More Mart

It is 7:00 pm and I probably will not get around to posting this until early tomorrow morning cause I am dead dog tired.  I was dealing with some cranky ass clients this week......and it made me want to go get a retail job in Pottery Barn so I could just walk away when someone starts picking on me.

The good thing is that here it is Friday already and I have no commitments for the weekend so it is ALL MINE.
But enough about me...I know why you are here...yep for pretty pictures and that is right up my alley also.

More coffee bean bag pillows.  I liked these as they had some color to them.  These pillows were created and designed by Kellie Guthrie of  G.E.A.R.  They are all re-cycled, re-invented and one of a kind.




After seeing them I realized I had purchased one from World of Rugs here in Atlanta over Christmas for my sofa.  This particular one had the most beautiful silk fabric on the back.  They are very well made and come with the insert.
This was a lamp shade made from news paper...from a company called Stray Dog  They have really cool lamps but these shades caught my eye.



Another one made the same way out of a map.  Maps are hot now.

Can you tell I liked them :)  I know some bloggers out there could whip this up before breakfast!  Get going.....
I think there was some discussion a while back on beds.  Do you like them all fluffy and pillowy or tailored.  When I saw this bed I was definitely leaning towards the all fluffy......  It was the bed, the table, the bedding...everything.  So incredibly soft and feminine.

The bedding is from a company called Pom Pom Interiors  It is all organic linen.  Kind of reminded me of Matteo

The whole setting was just magical....

More creams and linen...and I specifically took a picture of the rug because I had an ah ha moment in this booth.  That is just painted seagrass...I know..... I know so yesterday but dang it just hit me.  I have one I got at Ikea in my bedroom and I am going to paint it.  maybe this weekend.  It's not even perfect and mine won't be either.  I love that!  OK..Ok...on to the pillows.  They are from Shades of Grey
Their pillows are to die....All made of vintage linen and one of a kind.

You need to check out their website to see so many more.

Each one is unique and different.  Hey...they would look good on the pretty bed above!

Ok...lets just do some random shots now....This was a picture that I loved.  It is by Bobby Sikes who is located in Georgia.
I love how it is just pictures of white kitchenware.  With the black frames it is classic.  I can see me getting some of this.
Do you love it like I do????

What about this...cute idea huh?

You know what?????  There is some incredibly beautiful stuff at the Mart...as I have shown you, but then you can come around the corner to this and you go WTF...are you serious????  Who is going to buy this?  I wanted to just go in and ask the vendor how many orders of that really "cool" picture of the guitars have you sold?  Puzzling isn't it???


So I am going to leave you with this image in your brain....it will help you when you are out shopping this weekend for pretty things....to know what NOT to buy....hee haw!

There is still more....and then I am going to have to start thinking of some real post.  You people who post every day...I bow down to you.  Seriously.....I am good for about 3 times a week.  Works for me.

Make the weekend fun!

Pin It!

Someone picked on YOU!? Don't they know that you're a big time designer and blogger and your fans will rip their eyes out? Oh wait--that might sound too harsh.

This was a really inspiring post. So many ideas to jump into! Must try the map shade for one of my boys' rooms. Love me a painted rug. Do it! That all white room is awesome because of all the different textures. I could move right in.

Enjoy your weekend!!

Sherry, sorry about the cranky people. They must not like themselves very much. (At least it was a short week!).

You have a good eye, Ms.! Love the map shades, the creamware pictures (yes!) and the vellum books. Did you need to get a truck?!

Happy weekend to you!

Do your cranky clients read your blog? Maybe seeing their bad attitudes in print would change their tude. The nerve of people!

Love Stray Dog Designs. Aren't they out of Chattanooga? I've always coveted their paper mache-looking pineapple lamp. Those map shades are very cool. Hmm. Must go dig up some maps and hodge podge.

And I'm good if I can get three posts a week. Often it's just 2. You don't want to overdo it after all. Love your posts regardless of the frequency. Happy Weekend. We got more snow here in TN. Uggh.

