My friend Linda at Nina’s Nest and I are heading out to do a little antiquing. Want to come along? We are also hoping to get a little bit of fall inspiration. I am ready for pumpkins and Indian corn…well, almost! We are going to our favorite antique mall…the Queen of Hearts in Alpharetta, Georgia. Sooo…rob your virtual piggy bank and join us!
Oooh...and right away there are little signs of fall! Or...I should I say big? Don’t you love these giant acorns? Their caps are made up of actual acorns! Clever, huh?
And look at these white fabric pumpkins with twigs as stems! It’s hard to tell from this picture, but these guys are huge!
It looks like antlers will be big again this fall. Good…because I have a growing collection of sheds…dropped by the deer as the new ones grow in. I just can’t do the other kind!
Also still big...chalkboard paint! Gotta love these tags! Do you see what they are made from? Old laminate samples…the perfect size!
Of course, there were Union Jacks…all the rage…like this great burlap-covered stool with its hand-painted version. Love it!
And you know I’ve got to have some frenchiness…and this is the real thing! Love these vintage salt and match boxes!
And…wow!…do you want these fabulous French headboards as much as I do? Gorgeous!
Sheep just look so French to me…reminding me of Marie-Antoinette’s perfumed sheep in her little hamlet on the grounds of the Palace of Versailles.
Speaking of which…here’s a frenchy pillow advertising poultry food from Versailles.
I was excited to see this little pillow! If it looks familiar…
…it’s because I made my own version! You can see how I did it here.
I love these frenchy chairs and table! I know it’s the rage to paint them, but I love the warm look of the wood. It just says French farmhouse to me.
Just look at the detail on the chairs…unusual!
It reminds me of this urn that I showed you last time…which was still there, by the way. Wouldn’t it be pretty on that table?
I always try to leave with at least one inspiration and this is it for me this time…a basket lined with burlap and filled with lids…in blue and white, of course!
And here is my version! The basket came from my mom’s house and was there as long as I can remember. I suspect that it was handmade.
I added a frenchy vintage tag to echo the one on the inspiration basket…although theirs is a price tag! lol
And there you have it…our little virtual shopping spree and my antiquing inspired basket! I hope you had fun and found a little something to buy with your virtual money! Baby Kitty says Excuse me, but I would like some cat food…and not the virtual kind! Looks like I’ve got to go! See you next time!
