30/52 - treasure hunt

Raggedy Ann

 Like her mommy,
Grace has a fondness for things previously owned, that are maybe a little worn and loved
by someone else.
On Sunday we traveled to the Sandwich, Illinois Antique Fair.
I have some great memories of that place because it's where
we found a beautiful old dresser, a large basket for toys,
and a quilt for Grace's baby room before we traveled to China to adopt her
almost 8 years ago.

This time we found some more treasures.
For Grace a Raggedy Ann doll and a vintage doll trunk from around 1950.
I found a red step stool and an old 'peely' painted wicker table,
which were just up my alley!!

It was a fun mom/daughter day and made for some wonderful memories for us.
I love to see what's considered 'vintage.'
Definitely some things from the 1950's to 70's but I think for it to be truly considered an antique
an item has to be at at least a 100 years old.


I'll be taking a break from blogging (we have a vacation coming up), but will be back soon...
hope y'all are having a great Summer!
