New Items in my ETSY Shop

March 15, 2010 at 6:11 AM 3 comments

This past weekend, I went to an estate sale in one of the most beautiful suburbs of Chicago.  It seemed like the suburb and house from “Home Alone.”  Needless to say, they had some beautiful pieces for sale; I wanted to take all of the furniture home with me but I had to leave it all there.  Here are pictures of what I found; they are up on my ETSY site now….

My first love are these three candlesticks.  I adore blue and white rooms and I thought one could use a chic addition such as these.  I imagine them on a bookshelf, side table or a massive white carrera marble kitchen island.

You can find these candlesticks here.

My next love that I happened upon was the letter “H” as a paperweight.  I am very into monograms, even though I don’t own many things monogrammed. But I am a sucker for the preppy look.  However, I found this paperweight to be more sophisticated then preppy because it is gold plated.  I would love to have this on a desk to bring some glam to a working day.  I don’t even think you need to have the letter H in your initials; H could stand for home.

This item is up on my ETSY site, click here for more details.

I did pick up some more loves at the estate sale but I am waiting until I have my shadow box built so that I can take better quality pictures.  But the above items are my favorites.

Besides shopping, I was working my newly acquired DIY muscles by sanding, painting and upholstering a bench which I transformed into an ottoman.

Here is the before…

And the after

This is also for sale on my ETSY site, click here for viewing. I plan to make matching pillows soon.

What do you think?
