If you follow me on Instagram than you'll have noticed some of my finds while antique shopping the last couple of months. I love antique shopping and it's been fun to pick up items to decorate our home. Our local antique store has been having a going out of business sale the last month. As much as I hate to see a local shop close it's doors, I've loved picking up items that I've had my eye on for quite some time.
The first time I walked in this particular shop last fall I saw this old trunk and immediately wanted it. The wood top, dark sides with the leather handles. The first week in February Thomas and I stopped in and I noticed it was half off. There was no way I could pass it up. This beauty came home with me that day. I'm not sure my husband shares the same love I have for it, but it makes a great coffee table in our living room.
That same trip Thomas went crazy for the many Mickey Mouse items he found and the softy that I am let him bring home three of his finds. A folding chair, a naked Mickey doll I need to make some pants for, and a view-master (that he thinks are spy glasses).
Here they are being featured on a layout about that particular afternoon.
I remembered that view-master reel in my stash of Basic Grey embellishments and knew it would be perfect for this layout. I filled the reel with small images of Mickey Mouse that I found online and printed to place behind. The rest is a fun mishmash of frames, labels, and stickers.
