This past Sunday I spent a few hours antiquing.
Why is it that none of these places have air conditioning?
Anyways, I snapped a few pics of things I liked, thought were weird....so on
I've started to accept that I like to have a few strange things, I mean unique, to mix in with the more "normal" pieces.
I was raised by and grew up with hunters.
Sorry...but there is someone gorgeous about a beautiful animal head, rug, coat...
For as long as I can remember I have wanted sketches of chubby nude people in my grown-up bathroom. They are simple yet gorgeous. In a beautiful frame? Nice.
I don't even know what this sh*t is. And I could never begin to describe it so documentation was my only option. Any guesses?
Call me crazy but recover this baby in something like these Amy Butler fabrics
and what a statement it would make at my built-in desk in my all white kitchen.
There were cool when thinking about a kids playroom
Then I found these chairs which reminded me of ones that my friend Meri had when we were little.
But the entire purpose of this trip was to find an old shutter.
I have been talking and talking and talking about making a necklace holder and the only thing that has been stopping me was the lack of a shutter.
I headed to Adkins Architectural Antiques close to downtown Houston where I fell in love with doors. That's correct, doors.
See for yourself.
They had all these gorgeous HUGE doors salvaged from old homes and buildings.
And I just fell in love.
And now aim to build a house out of doors.
Who knew doors could have me in such a trance.
I didn't go home with doors.
But I did purchase one lonely shutter that will soon be hanging on my wall displaying a few of my gems.
After a little TLC I will post all about my little project.
Ever been surprised by how something like a door could swoop in and take over your heart?
Don't let the door hit you on the way out,
