It's been a whirlwind few days here on the farm, so forgive us for the time away! Both Jaithan and I have just been so busy with the store, hosting our dear friends Seleta and Peter for the weekend, as well as various projects, including a spring-inspired dining room I'm doing for the New Orleans Home & Garden Show this weekend. Much more on that tomorrow! In the meantime, here's a little recap of the flea market shopping trip with all our fun, new friends who came out to see us at the Rose Bowl this month.

It really was such a great group of people! And the weather—sunny and warm, perfect for all that digging we did together.  


One booth had an especially good assortment of vintage furniture and lighting. In fact, as soon as I saw this pair of gorgeous Hollywood Regency lamps, I knew I wanted to point them out to the group. To start, they were such a great scale and that blue was so spectacular—very Dorothy Draper. A good clean was all they needed, I told the group, and perhaps even the addition of a Lucite base, just to update them a bit. These I could see on a mirrored console in a living or dining room or on either side of a bed upholstered in luxurious hot pink silk. Oh, and the price? $100 for the pair.


At that price, it didn't take long for one of the group, Deanna Nash, to buy them up! I can't wait to see what she does with them!


If Dorothy Draper did the lighting, Frank Sinatra stocked the bar! Check out these super stylish cocktail glasses Christina Murphy of Paisley Petunia picked up.


Very Rat Pack in Palm Springs, no?


Even Jaithan found a little something along the way. Love these vintage Lucite grapes for the coffee table!
