Today I took a lunch break, something I rarely do.
I dragged my co-worker Jenny with me and paid a visit to The Spare Room.
It's a great little antique / flea market shop in Everett, just a 5 minute drive from our office.
Like I said...danger.
I only took pictures of the things I wanted and did not buy.
Not sure how that happened...but I'll take pics of the two things I did buy later.
For now, enjoy these lovely items that are still in need of a good home!
All this pretty chalkboard needs is a new ribbon to hang from.
It has no obvious home in my house, so I couldn't do it.
Oh, it was hard to walk away from.
This pretty was there 2 months ago the last time I visited.
I couldn't believe it was still there!
It is the most lovely pale sea green.
It has all kinds of organizational potential.
Maybe next time...
This would look fantastic over a side board or in a formal foyer.
I don't have either, so again - it wasn't for me.
But I love it, and I hope that one day, this mirror - or one much like it - finds it way back to me.
Nothing like a big bowl of glitter covered angels...don't you agree?
I did buy a small tiered basket for the kitchen and an adorable winter farm scene painting.
I'll post those pics later...I love them!
It was a fun trip to The Spare Room but I was once again reminded why I go so rarely.
It is a dangerous business, this treasure hunting.
One more thing!
Last night, I copied her great idea.
Jane Eyre is now a lovely paper Valentine wreath on the inside of our front door.
It was just as easy as Flower Patch Farm Girl
said it would be and took just 2 hours!
I love it.
