The Motherload!


OK....so as I said, Thursday I was off to Scott's Antique Market.  I have been strolling the isles of Scott's and Lakewood [sigh...I still miss Lakewood SO much!] since I moved to Atlanta in 1989!  I have furnished many a room with things I have bought at Scott's over the years.  Remind me to tell you the story of when my friend Maria, when she swiped the most beautiful silver spoon away from me.  I am still "bitter" 15 years later.....I am so lucky to live here in Atlanta with all these resources.  I have been looking for some art to put over my mantel for years.  Either it was not the right size or too expensive, or just not the right color.  I knew I wanted something abstract.  I walked into the south building, and the first thing I saw was this picture that was exactly what I was looking for.  I started to taking to the artist, Rebecca A. Cabassa from Gulf Breeze, Florida.  She said it wasn't finished, but it looked perfect to me, being the art "expert" that I am.....[not].  I held my breath when I asked the cost....and I could not believe it was in my price range,whatever that is :)........!  Done...sold....load it up!  So excited!  I am posting a few pictures  of how it looks in my room.
Pin It!

Your room is absolutely beautiful, and I do love the art (as well as that big glass lamp in your kitchen!). Perfect!

Thanks Emily! That was a Scott's purchase! A friend and I actually each bought 2 that day and we dropped one and broke it! So I gave her mine and just used the one! They did not have any more the next month. Bummer....

Sherry,
I love the way you mix blue and green together in a room. I am working on my dining room and want to do a light blue ceiling with oatmeal walls but I'm getting cold feet.
