My "Treasures"

I've been thinking a lot lately about "treasures". Why is it that I love everything vintage, old, shabby, get the idea. Where did this love of vintage come from? I have loved this style for as long as I remember being conscience of having a "style".

My parents don't really love the vintage way, so where does it come from? My parents always bought new furniture, I don't remember going to thrift stores as a child, so why does the idea of spending a day at flea markets, consignment shops and thrift stores make my heart go all fluttery? Where does this come from?

I'd love to hear your thoughts about this............

Had a great Fleaology on Saturday. Thanks to all my friends and customers who came and visited and found their own treasures.

I have restocked my booth at Treasures Antique Mall in Springville. (Utah that is.) What??? Are you a vintage loving Utahan (is that what we are?) and have never been there?

You need to go. They have over 70 dealers in two warehouses and lots of great TREASURES! I am not only a vendor, but an avid shopper there. Come visit.

We leave in about 10 days for our big NYC trip. It will be the dotter's first trip to the Big Apple. We are getting excited (and broke! as we buy all the tickets.....) we also get to visit Grandpa Reed and Grandma Karen in Virginia and can't wait to see them!

Hope your summer is going SWELL.

My little booth at Treasures.

Brought in a few birthday hats. Don't you just love it on a wedding dress?

I just wish I could figure out my style. ??? A big trip to NYC?!? That's so fun. Would you know where to get my hands on an old cupboard - I want to use it to make a desk for tanner. I saw it On a blog but she had access to them so it made it super cost effective.

A quote on treasure from Pres Eyring:
The word treasure has been used in scripture to describe something a person loves which has enduring value and which enlightens.

i am the same way...i love all things old but didn't get that from my parents. i am sentimental and i wonder if it is that character trait?? maybe. i didn't know you sold at treasures...i go in there every once in awhile. i'll be making a trip down there soon for some of that trim!!!!
