While reading one of my favorite blogs, Blueprint Bliss , I learned about a company called Tracery Interiors. It was started by a firm called Dungan Nequette Architects located in Birmingham, Alabama. The Tracery shop is located in Rosemary Beach, Florida. Tracery’s Story: The best stories are those that flow seamlessly- in which every part […]
My friend, Erin, who writes the blog Rare & Beautiful Treasures recently sent me photos of an update she did to what she called, “an old ugly, paint-stained chair”. She had some scrap canvas drop cloth material, so she sewed a shabby chic slipcover for most of the chair: Then she went to a craft […]
Bummer news…apparently the Blissdom Convention is sold out, so I won’t get to meet so many of my internet friends in Nashville this weekend.What a total drag. 🙁 Maybe I’ll drown my sorrows by hitting up another flea market.That’s my favorite quick pick-me-up. Speaking of which, here are the rest of the photos I took […]
Before Mom and I headed out to Eastbrook Flea Market on Saturday, we made a stop at Cooters Pond. Kind of a goofy name, but what a beautiful place to walk and think.Kevin shot these photos (and the one above) there recently: Here’s Mom and I on Saturday…checking out the view… After a nice walk, […]
I’ll be back soon with photos of all our finds! Have a Happy Saturday, Layla
My Mom is coming up for a visit today. I am so excited to see her! I think we’re going “junk huntin” at Eastbrook Flea Market tomorrow. I’ll be sure to take my camera and share some of the treasures we find. Tonight, I imagine we’ll play a game of “Upwords”, drink some sparkling wine, […]
I loved Misti’s idea to turn her $13 flea market find into a bench, so out of curiousity, I did a little research on the subject. My search led me to Sharon at Interior Image, who was kind enough to send me a link to this darling little bench she made: It looks great in […]
Hello! As a follow-up to my post on “Misti’s Flea Market Find” the other day, I thought I’d share these photos of the lovely burlap beauties one of my gracious readers led me to. They’re coffee sack-covered cork boards, and I think they are fantastic! The woman behind all of this fantastic-ness is Maya, of […]

Misti recently posted this photo of a flea market find she scored for $13.00: My brain kicked into overdrive when I saw the photo. I was instantly more drawn to the clean lines of the footboard, so I decided to focus on ideas for that piece. Inspired by these scrumptious chairs… …I started to think […]
Quote of the Day: “Great ideas come from great bike rides” Watch this!
Feast your eyes upon another treasure I spotted while I was at the Flea Market today- Stunning, isn’t it?Can you guess the price? (Or more importantly, can you guess how BADLY I wanted to straighten up this booth!?) Updated, January 26th: The bed is priced at $199.99!
In between Design Consultations, I made a quick trip over to my favorite flea market today. I had two things in mind, while I scurried up and down the aisles.My eyes quickly shifted, side to side, scanning each over-flowing, junk-filled booth, in record time. The first item I was on the look out for was […]
Back by popular demand, a fresh batch of Good Jars! Here’s the story of the creation of the Good Jar. Over about a months time, Kevin and I sat in a quiet spot and wrote down a list of 365 things that would make our days just a little bit brighter. We then transferred our […]
