Word - Antique

The word for this week is antique.

Its adjective meaning - belonging to antiquity; old-fashioned; of a bygone style or period.

I have been looking for vintage pieces to go into my art lately and stumbled into Old Green Shutters on Main Street in Crown Point, Indiana. Now those of you who know me are probably looking at the screen with your mouths hanging open (gently shut them please :D) but really, I just had to go in. The front window display, the very cool name and my hunt for game pieces made me do it. Once inside I was taken back by the stunningly coordinated displays, the little charming vignettes, the fantastic groupings of antiquities. Door hardware, art and sewing supplies, game pieces, photographs, luggage of all sizes, they have it all here. I have been into antique stores before and I can honestly say, I will visit this one again because it appealed to my creative muse, my artistic sense, my orderly mind - oh yeah, if the shoppes were all like this, I might even become an antique shopper.


  1. Yay! I love stores like this - right up my alley!

  2. A new venture every time you go into places like this. I have been trying to incorporate old pieces with items I am making for our annual boutique with Mom, my sister, and my girls.
