WI Thrifting

One of my favorite things to do when I'm in a new town is checking out the local thrift stops and antique shops.  When I was in Milwaukee a month and a half ago, I visited two really large antique malls.  One was three stories high and it took nearly two hours to see it all.  Both Jesse and I found some real gems there, like this MCM pendent light.  It's cream with raised gold lines.  I haven't found a spot for it yet, but I'd really like to work it into my home office somehow.

I found this guy at one of the other antique malls we stopped at.  He was a steal of a deal at $9!  I've always wanted one, not just because I adore owls, but also because I have limited vintage fall/Halloween decor.  I kinda think I will miss Mr. Owl after Thanksgiving when I start to switch out the fall stuff for my Christmas decorations.  Maybe he will have to find a permanent home elsewhere...
