Objets trouvés (and an impromptu photo shoot...)

A few weeks back, I was thrilled to find this beauty at a local estate sale.... I am even considering trying to reupholster it myself (even though the velvet is not that bad, considering the age of the loveseat...!!) I love the petite size, and even though I am not sure where I would put it, I don't think I want to part with it, at least not for now!





This weekend, at Ruffles & Rust, I managed to find a few sweet treasures...




This pink toolbox had my name written all over it....




This chair is so sweet, I can picture it with a ruffly seat pillow...







... And my sweet friend Joy, practically gave this to me... It will store loose papers and templates. Love it!!!!




Well...

Since I was snapping pictures, and my kids happened to be home...

I called them out for an impromptu photo shoot...

Okay... So I had to bribe my son with a trip to the Dollar Store...

But it was worth it...

There was a lot of goofing off...

But I was able to get some good pictures!!!

And yes, children, despite what I told you... I am putting them on my BLOG!! Haha!!

  15. Isabel,
    If you EVER decide to get rid of that settee, please let me know! I live in Eugene and would be happy to drive up there to fetch it (truth be known I'd drive even farther than that for it!)
    I've been looking for one like that and it's stunning......as are your other finds, and of course your darling children!!!

  26. Fabulous sette ~ its gorgeous. I love the velvet as well and would be terrified to try re-doing it myself. You have my complete admiration for your bravery. Who knows - you might be a natural at it. Lovely trinkets ~ especially your kiddos:)

  27. Most definitely, it would have 'MINE' written all over it! Isn't it a fun thing in this biz, how we can buy and play...then sell with no remorse...well, most of the time anyway!!!

    The kids are too much...sweet!!!
