Went to a huge estate sale the other day, but it was a disappointment for me as I expected to come home with a cartful of goodies (not for my husband, though, who was so happy I didn’t come home with a trailer attached). I can say that there was an enormous amount of stuff, but it was mostly tables full of broken or chipped crystal and china.
However, I did score these sweet little bottles (above) for my windowsill (or I may sell them in my Country Tag Sale shop -- not quite sure yet, but don’t you love the color?)
I also bought this pretty china plate, which I quickly converted into a cake plate with the help of some Gorilla Super glue and an iron candlestick I bought at a previous yard sale. Did I ever tell you that I have a “thing” for cake plates?
On another note, I went to the Annapolis Home Show as part of my job (home and garden editor for What’s Up Annapolis magazine) and got to interview Summer Baltzer from HGTV’s Design on a Dime and TLC’s Unhinged. She was gracious enough to grant me about an hour of her time to share some design trends and insight with me. I’ll be sharing some of her wisdom on this very blog in the next few days! So, stay tuned for the latest design trends from someone who knows.
