Scott's in March

I am so dang behind with my Scott's pictures.  I was going to post Friday, but I wanted to observe the Blogger Day of Silence for Japan.  I remember when my husband came in to my office to tell me what was happening.  It was very shocking to see some of the live footage.  

It was a blast meeting some of the bloggers this month who made the trip to Atlanta.  Kathy  and Sissy were there shopping together.  Also Emily was in town from Charlotte with her husband [who was in town for something called "basketball"].  We all met along with Angela Friday evening at JCT Kitchen for a great meal.  

They have all done post on what they saw, and it always amazes me how the experience is different for everyone!

Here were SOME of the treasures I wanted.  Oh wait...I wanted everything I saw.
Loving some orange.  You would have to put some glass on this because if you spilled something, it would go right to the rug.  Kind of like in the "old" days when the shelves in refrigerators were metal.  Yeah...that was like in the 1800's when I got my first one.
I wanted these also...oh wait...why don't I just paint mine orange?  Duh.
Friday night at dinner Sissy was morning these.  She almost bought them for a cool...$100 each.
Or I could paint mine blue.   Lets get to the pillows...
 
I could be a pillow hoarder.
They are kind of like lipstick.  If you go shopping and you are broke...you can always find $20 for a tube of lipstick.
Trina baby...you had me a orange and pink :)
Love
Should have posted these on the 17th.
Barbara Berry.....come with me.
Juiciness....
Love the pink...why don't I have any pink in my house...I should.

Lets go from pillows to chickens....
These are the cutest ever...wait there is more.
Can I just have this in my backyard without the chickens????
So cute.
$675.00 for 6.  Come on...with old leather seats.  I am sure you would have to recover but don't you love the style???

Why did I not buy this...It was cheap.  
I just loved this touch of green with all the neutral.  Hmmmm....easy to accomplish.
This reminds me of Celerie Kemble's fabric for Schumacher.  One of my favorites.

Plexiglass DR table....or big desk.....please find your way to my house.

The was so much more....sigh.  What did I buy?  Some architectural  prints.  That is all...sometimes it is overwhelming to me also.  If I see something cool then I think well I would have to replace that and then sell this and then recover that....and I just can not pull the trigger.  You know how that goes.  
Or what about this concept...a plan...like I do for my clients?  
Nah...cause then I would obsess about finding the perfect thing.

Thursday I had to get a cyst removed from my back.  They gave me about 20 shots of Novocain to numb the area.  She kept saying "do you feel this?"...yes..."what about this?" a big yes.  And so on.  After a few minutes I said "I will tell you when I DON"T feel it OK....crikey  Nurse Rached...WTF.

So anyway long story short, that night it was throbbing [when the doctor spent 10 minute digging it out like she was searching for gold] so I took a pain pill and then drank a beer before bed.  I thought the beer would start quicker that the pill.  Whoa that was quite the cocktail.  I had the worst nightmares ever.  My husband woke me up about 3 times telling me to shut up.  

I think I will just let it hurt.  That was freaky.

Sun is out...off to walk the poochies.

The Sister Sophisticate said...

Excuse me for being so late to the Scott's thing, but um, OMG! Where and what is this beautiful place? Yeah!! I would have jumped right on that coffee table, exactly how cheap was it? Sorry to hear about your back!

Kathysue said...

sherry I had to laugh about your pillow/lipstick remark. Omgosh I am such a pillow addict and a lipstick/gloss girl, you have no idea. I never can resist a new lipstick and the funny thing is they all are about the same colors but just enough difference to make me not feel guilty for buying yet another one!!! I hope your back feels better. I am writing today since it is pouring down rain and will be for the next 5 days. The plants are loving it so it is all good!! xo Kathysue

Rene said...

You poor thing. Hopefully you will sleep better going forward. I could totally be a pillow hoarder too.

Carmel @ Our Fifth House said...

O M GEEEEE - yes, you hit the nail on the head - there's nothing like new lipstick ;) I love the she was here for something called "basketball" comment - Kentucky peeps are serious about our ball games!!!

The Vintique Object said...

Wow, this Scott's place! It must be heaven on earth! What caught my eye was that table on the old barber's chair lift. I wanted to do this so badly when we lived in a studio a few years back. Coffee table to dining room table with a few pumps of the foot thingie. Somebody beat me to it. -Camille

lizziefitz said...

Sherry , Great finds! sorry about your back, that is just like me at the dentist...OUCH!!!

A Perfect Gray said...

My Interior Life said...

So sorry about your back - that sounds awful. And yes, you're right - I didn't see half these things (that lucite table - OMG), which was probably for the best. Had so much fun seeing your finds. Take care of yourself and your back!

Heidiopia said...

I totally agree-- Scotts is sometimes so overwhelming I find myself paralyzed! Then I have all that reverse buyer's remorse after... vicious cycle. :) Hope you're better soon! Enjoy the sunshine this weekend!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

You are such a hoot. I told you to lay off the booze. I didn't see any of the stuff you showed. This must be at the other building that I didn't even know existed until too late in the day. I will visit it next time.

eclecticrevisited said...

Kim@Chattafabulous said...

OOh, that sounds painful! Let this be a lesson not to mix beer with pain meds. Feel better, girl.

Lori @ Lori May Interiors said...

Hope you're feeling better by today! Love the pics and especially the plexi dining table! Looking for a desk just like that for my office, maybe there will be another one next month!
Take care!

I can only imagine how overwhelming it must be. What fun though! I need to take a trip to Atlanta soon just to visit all these great antique markets. I hope you're feeling better and your husband is getting some sleep:)

So sorry about your back--ouch!!! (They didn't find any gold back there?)

I love that blue chair and CHICKEN HOUSES!!

like buying lipstick!
