Upon our return to the States, Mike and I went and did a little exploring in our home town. We found a cool antique shop, America's Treasures, that hosts some pretty amazing finds. Now, I'm a novice antiquer, but I know when I find something I love to just SNATCH IT UP. Because you might not get another chance!


Among the cool things we got was this awesome wooden art piece that we got for (I kid you not) $16. SIXTEEN DOLLARS. And we also got some other cool treasures like silver goblets and a good nautical shadowbox. All for under $60. If you're out in the West Chicago suburbs, give this place a look-see, and I promise you won't regret it. They have some amazing furniature amid all the nifty tchotchkes. 

Found it lying against a table

It's one of my favorite items I've ever collected, and it fits perfectly in our bedroom. I'm giving myself major high fives for this one, guys. 


Up on our wall!
