A few simple things...

There is something to be said for simple. 
Though I am not always drawn to the most simple of things- sometimes 
 simple vignettes are absolutely beautiful and inspire a few photos


Like a single bloom that has fallen from the bouquet 
and landed on the pages of an old book

Feathered Nest Friday

Welcome to Feathered Nest Friday!
I hope your week has been going well! 

Here's what I shared this week~

A recent thrift store find- a Bolga Market Basket
Not my usual grab but it caught my eye and I am officially in love with it.

Collecting~ Mirrors

Oh I have such a weakness for antique mirrors.
That shabby finish and worn patina
and that lovely mottling in the reflection


I admit. 
I simply cannot get enough of them 
and it is hard for me to pass a vintage mirror by without picking it up and admiring it and... 
yes, theres a good chance I will be bringing it home with me. 
 Again.

Bolga Market Basket

It happens this way sometimes. 
You bump into something at a store that you didn't realize you needed
but that you have to have.


Something like that pair of skinny capris in a bold hot pink with a little satin detail
 that you just know when you put them on they will make you feel a bit more sassy.
Or those strappy wedge sandals that would be perfect  paired with those capris
 and a little white tank top
 I have such a weakness for wedge sandals.
 I might have a *few* pairs of them and yet, there is always another new pair I fall in love with.

 Or maybe it is a beautiful woven basket that you find sitting on a shelf at a thrift store
that instantly grabs your attention and goes right in your cart.

Treasure hunting in High Point

Junking is such a good thing, right?
Spending hours scouring stacks of treasures
searching up high and down low 
in overloaded old buildings searching for
 that right piece.


The thrill of the find and fun of the hunt is what keeps you going
especially after a red-eye flight 
On Saturday- I was running on adrenaline. A lot of adrenaline. 
Oh and probably about 3/4 of a pot of coffee and a handful of almonds for breakfast.

Feathered Nest Friday

Welcome to Feathered Nest Friday!
I hope your week has been going well!
It has been a busy one over here- but so much fun and so inspiring!

 I just got back from a trip to High Point Market where I had the opportunity to preview furniture from some amazing companies.

You can read about some of the beautiful rugs I fell in love with in my post about Loloi

Old tobacco tin vase

You know, sometimes you find inspiration in the strangest places.
Like something that is covered in scratches and rust
but that has that perfect old charm that just simply talks to you.
