Scotts and some fun....

I am dashing out the door today....doesn't that sound like I am dressed like Jenna from J Crew going someplace important????  Dashing......

I'm not but I have 50 minutes to get this post out, get ready and leave.  On your mark.....

Here is some cool stuff you might like....

2 of these....I don't like that there is no feet....

How cool are these pendants?????  Sold!

Wouldn't this be cool in your garden....love the fishing floats.

I know everyone has them....but need some?

I know who would love these...Christine from Bijou & Boheme  She like all things pink, gold, and girly.  Love her style.

Let's see...salvage, industrial and orange...what is not to like!

Again...salvage, industrial and red!

Look good in a bowl, or on a book.....

Kinda of weird but I might want in a funky way....

Ally...this is for you.....

Why do things look better on metal stands....

OK...an old textile crate.  He took the wheels off, shined up the metal corners...threw a piece of glass on it, and made me want to sell my soul for it.  Especially with the chairs.

I am loving all things vintage, but modern these days.

Oh heavens...this desk.....no words.

Again...orange...blaa...blaa....laundry room, mudroom, office....kitchen......orange.....

Headboard.  Why does paint look good peeling off everything but my outside trim?

Anything in mass.....

This may or may not have come home with me :)


And of course, if there is nothing else that has struck you fancy...there is always this.
A more than life size chicken...which reminds me of this from The Bloggess

OK I have 29 minutes to make myself look like a little more than someone who got dressed in a dark closet.

Oh by the way, I am guest posting on pillows [something near and dear to my heart as you know] over at Classic Casual Home tomorrow.  You will love Mary Ann's blog.....her kitchen has been posted everywhere....so beautiful.  She has great taste.

25 minutes.

Weekends...gotta love em....

Sha BAM!

I think your being in a rush especially brings out your witty charm! Love all of your fabulous finds. The big chicken of course takes the cake. Your picks for Ally and Christine are spot on. I'll take the fabulous pendants please! Have a great weekend!

Fun fun fun! Looks like a ball, love those places that you never know what you will find. I could see a few fun projects in the making with some of these goodies!

barbara@hodge:podge said...

Oh the taunting....wish we had something like that close by. Sniff...{I know I say that every time you post about Scotts!}

You are really quick. I could not have downloaded the pictures and typed the descriptions in such a short amount of time. Lots of fun finds. I've hot to get back go Scottsdale. It's just such a long drive. Have a great weekend. On my way to the lake. Mona

Mona Thompson Providence Ltd. said...

Just looked back at my comment. This road is so bumpy. Couple of typos. Where did Scottsdale come from? That would be a long drive. My iPad must have filled that in for me. I typed in Scott's.

Holly said...

Those pendants are the bomb!!!! I love them. Am I the only one that doesn't like animal heads and antlers?

Privet and Holly said...

Congrats...in five
minutes you had me
smiling, laughing,
nodding and ready
to dash along with
you. Enjoy your
well-deserved weekend!

Wonder what the HOA would say about the big chicken? I would love to put in the front yard (for a week) just for one of my neighbors to enjoy! insert evil laugh

Thanks so much for being over at my place today! You certainly got some GREAT shots at Scotts. Love the lucite table and pendants. The industrial rack would look great in a ski cabin, too. Have a great weekend!

Acquired Objects said...

That show always looks like fun and those arms would make great funky sconces. The orange shelving with baskets…WANT! I’m off to check out your guest blogging, enjoy your weekend!

The Vintique Object said...

Red industrial lights. Mmmmhmmmm.

Kim@Chattafabulous said...

That is quite the roundup. Wish I could go - but thankfully there will always be pictures - which really doesn't make me feel much better..

Splendid Willow said...

Ok, where is that Scott's???? I will have to look it up presto!

I am starting to get a tad envious of your great decor stomping grounds, my friend. I might need to hop on a plane one of these days and join you. (We don't have anything even close to that in Seattle). Maybe I can talk dear Ally into joining us as well.

Mega hug to you!
