Scott's January

It has been a busy week around here.  With Scott's on Thursday and the Mart on Friday and Saturday, I have been a picture taking fool.  Sadly, my home looks like a war zone.  I have been meaning to start getting it purdy since the holidays are over but for me that takes some meds dedication.  

I just got the wreath off the door and felt OK about that when I was walking my dog the other day and saw that someone still had the tree up AND the lights on.  Really?  I would not turn on the lights.  Dead giveaway.  So what is the cutoff date on that sort of thing anyway?????

Let me just say how pissed off I am reading about all you type A's who are organizing, painting, cleaning closets already.  Dang it y'all I am serious when I say that there should be at least a 2-3 week grace period before we start overhauling everything.

OK...enough about me and my inefficient abilities to run with the pack.

Here are some great pictures to make you squirm.


I should have bought this....original travel stickers on an old suitcase.  So cool.  Why did we stop doing that to our suitcases anyway???  Oh yeah that's right.  They won't stick on fabric.

OK all you craft DIY people....take the drop-clothe and cut up, then sew together.  Upholster.


Closeup....
One more shot.


Chairs...a REAL addiction.  Seriously.  I know you guys can testify to this.
So my new client has 2 of these in her house....I told her to paint.....here is the proof.


If you are an artist...knock yourself out!  Love the gray background.
2 huge pots....like $150 for both???

Beautiful gilded chair.

Mid Century beauty......

Garden seats.  Tangerine.  I am torn about the color of the year....I think they should have gone with green.

It's blue that's why.

Turquoise and pink......bring it.

Sometimes I like to take pictures of pretty vignettes.  This was one.

More Mid Century madness.....

Just these colors....Turquoise and lavender.......loving.

This is a great handmade table.....


Same booth.... and more art

Here is the info....for art and table.

And some great handmade headboards....in America!

And the info.

Oy Vey.....me likey.

Could go nicely with the Palm Beach theme of my giveaway!!!

More chair crack.

Remember I saw these last month?    Well here they are and they brought all of their cousins.  Only thing was I could not find the "booth owner".....which by the way is my pet peeve.  Seriously....are you here to sell stuff or walk around and chit chat with people????
Another little gem that I wanted...again...no one in the booth.

When I look for second hand wing chairs, I always like them to have a straight leg......easier if you intend to put a skirt on them.

Again....No. One. In. The. Booth.  I am feeling murderous by now.

Did I just crawl out from under a rock?????  I have never seen a ceiling medallion this shape before.

I also saw this dude.....Ryan Gainey.  He is "world renown" as a garden designer.  I asked if I could snap a picture.  He said yes....as he looked away.  Then he asked me if I was a jewelry designer?  Huh?  Uh no....
OK then as he completely looked away.  I wanted to say....but I am a "world renown" blogger dude!  So back the F**** up or I will cut you right here in Scott's.

Yeah...I am just talking big here.  We all know I am a wuss.

I have a few more...pillows and fabric, but must run out and get a birthday present for a 1 year old.  I have no earthly idea what to get.  Don't the parents get a present for surviving 1 year??????

Have a Sunday that makes you REALLY appreciate the tail end of the weekend.

Don't forget about the Palm Beach giveaway.....


Maybe I will organize a closet or something.....NOT.

Ha ha! So I haven't seen Ryan Gainey is a few years and I guess he finally gave up that lizard green cloak for turquoise accessories. Its definitely an improvement!

Lisa Mende Design said...

I always enjoy your visits to Scotts and your awesome humor! Thanks for making me smile and motivating me this Sunday!

Emily A. Clark said...

Fun times! Some serious food for thought--especially that Ikat headboard. Dang! Just when I thought I had a plan for the girls' room; now, I'm totally thrown off.

And, that guy with the man purse may be famous but all of his turquoise jewelry is creeping me out.

Kelly said...

I've never heard of Ryan Gainey, but then again, I'm not into gardening as much as I am into decorating. He is one interesting looking fellow! Your little comment about him had me laughing! I noticed the last time I went to Scott's that there were booth owners missing in action too. It makes me very angry. I think someone should be there at all times!

Travis said...

Such beautiful things, I'm not sure if I like those drop cloth chairs or not...that little gilded number sure would look pretty in someone's newly organized closet.

The enchanted home said...

So funny....love your "tude" with the "dude" (and what a dude he is...oh my looks like a proud peacock struttin his stuff, lol) So much to see...LOVE those nightstands and many of the chairs, the painted chandelier, so many things to love. Bet it was a blast!

An Urban Cottage said...

Now I know why I can't find any freaking chairs. They'll all at Scott's. Don't care for the hobo patchwork upholstery but I'd sure like to have those first chairs. The ikat headboard is a sex kitten.

Deserae said...

Wow, so many great goodies! I am totally in love with that patchwork (drop cloth) chair :o)
Have a great week!!!

Beth said...

ohhh, I laugh so hard, mainly cause I understand the sub-culture going on at Scott's....that Gainey guy....you shoulda cut him...JK! As always, I know I can get my giggle from ya! Almost forgot, Burlap Street Headboards are the bomb!!

