Antique shopping for our exciting addition


The Christie Antique Show was on this weekend, I was shopping for a very important room in the house….a nursery! We our expecting our 1st baby in September!! We are so excited to meet him and I’m loving every minute of being pregnant.

Shopping for a nursery started back in 2010 when my mom bought me this dresser that could be used for our nursery one day so it was appropriate to get a few other things for the nursery from my favourite Antique Show! Here are some things I considered buying for the little guy but decided against it…

Just when I think my day couldn’t be going any better, my friend, Michelle and I ran into Tommy Smythe and Marilyn Denis! I was very excited to see Tommy at the show because Tommy and Sarah are the reason why I started going to the show! They have bought many things from Christie’s over the years. I didn’t get to talk to him much as he was on the move but he did say that this will be the only picture of him with a hot dog, Tommy’s sense of humour always amazes me;)

I also met up with Jen from Rambling Renovators and a few other bloggers as Jen suggested to meet up if you were going to the show. Since I’m pretty new to the blogging world, it was great to meet Jen and Pam from Cherish Toronto in person! I also met Amy and Kisha, I can’t wait to check out their blogs!

Here are my finds

Ask Swami napkin holder? haha I loved this, I didn’t buy it but I could see it being on American Restoration. I loved the booth with all of these signs, maybe when we own a cottage I can buy one;)
