My mom and I went out shopping today, but I have to say I was pretty blurry-eyed after shopping all day yesterday with Kriste.  You would think that shopping for antiques would be something I wouldn't grow weary of, but I've learned that I need it in doses or everything starts to blend into the cacophony of stuff lining the shelves and crowding booths.  I did find some good things today, though,  (read more …)

Hello, all!  I did have a chance to pick favorites tonight.  Yay!  I really needed the chill time on the couch after packing look books all day.  My back is letting me know.  Anyway, the black pieces tonight were catching my eye, so I decided to feature these black beauties... This buffet by Danielle of Antique Recreation is simple, classic and pretty.  It was a little wild when she bought  (read more …)

I didn't pick favorites tonight and I have a good reason.  It was my youngest son's 6th birthday.  We were eating pizza, Batman cake and ice cream and I was the piece finder for his new Lego set.  I then cuddled with him.  He started crying as he was brushing his teeth and I asked him what was wrong.  Between sobs and big, sad tears he shared, "I'm so sad that my birthday is almost over!"  So, of  (read more …)

Good evening, all!  I thought yesterday was Thursday and it was freaking me out.  I had my week planned out and I suddenly found myself way behind and totally in the weeds.  I didn't know how I was going to get it all done.  Jeff finally informed me that it was only Wednesday.  Whew!  All was right with the world and I wasn't as over-committed as I thought I was. So, now that today is Thursday,  (read more …)

Good evening all.  Again, there were some great makeover this week!  I think the furniture makeovers are in full swing this time of year, so there are a lot of great things to choose from.  Here are my favorites from last week's shindig. I think this butler's pantry by Emily of Eleven Gables is such an amazing, luxurious space.  I love the idea of making a utilitarian space pretty and  (read more …)

I found some really great features for you tonight.  There were a lot of great ones, but these three were no-brainers for me to feature.  Enjoy the party! This pair of "map cabinets" actually started life as modern laminate side tables.  I had to do a double-take, because it was hard to believe how they started and where they ended up.  I love Kristine's work on the Painted Hive and her  (read more …)

I had a lot of conference calls, administrative duties, e-mailing, etc. to take care of this week, which is necessary, but it sometimes bogs me down.  So, today I took some time to work in my basement on furniture.  I'll show the pieces I was working on in a few days, but I spent the bulk of my time on the phonograph I picked up in a furniture lot I bought for Lucketts.  The phonograph was sort of  (read more …)

I'm so sorry, again, for not picking favorites last week.  I got sidetracked, and just didn't get it done.  I'm sure you all know what that's like!  Anyway, I had a wonderful time looking through the furniture that was shared last week.  There was some really good stuff...too many to feature all of my favorites, really.  Here are the three I settled on highlighting... I am so in love with  (read more …)
