Antique store finds

Over the summer, I went antiquing to Florence Colorado with some of my home girls and found some fun things for Halloween.  These included a very cool skull and a desk lamp.

This summer I received some unique gifts from friends and family.  Thanks Terri, Chris and Beth for such awesome stuff.

Measure spoons from Beth

Taxidermy from Chris

 Candle holder from Terri

Funny skeleton bobble head from Terri.  Made in Japan back in the 1960's, his jaw bobbles when he's touched.

Made the Roadshow!

Last summer my sister and I attended the Antiques Roadshow in Omaha Nebraska. To my surprise, I was chosen for a filmed appraisal.  When the episodes came out in April 2016, I watched the show but could not find myself.  Today, it occurred to me to search another way and when I googled the appraisers name, John Colasacco, I actually came up with my appraisal! So if you have ever wondered what Lady M looks like out of costume, here I am -a pretty dull middle class housewife.
