The antique store itself was bursting at the seams with gorgeous remnants from the past - I was like a kid in a candy store! Antique patio furniture (I fell in love with a small white bistro table and two chairs the colour of cotton candy, from the '50s), books and TIME magazines (the homemaker ads from the '20s-'60s make me laugh out loud...very Anne Taintor!), jewellery, china, glass....you name it, they had it. I also wanted a beautiful venetian tray, but unfortunately it had a very large crack through the glass...I was heartbroken to have to turn away from it.
So, of course, when I came across the baby shoe mold, I just HAD to have it. It will make the perfect paper weight, especially during those breezy summer days when mum and I hull the craft supplies outside and create on the patio!
