Decorating with Vintage Bamboo

Do you ever see something that just catches your eye and those are the things that you notice when you're out and about browsing?  That's the way it is with me and vintage bamboo.  I just love the stuff and seem to gravitate towards it when I'm out antiquing and looking around. The British Colonial decorating phase had it's heyday several years ago and I liked it back then. One of the elements of … [Read more...]

Shopping Marburger Farm

Marburger Farms was our last stop on the Round Top shopping trip and it's the most exclusive shopping you'll find (I think!) during this antiques market.  I figured it would be more high-end vendors and that was true for the most part.  The only thing I bought at Marburger was some jewelry that I'll share with you, but it was fun to browse. The other girls found plenty there though I didn't get … [Read more...]

Shopping Round Top, TX

I'm back from two back to back trips and trying to get all of them documented and shared, so today it's Round Top, TX shopping day!  As I mentioned, this group of 11 girls stayed at the Rancho Pillow which is about 10 minutes out of town from Warrenton and Round Top, the antiques market community that is so huge this time of year.  It's a wonderful event to experience, even if it is overwhelming … [Read more...]

Thrifty under $50 Blog Hop!

This is something that I've been doing for a long, long time, but I haven't done much of that lately because of space … [Read more...]

Called House for Hope, Carbine is building a beautiful modern farmhouse and tastemakers, bloggers, and designers are going to decorate the whole house.  I've seen the work of Carbine in the … [Read more...]

Browsing at Scott Antiques

I've shared several times about shopping at Scott Antiques over the years of blogging, but we were down there last weekend, browsing and looking around at all the fun and unique things offered at this once a month market in Atlanta.  I've been going for years and 2 of my favorite pieces of furniture came from here.  I'm not looking for anything in particular at the moment, but it's still fun to … [Read more...]

Decorating with Vintage Furniture

If you've been reading my blog for long, you know that I dearly love to shop secondhand for vintage and older pieces of furniture.  There has been a huge surge in that market in the last 10 years, but I have been shopping that way for much longer than that.  When I first set up house and started shopping for furniture, I had heard about antiques, but always thought they were way out of my price … [Read more...]
