Yesterday, my mom and I went Antiquing. It was great fun. There are some really great Anitique shops in Buffalo. Many were closed, the hours are thurs-sunday... nice hours.. window peeking warrants another trip.
We did go into Annie’s Attic. A shop that has been there for many years.. I have found some great treasures at Annie’s Attic and this adventure did not disappoint either.
I chose to focus on vintage paper... patterns, needlework magazines, home magazines, etc. in the 20’s-60’s is my chosen era, although, she did share with me a magazine from 1886 that is truly fascinating! We picked that up too.

There were also treasures that I left behind. Pieces that inspired me and I knew, I would not do anything with other than reference it. So I photographed it. There are vintage dresses, and some actual peices of applique that were very nice.
The goodies I have will provide fascinating blog posts for many months to come, as we hit a jackpot today and the inspiration will continue to flow. Stay tuned for details of the intriguing articles on color and decorating from the 1930’s!
