Flip the Switch

This past weekend was the monthly Scott Antique Market in Atlanta and being the awesome friend that I am I decided to take Heather from TwentySomething as she had never been before. Even though it has changed over the years since I was there last we did get LOTS of inspiration ideas. I think we spent less than $10.00 ea during the whole visit but let me tell you  --- some of those vendors REALLY like their items(if you know what I mean)
We also decided to swing by Anthropologie on the way home because well - who doesn't love that store??

One thing that I kept seeing at both places was unusual lighting fixtures. Lighting is not something I generally notice but Beth from The Stories of A to Z recently posted about Basket Lighting so it seemed I was seeing it all over the place.

Here are some other items, besides Lights, that caught my eye.

1. I totally want this for my home office! :)
2. Not a real clock, but the size and color -- fabulous!!!
3. Vintage Paper Roll - Loved it!
4. Books -- the next DIY project with Heather!

1. Keys -- I adore Keys!
2. Awesome old Pharmacy Desk(still had the labels inside the vertical drawers)
3. Loved this postal desk 
4. These vines balls were cool -- I could so see hanging a light bulb inside one!

Needless to say it was a fun trip despite the crazy prices of things!

Heather was overcome with happiness.
She also had one of those "lightbulb" moments hahahaha

My fave Anthropologie finds of the day.

1. Love these chairs
2. I am doing this -- once I find a big enough basket haha
3. Teapot Lamp -- adorable!
4. Letter Graveyard -- I could hear them *silently* screaming Buy Me Buy Me!
Can't wait to see what the next H and R Adventure holds!


  1. i'm new to atlanta area.. so you have me googling that market!!! we have a few peeps close to the area it seems.. sounds like an opportunity to meet up & cause some damage! or have some fun.. you choose! ;)

  2. I am SOOOOO jealous! Why can't Louisville have even something CLOSE to that? I love all the wire basket lighting...and the anthro..and-- wait...I will just say all of it. It looked like so much fun. :)


  3. Isn't that pharmacy case great!?! We don't have a pharmacy case but I do have an old card catalog in the same finish which I absolutely LOVE (now if only I could figure out where I put the drawer pulls after our last move... ha ha!!) Great flea market!!! A friend used to live near Atlanta and I've always wanted to make it to the flea market!!! (ours is a sad, sad affair...)

  4. jealous jealous jealous!!!

    Hey, I might be in Atlanta the last week of March...would you girls be willing to show me your market spots?!?!

    LOVE that vintage paper much did they want for that?

  5. Hi Reginia!
    Hi! I'm finally getting around to visiting everyone in the Circle of Bliss! Better late than never is usually my motto! :-)I don't know if you realized it or not, but we're "neighbors", I'm in Blairsville! I wonder how many of us bloggers are in this area? We'll need to get together and do a little thrifting! :-)
    I'm looking forward to reading your blog. I've signed on to follow!
    Have a wonderful week!
