My Antique Finds and makeover Spice Rack

I had a great time with mom and also visiting the 2 antiques stores, while I wish I had more money I did pick up a few things.

1. A beautiful firkin, small sized but very nice and the patina is perfect.

2. A Vintage soda crate with 12 compartments, that I made over into my own personal spice rack. I did nothing to the crate itself, but I did use some 8 oz. square mason jars, put spices in them, wrapped a tag around the top with red/beige check homespun and I love how it turned out.

3. An adorable bunny, that I am sure will be out all year round.

4. 2 magazines. 1 is Early American Life 2/11 and the other is Country Accents 2/98 (I know a bit older but looks like it has some great articles and awesome pictures inside.)

That was my day and I am happy with everything I purchased.

Today is antique finding day....

Yep, it's Saturday and what a better way to spend this wonderful, sunny, warm day, then going out to the antique mall with my mom with the hopes of bringing home some wonderful goodies? Nothing, I tell ya.... well except winning the lottery, lol.

I just might hit the primitive store while I am there to see what new goodies the lady has out, bummer for me since everything lately has been for Easter (bunnies, chicks, etc..) now dont get me wrong, I love all the handmade holiday stuff BUT I am the type of person who likes to keep my goods out all year long with just some minor re-arranging throughout the year.

What's your type of decorating style? Do you leave your goods out all year or do you decorate for each season/holiday?

Let me know, leave me a comment and you enjoy this wonderful day.
