Kauai Love

Our recent trip to Kauai,
Hawaii was amazing. With the upcoming holidays, we explored the island
searching for one of a kind finds. We had the opportunity to go to two
craft/gift fairs during our trip. We found many unique island items
such as hand craved wood, local paintings/photos, locally produced candles,
jams, spices, etc. It was so nice to experience the Hawaiian culture. It was a wonderful
beginning to our holiday season!

Tallahassee Vintage

My recent trip to Tallahassee I couldn’t believe how much
this tiny little antique store has to offer! It was packed top to bottom and
was filled with the most antique jewelry I’ve ever seen. There were so many
beautiful pearls, jems, and broaches. I also found some other items that caught
my eye. Enjoy!

Bachelorette Treasures

For one of my best friends
bridal party weekend, we headed out to west Virginia. That’s right…West Virginia.
Who knew that we would have stumbled across the cutest little holistic/antique
town ever! Berkley Springs was the cutest town that had an unexpected delight
at every corner. I didn’t buy anything, but I did take some pictures to show
the great displays and unique finds this little town had to offer. Take a ride
to a new town and explore, you never know what you’ll find!

 Yumm…deviled eggs…

 These bottles were HUGE!

Carnival Glass…

Funny…

New and Old

Willie was such a sweetheart and came down to Florida to
help my mom and I clean out my grandparent’s home. It was very hard but having
him by my side and keeping me laughing made the grueling task a bit easier. He
also pulled his weight in the 17 hour drive home!

I inherited some wonderful china. It’s just a basic white
and silver set but the fact that it was my grandmother’s is so much more
meaningful. I am currently setting up my wedding registry and a couple of people have
asked “why I don’t you get all new stuff”? My answer is that “anyone can buy new things,
to have special items in your home that come from family or just something you
find with a special person makes a huge difference in your home”.

While we were down in Fort Myers, Willie and I just happened
to stop into this consignment store called Second Chance, which is run off
donations and all profits go towards helping women have a second chance in
life. Check it out! There may something like this close to you! http://secondchanceupscaleresale.com/
We found an amazing china hutch. It was right when we walked in and it was
absolutely what we were looking for and couldn’t believe it. It seems pretty
old because the wood is very thick and it does have some repainting like it’s
been passed down for generations. Willie and I are just such pushovers for
unique and antique items J
It was $279 but 30% off so it was just at $200! You can’t find many wood
hutches for that price!

It looks amazing with it’s cute little light on right!
