Well, hello there.

And yes, from reading the title…I am here with a gift guide.  I know what you’re thinking…it seems too early.

But you know what I know.

It’ll be the November in a week, thanksgiving in a few, and before you know it, you’ll be trimming the tree […]

New Finds from The Chapel Market & A Little Vacation

By |October 26th, 2013|

Okay, okay, last post on The Chapel Market already.

It’s really not about the market, but about this small little pile of goodies I brought home with me.

I was pretty purposeful about the few purchases I made, and really there was just not much time to shop–I meant […]

my new sign–via between you and me

By |April 28th, 2012|

Thanks for all of your tweets, comments, and Facebook posts about my inner-rockstar buffet yesterday!

But you guys were equally (as I’d guessed) as excited about the sign.

Isn’t it breathtakingly fabulous?!?

This sign (which is my new favorite thing in my home) is made by the lovely […]

the sprig framing co.

By |April 24th, 2012|

We all have a thing for frames, right?

Probably because we’re constantly snapping pics of our little ones slash dear ones.

My favorites are the big, wooden custom frames–the ones that make the word “frame” seem too ordinary.

You know, like these.

That’s why running across the […]

at home

By |April 18th, 2012|

You know how some places just take you somewhere else?

That’s what atHome in Birmingham, Al. did for me the first time I visited.  I knew I’d have to go back for some photos (which they graciously let me take).

Mom and I drove to Birmingham to see The […]

a knight’s tale

By |March 12th, 2012|

Good Monday morning, friends!

I’m recovering from our weekend trip…we had a wonderful visit with Matt’s family in Tennessee, and boy, did I score some great finds.

I don’t even know how to convey my feelings.  There were auctions in gymnasiums, and antique stores abounding with good stuff.  I did think […]

I’m always so excited to share with you guys new places and must-sites…it really is one of the most fun parts about blogging.

Even just saving some pictures for this […]

Gigi’s petals– valentine’s day pillow

By |January 24th, 2012|

Morning, all!

I’ve been browsing around the www (this is a habit of mine), and I had to share with you some of the great deals going on with one of our sponsors, Gigi’s Petals.

When Katie showed me this pillow cover (14 x 14), I knew I had […]

repurposed vintage shoe cart, grayson’s room, & flea market finds

By |October 31st, 2011|

Once upon a time, I went flea marketing with a shady lady.

Said shady lady and I came across some amazing (and cheap) finds.

One being this old shoe cart that had already received a fresh coat of paint and a little nautical treatment.

At 10 smackeroos, it was mine.

Insert […]

southern accents

By |August 1st, 2011|

We’ve made quite a bit of progress on the ol’ dining room, so when we were driving by Cullman last weekend, Matt and I took a little detour to stop by this place…

We’d heard a bunch about Southern Accents from our pals, and it sound […]

Meet The Lettered Cottage – Fab Flea Market Find

By |May 13th, 2011|

Hey there- Layla from The Lettered Cottage here!

Shaunna should be home any time now, and just like I know you are, I’m anxious to hear about the work she and Matt did in Honduras. I’m sure it was quite an experience, and Kev and I really hope to go down with them on a future […]

the vault is open!

By |May 1st, 2011|


This has been fun.

This, I mean.  My little vault space in Troy Antiques is officially open.  It’s got a long way to go, but it’s coming together.  Some of this you’ve seen before, and some you haven’t.


The vault entrance is so […]

chalk paint and a giveaway!

By |April 11th, 2011|

Remember the coffee table preview?  And my new profession of love for a certain paint?

Here it is.  Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint.  The lovely and talented Miss Mustard Seed revealed it on her blog and we had spoken that week…I was sold to try it.


Spring Mantel

By |April 3rd, 2011|

It seems like just yesterday I was decorating the mantel for spring last year.  Three seasons, one new camera, and no more lost-Ava-pounds later, it was time to do it again.

It all started with my flea market finds with the mantel mania queen.  It was fun bouncing ideas around […]

Darby Drake’s Owl

By |March 31st, 2011|

There’s something in this picture that I’m crazy about.

And it’s not the vintage seltzer bottle.  (although I’m crazy about that too.)

It’s my new favorite accessory…I’ve been getting questions from you guys and people all over town, people I bump into while traveling.

And no, they’re not inquiring about […]

two shady ladies

By |March 25th, 2011|


Well, it was time for this shady lady and I to head to some local flea markets.


We had major scoping out to do.

I needed some mantel stuff.

She needed a rug.


We didn’t get her […]

found: antique crates

By |March 15th, 2011|

When I first began antiquing, I realized there was this whole world of possibility out there.  For value, for creating my very own vision, for renewal.

And over the course of time, I’ve found a few spots that feel made for me.  I’m a fan of the antique mall/flea market combo.  I like knowing that I’ll […]
