Springbreak Wisconsin Trip and Finds

In March Jordan, his mom, and I went to visit his aunt Janet and uncle Ed in Wisconsin. We learned how maple syrup is made and even helped a little. We also visited one of the coolest museums we had ever been to. If you are ever in the area check out the Milwaukee Public Museum and if the traveling exhibit about pirates ever comes to a museum near you GO SEE IT!!! We also spent a lot of time wandering around Milwaukee and the adorable town of Cedarberg and discovered that Wisconsin’s antiquing is even better than Ohio’s. Check out some of our finds including my long awaited breadbox.

We found this vintage advertisement that we want to frame and hang up in our bathroom. My favorite thing about it is “wee swimsuit.”

My breadbox!!!! I had been trying to find one since we bought the buffet table and looking around the shops in Milwaukee we found several! It was a tough choice but I loved the look of this one.
