I had the amazing opportunity this past weekend to attend a Blogger's Brunch at one of my favorite Antique & Interiors locations. And fortunately for me it was not the location I normally go to... it got me out of my bubble. We all need to do this from time to time right?!? I drove into Alpharetta & attended this little soiree at Queen of Hearts Antiques & Interiors. They all welcomed us with mimosas & swag bags... and quite honsetly they had me at mimosa. After a brief introduction and a little history about their store & the three booming locations (Alpharetta, Buford & Marietta for you local folks) We were set free with our cameras to shop before the store opened which really was a treat! Look at some of the amazing items I found... get ready for picture overload! I tried editing them down, but they were all soooo good.
While I am not a fan of the full blown taxidermy, these little mounted antlers would make the perfect addition to any gallery wall.
Love does not fully express my feelings towards this mid century pendant.
I could design an entire room around this fixture.
In my opinion, anything mounted on a Lucite base is always a chic choice.
These were just a few of the options in this booth.
This hanging lantern would be gorgeous as is, but add a little hard-wiring & make this a light fixture over a kitchen table... STOP! It would be amazing.
These literally stopped me in my tracks & took my breath away. The picture does not do these beauties any justice. They are huge photographs back mounted on acrylic & need to be in my home now. LOVE.
A great little conversation piece for a bookcase or entry console...
Having an interior architecture background I have a slight obsession with old corbels. Simply placed on a shelf as art, or incorporated into a bar or island these would make a major impact.
I could have moved into this next booth. I loved everything from the gold table & preserved boxwood...
this little Lucite & metal box....
the crystal artwork...
the geometric fretwork on this mirrored cube... yes there is more...
the pineapple lamps with the pink lined black shades....
and of course the vintage Hermes waste basket.... swoon. I have never been more infatuated with a waste basket. I couldn't even call it a trash can. So good right?!
This trunk would make a fantastic coffee table or bed bench.
And everyone is loving these industrial lights at the moment... (they had the green too.)
An unintended selfie occurred as I tried to capture the depth of the colors painted onto this ornate mirror.
every home needs a chic little bar cart. And for under $100 this one was a steal... I think.
Tortoise shells are still going strong in the land of interiors. A pair of these on a console table or buffet would be quite the statement!
This little trunk was shelf or table sized, but I loved the detail (& the price!)
The details on these books were stunning!
And completely unexpected, I kinda fell in love with this mounted riders cap. Equestrian chic I think.
Also, they carry Annie Sloan Chalk Paint & Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint! So good to know.
Be sure to visit the Queen of Hearts if you are in the area. Also, stay up to date with their new offerings via Facebook, Twitter & Pinterest... I know I am! I'll be sharing my little scores very soon...
