Findings at the Antique Show!

I had a fabulous time this past Saturday wandering about the antique show searching for that perfect treasure...and yes I found many!

I love rummaging through piles of antique fabrics, trays of antique buttons & trims. Skimming thru shelves of old books & old paper, filing through boxes of old photos of people from long ago. All the while, just admiring the antique and vintage treasures of the past.

I always visit my favorite vendors whom come back year after year and setup in the same spot! And this year was no most favorite item I found this year was a handmade sterling silver ring made with an antique typewriter key.

It matches perfectly with my antique typewriter key necklace I purchased 2 years ago from the same woman!

Not only are they beautiful to wear but they also are great conversational pieces. Especially to the generation that has NO CLUE what a typewriter is!

I love all the old memories it brings back from those typing classes we took in high school.......(haha) I know some of you remember those days! :)

Well.....not quite what my class was like .... a bit before my time....but you get the idea !
