Out and About

Just some things I spotted out and about while shopping for clients. This first piece is actually 4 REALLY old corbels attached on the back to make an almost cross-like architectural piece. It was love at first sight. Unfortunately, it did not work for my client and it is not in my budget. However, one day I am going to replicate this.....What is it with animal heads? My FRIEND must be contagious...
The head and these horses are from Z Gallerie. I have wanted these for a WHILE, but now in this green color I want one even more. Once again, I can't explain it...
Saw these paintings in an antique store, very similiar to my true love Hyche
These barley twist tables are classic and multi-functional...

Something about these chairs and the next one grabbed me. Maybe it was the GREAT price, or my love of tufting. Definitely in need of a good reupholster.
The suitcases made me smile because the initials on them are "RAT". Not sure how I feel about the light fixture.

LOVE! You should be mine. I could be so organized!
I have a thing for "Cane" furniture, don't know why...
Once again, is it the price? The tufting? I can't explain, I just heard it call my name as I walked by.
Narrow tables like this one are hard to find but so useful.
Random: Love these sheers from West Elm and the table from Target you have seen on here before, but now it is on clearance. How many times a day must I remind myself that clearance/sale is still not free!

So many good deals, so little funds...

Love the goodies to be found at Hanna! Maybe if I can learn to reupholster we can practice together and our homes will be full of the cutest tufted chairs ever!

ha! yes it's spreading. You pointed out to me that it is "fake" heads that are cool. My conscious state had not realized that yet. now I know.

What great finds they all are- did any of them come home with you??

I have to remind myself all the time that clearance does not mean find a reason to take me home...often it does though, I swear its not my fault :)

LOVE that leather chair. I have a space in my living room where it would work perfectly. Too bad I'm not closer.
