New at Monticello and Stars

I know I’ve been neglecting my blog lately.  Honestly, I just haven’t been doing anything blog worthy.  Now that show season is over for me, I have been really lazy.  Not even shopping very much which is unusual for me.  I did go to a few thrift stores and hit a few estate sales last weekend, but didn’t find very much.  Today I made a little trip to both  of my mall spaces and spruced, fluffed, and brought in a few new things.

At Monticello I had sold a cute desk, so things were looking a little messy.  A good time to completely rearrange everything, which is exactly what I did. I brought in this cute and shabby vanity which you may remember from a recent post.

Also brought in an adorable vintage aqua fan

cute pink hat

sweet vintage cottage style chair (love the white paint with a little green showing in some of the chippy spots)

I absolutely adore this embroidered pillow!  I can’t imagine the time it took someone to make it.  It depicts one of my most favorite things: a quaint cottage by the water.

I brought a few things into my Stars booth as well, but unfortunately forgot to take a picture of some of them.  Here’s what I remembered to shoot.

Little shabby black shelf

great chippy vintage vanity mirror frame (would make a great chalkboard!)

Cute little handmade chair/shelf.  Would be adorable in a child’s room holding some vintage kids books.

I also brought in that little funky hanging light fixture on the right.

and finally, a cute vintage bell.  This is the kind that would go over a door in a store so the proprietor would know when people are coming or going.

It reminds me of the movie, “You’ve got Mail,” because there is a scene where Meg Ryan’s character is closing her adorable little children’s book store and the last thing she does before she leaves the store for good, is remove the door bell like this one. 

That’s it for me for now.  I hope to come back again with a White Wednesday post as I have a couple things to share.  TTFN!

What beautiful finds these are! I love the fan, those old fans are great.

I too have a vintage Aqua Fan, so Retro and here in Arizona one can never have too many fans or cooling devices! *wink* And I'm loving that vintage embroidered pillow, such a labor of love. Glad you are back to being inspired to Blog, I enjoy your Posts.

I enjoyed looking at your vintage finds. I remember those fans from my childhood. Mom told us not to stick our fingers in the fan when it was running - well although it was tempting, the fear was more compelling. Ha!

That's one of my favorite scenes in the whole movie...I always cry at that part!
I'm a huge fan of fans!!!

Love it all ~ especially the fan!

The fan is great!! Reminds me of the one I owned like that in my first apartment, with no air conditioning. It was the middle of the night and I had to get up, and stumbled through the bedroom door without my glasses on, only to stick my bare foot RIGHT inside the blades of the fan!! Eeeek!!! Woke me up alright! :-) But the fan was so darn cute, I let if off the hook.

Love the little child chair too - you are right, it would make a perfect little bookshelf. The Boxcar Children anyone? My old red volume would be perfect on there!

Lots of great finds there! I love the little hanging light fixture and most especially the Murano glass mirror. Awesome!
