Red Queens Attic Antiques" in Rosenberg, Texas. Its quiet, the people are very helpful, the prices are outstanding and I always find something I must have. Now, I admit it, my tastes in antiques are a little strange.
For instance, I HAD to have this very cool vintage rusty metal lunchbox. Doesn't it look like something a construction worker brought to work every day for 30 years! Why do I like it? Because it is rusty. Because it has stories to tell. Because I'm pretty weird.
Well, I digress...I just had to have the lunchbox. It is magnetic so maybe it can hold all of my recipes inside and I can put the one I'm using to the outside set with a magnet. Or it may find itself the part of some Christmas decoration. Look for it in a blog in the future!
I also found a very cute tea cup set to add to my growing Christmas vintage set. I host a Christmas tea every year and I want to serve all my guests in different cups. Cute huh? I almost have enough for all my guests.
At another little antique store in Richmond called "Antiques Around the Corner" I found an old cookbook. It is the same one that my mom owned when I was growing up. Just opening it up and looking at the pictures brought back a flood of memories. I also found an old street sign for the boys faux brick wall. It says "20 MPH" and is bright orange. After the shop owner assured me it was legal for me to purchase, I snatched it up. The boys think it is pretty cool!
