treasures untroved...Timeline Antiques

One of my favorite ways to spend a Saturday is by estate sale shopping and antiquing. Don't get me wrong, I love shiny new things, but there is something to say about finding beauty in antiques. I love to imagine where things have been, the story they have to tell...On this particular Saturday, we began at Oyster Bar and Grill to make sure we were energized for a long day of treasure hunting.
Oyster Bar delivered. I had a greesy cheeseburger (big enough to split or take 1/2 home for later), Ty got oysters, and we all had a margarita,of course :) Now we are ready for the hunt at Timeline Antiques!
So many treasures untroved...random, beautiful, odd, dusty treasures.
For example: why is that doll head on a lamp stand? creeper-creep!
...expensive japanese screens and nutcrackers...
...old comic books and pilot's helmets...
They're singin' in the rain, just singin' in the rain!
There is something for everyone! I am cracking up looking through these pictures. These guys were the best treasure hunters ever- EVER! We spent all afternoon in one shop!

happy hunting :)

ps- I got my sequined red New Years dress from here too!

Don't forget to tell your loyal readers: I bought the JFK painting and it's hanging in my living room. TRUE STORY.

I can confirm said truth to this story.

Yeah, it is really happening. That picture is just hanging on his wall. We're all supposed to pretend it's supposed to be there I guess.

It IS supposed to be there, Tison! Why must you fight the truth of life!
