Last Saturday, after I staged the house, I went with a friend antiquing in Blackstone, VA. Here are some photos of all the goodies we saw!
I love the dresser tray! Très chic! (punny, j'sais!)
All the beautiful china, linens, and silver were breathtaking! I can't wait to shop the house and pull out lots of things like this that are in cupboards and behind closed doors! With my new open shelving in my kitchen, I'll be able to display a lot of the lovely things that have been hidden!
All these roses! How beautiful. If I could afford it I would have bought up most of this booth.
Another pretty frilly lacy vanity.
I could really use this piece in my bedroom! I love the glass knobs.
White paint makes a cleaver re-purpose of an otherwise dated and ugly pine cupboard! Now it looks chic and French!
This was just one of the beautiful table settings they have! I love the simplicity of the white and gold in this pattern!
I love this gilded what not stand! So chic and French. The price wasn't too scary, just out of my budget!
They had tons of teacups! I'd love to have a Mad Hatter tea party with all miss-matched china and silver!
These frenchy buffet markers were so tempting they had to come home with me!
Vintage horse ribbons were all the rage in a magazine I recently read--someone sure stocked up at the right time!
The amount of beautiful stained glass and other architectural items were astonishing.
This beautiful vintage wedding dress looks ready to wear! Or would look fantastic on an antique dress form lit from below!
Bottles are something else that I'm seeing everywhere in decorating! Urban Outfitters is even selling old bottles!
Get 'em local and save big money!
This music box is one of my more favorite things I've found recently. Sadly, I left it there for someone else to buy! I really enjoyed my afternoon out. We had Greek food for lunch and stopped in a 1950's themed diner for ice cream. That evening we saw Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat put on by Nottaway County Public Schools--Kindergarten through High School! It was fantastic!
Hopefully the kitchen remodel will be finished ASAP--look for photos this weekend!
