Summer has arrived! What a wonderfully busy weekend of shopping, T Ball games and family dinners at our house. We are busy at Faded Elegance filling the store with fabulous finds gearing up for the 4th of July weekend. Friday, Chloe and I went on an Adventure driving to Tacoma for an Estate Sale. We had such high hopes of fabulous treasures. Unfortunately we walked out with only a Big Ben Alarm clock. You can’t keep us down! Next stop a sale in Queen Ann a friend told us about. Come to find out it was an old friends sale, the last time I had attended her sale I was pregnant with Chloe! The heavens opened up and the Sale Gods smiled on us. We loaded up with tons of fabulous treasures. One of my many favorite finds an antique scientific thermometer. I am displaying it with antique beakers and test tubes.
Saturday was Chloe’s last T Ball Game; we had the entire family out at the field to cheer her team on. It was a blast. She’s the smallest one on her team but the best batter. She really hits it! Her couch calls her “Small but mighty” Sunday the entire family woke up early in the morning to go to a sale were we scored a Victorian marble top Humidor and six wonderfully ornate chairs. Then it was time to get ready for a family soiree. It was my mom’s 63rd Birthday. We love our Soiree’s , everything I know about entertaining I have learned from my mom, Lin, She’s the queen of the Soiree’s. Monday was our best day, our good friend Julie called Sunday to tell me that she had a stash of treasures for us. I always look forward to seeing Julie and she always finds fantastic finds for me. Chloe and I packed the truck with Chandeliers, tables, mirrors, trunks and Italian Tole finds. We also purchased a beautiful French chair that I have been coveting at her house for a year. I am not sure if it will make it to the store.
My pile of favorite finds, I’d better get to work on displaying these treasures.
I’ll have to do before and after pictures.
