Antiquing in Texas



I recently went to Texas to visit family, eat great food, and do some antiquing! There are few better things than home-cooked southern food. Maybe a really awesome, shabby, chippy, primitive cabinet for like five dollars.. 

Anyway, I love hitting Winnie & Tulula's in Athens, Texas. It is always so beautifully curated! I find something every time. I happened to be there while they were in the middle of their spring store overhaul, so there were many empty booths..but it didn't take away from the beauty. I still found some GREAT things! Just thought I'd share a few pictures with you guys! Have a GREAT week!














Another great place we stopped at was Oxbow Bakery & Antiques in Palestine, TX. SUCH  a cute place! Have you been antiquing in Texas? Where would you recommend shopping?

Living Room Progress Report




Does anyone else have one of those rooms or just a spot that you keep changing and just can't ever seem to get it right? Well I was having this problem with my living room. Last week I posted pictures of it and asked for some help. Well there were so many helpful suggestions! The main consensus was to put a mirror above the mantel that reaches taller than my window sills and put crown molding up. Well we're looking into crown molding still but wanted to show you the changes I've made.




I moved some seating around, removed my rug and added the tall ladder. And remember this chalkboard?





Well I took the chalkboard out and replaced it with a mirror. I couldn't find a mirror large enough and had the perfect size frame, so it seemed the best option.




Well I am starting to LOVE this room! I think I'm becoming a minimalist! The more I take out, the more I like it. And I'm selling the cream hutch! (Anyone interested?) We're getting the piano that I grew up with, I'm painting it white and it will go right where the hutch is. Then I just need to find a larger scale lamp and I think then the room will be PERFECT!







So what do you think?

And if you want to head over to the previous post, I'd love your opinion on windows!
