For those of you who are new, you may not know this, but I love 20th century vintage and anything antique. I love the original, the handmade, and all things that have lived with intention and authenticity. And if I'm not careful, my home becomes overloaded with it - so I have to edit every so often. Thus, the need for my little booth.
My booth is a place where I get to share the things I love and a place where I can pass on old finds as I acquire new ones. It's the cycle of life, and that cycle is what collecting is all about.
Here's what's happening at the Queen
A trio of Italian decanters. I'm so in love with these colorful pieces of glass right now. I have one lonely one at home. I think he needs these friends; but I'm trying to resist the temptation.
They're resting on this lovely Regency-style bamboo shelf. I was so tempted to paint this shelf a great shade of orange. I resisted; however, I think it would look awesome painted-just for a great pop of color without overwhelming a room. What do you think? I'm so tempted to carry it back home + paint it...
And those of you who know me know that I have a real weakness for bar carts. They are such a perfect accessory no matter where they're placed. Again, a Regency-style bamboo design - love!
And a couple of sets of vintage barware complete the set.
I always keep a little corner of industrial goodness for some additional awesomeness
I picked up this pair of handblown orb vases recently. Love their organic look.
And this pair of green metal chairs. Although they may not look like it, they are amazingly comfortable - I guess they needed to be as these are identified as hospital chairs from Tennessee. They look great sitting with my latest crush
An uber cool pedestal dining table with oval smoke glass top. Nothing more needs to be said here. Just soak in the love...
Soak it in...
I love this little slice of my life as much as any. It's all the things that make my heart happy!!!
