Weekend Fun

How was everyone's weekend? I hope everyone got outside to enjoy the amazing weather! My weekend was filled with softball, baseball, family and of course some kind of creative project thrown into the mix. My boyfriend and cousins play on a softball team and I just love watching their games when the weather is beautiful outside. Also, who wouldn't want to watch with this little cutie by your side? My cousin's niece Taylor was all ready to play with her own pink glove and baseball! Their team is called the Blue Jays, and how appropriate that we went to watch the real Jays play right after? The Jays lost but I still love them. #gojaysgo!

And I know I promised no more Louis updates but I'm sad to say that the upholstery fabric I wanted from Designer Fabrics is on backorder and they don't even know when they will be receiving more of it! So if any of you bloggers/DIYers are reading this, can you please help a girl out and recommend any other fabric stores that would sell some nice upholstery velvet? If I can't find anything similar to what I really, really want then I will have to go with my second choice, *SIGH*. As you can see I got my wonderful and super-sweet BF to help out with the Louis stripping and we got a lot accomplished. Thanks love :) Please note: I MADE him wear those safety glasses. Those staples have a mind of their own!

My parents also have this trestle coffee table that they're in the midst of stripping and we were throwing out some ideas on how to re-work it.

Paint it white? Paint it black? Leave it natural? We were even toying with idea of separating the 2 pieces and using the base to make a bench and the top as a separate coffee table with some modern legs. What do you think? Happy Monday Everyone! xoxo

Photos From The Christie Antique Show

Going to these shows is fun but also a little dangerous for me. I always seem to fall in love with something and there's so many different things to see. I decided to photograph my journey through the different vendors and booths. Below are some of the cool things I saw there:

Loved these bright lanterns. It's a great way to add colour and character to a kitchen or bedroom.

This buddha was amazing. Doesn't he look so jolly? You can't see it but the sticker read 'priceless'. Of course I didn't leave without rubbing his belly for good luck.

I loved these white ice cream chairs. I can picture this set on a cute balcony or patio.

Railroad crossing sign? Would love to put something cool like this on my living room wall but definitely out of my budget.

Okay, this would have creeped me out as a child. Now I think they're kinda cute.

There was tons of hobnail, depression glass and brass everywhere.

I must have spent 40 mins at this booth just touching and looking at all the letterpress blocks. I love the look and feel of letterpress on paper. I snagged a few blocks which I plan to use to create some custom cards.

I loved this chair, especially the cane back. And of course these large letters got my attention! This old drawer pull and bustform lampshade was also photo worthy...

And of course, more chairs...

And then I came across this beautifully styled booth by Eclectic Pelican Antiques. They had these cute business cards that had french words on one side and the translation on the other. LOVE!

Wayne, the gentleman at the booth was so sweet and even gave me one of their beautiful canvas bags.

And here are my purchases for the day. 2 pieces of depression glass for an upcoming photoshoot that I'm styling and four letterpress blocks for some custom cards I will be creating.

The next show is on Saturday September 7th but you can check out their website here for additonal info.

Happy Hump Day All!
