Christmas in Charlottesville!

Tuffy at the Rotunda!

We had a wonderful visit to Charlottesville, VA for the holidays with my family...and I had a few seconds to stop by a couple of my favorite stores!  



First up is one of the flagship Caspari stores located on the Historic Downtown Mall...we were there at 10 am (when the doors opened) the day after Christmas for their annual 50% off sale!


I was having a big case of camera store shyness (meaning I did not take any pictures) so all of these images are off the stores' respective website...


Love this store!!

Next up, Patina Antiques on Ivy Road...


Antiques, vintage and new items all mixed in together...at great price points...my favorite mix!




Finally...a store that I did not get a chance to stop in...but will the next time I am in C-ville in the coming month...


...on 250 West...

...an absolutely beautiful store!  Love how they use color!

Wishing that everyone has had a wonderful holiday...

Hopefully, there will be big things in store for 2012!

Take care,
Caroline

Hey Nashville: This Weekend's Estate Sales!


First up, an Estate Sale in Belle Meade being put on by Bernice Denton Estate sales (click here for details)...  

Just love the above equestrian-inspired upholstered side chairs!



Lots of lamps at this sale...


...a faux bois upholstered headboard...

and...

a vintage bamboo coat rack!


...now off to Franklin...


...to a Michael Taylor Moving Sale...love the above lamp...


This sale seems to have some gorgeous china pieces...and a few (possibly) vintage ice buckets...


...like the above glass version and the below silver one with the deer head handles...



...now over to Brentwood...there is a great estate sale in the Wildwood subdivision...


Love the large vintage mirror over the dresser...and those lamps could be a great find!


There are several vintage mid-century mod pieces...and I think I see an antler-inspired side table lamp...


Love the shape of this sofa (just needs to be re-covered)...and possibly a nice screen above it! 


Happy Shopping!

Merry Christmas!



...just now starting to feel caught up this week!  




We wrapped the packages with scrap fabric...and used the white boxes/bags we do each year...and a few small pink bags sprinkled in there!




Happy Holidays!

The collected look...



...so the estate sales in Nashville this weekend are not that plentiful...therefore, I have decided to do a post on designer Megan Young (click here for her website)...

...her look uses lots of collected pieces that you can be on the look out for at estates sales and either use as is...re-upholster or re-paint and then add a few new items to keep the look current...


So many of Megan's designs in her portfolio look like she used the client's style and collections and represented them so well!







Oh, and the bedrooms she has designed...




...and just had to post this fabulously detailed loveseat...


...simple, yet so detailed!

And...


...the bare stairs...the old stair runner was taken up earlier this week and the new stair runner goes in tomorrow...so Tuffy can finally go up and down the stairs again!

Happy Thursday!
Caroline
