Valentines and Vintage Finds

Things just feel so much cleaner and fresher after Christmas is put away - have you noticed that? We finally accomplished that here at the cottage last weekend. I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to put in a few new pieces of furniture. Well not new, they are old, but new to the cottage.

One is a great, round, solid oak table. It has been covered with glass to protect the beauty of the finish. There is also a small oak buffet with mirrored back. Soo pretty. We also brought in a cute little gossip bench, painted black and distressed. AND my favorite piece of all is the distressed, black cedar chest. Actually, it looks like a short dresser. But the top two drawers are faux, and the top lifts to reveal plenty of space for blankets,etc. It does have one nice, big, real drawer on the bottom. It is really unique. I was going to post pictures, but, alas, my camera battery is dead. Aargh! Maybe later.

Meanwhile, we also brought in some fun vintage smalls and some wonderful, old mirrors. We sold a couple great, vintage, florals before I even got them hung.

AND we got in our vintage style valentines. They are adorable and have moving parts - - googly eyes and peek-a-boo and such.

So stop in and see what's new (and old) at the cottage. I know some of the pieces will go fast!
