It’s been a couple of months since I visited Scott Antiques here in Atlanta, but this month, I ventured out, meeting up with a few blog friends. Here are a few things that I saw along the way. It’s always fun to browse for inspiration at Scott’s. You never know what they will have.
It’s always fun to just walk the aisles at Scott’s to see what’s there. Not that I need a lot, but it’s still fun. There are gals that come over from Alabama every month just to visit Scott’s and one of them said hello.
Vintage inspired rustic stools are all the rage.
These round dining tables were really pretty.
I always love oil paintings and bunnies. I still have some bunny paintings that are not hung on the walls yet, but I’m hoping to use them in my laundry room when it is finished. I love garden inspired art.
More rustic goodies. Designers are all over Scott’s too and I met up with friends Sherry and Lori that day, as well as my Alabama friend, Lucy. It was a fun outing!
More dining tables and chairs.
Always lots of pretty pillows and fabrics at Scott’s.
I’m a sucker for old architectural pieces and these columns were so cool. I didn’t get the price on them, should have just to share with ya’ll.
We loved this booth, very nicely displayed.
OK, here’s a trend alert for ya!
Do you have a whole set of cherry Queen Anne dining room furniture that you are just sick and tired of?? I know, so many people have those sets from the 80’s and 90’s. Here’s a great way to update. Spray paint those Chippendale chairs in a bold color, change out the fabric on the seats and you have a whole new look. I’d recommend painting that cherry table and china cabinet too. You’ll probably never fall in love with those matching sets of cherry that so many people have again, so why not PAINT it!
Loved this oil painting, all the colors really drew me in. I think it was $400+ or so, way more than what I usually spend on art, but wow, was it pretty. Loved those bottles too.
Outside in the tent, I spotted this driftwood deerhead. You never know what you’ll see at Scott’s.
Lots of rustic letters for sale. I think these were $40 for large and $25 for small, not too bad.
How about a globe made into a light fixture. These were cool! DIY alert!
More cool old letters.
Loved this large china cabinet.
And a cute concrete bunny to end the day.
Here’s what I found! There’s one booth that has tables of loose prints (these are actual book plates) all for $10 each and you can find lots of great things to frame. These are a little too small for my existing frames, but I’m hoping I can take them to a photo place and have them enlarged to fit my frames and they will look great when I’m done. I just love these green ferny botanicals!
And these are the existing frames I have in my bedroom. They are really nice with a gold beaded border inside, so I’m planning to just switch out the blue flowers (that I got on Ebay several years ago) for the new green ones for an update. I’ll show you all that when I’m finished with them, of course!
That was my visit to Scott’s this month. If you haven’t been, you’ll have to check it out. Great place to get inspiration!

I like the seashell glass lamp, but the one they’re giving away is fab too! I would put it on my bedside table. Really need a new lamp there, and this would go great in my bedroom!
I wanted to tell you about a problem I have been experiencing on your blog. When I open it from home it seems fine. When I open it from work, it opens to the same post every day, the one where you painted your door green. I try refreshing it, but it won’t. It may be a problem with my computer, but I don’t have that problem with any other blog I read from work. Just wanted to run that by you in case other people have had the same problem! Have a good night!
Nicki, you are not the only one. I’ve heard from about a dozen people about this same thing happening, but I have no idea how to fix it for all of you. It seems to be a handful of people this is happening for. I’d suggest following my Facebook page, because I post a new link over there every morning and that should get you over here on the right page. My tech guy is stumped too!

I emailed Rhoda with the same problem. Last night it occurred to me that I was not having a notice sent to my email daily from your blog. (I was just clicking the blog on my favorites list). So, I signed up for that feature last night. Today I got a notice in my email, clicked it and VOILA…your current post! YAY, problem solved!
I love antiques and have some collection in my house. Planning to visit Scott antiques, it has wonderful collection of oil paintings, rustic stools, dining tables and chairs.
Oh! Those are the stools I need! Seriously! I have GOT to get to Scott’s!
Have not seen a new post since Fe. 19th. Did tech guy figure out what is wrong? I was nervous that something had happened to you or one of your family. Glad it’s just a tech problem, but miss your blog! Shelia
Hi, Sheila, I have been posting regularly and no, my tech guy still doens’t know why some of you can’t see my new posts. Please click Archives on the right sidebar and that should open up all the posts in February or March for you. I’m posting my links every day over on my Facebook page too, so you can always click over from there:

I can’t see your new posts. I live south of Atlanta so love reading about places you visit and have actually later visited some with my friends. When I first didn’t get the new posts and read that you were having tech problems, I signed up as a subscriber. However, that only worked for a few days, being able to click to read the full post. Now it is taking me back to the Feb. 19 post again. I sure hope your tech guy can get the problem corrected as I’m not a big fan of FB and limit the time and info spent there.
Take care. I miss you!
HI, Cathy, I’m so sorry, we don’t know what the problem is. He says it should be fixed, so I don’t know what else to tell you to do. I’m still hearing from a few of you that you can’t get on the current posts. But, most people are doing fine. That is really strange. Are you on Internet Explorer? I’m wondering if the browser is the problem. Please keep trying!
