Road Trippin' to Kentucky's 'finderskeepers'.....

Our next show, The Rural Society in Mt. Vernon, Ohio, is just a short two weeks away! While we're busy traveling state to state hunting down the goods Page (of Warwick Farms) and I found time to squeeze in a trip to a shop that's been on our bucket list: finderskeepers in Lexington, Kentucky. If you're in their neck of the woods be sure and stop by. Owners James Snowden and Randy Terrell have curated a striking and edited collection of beautiful finds for your home (and I would love a peek at their homes!) James was on hand the day Page and I visited and he is quite charming, wrapping up all of our treasures for us while we shopped. Enjoy the photo tour below.

Just a few pictures from the Country Living Fair...

and I literally mean just a few. In the hustle & bustle we forgot to snap photos! Thankfully, my trusty assistant Wil (yes, one L) took a few. The only photo I really wanted and missed was of my front table with these "out-of-this-world" vintage, arched, Gothic windows with they're original blue glass. They both sold on Friday. But someone did snap a photo of them and posted it on my wall on Facebook so I'll share that one first.
Loading's truly farmhouse around here, my friend's horse trailer doubles as a show trailer.
First step, tent assembly, this is tent 1 of 2 that we set up. This bad boy has been through rain, blistering sun, tornadoes (2010) and winds from Hurricane Ike (2008). He's still holding up surprisingly. (Just don't watch us when we take it's quite comical because by the time Sunday evening rolls around we're all mush and no one can keep a straight train of disassembling a structure should be off limits.)
Everything gets unloaded and placed "on deck" until the furniture pieces are set in place under the tent.
The piles of treasures we brought seemed to grow in the trailer on the way there!

We restocked every morning but come Sunday there wasn't much to restock with and as mentioned earlier...we were zombies. So much fun had by us and hopefully all who attended. This fair is such an amazing collection of UBER TALENTED men and women, if you haven't been to one yet plan on it ASAP! Atlanta is next month (we'll be in Mt Vernon, Ohio October 14 & 15 for The Rural Society Show) and another has been planned for Austin, Texas in April or May of 2012.

If you took pictures of anything at the fair we would love to see them! Please also comment and share about any treasures you found.

Pam Pierce...a new favorite

I just recently discovered Houston designer Pam Pierce via Veranda magazine and I am loving her aesthetic. Her clean, classic and edited hand allow the textures and details of beautiful pieces play off each other seamlessly. Enjoy!
