Happy Father's Day to all you loving and doting Dad's! Today we celebrate YOU and the joys of Fatherhood. You are our strength and our ROCK!!!! We love you!!!!
Yesterday my hubby was sweet and kind enough to keep the kiddies while my dear friend Suzanne and I drove up to Atlanta to attend Scott's Antique Market which is held the second weekend of every month. Over the years I've purchased several gorgeous pieces of furntiure and colletables from Scott's. This place is truly an antique lovers paradise!!! This was my girlfriend Suzanne's first time attending Scott's and we had HOURS of fun together!
Shabby Chic furniture
I found this darling little piece for a BARGIN! It's kid size and it has a little tin wash basin in the middle and a little hook rack. Im going to use it in the playroom for the kiddies. I was thinking Vivi could play with it and use it to bathe her dollies in. I got it half off! YIPPEE!!!!!!!
Here it is in the house. I think she will have a BALL playing and using it.
We stopped and OOGLED several vintage jewelry bling. I fell in love with these FUN earrings.
LOOKIE at this SUPER BLINGY BOW!!!! OH MY!!!!
I saw this WOWZA piece and giggled to Suzanne and said "How hot would that be to suprise your man wearing nothing but high heels and this gorgeous sparkley necklace??? hee! hee!
These next couple of photos are my FAV!!!! The SWEETEST little goodies and treasures. I was actually VERY GOOD and held MUCH restraint!!!
Doll cabinet FULL of googly eye dolls!

I just ADORE this little blue eyed cutie!
LOVE these charming girlie salt and pepper shakers!
Vintage Children hangers
How sweet is this vintage sand pail???
I was DYING over the owners collection of VINTAGE holiday figurines and collectables! I was like a little kid in the candy store wanting one of each.
I purchased this beautiful old fringe card for a steel! When I saw this I instantly thought of Miss Heather of Pretty Petals. I know how much she loves these cards. 🙂 Miss Heather when is your b-day? hee! hee!
Late this summer I am starting a project of "re-doing" Grant's big boy room in a vintage nautical theme. My friend Suzanne who is an interior designer suggest I dont do the obvious "red, white, and blue" and do more neutral tones of sand, linen, seafoam greens, aqua, blue, and a mixuture of orange and gold yellows. I LOVE the idea!!! Im going to purchase twin beds and do simple bed coverings of washable matelasse coverlet, stripe ticking window treatments, and accessories that are vintage and vintage inspired. Lookie at what I bought yesterday for his room! Sooo cute and they match his wardrobe PERFECT!
I purchased this big wooden star which I thought it would look great on his bedroom wall. My hubby instantly took one look and said it looked like a devil worship symbol. GEEZ!!!! THANKS HON!!! LOL!!!
I found these already painted blue and green picture frames, and these vintage bouys.
Keep your eyes open if you see anything that would be super cute for his room. Drop me a line! Looking is ALWAYS the fun part!!!
Ok gals, Im less than one week away from sharing with you some fun and exciting news. Cant wait! Come back and visit me soon!
Lastly, I want to dedicate this post to my beloved Alli. My husband and I had to put our sweet girl to rest this past Friday. She has lived a long and wonderful 16 years. She has brought so much unconditional love and happiness to my life. I purchased her when I was 20 years old and she has journeyed with me thru the up's and down's of my life. She will always be in my heart and will be deeply missed.
Hugs & Kisses to you all! Have a wonderful Father's Day & week!