Kerry @ Design du Monde said...

Ugh, I guess its a good thing I don't live nearby. It would just make the post-holiday bank account hangover worse. I seriously could have bought and loved just about everything here.

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

I loved that majolica plate. Roared laughing at the dude moment! Pleezzz~

Lauren@BaylorSays... said...

Okay, now I can picture what you're doing...I go to a flea market in my husband's hometown and its a bunch of booths and nobody is ever in their booth! Sometimes they're not even on the premises. But it is JUUUUNK with maybe one decent find...it's no Scott's.

Can I just say what a HERO you would be if you brought a present for the parents instead of the 1 yr old? We don't want any more toys dear God make the toys stop.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

I recognized the headboards from Burlap Street as soon as I saw them. I just found their blog yesterday when they started following me. They also have a brand new booth at Sandy Springs Design Center.

Anna@MyDesignEthos said...

SO jealous of all those amazing finds. I can never get anything like that here and would kill someone for some of those chairs! :)

Holly said...

A big woo woo for made in USA and beautiful headboards I might add - I'd take one and I need one - ha!

a' la mode said...

oh MAN! Wish I coulda gone.......I've seen that dude before and had no clue who he was....i probably woulda said 'nice MURSE buddy." xoxo shel

Kim@Chattafabulous said...

Sherry, I think I saw a guest house or garden shed of Ryan Gainey's in a design mag not too long ago. It was pretty cool and I must say he has a definite point of view going on there!

pam {simple details} said...

Thanks for taking us along your Scott's trips, love that headboard! I read ikat is out, really? I still love it! I think you did a post without a pillow, seriously??

Linda in AZ * said...

*** Your mention of "that Garden guy" (?) just cracked me up!!! I LOVE a GR888 SENSE of HUMOR, and girlfriend, you DEFINITELY shared it here.... with us... MANY THANKS!!!

Best in 2012,

***(P.S. As a "semi-collector" of turquoise jewelry, I MUST ADMIT he has some N*I*C*E pieces on!!! Linda ***

Linda said...

Sherry Baby! dude says..."are you a jewelry designer?" you say, "no. Thief!" Your retell cracked me up!!!
Chair crack - don't come to my garage: two pair and a single in various states of repair - one was free, (neighbors garbage) paid no more than $28 each for the others. This may be chair meth.
Check out my post on our entry ceiling medallion to see how to find rectangular shapes.
Please don't sweat the gals who get busy this time of year - our tree is down, but that's it.
Cheers!

lisaroyhandbags said...

Quite the dude!
love all of the goodies - those marble topped tables were pretty fab and seriously, who doesn't go gaga for chairs?? :)

Anonymous said...

I saw Ryan the minute I walked in the door. What a freak but he is amazingly talented. If you want to see his garden, it's always on the Decatur Garden Tour. It will knock your socks off.

I must say I was underwhelmed with the showing at Scott's Thursday morning. I thought it would be a huge. You clearly have a better eye than I do and maybe I just got there too early.

Burlap Street said...

Sherry, I cant believe the gardner dude didnt know who you were, my sister told me you came by our booth and i had gone to get something to eat and I missed you. I was crushed! It was like Diane Keaton could have come by and I wouldnt have been more excited..I asked my sister what you had on and she told me something kelly green, so i spent the rest of the day having Sherry spottings...I also hate when I cant find the owner of a booth and I hate when everything is not priced. Please come back by next month so I can get a picture of you! P.S. your blog cracks us up because laughing is pretty much our favorite thing to do!

Carrie @ Hazardous Design said...

Oh my! Great stuff here. Loved the painted chandelier, the bamboo chandelier, the art, the rug, omg...that rug!

Taylor Greenwalt said...

I so want to go to Scotts..I am not sure I could explain that to the hubby. Your going where, for what! From California!

Janell @ Isabella and Max said...

Too many fabulous things, the wheat chandelier, the blue bench. My house would be in serious trouble if I lived near here.

Sam @ My Carolina Kitchen said...

Sherry, your writing style always brings a smile to my face and is a great way to start the day.

What an interesting looking fellow. Clever you recognized him.
Sam

Kelly@Bungalow Blue said...

That gray-painted chandelier is gorge!

Carmel @ Our Fifth House said...

I think the rule should be - if you're not at your booth your stuff is free. ;) Maybe that man thought you wanted to take a pic of him because you liked his jewelry? All I know is if I lived anywhere near that place I would be broke as a dang joke!

classic • casual • home said...

You crack me up...yes, my closet is organized...but I never decorated much for Christmas (no wreath even) so it wasn't hard. I love that head board. Great frame and you could change the fabric down the road if you want (although the neutral ikat is great).

Carla Aston said...

Oh, some great finds here! What fun. I went outlet shopping this weekend. It's always great to find a bargain!

