antique show inspiration

on friday, my mom and i had a fabulous day together!
our first stop was the kappa alpha theta antique show in downtown.
antique dealers from across the country (even some from europe!) set up their booths,
and we spotted quite a few incredible pieces! the stories behind some were fascinating.

i even spotted this antique royal dalton plate for hubby's office.
it fits in perfectly with the decor and looks ship shape on the transplanted bookshelf

at the entrance to the show some local antique shops had set up displays,
and this one captured my style. exactly.

rustic french decor, fresh white flowers, a touch of animal print, natural jute rug,
gorgeous mirror, pops of orange color, bright greenery, and
the miniature lit Christmas trees on the credenza.
i gained so much inspiration from this display!

however, i'm pretty sure i don't have the $$ to pick it up tomorrow,
so i'll just keep this picture and use it as inspiration!

we spent the rest of the day Christmas shopping-'til-we-dropped & eating delicious food.
it was so refreshing to spend some quality girl time with my mom.
i am so thankful for you, mom. love you.

and while mom and i were having girl time,
this is what my two boys were up to...cruising on da-da's boat.
they just make me melt.