LOVE the pompom interiors bedding!! Goodness that's gorgeous! Happy FRIDAY!

Lou Cinda @ Tattered Hydrangeas said...

If I post three times a week I call myself a mega blogger....got no time, got no content! I am boring!

Great photos, love the pillows with that cording! And the map lampshades would be great in a boys room! (I have two of those...boys not lampshades)

And I seriously LOVE those photographs of the white ironstone(?) all stacked! Gorgeous!

And the guitars.....in a loft maybe in Soho....or not....

Have a great weekend....

Thanks for sharing...you are right..those lamps shades may be all over blog land by tonight. In fact, I have a lamp shade without a cover that would be perfect. Who knows, by this weekend I could have it done!!! I am sorry about your client troubles..Hang in there.

Crystal @ Ordinary Days said...

Oh that bedroom! I would soooooo feel like a princess in there and never want to leave!!

Carmel @ Our Fifth House said...

Cranky people stink! Love the pics- thanks for the eye-candy :)

pk @ Room Remix said...

So sorry you had to deal with crabby clients! At least it's the weekend and you can take out all your frustrations on your painted rug (well, not too much or you'll ruin it, but sometimes crafty stuff can be relaxing). Can't wait to see it! Hope you have a good one...

Show us how your painted sisal turns out! Those bed linens are dreamy. I feel like if I post more than every five days people will be sick of me (especially those getting my emails...my own email box is sooo full).
Have a great weekend!

Love the pillows. Sorry you had cranky clients, but just to let you know, I work at Pottery Barn and we don't get to just walk away from cranky customers. We have to deal with them until they are satisfied.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

I wish I had made it there. I was supposed to go with my sil since her daughter works there. My sil ended up working for a friend in one of the booths so I didn't get to go. Maybe next time. Love those pillows.

SHERRY HART said...

Anonymous...busted! I know you can't just walk away but if they insult you...you can go get a manager :) And they might beat them up for you! Or poke their eyes out....or secretly put toilet paper on their shoe and let them walk around with it like a fool.....

LLH Designs said...

Your sass in this post cracked me up! The bit about wishing you worked at PB so you could walk away? And the lampshade some bloggers could make before breakfast? Hysterical! Thanks for the laugh! And I'm with you on three times a week. I can't manage to read anyone's blog every single day...much less write one!

Thanks you for the sweetest ever comment on my birthday post. Made my day!

Enjoy your weekend in your own favorite ways!

AntiqueChase said...

HAHAHA! What if your clients read this blog... they will be all snooty with their reading glasses on and say.. "Honey, I think our designer just called me cranky"... LOL!!

quintessence said...

Wonderful finds. I especially like the map shades (love maps of any variety) and the photos of the ironstone (another love). Also the vignette from Pom Pom is just lovely!

Privet and Holly said...

Loooved shopping
with you, Sherry!
We like a lot of
the same things and
could probably do some
damage if we were at
the Mart together!!
Hope you are enjoying
your weekend away from
all those crabby-pants!

I just found you from your comment you left on My Sweet Savahannah's blog! I love it! And I love your blog!

Haven and Home said...

Oh I love seeing your finds, it is so nice to see Market through another eye. I loved getting to meet you!

Kelly said...

Just found your blog via your comment on mine - and you totally have me dying to make a trip out to the Mart! I'm an Atlantan too, and I keep hearing about this mysterious mecca of all things cheap and fabulous. MUST. GET. THERE.

Naomi @ Design Manifest said...

thanks for the resources. The bedding looks yummy! Man, I'd love to get down there for the mart soon...

Ok, if youre curious as to why your views went up 50 more views than normal... that was probably me :) just randomly stumbled across your blog and i love love it! Have any advice to thrift shopping newbies? I'm never ever that lucky when i go to shops - i hit up goodwill probably weekly - i find great trinkets but never great furniture. Know of any in Austin you could point me to!? Keep on posting!
