When I was little I hated going to Antique stores with my mom and Nana...
it felt like hours that we'd walk around and look at "old junk"....me and my sister would dread the word "antique" anything being said!
ha ha ha...little did I know that over the years...I would become a huge vintage "anything" lover...scouring antique stores for vintage clocks and goodie at where else but ANTIQUE STORES!
ha ha ha ha
We headed out to buy Blake a dresser..he doesn't have one...and antique ones are cuter, made better, and are way cheaper than the new ones. This dresser was only $100
, the new one I was looking at was like twice that and made out of particle board!
he loves the movie CARS...I surprised him with "CARS wall decal borders" that I got at Target to make his new room feel extra special! When I was reading him his bedtime story (A Very Hungy Caterpillar)...he said, "I yuv my room mama!"....I love them so much, this morning as they both crawled in my bed, then Blakey was crawling in the ground with his feet up in the air not touching the ground..he said, "Look I'm crawling like a baby, with my feet in the sky!".....I couldn't help but feels tears watering my eyes...as I am so blessed to have these little angels in my life...to love them and guide their little hearts!
We received a wonderful compliment from the ANTIQUE store owner: she said that Alani and Blake were the most wonderful kids she's had in her store! She gave the each a ginger cookie and a sticker!
They liked her cat named Snickers!
END RESULT: new red dresser and alani got a little princess figurine that the booth owner said she would give us a discount because Alani loved it so much!
Kids said, "look at all this stuff!"..Fav Blaker Saying: "Mama come over "ere" and yook at this!".....
old dusty trearsures....Kan-tique ha ha ah
