This blogworld has opened so many doors to special friendships these last 2 years for me and one of them is dear Layla, that you probably all know and love too, from The Lettered Cottage. If you haven’t visited her yet, you really must. She is talented, sweet, and so genuine and we got to finally meet up in person this week for a day of antiquing and lunch, after chatting online and on the phone these last few months.
She is exactly as I knew she would be and I just love this girl and am cheering her on from the sidelines. Isn’t she gorgeous? She’s as beautiful inside as she is outside. We met up in Montgomery, AL at the Eastbrook Flea market which is very close to her and about and hour and 1/2 from me.
We had lunch next door at a wonderful Thai place and this is Cathy from the area who also joined us for the day. She’s a sweetie too and we all had a great time chatting and browsing. Meeting other bloggers is just like meeting an old friend, truly!
So, come on along for a little antiquing with us. I spotted this really great looking bamboo bakers rack that was so pretty and only $119, a great price I thought. I racked my brain trying to think of where I could put it and came up empty.
I could see this in a big bathroom filled with fluffy towels and containers of bath stuff. Someone needs to buy this! It’s a very unique piece.
Did you know they are making these old-timey gliders again? This set is new but in the old style. So cute!
Layla had spotted this piece already and I think blogged about it, but it’s a really pretty old looking island in that beautiful shade of blue that we all love.
Layla was checking out this iron candleholder, but decided against it. That’s the thing with antiquing. You pick things up and then put them back when something better comes along.
This old mantel caught our eye too.
And this booth made tables out of reclaimed wood that was very stylish.
Another reclaimed wood table all set for spring.
I found a pretty black and white toile chair that I really loved and had to try out.
Can you see why I loved it?
Layla and I both loved this old window made into a coffee table. Isn’t that the neatest piece with the letters on the wood piece inside too?
All I got were 2 white pieces to add to my collection, a planter on the left and a cute rustic mixing bowl on the right, so I only spent $7.
Fun day, great friends! Doesn’t get any better.
