Out and About...



Recently, I went out and about to some of my favorite places in and around Nashville...I spotted the bird book-ends above at Second Chance Consignments on Trousdale Lane in Nashville...



...and this antique settee also at Second Chance...the coloring is much better than my iphone picture of it...just put some fabulous throw pillows on this settee and it would be so nice in a room! 


Loved this table at one of my favorite "junk" stores!


...and the lamp base above.


...and this column entry table...even had a nice Greek key design on the columns.


Love this lamp...it was just not in good enough wiring condition for me to buy it...but the shade was great too...which is rare to find!


I really like smaller round tables like the above...so versatile in a room or by a bed...just needs some paint!


...and I love milk glass...these could be used to hold items in a bathroom or on your desk!



I actually bought several small items (like the above figurine) for the little store...

and...


two of these fabulous X benches...they just need some re-upholstering and they would be a classic update for any room!

When I arrived home today for lunch...boxes from my favorite lamp supplier greeted me at my door!  

And since I need to keep talking about it and researching...I have gone around (more officially) looking at different places to lease to have an actual brick and mortar store...which has been really exciting!

Happy Monday!

Wow! A brick and mortar store! That's fantastic news. I hope it all works out for you. (Would you quit your day job?)
I would officially be very jealous if you pulled this off. ;)

So, I always love to see what you find interesting. The glass top table is pure awesome, as are the x benches!
