An Antique Shopper's Dream: Cedar Chest Antique Mall

If you're like me, there are few things that thrill me as much as the idea of spending a HOT, Texas summer's day (or a part of a day) getting "lost in time" wandering through an 18,000 square foot AIR CONDITIONED antique mall. The Cedar Chest Antique Mall in McGregor, Texas is the place to do just that! I decided to write this post due to the tremendous interest that one of my recent posts generated. In that post, I focused on the idea of spending the day visiting the Cedar

Vintage Kitchen Vibes

When our mother passed away, she left Sister and I with a house that was literally brimming over with wonderful, old treasures. While her home was a treasure trove and an antiques lover's paradise, her true love was kitchen items.
