light turned on you can't see the chandelier very well). I love it!
And here's a photo I just had to post today because I love it. More photos from our trip to come soon!
