Remember when I shared that I was at Las Vegas Market in July
to moderate a panel discussion?
It was so much fun. The girls I spoke with laughed and laughed the whole time.
We were talking about something we all loved- vintage pieces and how to decorate with them.
We relived our favorite treasure hunts, the times we knocked a few people over as we scrambled to secure that prize we spotted over the corner and even shared some of our most favorite finds.
Mine were all those unexpected finds mostly. The ones that I gravitated towards that I had no idea I even needed. Until I realized… I neeeeeeeded them.
Like these lights… and mirrors.
After the panel discussion- I did what any other vintage loving girl would do- I shopped the vintage treasures at Market. Shopping out in the pavilions for vintage is something I always love doing at Market. You might remember the bargain basket I bought and shipped back. The $30 french basket became a $150 basket… but hey- I love it even so. But the best part about shopping this time? My son was driving over to Vegas to visit my oldest son the next week. In an SUV. Which meant…. I could load it up. So what did I buy?
I started with a few simple things- chippy old buckets. I have a weakness for anything chippy, painted, vintage and charming- these checked off all of the list.
The hardest part was choosing the colors. I went with vintage blue and vintage green- and a soft putty gray/slate blue.
Another laundry basket
Because… I had to redeem myself and get a $30 laundry basket- for $30. haha. I placed it under the island for a few photos- but not sure where it will land just yet.
A dough bowl
I found a huge dough bowl that would be perfect for a couple of stylings coming up- and at $50- it was in the pile. (photo coming soon)
French Cutting Board
It was huge. Covered in old patina. And perfect for stacking on the counter or placing on a table for a cheese and fruit platter for 50 people. I haven’t done much other than stack it yet- but am loving the old dark wood it brings to the mix of the others- and it is HUGE. Ridiculous huge really.
I might have been obsessed with buckets and patina this trip. You will see more of this bucket on Wednesday in my living room tour.
Aside from those Vegas Market treasures- I also got a delivery of vintage treasures from Eloquence last week. And I am more than in love. I haven’t gotten them all set up yet- but one thing I did snap a photo of was this gorgeous patina on these doors. Serious love.
and these hand painted beauties.
I will share where all of these pretty pieces landed soon.
Moving a bit slow after that tumble I mentioned yesterday-
and thank you for all your kind messages.
The quick update is- I have a crazy busy week ahead and
after staring at the yuck that the road rash on my shoulder looked like…
I decided I should probably get it looked at.
Went to urgent care yesterday- and yep, it is infected.
And an allergic reaction to the neosporin which is making me crazy itchy.
Because… why not?
I told the Dr. that if someone had caught me on video
enthusiastically running downhill,
(think horse almost to the barn enthusiastic)
and then… my ankle rolling,
me trying to catch myself for several feet in the gravel
and then tumbling and sliding on my shoulder and face
and breaking my sunglasses (which cut my face)
but likely saved me from much worse damage
and then me hobbling the rest of the way to the house with a twisted ankle…
Well, that the video probably would have gone viral on Youtube
for one of those ‘fall’ compilations.
But- I am honestly thankful the damage was not worse.
And this is the worst I have sprained my ankle in YEARS.
And I am looking forward to hopefully getting back in the running saddle again in another week or two but yeah, even when my ankle is all good-don’t think I will be running down
that hill anymore.
