MORE SCOTT'S




OK...just a little more.  I am not trying to be mean....but this month was one for the record.

Raise your hand if you do not like big mirrors.  No one....I thought so.

Or big frames....

Just look at this crusty goodness.....
Crustiness is good on mirrors...not so good in a bellybutton...just sayin.... 

Miami condo circa 1970.  But I still want.

For crying out loud.

Moss and concrete go together like Donny and Marie.
I really wanted this.....blue...check.  crusty....check.  industrial metal....check.  No where to put.....bummer.

Just the hardware please.....
Are you ready for some color?

On a nice Belgium linen sofa....
On a nice Belgium linen sofa.....yeah.....pretty much everything looks good on one.

Got some old lace...put it on a pillow.
Very "Rachel Ashwell" but I likey.  I think it is the BLUE.  I'm cursed.

Paint some stripes.

 A gazillion green chairs.

Need a big yellow pepper?  Who buys this stuff????

And I finally met Kendall Boggs.  She is so nice and I love her art. In fact she is having a giveaway on her blog right now....so run on.


Your kidding right?  55.00 each.

Yes....Scott's was great.  But did I find a coffee table for my porch project?  Uh that would be a big fat NO.  So I am out today and must find one.  

I went to Miami Circle [a design area with ton's of stores] yesterday.  I searched.  Nothing....but do have some great pictures to show you.  Silver lining.  

Sha Ray baby....


* no news on my Patches yet but hopefully the end of the week.  "For the love of God...." as one of my friends put it.
Pin It!

take me with you to this southern wonderland, sherry! i am sold. i'm serious. i have not had the itch to do the flea market thing lately. frames and mirrors. they're like crack.

question about my giant dough bowl: it still smells musty after a thorough cleaning, soaping, dehumidifying, and basking in the sun. think there's any hope?

love kendall's art!

I need to do a little bit of map-questing, rent a truck.....oops...better talk to J, first. Would love an up close look at Scott's.

Jae said...

fabuloso. that gold framed distressed mirror is awesome.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Oh, I have a place for that blue, rusty crusty piece, but did not see it.

PURA VIDA said...

why ya gotta be so mean?

Acquired Objects said...

Ok your mission should you decide to accept it....go back and get that crusty frame and that Italian mirror now!!!! Me wants!

Why does it always take so long to figure out what's wrong with pets or humans. I guess that's why they call it PRACTICING medicine!

Scotts looks sooo great~I love your descriptions and hey, nothing wrong with anything "Rache Ashwell-ish" in my book!!

NanaDiana said...

Scotts has my vote as the place to visit. I love it and really love that R Ashwell set...wow. I would have been gawking all over the place at everything there was to see there- xo Diana

Taylor Greenwalt said...

I am dieing over those pillows. I have a long shopping list that you could take with you for me.....Please!

Splendid Sass said...

Dangerous territory you are talking about, Sherry! Money gone!
Love these frames and mirrors.
Happy Tuesday.

This is some crazy goodness! What, so you didn't have a place for that piece...that never stops me. Just check my garage, and don't tell my husband.

Whitney @ Drab to Fab Design said...

I am drooling over everything, except for the pepper!

Jill said...

You didn't get the name of the vendor with the intaglios did you? I'm sure they are gone at that price though! They would look great in my foyer!

Nancy said...

Oh man, I wish there was a place like Scott's in my hood..what glorious stuff..on all your posts.
Praying for Patches..hang in there.

Elizabeth @ The Little Black Door said...

I want to go shopping with you! :)

Interior Design Musings said...

Two girls on our bus snagged those intaglios! That was a total steal on those! M.

AntiqueChase said...

OMGosh I love almost everything except the pepper :)

Kirsten Krason said...

I love all this stuff but I am really digging those pillows.

Holly said...

I'm not a purple gal by any means, but those purple pillows are really fun.

Diana @ Your Day Simplified said...

I'm so jealous that you are so close to such an amazing store! I saw a patio set painted medium-hot pink and it was amazing so I am right there with you about the blue set! Yum!

maternity bridesmaid dresses said...

These are amazing!Really love those things!

Victoria said...

Love the big mirrors, love the frames, I even love Donnie and Marie -- not the real ones, the concrete and moss. I am so jealous you live so close to this great flea market. The ones near me only sell tube socks.
I am sending positive thoughts your way for Patches and for a good week.
Best...Victoria

Mar said...

Confess - you bought that big yellow pepper. Kidding; thanks for sharing the photos of Scotts- I love to see the pics of these kinds of places. Jealous.

Christy said...

Oh wish I was there this past month! Too bad I was in Europe :) I'm hoping to stop by Scott's in May. Would love to run into you!!!

Privet and Holly said...

Gosh, girlie, you SO
make me smile and
chuckle! I am finding
more and more that
I go to fleas and love
things, yet leave empty
handed. Trying to live
more lightly? Or just
realizing that I can love
it and still pass it by?
Not certain, but I sure
enjoy a virtual stroll
with you : ) Hope that
sweet Patches get the
diagnosis, soon, and that
all is WELL!

Just found your blog. OMG this post is almost too much to handle. Instant follow!

Michelle @ Ten June said...

Wow, there really was a ton of great stuff! I would have snatched up that industrial cabinet as a kitchen island! Love.

Sheila said...

I have a big mirror similar to those shown that I bought on Craigslist. It is incredibly beautiful, got it for a steal, and now I don't have a clue where to put it. I need decorating therapy.

I love when you take us shopping with you, so fun!!
