Modern girl!

Hopefully blogger is our friend today. 
I had to step away yesterday and am returning now to see how it goes.
So a modern girl in decor I am not! 
In fact, most of the the decor we have is OLD, and of sentiment.  You know that already if you have been my friend for a while.

Don't get me wrong, I appreciate all styles, and I know certainly mine is not for everyone either. It works for us. 
Old books, and my Grandfathers Rosary beads
Today Mr. was off  and we went out for lunch to have a little Thai food.YUM! 
On the way back we decided we would hit some antique stores we have not been in for a while.
Well...let me tell you it was a lucky day indeed for us.
Cool hardware. Knotty pine, very sturdy solid piece.
 For now I just created this vignette, but not sure if I love it.
I have been looking for a phone table for the family room.  I hate the phone on the kitchen counter, and the family room had a phone jack on a small wall. Obviously meant for a phone table.

I think it was made for this wall.
The best part about it for me, is that it reminds me of my Grandmother's kitchen set, which is exactly like this. 
My sister has the set and it is awesome! 

And what is this next piece you are asking?
Do you know what it is?
I can't wait to show you what we do with it.
There are two of these, and I literally stopped dead in my tracks...I knew exactly what I wanted to do, and told MIKE, without hesitation (first looking at the price of course) he agreed.
These are over 100 years old, solid wood, beautiful detail.
SCORE for both
$125.00 TOTAL!
Oh I just have to share this picture of Lucy with you...she hardly ever lays on her antique bed..but today she did!


NEWBIE party still going on

I think blogger is being much more friendly today. I almost fell out when I saw your post because I just logged on to blog a bit before watching Oprah's last show. I am sitting down with a treat bag that I just made of...m&m's, peanuts, and raisins. haha! Seriously! How funny is that? Love your new phone table it does fit that wall perfectly! I do indeed also know what those other two items are and cannot wait to see how you will use them..sounds like a wonderful afternoon out! :)

Oh my God!!! Someone that likes wood, and doesn't feel the irresistible urge to paint it!! I was beginning to feel alone on the planet! I love that small table, and it indeed looks like it was made for that space.
I have no idea what those beautiful thingies are, so I will keep an eye on you to see what comes of them!

Sounds like you were having blogger issues yesterday too. I thought maybe it was just me, you are the only other issue I have heard of. Love the furniture arrangement, so nice to have the family pieces that you can incorporate. Fab:)

Sounds like you and Mike had a great day together. What fabulous finds! I agree, the cabinet is perfect for that wall. I cannot wait to see what you do with your other two items. Lucy looks like a little diva on her chaise lounge.

That cabinet reminds me of my grandmother's kitchen cabinets. Great piece. Hmmmm, what are you going to do with the other pieces?

Strange, I've had no problems with blogger? then again, I haven't had a chance to visit many blogs this week! But I've left comments today ok.
Can't wait to see what that is and what you're gonna do with two of them ;)

Debbie, your new cabinet is perfect for you! Many kitchens in the 50's had that color pine cabinets...my mom's kitchen cabinets were exactly like it until she remodeled in the 70's. I love the cornice window valances(?)! At least that's what they look like! Can't wait to see what you do with them!

May 25, 2011 at 5:18 PM  
Blogger Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

Love that knotty pine cabinet! What a find for sure! Hmmm . . . my first guess on those two pieces was cornice but now I'm not sure. And might I say that that is the most adorable picture of your puppy!??

Wow you did score some good things at the antique places! The cabinet is perfect! and I'll wait to see what the other two will be:) Blogger gave me hassle for about a day and a half as well but seems to be my friend again :) Have a great evening!

Love the cabinet and it is just perfect for the wall. I love the vignette also. The mirror is perfect above it too. Pretty and storage to boot. Now I can't wait to see what you do with the other two pieces. Hugs, Marty

Another fun post. Glad to see you step away. Blogger is acting up for me today on the commenting part. Keeps signing me out. Hope this gets there.

I do believe that cabinet was made for that wall...it fits perfectly.
Whatever those other pieces are, they look like cornices, I can only imagine what you're going to do with them! They remind me of something that came out of a very old & elaborate theater.

You scored with these treasures! The table looks great where it is. Do you think you will eventually paint it? j/k

Debbie, I just learned a trick from another blogger. When you get to the Google page you UNcheck the box that says "Stay signed in" and it then takes you into your account. Such weirdness!

Hey Deb- Your new knotty pine table has just the right amount of "rustic" and it looks great in that spot. :-) Now that other item looks a bit like a fancy wooden valance, or am I just seeing things? Can't wait to hear what your plan is for them. It's storming here and I am wide awake! Wish this bad weather would stop and summer would arrive. Did we even HAVE a spring?

I love the cabinet and your floor plan.

Lucy has a very cute antique bed.

Debbie, I think the piece looks perfect on the wall. Awesome! I also like the sweet candy dish. You can take so many things that are so different, and it works. You have the gift, my friend!!!

Lucy is adorable! My sweet pug, Bobby, is coming to visit in a couple of weeks. Are those items window valances? If I had a window they fit, I would use them for valences or make two awesome shelves. HMMMMM.
Just waiting to see what you do. Hugs, Ginger
