The Loot

OK...can I tell you how HOT it was yesterday at Scott's?  GUAM HOT.....I kept asking myself "what am I doing out here sweating like crazy, is it worth it?"  Damn right I said!  And here are some of the pictures to prove it!  I actually went with a friend of mine [a Scott's "virgin"] Mimi and she was quite the little trooper.  I mean we got out of the car and walked to the first vendor and she made a purchase.  She was "in", hooked as we say in the scavenger shopping business :)
Here are some of the things I saw, and left behind [insert pouty face here]. cool is this bike?  Just propped against a wall in a beach house? is one of my purchases.  I have been looking for the right ones to buy forever.  They were always too small or not the right color.  I turned the corner and BAMM, I was in love.  Not in the budget this month but you know how that goes!  Two of them.

I also bought these large apothecary jars.  They are kind of hard to come by and they will be lamps in my house.  I know I already have one large glass lamp but I don't care!  The good thing about glass lamps is that you can see through them [duh] so it opens up the space somewhat.  My theory anyway, and I am sticking to it.

I then headed over to some of my favorite pillow vendors.  Have I mentioned how much I love pillows?
Love these.  She is from North Carolina and always has gobs of great ones.  I have bought many a pillow from her.
Coral and Blue....great combo
I have always loved this Osborne and Little fabric!
Jewel tones...they are back.....
I drooled over these two.  Kept trying to make them work in one of my rooms.....She is there every month and I look forward to seeing what gems she has brought along.

These next few are from Lare McCreary, a friend of mine.  He is a great guy, and has just started his  own line.  With 4 girls under the age of 7 I think....he needs you to buy some pillows!  Tu Tu's are expensive :)

gotta love...

If you want to see more, you can contact him at:
He has tons, and actually showed at the Atlanta Mart in July.

This next girl is awesome.  Many of these are one of a kind.  She does do custom also.

beautiful gray and gold on linen
I LOVE this one
old linen napkin sewn on rough linen

Now for some things I REALLY loved.
How cute is this?  There were 2 of these and I thought they were ingenious.  I wracked my brain for a place to put them!
And, loved these 2 lamps.  The color was great...
Janis Tant
205 447 1200  if you want them!

OK...more from the "want" pile
How cute is this TV?  I mean really, when are flat screens going to come out in cool colors?  I managed to score a white 42 inch about 4 years ago, but they don't make them anymore.

I thought this was a cool pendant.
Please...a king size headboard in my favorite color for 295.00  Steal...
I could barely walk away from this little puppy....if only they had 2 of them!
Great makeover.....
I know...another glass lamp, but the shape was so cool.
Love this display.  I actually have this tray and did not know what it was used for.  The tag said it was a tray used to dry fruit.  It actually looks pretty dang good with those shells on it.
 I loved this girls art.  She is from Athens and priced very well.  I believe this was 199.00 and it was huge!  Here are a few more pictures of her work.

Her name and number is Cecel Allee  706.338.7627  She does not have a web site, but I am sure she could send you pictures of other work. there you have it.  So many cool little money :)  IF I win the lottery tonight, you can bet I will high tail it back tomorrow for a huge shopping spree!
Have a great weekend

I'm looking for an architectural piece for my entryway...only problem is that I have wainscoting and everthing beautiful is always too long....I love that turquoise diamond piece. I was going to take J2 down today to look for stuff for her apartment, but I'm done there.....she has enough stuff for now. It's going to be all about me now...ha!

I am so jealous of this whole experience! I am really looking for some fantastic architectural pieces but all of our local flea markets are basically bad garage sales!

I have a love/hate relationship with your Scott's posts. I'm ready to start whining and stomping my feet because I live too far away! I am seriously going to schedule my next visit to Hotlanta around a Scott's trip--oh, and family. ;-)

So, when do I get to come down and go to Scott's with you??? Looks like so much fun, and I am loving those pillows.

Had so much fun Sherry!! Think I'm going back tomorrow by myself, just to wander around.
If you go, let me know and we'll meet up. Bringing a hair rubberband this time!
You're the best!