So disappointed about your comment about Ryan Gainey, he is one of the most talented Landscape Architects in the world, his work continues to be published on a national scale, and he has worked on some of the most prestigious gardens in the world. Seriously, what puts anyone in a postion to treat someone who is gracious, talented and generous with such disdain? Just because he dresses or acts differently? The comments that resulted from your post about him, are mean-spirited and unnecessary, his eccentricities are in fact endearing if you took the time to get to know him. He is an amazing talent, and so undeserving of such blatant disrespect. We are each unique in our own way, and its sad that you find it necessary to criticize someone for being different, and hopefully in the future you will not use your blog posts as a forum to bully those individuals who maybe march to the "sound of their own drums." We live in a society that is so quick to judge others, and I don't think it's necessary to perpetuate this. I think you owe Mr. Gainey an apology. I have known him for years and he is a kind and generous soul who is beyond talented, torquoise jewelry or not.

Eclectically Vintage said...

Wish I could have been - when I lived in OH, I loved going to Scotts but I know Atlanta is much bigger. Glad you didn't have to cut that guy!

I have to agree with anonoymous who seemed as disturbed by your comments about Ryan Gainey as I did. The two things that can kill a career fast is lack of humility and over inflated ego, which you seem to have alot of. Your a "world famous" blogger who thinks that she can "cut" someone as mega-famous as Ryan Gainey? Wow!! What are you 12? You'll be lucky enough to lick his shoe after those comments. My friends and I use to follow your blog, but your ego is going to end up bigger than your fan base. So you can count your fan base about 6 people less...Lynn Rowe

Lou Cinda @ Tattered Hydrangeas said...

Mr. Gainey looks a little like a goober....and sounds like a snobby goober at that....just sayin'

I have cleaned out every closet in my house...filled up my garbage cans TWICE! WHY do I keep sp much crap??? But I am done now....ready to move on...

A trip to Scotts is in the works...

Lori @ Lori May Interiors said...

I agree with Emily, world renowned or not, he totally weirds me out!

I love the artwork though. I found some amazing things at Scott's last weekend too. I even took Eric back with me on Saturday to pick up a few things. Very different clientele on the weekend...

Thanks for the contact info. I missed the booth with the fabulous turquoise artwork!

shannon said...

Sha Ray--I think you should have left the wreath up and stuck red hearts in it. You would have been ahead of the game! As for your finds at Scott's--good gravy, I need to get back there! There are so many things I saw that I need and I love that you gave us contact #'s. I love your crazy dude spotting and we all know that your comments are 'tongue in cheek' and not serious. You make us laugh and that's what we love about you!

Hyphen Interiors said...

Hilarious post! Loved the photos. My favs were the headboards and that table!

Designs By Pinky said...

From your 4 or 5 sentences about Mr. Gainey, Anonymous went on a TIRADE????? What is up with that??? I didn't get a mean or nasty vibe from you at ALL!!!!!!!!! Good LORD!!!!

Barbara Bussey {The Treasured Home} said...

I can see why Tina enjoys your humor...you're a hoot! Had me laughing. RG needs to have an extreme makeover. There's one thing about testing the waters and then there's just plain falling into the lake! Somebody, give that fur trimmed thing back to the dude with spinners on his car and platform shoes on his feet!

Velvet and Linen said...

We didn't have a chance to go to Scott's until Saturday afternoon, so we missed you :(
Looks like you had a fun time and met some interesting people!

Hopefully we will bump into each other next time. Maybe we can take a picture together. I promise to look into the camera and smile!

Rosa @ FlutterFlutter said...

If it makes you feel any better, it's taken me all week to get organized enough to write a post about being organized! ;)

Jessie said...

Love that beautiful ikat headboard and those marble top night stands. Gorgeous finds as usual.

Happy weekend!

I just wanted to say that I read your blog for two main reasons; 1) You are real - as in funny, you don't take yourself too seriously - hallelujah! 2) You have REAL content on your blog - as in YOU actually DO STUFF! You don't just re-post thousands of pretty rooms from the interweb. Lastly, I know who YOU are but I had never heard of Ryan Gainey... and I AM into gardening! As for your comments about Ryan Gainey, you didn't really say anything. Certainly nothing to apologize about. As for your readers comments about him, being a 'world renown garden design architect', I am sure he has 'heard it all before'!! Bottom line is, you don't dress like that unless you want attention - good or bad. Don't be sorry, just be you :D

Anonymous said...

I agree with the other two anon replies very rude of you, he looks like a nice man..... Let's see what you are like when you are his age. Cindy

Anonymous said...

That is quite a get up on Ryan Gainey. Don't be offended - everyone I know who has ever crossed paths with him has had a similar experience. He just acts like that.

Bri@Meyouandawiener said...

Gangster Sherry came out. Man purse dude should have paid you to take his picture, he hurt my eyes. Which are no bleeding.

I used to work at a local hardware store in Decatur, GA where Ryan Gainey was a regular customer. That man is a huge farce to the world of garden design! He would get advice from the store's garden department managers all the time. I seriously question his actual authority on his own supposed subject matter. Oh, and top of him being a general pompous ass-hat, he's a habitual shoplifter and would make sexually inappropriate comments to an obviously underage male employee. He's a fake and a scumbag. Don't waste any more of your time if you see him around again.
