A lovely find

Yesterday, while fluffing my space at Monticello, I fell in love with this sweet desk.... I kept thinking I wished I had a use for it, but couldn't come up with one... So I went about my business and then it hit me! I had an old, unattractive computer desk in our great room, and this would be perfect for it!!! Yes, we would lose some drawer space, but we only gather junk in the drawers anyway!! I am just so in love with in!!! I just love how the pink paint in the legs was spared but the rest was stripped of the paint...

Here are some other lovely finds I came across recently...

I also wanted to let you know that, sadly, I have left Stars due to underwhelming sales... As for Monticello, Lisa and I have shared a large space for the past couple of years and we are both moving to smaller spaces. Lisa will move to her space in May and I will wait for the next available booth (hopefully only a few months!!), so my absence from Monticello will only be temporary, and you will see me back there soon!! 


  1. I LOVE each and every one of your lovely finds you shared with us today!

  2. Oh i love your desk with its chippy pink legs!
    So happy you found a place in your home for her,i also love your finds especially the story book!

  9. Love all your pretty finds! (o:
    I'm glad you're not pulling out of Monticellos. I knew Lisa was getting a smaller space but I didn't know what you were doing.
    Glad you found a reason to buy your pretty desk!

  10. Everything in your pictures is so lovely, too bad I'm on a different continent so can't just pop over to your booth to take a closer look. :) So, so cute, love the work done on the desk. Parabens.

  11. Godmorning, Sweden here....

    I must tell you, that I love your virtual & image blog!! Amazing mix of pic's & so much inspiration!

  12. So sad to hear about your "downsizing". It seems to be happening quite a bit. Your finds are amazing, as usual!

  13. You do have the eye for delicate, warn beauty. Each of the items you have shared is a dear, little work of art.

    Your new great room computer desk takes the prize!



  14. I am new to your blog and so happy to have found it! I'm thoroughly enjoying going through some of your older posts!


  15. Isabel, that desk is the sweetest! Great finds you have there! I am always amazed with all of the perfectly lovely things that you find. You have exceptional taste, my friend! I have a birdcage just like yours, only in black.

    I could write on forever, but just know that I love your posts!!

    I had to leave the shop, too, because of the economy. Hard times for all, but hopefully things will pick up again.


  16. Good finds, my friend! I saw that desk and pondered it for a moment...glad it ended up in your home ;)

    Can't wait for Friday! What can I bring?
