Check out that picture of me and my fabulous dad! He came up this weekend so we could go antiquing together. Big Brothers/Big Sisters hosts a huge antique sale every April, and this was the big weekend. Dad and I love to go and hunt for treasures together; he's my favorite antiquing partner. We collect completely different things, but that's okay; at least we don't have to compete against each other when we see something we like. : ) Dad likes to find special treasures in hiding in glass cases. He owns a huge collection of page turners. He also likes anything sterling silver or pewter.
I thought this little push helicopter was adorable:
But not as cute as the owl on this can of nutmeg.
Dad ended up with a couple of treasures, including something he picked out for Father's Day from John, the kids, and I. I know it's early, but I'd rather have him choose something he likes than have to pick something out on my own in June. I ended up spending a grand total of $6 on myself for these beauties which I am going to add to my collection:
I love old ornaments, don't you?
I'm off to make some homemade pizza for dinner!
