Antiquing with Melissa

Melissa and I went out to Bellville, Ohio on Saturday to do some antiquing. We didn't have much luck on large items that are on our wishlist but I found a vintage doily to match the smaller one I have at home and this charming fellow on the biggest "tintype" I've seen yet. I'd like to do more research on the method used on these larger "tintypes" because they look painted on. 

I also found a simplistic but beautiful candlestick. These three items shown came under $10 altogether to make this an elegant but frugal vignette.

Afterward, we decided to go to Olive Garden for dinner and catch a showing (finally) of Beauty and the Beast, it was better than expected. Disney remakes never quite come out the way I'd like them to but that was better than the remake of Cinderella and the Maleficent movie (don't get me started on that one), lol.
