New found obsession: Antiquing.
I have a few blogs that I stalk on a daily basis, one of them being http://goodbonesgreatpieces.com/blog/. The past 3 recent posts on this blog have been pictures and details from an antique "show" this mother/daughter duo attended in Brimfield, MA. After reading the posts about the show, I was inspired to check some local antique malls in my small college town.
Lately, I've been looking for something to start collecting...something that can carry on into adulthood. From their May 18th post, I fell in love with Fenton Hobnail Milk Glass. It comes in different shapes, sizes, and colors. I like white the best, but found a few other colors I liked also.
I am proud to say that I purchased the first piece of my collection today! At the Gateway Antique Mall on our town square. Here's a picture of it:

A few other pieces that I really loved were:

(Fenton Hobnail Milk Glass--really LOVED the purple one in the back, right corner!)

Candlewick Glass Bowls

Ruffled Marigold Carnival Bowl (similar to pieces in the goodbonesgreatpieces May 21st post)

It's safe to say, antiquing will become a regular happening in my life!
