Since...

...this re-finished vintage desk and...

...the 2 new saffron lamps sold today...

I am now on the hunt for some vintage furniture and new lamps...which leads me to the following that I am thinking about ordering...

...same shape as the saffron lamps that just sold...but in green...and I saw these in person and the green is a bit deeper than this-- not too deep, but not this light either...it is a gorgeous green!



...loved this tree trunk base!

...and these are very simple & updated but still classic!


...and I am debating about this one...



Take care,

Caroline

...I also added these drum pendant lights...




...and these 2 vintage glass candle holders!


...I love the scallop-like details!

Happy weekend!

Take care,
Caroline

Just got back from...

a day-trip to Atlanta (which has left me exhausted from all the driving)....
...but came back to find that one of my all-time favorite pieces (this settee) found a new home today!

I am really going to miss this one!

Take care,
Caroline

Just found this for my dining room!


...now it does look a little on the feminine side...

...but it brought in so many of our colors-- and gave a more "aged" appearance that I think mixes well with my tendency to use furniture that has a clean finish!


...it is a little over-sized....so it has a bit of "flair"..

...and was 50% off at Clearing House Consignments on Page Road (off of Harding Pike)...


...so I bought it and now my husband and I will take down the current chandelier...

...and hang this one!

...I think the 50% off sale (on everything without an orange dot) goes thru this Saturday at Clearing House Consignments...they will be closed this upcoming week to bring in all their Spring consignments!

Yesterday, was a big day at my little store....the vintage bamboo nesting tables sold...as did 2 of the Flair books by Joe Nye...the final 2 oyster votive holders...and the 2 vintage owl figurines (which were too cute!).

Have a wonderful weekend!

Caroline

Love this...


...Amy Butler clutch...such "spring-y" colors!  It has been much warmer recently around Nashville-- and so I am all about color and especially green right now.

Also...those cute vintage owl figurines and capiz shell vases are in my little store too!

...a very big thank you for all the nice comments on the desk post yesterday- it is so nice to hear that you like an item in my store!

Take care,
Caroline

All of the pulls/knobs are on it now...

Professionally re-finished vintage desk in a semi-gloss white: $245.00
...even though, this picture does not show all of them!

...just a peek from the hallway!

Happy Monday!
