SCOTT'S DECEMBER




Scott's was a little slow this month.  I noticed many vendors who are there every month to be absent.  Whaa.

On Friday while I was there......I did not have to shove anyone out of my way.....politely of course :)

One of the best things about going in December is seeing how creatively they decorate their spaces.  Usually it is just with greenery...but as we all know greenery packs a punch!


And...just as I make that observation.....I only have one picture.
And for real....this ain't so hot compared to what I have seen in blogland lately.

Of course I would not be true to myself if I did not show you pillow lavishness first. 

How many bedrooms have I done with these colors....

I am pretty sure I am a neutral girl at heart.... 


Because when I see this grouping I get goosebumps.... 


I saw these at the shop [Sudi] before they were packed up and fell in love. 


Lot's of red lately.....



Love the red, brown and gold combination. 




I dig how this one had a small piece of orange felt sewn on....

I mean seriously.....I licked....petted and talked dirty to this one.  I dare not ask how much because I know it would have been shocking...this was mohair.

 Hello basketball player chair.


 I only took this picture because it gave me the shivers.....I have such a fear of the dentist [have to be put under for anything more than a cleaning] and the thought of how primitive dentistry was at one time scares the living crap out of me.  There would have to be leather straps to hold me in that bugger.


 But all I would need is the slightest gesture to take a seat in this one :)
Palm Beach says hi.

Then I stumbled upon more mid century goodness than I have ever seen at one time.  And the prices were unbelievably reasonable.



I was thinking it all came from Florida but he said North Carolina.....so was it a colony that decided to redecorate all at once?

Yikes...somebody not only put Ken in the corner...but in a bucket.  Looks like he had a "night on the town"......straighten up there Ken.
Big old signs....always love.

In a sea of "Belgium Gray".... this stood out....in a good way you know?

 But then again.....I'm torn.


Piece of glass and you have a heck of a cool dining room table. 


Kind of cool in a weird way.... 


Here is a simple DIY....

Just throw the large baby bottle in with this vignette... 


Paint er up.....

Seriously all about these....

Another..."wish I had bought".  Why is it you see things during the month when you are NOT supposed to be buying for yourself?

Nice architectural  piece... 

Goes without saying...color and shape...BAM.

These would look good framed....duh.


Vintage Christmas in an old suitcase... 

Really nice old maps...[a la Restoration Hardware for a million dollars]



Love these old lamps....kind of like Pantone's color of the year.

 And that's all I got for ya this time.....

Just a few words about Scott's,  [I have people ask me questions all the time].  There are 2 buildings, the North [original] and the South.  The North has more antiques but it does have this cool tent in the front that has a lot of industrial finds.  The South was added a few years ago when Lakewood Antiques Show closed [the best ever....sigh].  They have a great outdoor area that I love to browse around.  Many smaller vendors with a more flea market vibe.  In my opinion you just have to do both.

 January should be a good show because they know that people will be in town for the Mart!  Just saying.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.....

Pet, licked and talk dirty??? Girl you slay me and all over mohair. I'm going to look at the rolls of mohair I have with more respect. Lots of potential kicking about there but you didn't say what you purchased?

Love all the pillows and the Ken doll made me laugh!

Henhurst Interiors said...

It has been a great morning for laughs! I have never been to Scott's - I would make a trip to Atlanta just to visit. I love those doors! Pretty sure I could do some damage there.
All best,
Phyllis

Bethany [at] Powell Brower Home said...

ok - what was ken doing there?

and i need one of those maps. and a rams head table base.

Amanda said...

more great goodies you found! Crazy over those pillows and those mohair chairs.

charmaine said...

I know what I want from Santa... a trip to Scott's! Is that too much to ask?

TSL said...

Hey girl, you know you were writing about the chair giving you the heebies? I think some things carry memories, seriously. My mother once bought an antique buffet, and when I saw it it really unnerved me, and I told her. She said strange, she'd been getting that vibe from that piece, too, of late, a real creepy vibe. Needless to say it went away. On another note, hopefully the missing vendors are off for the holidays, and not gone entirely.

TSL said...

Comment, Part 2 - oops, lest I forget, did you enter my giveaway...?

sarah said...

okay, you seriously need to contact me when you come across mid century in a "herd" like that ;)

Kat said...

Who WOULDN'T want a ginormous baby bottle...I mean really??

Mary Ann at classic•casual•home said...

Wow...I thought my pinecones were big. Funny comment about that Ken doll HA!

Anne said...

I just wanted to say that I look forward to each one of your posts. Your design sense is matched by your sense of humor and I always come away inspired and smiling. I'm getting an itch to go to Scott's and I'm in Virginia!

PURA VIDA said...

hello basketball player chair come hither to me

Holly said...

Someday, someday I will make it to Scott's - putting it on my life list :) I'm loving that herringbone fabric on the pillows too.

René said...

I'm like you - love to look at color, but could just curl up in those neutral pillows and stay there. Poor Ken, he really did have tie one on didn't he?

vreelandroad said...

Good pickins sister! Some day I'll land a fab pair of doors like those and repurpose them in chez schoenberger. Chez schoen needs some TLC in 2013!

Can't wait for Friday!
xoxo

Cindy said...

Ooooo, fun shopping with ya. Love those old doors, and i don't even like red, but i liked the red pillows, especially the one with the deer head or whatever that is on it. There is clearly alot of random weird stuff there too, which is kinda cool. The Ken doll totally looked hung over... so funny...
