There is no denying that I am drawn to pieces that show their age. Something about their worn exteriors and textures allure me into seeing past, present and future every time. I’d rather spend hours wandering through antique stores, flea markets and even junkyards looking for these treasures than any amount of time looking for things that are new or mass produced.
Once the old farmhouse was found, it was time to spend months with great friends and family navigating through some of the most unique shops around…we started in Opelika, AL at Resurrect and Angel’s Antiques, from there we traveled north to Queen of Hearts, Alpharetta, GA and City Antiques, Roswell, GA and everywhere in between including Scotts Antique Market, The Vintage Flea, Newnan, GA, Rockin B, Newnan, GA, Stairway to Heaven, Newnan, GA, Ms. Wendy’s, Senoia, GA, Born Again Antiques, Hogansville, GA and this weekend we are traveling for a visit to Madison/Monroe…if you aren’t an antique junky, you are missing some good times, great finds and memories with some of the neatest people you will ever meet.
I know I promised pictures of the house and I will get those up soon (probably once the beautiful blooms begin to bloom), but here are just a few of the details that make me smile. Yep, I am drawn to anything that show the effects of time, weathered to silver gray, bleached to blonde or tarnished…I just can’t help myself and I am always interested in hearing the story behind all of the distress that their exteriors show.
What can I say…Patina makes me giddy…
I am printing one of these very large and can’t decide if I like vertical or horizontal…let me know which you like BEST!
