I'm humming it right now

New Year's means more than just resolutions and Twilight Zone marathons at my house. It also means that the lottery opens up for Antique Roadshow Tickets!!!

Every year it's marked on my calendar and every New Year's Eve while Dick Clark is on and for the next week I'm humming that familiar Roadshow theme song.....heck I'm doing it right now as I type.   The hubs and I went two years ago when they came to Atlantic City, stood in line for hours waiting to have our things appraised but really you go just to take in and oggle at everyone elses stuff and of course try and get lucky with a Keno brother.....I think it's the novelty of them being antique appraising twins is what does it for me really.

 Tickets are free, but  given out randomly. The closest city to us this year is Pittsburgh so we are shooting for that one.

In other news,  after just over two years and two Mike's Hard Lemonades later I am proud to declare The Church of Vintage on Etsy FINALLY has a banner....well sort of, the name is missing from it (knew I should have had third bottle of Mike's), but it is better than nothing. Sort of gives the feel of looking through a window or maybe more like the slats of a mini blind, still sort of pretty. If anyone asks though I meant it to look that way;)


  1. oooh antiques roadshow, one of my favourites, could watch it for hours, good luck! and I like your banner it's ethereal...or something that means something like that...

  2. Wooo, good luck! That's basically my dream in life to go on that show- what will you bring?

  3. I have an oil painting from 1840 Philadelphia I'll take. I also have a piece I took the last time that almost stumped them but ultimately felt the end appraisal was still a bit dubious so I'll bring it again this year and weed out any contradictions. Thanks for asking!
