Hello Monday! Hello August! This week even the weather seems to have taken a turn. Since we aren't tied to the school year like so many people are we still have a bit of summer left even though I know it's going to pass by like a shot. In the meantime I thought I would post the last of the shots I took while coasting around markets in the south a few weeks ago. I always find inspiration and ideas wherever I go whether I end up buying anything or not. I loved these framed Audubon bird prints that had been framed in white that I saw in a vintage mall somewhere along the highway in Arkansas. There were several of these and I wanted them all!
Isn't this just the prettiest embroidered linen runner? It would be gorgeous laid over a crisp white tablecloth for teatime.
Some of you asked if we took a big car or trailer for hauling things back with us, but it just wasn't that sort of a trip for us. But this desk with gorgeous details would have been a big temptation if it had been!
I also found this Art Deco waterfall dresser full of vintage charm.
This was the front door display greeting us in a huge market we visited in Augusta Georgia. I may have actually eyeballed every single item in this place that boasted over 400 vendors!
I think I may have tried to talk myself into taking this garden stand home with me. I have owned and sold one exactly like this before and haven't completely gotten over it yet. So beautiful and decorative.
The styling is a real standout in this gorgeous booth we saw in the other big mall in Arkansas. I could have taken every single piece of the pretty white painted furniture.
Makes me almost want to pick up a paintbrush!
Does the calendar turning make you inspired for something new too?
I hope it's a great new month for you!
