Just a few pics...

Take care,

White walls and coffee tables!

...just read a wonderful post on decorating with white walls (click here for the post on Mrs. Blandings).

I love my white walls!!

Also...see the coffee table above...that will be in my booth in October!  I have it...one of my favorite finds...ever!

Take care,

Caroline



Love some vintage faux bamboo...


...shelving units!!  

I saw this (click here for listing) on the Nashville Craigslist last night...and the posting is still there this morning (meaning it may still be available).  

It is a faux bamboo shelving unit...and I just think it is perfect!  The description says it may need to be repainted-- but looks pretty good in the picture.   

If I were going to get it for my booth...I would have it professionally re-painted...but may be good enough just like it is- if you are interested in it.

...and for $75.00...you can't get a shelving unit at Target for much less!!

I do not need it...but just wanted to pass it on!


Take care,

Caroline




Mirror...mirror


...love this mirror leaning up against the wall!


...with a gilded wooden frame!


...love the combination of white furniture with gilded mirrors, gilded coffee tables and anything gilded!  A gorgeous combination!

...at the Franklin Antique Mall Booth!

...oh, those shelves (on the left side of the booth) will be full of pillows very soon!!

Happy Tuesday!

A few more...


...pictures of the Gas Lamp booth after going by there today...placed the gorgeous capiz shell tray on the table...and placed two of the blue & white bowls and milk glass bottles on it...


...just a view of the entire table-top!  

Oh....I spied these...


...at another booth at Gas Lamp...and I think they are $34.00...a wonderful price for some
alabaster bookends!!!


Take care,

Caroline


A little more colorful!


...I re-arranged and added a few things at the Gas Lamp Booth...finally!

The painting and ikat pillows really brightened the space up...


...this old mirror is great...one of my favorite finds!

A customer today was thinking about it as a mirror for her daughter's bathroom...I think that is a perfect idea and a great touch for a bathroom!


...more ikat pillows will be coming in to both the Franklin and Gas Lamp booths...as soon as more pillow inserts arrive!


...lots of small items!


...vintage milk glass looks perfect with a colorful background!


...just a side view!


Happy Monday!

Very colorful!


Oh...I know lots of color all at once (and a little thrown together)!!  But fun color and patterns can do a lot for a rooms decor and are amazing...together or separate...in small or large doses!

Planning to take the painting and a pair of the aqua Ikat pillows to Gas Lamp tomorrow and then the rest of the pillows to Gas Lamp and Franklin once the pillow inserts come in.

Happy Friday!

Several small shell pieces have sold...


...these shells have sold...


...all of the oyster shell votive holders have sold...


...the shell votive holders have sold in the picture above!



...the ironstone pitcher and shell votive holder have sold in this picture...


Several small items have sold in the past several days...working on getting the mirrors and new pillows into the booths very soon!



Happy Friday!!

Take care,

Oh, bikes!


...so a bike and a new laptop were my birthday/anniversary gifts from my wonderful husband!


I absolutely adore vintage bikes...but don't mind a new one that looks vintage at all!


I can't wait to take some leisurely bike rides around the neighborhood...and maybe event to tennis practice!


Take care,

Caroline




So yesterday I posted about some...


...Fabrics that I just love!

I have already used the fun yellow print to re-upholster this vintage metal stool! 


It has been adding some wonderful color to the Gas Lamp Booth!

...several items have sold in this picture, but it is the best one of the stool in the Gas Lamp booth...

...I have some of the fabric patterns ready to go to have pillows made out of them...




and to upholster chairs like this one...



...can't wait!


Happy Wednesday!

It is the weekend!


Yay!

So here are a few new pics of the Franklin Booth...I have added another metal tray table...to replace the vintage white trunk that sold this past week...


...an ironstone pitcher...and some other small items...


....the bags...


....and a final pic...


...of the Franklin Antique Mall booth...

Gas Lamp Antiques is having their Fall Fiesta Event today from 10 am- 6 pm...I kind of feel bad that I have not fully re-stocked/re-decorated that booth since several items sold in it this past week...but there are some great items in there and I am working on some more pillows...a few fabulous mirrors...and have some fun metal end tables that are almost ready to make it in there!


Take care,

Caroline
