Green Acres at Sweet Salvage

 Once again I would like to take you with me to Sweet Salvage's monthly sale. This month... Green Acres! There was a wonderful mix of rustic farmhouse and elegant bling!!

 I missed these roles of burlap when I was there. How is that possible??? I wasn't in shopper mode, I was photographer mode!! Darn! I wish I would have picked one of those up. I really like the stripes!


 The layering of furniture and vignettes was wonderful as always. I swear I wish I had a second home I could decorate! I just don't have room for any more pieces of furniture!


The predominant color scheme is one of my favs! Brown, Green and White!!!

 They even have been carrying some cool new and vintage clothing. I fell in love with this eternity scarf. It was soft and cozy and could be worn long or wrapped twice as shown. I liked it so much, when Katie brought a second one in another color for a price check, I bought that one too!!!
I almost took home the brown crocheted one, but I tried to practice a little restraint!! LOL!


This did not come home with me, but there is something about it, I really liked.

I'm a sucker for ivy, empty frames and suitcases...

and funky wall art! I also adore those little wire baskets on the ladder.

Cute huh??
I really liked this black and white wall art piece.

And here is a shot for those of you who like a little color in your life!

I really had to restrain myself from bringing home another kitchen scale. I wanted to ironstone pitchers too! I would love to have a whole collection of ironstone in a great open cabinet. Again... I need another house!!!

 I wish these photos could give you an accurate image of what it's like to walk into this place. My heart pounds faster and I get excited every month! The thrill of the hunt is just too much fun!!!

What a fun post. I smiled big with your comment of another house! I have said that for a LONG time. At my age, small town location and the cost of utilities, I have opted not to consider my folks 3 story Victorian home. OH would I love to do something fun with that. They are now in Assisted Living and want to sell, but the 3 of us have kinda put it on the back burner.
Thanks for sharing the lovely photos. It's fun to dream.

Hi Karen
So much crammed in that space - kinda looks like the antique barn I haunt for treasures.

Loving the oversized Images Karen! And seeing all of the Vignettes in Pristine Condition before the Shoppers descended upon them! *Winks* Hope you 'scored' some Fab Found Treasures? I know I did... even though we came a bit late on Opening Day.

I am so inspired by your photos! I could shop for hours. A little tip - you can get that burlap ribbon at Hobby Lobby in the floral section where all the ribbon is. I have bought a few rolls of it already!

Thistle Cove Farm said...

The houses of antiques provide lots of inspired wandering but I've reached "that age" when my household could, very well, be an antique shop. Everything has a story and all is beloved.

karen natiw said...

Where is this treasure trove located? Beautiful eye candy! I would get dizzy looking at all the crazy vignetts! Love love love!
