Sweet Salvage... Now Showing!

As far as creativity goes, this months Sweet Salvage event was one of the best ever. The theme was "Now Showing" and was filled with wonderful vignettes that captured the feel of some really wonderful movies.
This is a long post so, be prepared!!!

 I suppose it's pretty obvious what this theme was huh???

 There were so many wonderful creative touches to this display... from bikes and furniture flying through the air...
 ...to sweet farmhouse style vignettes.


 There was a wonderful Dorothy style blue and cotton check dress on a mannequin here to, but the image was too blurry, so didn't use it. :(

 One of my personal favorites, was This display from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
(Also one of my favorite movies)

 There were wonderful subway art pieces as well as this cool chair to evoke the feel of England.

 This room was done perfectly to reflect the wintery world of Narnia, complete with Aslan himself!!!






 Bond. James Bond. Seriously... there will always only be Sean Connery for me. :)

 This room was filled with some really wonderful, and masculine pieces.

 And for anyone who was totally jealous of all the awesome apothecary cabinets and card catalog storage pieces that we saw on the Where Bloggers Create tour... these would have been a perfect addition to your studio!


 Next, we have the magic of Practical Magic...

 This table was stunning in person! A perfect combination of zinc and wood.



Isn't she fabulous???

 Looking to do a kitchen or dining room??? This was the place to be!!









 I've never seen the movie "The Secret Garden,"  but I can just use my imagination.  This area was filled with such beautiful floral and garden goodies, I wanted to build a garden room onto my house and fill it up!!



I just love garden things.

 The last room on my little tour reflects the romance of the post Edwardian era and the movie Titanic.

 This dress was gorgeous, and I am told came from the estate of an actual Titanic survivor.

 An extra special treat this month, was having a very dapper gentleman all dressed up in a tux playing the piano for everyone while they shopped.



Well I hope you enjoyed our little journey through Hollywood and some wonderful movies.
There's still time to go see what beauties they have for you!!
Sweet Salvage will be open all weekend!!

Hi Karen,

Love your beautiful shots. I would love to shop there and be able to take it all in. Do they ship? I see a lovely rounded white pitcher that I would love to have.
Enjoy your weekend.

Hi Karen, I'm always excited to see the wonderful items and vignettes at Sweet Salvage. They did such a great job again and I'm trying to absorb every little detail in your great pictures. I'm in love with so many of the vintage treasures. It's probably a good things that I'm soooooo far away from this awesome shop, sigh. Thank you for letting us visit!
Have a happy Sunday!
Hugs,
Julia

They did a beautiful job, Karen. I'm sure I say it every time you post about them, but I would thoroughly enjoy visiting Sweet Salvage! I'm sure I would come away with quite a bit.

Karen Gass said...

What a wonderful place! I'd have given my eye teeth for that apothecary cabinet! And about twelve other things :).

Louise Oakes said...

What a lovely collection of photos. You're right about the set of little drawers, they'd look lovely in my workroom :-)
Have a lovely week.

Vicki Boster said...

Absolutely incredible! I can't even imagine staging all those vignettes- they must have staff whose only job is to create all those beautiful sections. Your photos are to die for--

Congrats on the huge success of your amazing "Where Bloggers Create" event-- we've all had such a glorious time!

Oh Good Golly, I love purpose to things. This is one of the greatest displays I've ever seen.
Thank you Karen for putting my name and site on the list for the party. That meant a lot to me. I don't want to loose touch. I need to relearn how to down load my camera and make a post. I will, I hope it can be this year.

Now that I have my "decorator" hat on, I spied several things I would love to have. Like the red soda fountain stools...the tufted white mid-century chairs... quite a few of the bits and pieces to tuck in this corner or that. How lucky to have this in your area!

Leann said...
