Hello, my name is Karen... and I am a shopoholic. At least when it comes to yummy vintage goodness!!! (okay well if I'm really being honest with myself it probably extends a little farther than that, be won't discuss that issue right now.
But I just can't help myself! For so many years I lamented about not having any great places like this, and now that it's here I can't stay away.
Hubby should just be happy I'm not looking to replace my sofa any time soon!!!
I loved this built out frame. It's so nice and deep in there. Darn. As I look at it now.....I should have brought this home with me!!!
This month's theme was Rough & Refined and indeed it was!
One of my addictions....
...and they were every where!!!
Can't I pleeeease have them all?????
There were several great old coffee and grain sacks, cool industrial drawers, architectural salvage and even a gold head if you fancy that sort of thing!!!
I love this old fan. My hubby and I brought one home from his parent's house in Pa. last fall and I'm going refurbish it and use it this summer.
Okay, come on... this chair is to die for!!!
I loved all the old silver pieces mixed in with all the industrial. Very cool.
Tricia Samsal from Vintage Bliss was there with some of her very cool and very lovely jewelry.
I love the chalk drawn chandelier!! What a cute n' cool idea!!
Loved the hanging scale. Of course.. again... I was stupid and passed it up. It could be hanging in my kitchen right now!!! What was I thinking????
There were several of these beauties about too. And look at that price!!! Holy Cow!!! Thankfully I have one of my own, or I would have come home with this too!!
Love this sign! I am trying to find great pieces like this for our home. I think it will bring a little funkiness and a little masculinity into our rather feminine decor. Besides, hubby is a total car guy so I hope it helps bring a little of his personality to the decor too. I did pass on this one, but I did bring home something else.... which you will see in a minute. :)
I totally thought of my friend Cindy from Lilly's Lace when I saw her, although Cindy's obsession tends to be just the head. :) I should have brought her home with me too. She would have looked awesome in my studio. Oh well....
I'm loving those light fixtures!!!!
This cart was TDF!!! If I had a bigger laundry room it would have become my new hamper!!
Remember all those tutorials on Pinterest on how to turn a light bulb into a vase???
Okay, here is the reveal.... My little stash of treasures. I know, I know... I talk big and then this is all bring home??? Hey, I'm a poor working girl remember?? LOL! It's not a huge haul but I love it all. The cut glass salt and pepper shakers will get filled with pretty glitter for my studio, the role of burlap ribbon will be used in a fabric journal or something, the scale... well lets just say it will not be alone in my house. I couldn't resist the "Good Dog" flash cards and those numbers were just cool. I'll find something to do with them. And of course the awesome "one way" sign. You will die when you here how much I paid for that... Are you ready???? $29.00!!!!
I hope you enjoyed living vicariously through me for a little while!! LOL!! It was so hard to edit down the photos, but if I didn't you would have been here until Tuesday! I'll get that sign up and show where it it's going soon! Have an absolutely fabulous day my friends!!!
