Our Take on the Brimfield Flea Market...

Hey there!
 
Even though I grew up just a little bit away from Brimfield it wasn't something I frequented as a child, or as an adult, for that matter. In fact, this past weekend was only the second time I have ever gone.
 
If you've never been we would completely encourage you to go. It's such a unique experience filled with awesome vintage and antique pieces and tons of curiosities.

Black Painted Chair & Where I Get My Inspiration From

One of the pieces we picked up on our trip to Rhode Island (you can read all about that here), was this classic wooden chair.
 
I had been looking for something similar to this for a little bit and the price, quality and style of this one fit the bill. For the record, I paid about $20 and it is a solid piece originally made in Gardner, Massachusetts. Whenever I find pieces from Garner they are always super well built.

Updated 70's Nighstand & Why You Should Buy These Old Pieces

You know what? I'm kind of in love with this piece.
 
Once I find furniture I typically move pretty quickly to get it redone and either put in my own home or listed for sale.
 
This table...I've had it since the beginning of tag sale season...last year! I think it waited more than long enough for its transformation.

Spring Touches & Contributor Post

Spring is one of my very favorite times of the year (and not just because I have an April birthday)! I love how the weather gets warmer, the days get longer (seriously, the getting dark at like 4:30 in the afternoon during the winter gets old really, really fast), and the light and bright colors of the season.
 
This year, I added just a few spring touches to our home. I'm trying to keep things neutral and uncluttered since I'm really looking to sell and will be listing very soon.
 
I filled a vintage card catalogue drawer with plants...

Road Tripping (& Furniture Buying) in Rhode Island

Morning friends!
 
A couple of weeks ago we spent the day traveling through Rhode Island hunting down furniture for my painting business (and, of course, a couple little pieces for ourselves).
 
Typically, when I think of Rhode Island, I think of Newport or the beach, but they have some pretty amazing antique/junk/consignment shops further up in the state that we absolutely fell in love with. We have definite plans to travel there again (seriously it is just about 1.5 hours from Western Massachusetts so totally doable) to revisit our favorites and check out some more along the way.
 
Now, truth be told, I had no intentions of even posting about this. I know. Crazy. I'm always trying to finish things here at home or complete and stage a new furniture piece to share with you and I just never end up posting. My boyfriend and I were talking about blogging the other day and he truly thought I should be sharing more about just everyday and all these cool adventures we go on. I couldn't agree more. So in the future. I actually plan to take more than like two pictures and really show you these amazing places we find.
 
We started our trip in Pawtucket at the Rhode Island Antiques Mall. I love this place. Seriously. There is so much to look at. And so much I personally wanted!
