Latest Finds

Monday, June 10, 2013

Hello out there! It's been a while since I've posted anything new so how about I bring you up to speed on several fronts?

Work-wise, I've been blessed with some incredible opportunities lately for the most amazing clients!  These are all enthusiastic, happy folks who are giving me free reign to do what I love to do and yet they also have great ideas and strong opinions about where we're headed.  It makes this little journey we're on together really fun and completely fulfilling.  I hope to be able to share some photos with all of you as these projects progress. 

In other news, I've been scouring the area in search decorating gold - those fantastic and unique vintage pieces that bring so much character and personality to a space.  Want to see what  I found?

We're starting big.  This stellar mid-century dresser is a craigslist find. It's solid walnut and is in impeccable condition. 

So I paid a little more than I normally like to pay, but I feel like I got my money's worth and then some.  I'd love to keep it but sadly I have no place for it.  And there are groceries to pay for.

I just picked up this wicker storage chest.  It's very well made and sturdy, and it could be another one of those things I bought because I really liked the hardware.

Are you seeing the fun-house reflection of my shoe and leg in the hardware?  Gross.

And lots of blue and white.  I always feel lucky when I find a pair of lamps.  Pretty details, too!

I may use this umbrella stand here at The Dollhouse in the foyer. Goodness knows it would come in handy with the buckets of rain we've been getting.  Really, I want to keep each and every one of these things and it makes me a little sad to part with the things I sell.

I'm guessing that this brass octagonal mirror is from the late 70's to early 80's. It weighs a ton and all the edges are beveled. 

And so there you have it.  Well, most of it.  We've also made some baby steps on the renovations here at my Dollhouse.  But that's a whole separate post.  Those plywood sub-floors that are in my living room/dining room? Their days are numbered.

I'd love to hear about what's new with you!  Leave me a comment or shoot me an email!
