Heroes Con went by as well and I had an amazing time in Charlotte. Again, thank you so very very much to Shelton, Rico, Andy and the rest of the crew for letting me be a part of it! That's another show that I will be putting on the "Must attend every year from now on" list.

We love going to antique stores and there were a couple in town about 15 min. from the cottage. We were practically rushed out of the first one because they were closing at 5 and we entered at quarter till. Nothing quite remarkable in that store besides the large selection of antique farm equipment which Emily was drooling over. The second shop had it's door wide open but the sign said it was also open until 5, at which point it was 5:08. We inquired within and the gentleman replied "I'm still here so I guess I'm still open" and bid us to take our time. It was at this store we came across the coolest thing we'd ever seen at a rinky dink little antique store. And the best part was the price tag said $200. We decided to sleep on it. The next day it was the first thing we talked about and we both decided it was a MUST HAVE! So after going to the beach in East Tawas we drove straight to the shop and made the purchase. Anyway, here it is...
Pretty cool huh?! We don't have a name yet but I'll let you know when we do. This is our first BIG taxidermy purchase and we are loving it! We just need a really good place to put it.
So here's one more image, a graduation gift. Hopefully he doesn't follow my blog... :p More fun with microns. I had another pic I was going to put up that would have helped with the whole "tentacles and skulls" label but I was told I'd have to wait to post that. So you'll be able to see a new T-shirt design probably after San Diego. Which will probably be my next post. heh
