Saturday Treasure Hunting

I really like Pier 1. If I’m not careful, our house is going to look just like a Pier 1 store. The thing is, there aren’t a lot of options in my town when it comes to home decor. But from here on out, I’d like to try to find unique items for our house. “Ooh, nice decorative plate…I have the same one in my living room,” is not what I want our guests to say.

So I started my new quest with a trip up and down M-104, hitting up a thrift store and two antique stores. I really hit the jackpot at the Spring Lake Antique Mall.

Here’s what I found:

Saturday Treasure Hunt

1. the green cabinet: the minute I spotted this I had to have it. Why? I have no idea. Something about it is just really charming. The former owners painted it green on the outside and red in the inside. Where it will end up in our house I’m not sure, but I have a feeling it will be one of my favorite peices for years to come.

2. two turqouise blue drawers: my original thought was to use these in our family room to hold the remote controls, but they could really be used anywhere.

3. some enchanted eating: this is probably my most exciting find of the day! my grandma and my mom both have copies of this cookbook that was created by Friends of the West Shore Symphony in the 90’s. It’s no longer in production so it’s hard to find a copy. Everytime I’ve eaten something out of this book it’s delicious. I can’t wait to try a recipe.

Have you been treasure hunting lately? Find anything good?
