Last week, I helped a friend with an estate sale she was running in our local area.  What an eye-opener, by the way!  I've been to plenty of estate sales in the past, but really had no idea how much work goes into sorting, cleaning, staging, and pricing items.

That sounds so … [Read more...]

Remember when I scored this great bergere chair for $20 at the thrift shop?  I love the sassy shape and French lines of bergere chairs, but obviously this girl was going to need new fabric! I went back and forth over whether or not I wanted to go with a solid or a print, but as long as my husband … [Read more...]

February is around the corner, and the days are still short and dark (yuck), so I've added some color to the living room. The blue and white lamp that's been here for ages has moved to my office, and this new (to me) brass lamp has taken its place.  Funny story--I bought it at my favorite … [Read more...]
