Another Fabulous Find to Ring in the New Year!

It's been a busy last few months to say the least. With the holidays finally coming to an end I was able to catch up a bit and just breathe. So nice to be able to just stay home sometimes, don't you agree?

My sweet fiance decided to go thrift shopping with me the other day as an excuse to get out of the house. I found this stunning artwork and had to share with you all. The colors in the photo don't do the painting justice. It's honestly now one of my favorite painting that I own! It goes well with all my other lake/ocean theme pictures.

Happy 2014 and cheers to a new year and a fresh start!

Missed Opportunity

Found this beauty at Goodwill the other day and had to leave it at the store. Darn my tiny apartment!!!!

I love the campaign dressers that I've seen all over the blogs and am kicking myself for leaving this Drexel (yes, Drexel!!!) vintage campaign dresser. 

Somebody please tell me that it was the right thing to do to leave it at the store. Oh, and did I mention that it was only $19.00?

Bamboo Chair

I can't get over how adorable my new bamboo chair is! It was a major steal and I've been browsing all my favorite design blogs for ideas on how to style it. What do you think? :)

Blue & White

 I'm loving this cute new blue and white vase I recently picked up. Not so much loving all the cords hanging out all around our place.

Favorite New Finds

Recently I stumbled across a few awesome finds that I just had to share with you.

I always head over to the lamp section whenever I'm in a thrift store. I'm a bit obsessed with lamps and already have far too many for the small space we live in. Despite the fact that we already had four lamps in the living room, I knew this one had to come home with me. The details of the Greek key design on the sides of the lamp made this purchase a no brainer!

I swore that previous lamp would be my last lamp purchase but low and behold, a few days later I found this stunner:

Does this lamp scream "Parisian elegance" or what?!? LOVE IT. It sits on my vanity now but eventually plan to make it a focal point of a room. I have promised the fiance that this will  for real be the last lamp.

These blue and white vases are some of my new favorite decor in the house. I plan to blog about my blue and white obsession in an upcoming post. If you haven't jumped on the blue and white bandwagon yet, you should definitely try it. I promise they go with just about every decor style.

I also found some gorgeous new artwork to add to my ever expanding collection. What do you think?

I've been trying to find more about this artist on-line but so far have come up with nothing. If anyone knows this artist, please share!

My fiance and I can't decide yet whether we love or hate this last piece. You can tell that the artist was very skilled- the eye's on this man are exquisitely detailed. For now he sits hiding behind a lamp on top of my office area. 

Would love to hear your thoughts on all these finds!
