Treasure Hunt

Dining Room
I love hunting for treasures for my house. No, I mean I really love hunting for treasures for my house.

My definition of a treasure: something I didn't know I needed or wanted, at just the right price, that appears out of nowhere, and looks wonderful in my house.

Above photo: mirror-from an auction; lamps-my mother; buffet-bought from a friend; blue and white foo dog urns-Round Top.

Helpful Hint: mirrored place mats- they cover a multitude of imperfections.


Wicker set- Martha Stewart for KMart
Lamps- Hancock's fabric
Pillows- some custom, some from Stein Mart
Wrought iron tables- Laredo, San Bernardo Street
Spode plates- anywhere and everywhere

Living Room

Chairs- my mother, stored safely by a friend
Buffet- antique store in Three Rivers
More Spode plates- anywhere and everywhere
Prints- flea market
Candlesticks- Round Top
Lamps-Laredo's Casa Guero

My Study
Top hutch- the top of an old piano, painted white
Faux fireplace base- side of the road, painted white
Blue and White- anywhere and everywhere
Print- garage sale, Spring,Texas

WOW, is all I can say! I too love blue and white, milk glass, and mixing traditional pieces of my grandmother's with my style and flea market finds. The later is causing me a little more headache than I think it should though. Your pictures have given me some great ideas though. Your blog is absolutely beautiful. Thank you for stopping by my place and for such a sweet comment. Hope to talk to you soon :)

xo, Meg
