This past weekend was jam-packed, starting with Boo At The Zoo Friday night with my little popcorn!
On Saturday, we got a huge shipment of furniture in for our church offices (can’t wait to show you guys that when it’s all done!) and while we were waiting for the furniture delivery, I got the chance to do a little browsing at a couple of my favorite local shops.
And there was some goo-ood stuff, you guys.
First find of the day: this wicker ottoman. I feel like wicker is having a major moment right now, and I’m totally OK with that. This stool would be such an awesome way to add a little warmth to any room!
This basket was so sculptural and unique; it could really make a statement all on its’ own!
I fell HARD for this square glass container (and there were TWO of them!), but it was on the pricey side. Not overpriced, but just more than I was looking to spend that day. And now that I’m looking at this picture again, I’m having total non-buyers remorse. Yep, I shoulda bought it. (See how quickly I can talk myself into something? Shopping is dangerous for me.)
I thought this little cabinet would be so cute in a play room or even a covered patio to hold outdoor games/items. I can’t remember the price, but you could definitely DIY something similar!
Bamboo is right up there with wicker right now for me. I just can’t get enough! This easel was AWE-some (it’s a little hard to tell in the picture, but it had fantastic details), but expensive. How cool would it be holding a big piece of art or a mirror? Gah!
I could totally see this old metal carriage on a front porch surrounded by a bunch of pumpkins and flowers. And it would be so fun to decorate up for Christmas, too!
OK, there’s a lot going on in this picture, but the thing I was trying to capture was the giant whale. And I was teetering on one tip-toe to even get this shot. But this thing was pretty good size and not that expensive. Would be so cool in a kids room! Methinks Roarke may get a nautical-inspired little boys room in the future!
I LOVE the look of chimneas and this one had such a cool retro vibe with the brass detailing and shape. If we had the outdoor space for something like this, I would’ve been begging JP to bring this home!
This old cabinet caught my attention right away. The drawers were labeled with things like ‘lavender’ and ‘cedar leaf’ so I’m thinking it may have been something like an apothecary cabinet? Super cool.
String art has gained popularity in a big way these past couple years, and this one was out of this world. It was made with strands of brass and copper! And isn’t the design so funky?! It would make a great statement piece – this thing was large and in charge!
Anyone else do any browsing this weekend? Or maybe you were lucky enough to do some buying? Do tell!
