Many years ago I went antiquing with my Aunt almost every weekend. Oh how I miss those days. Shopping on EBay and Etsy are fine and fun, but there's something about going through an antique mall. Antiquing with someone that has the same loves as you do makes the adventure lively and a lot more interesting.
One particular Sunday we were cruising the isles at antique mart Aunt Patty spied this beautiful mirrored shadow box. She said I really needed to buy it. Well, I looked and studied and thought what on earth am I going to do with this? After a "tiny" bit more prodding she convinced me to bring it home.
