Don't hate us or be too jealous, but this is a pic of Siesta Key Beach in Florida, where we spent a few hours visiting last week on our mini escape trip. We went to Antique/vintage shops for ideas, inspiration, and hit a few flea market events. With the chillier-than-usual temperatures even in the south this winter, there wasn't as much going on as we'd hoped for. But, we had two gorgeous days that reached into the mid-70's right before we left. We brought a few of our finds home to the shop this week, including some glass bead earrings (new, not vintage), linens, and a sweet wall picture. If we weren't flying home, there were several larger pieces we would have loved to bring along. A better plan for storage/delivery is needed for next time!
Here is one of the items we found in Fl. & were able to bring back to the shop- an adorable framed print of a vintage/victorian girl holding a bouquet of roses. The matting is dark green and the frame is gold etched. This one is getting lots of looks already...probably won't last long.
