Sunday With The Queen

I spent Sunday with a group of Atlanta bloggers at Queen of Hearts Antiques & Interiors.  If you live in the Atlanta area you probably know this place.  Everyone I talk to tells me this is their favorite antique store.  They have 3 locations, Alpharetta, Buford & Marietta.  They opened the Alpharetta store early just for us!  We were greeted with a champagne brunch & sway bags that were personalized with our initials!

Aren't they cute!  What Southern girl doesn't love an initial?!  After our wonderful brunch, Stacey, the owner introduced herself & several of the staff members.  You can tell they are really passionate about what they do & they love being a part of the Queen!  We were given a few hours before they opened the store to shop.  I met Lisa from Before Meets After & we did some shopping together.  She is pregnant & just found out she is having a boy!  She picked up some great items for the nursery & I can't wait to see what she does with them.

I loved this pallet wall & this console table.  There was lots of cute stuff in this booth!

I loved this idea!  Cut holes in the drop cloth & push smaller pieces through to make a fringe!  I am so going to do this!!

Totally love this idea!

This painting caught my eye.

Chippy goodness, need I say more?

Ahh, more chippiness.  Love!

Cute little lids for mason jars, I picked up some of these.  Now I just need to have a party & use them!

I am in to horse heads right now & love the weathered gray boards behind it.

Burlap, piping & cute bunny!!  

This was another cute booth!  Loved the turquoise shutters & check out the old ironing board.

Super cute idea for a frame, there were several to choose from.

There are so many great things to choose from at Queen of Hearts.  Be sure you visit one of their stores soon, I am sure you will find something you can't live without!  

I was not compensated for this post.  I was given a gift certificate & a bag of goodies.

Spring Braselton Antique Festival

I will be heading to the Braselton Antique & Garden Festival this weekend.  It is held twice a year in the Spring & Fall.  Last Fall was the 1st time I was a vendor in the festival.  We had so much fun that we decided to do it again!  I have been so busy painting & getting things ready.  I will be bringing lots of CeCe Caldwell paints & I will be offering some great show only discounts.  If you haven't tried it yet, this weekend will be the time!  I will be bringing paints for you to try so be sure & stop by!

Here is a sneak peek of what my booth will look like.   Sorry for the dark picture, I had to practice my set up in the basement.  Am I the only one who does this when getting ready for a big show?

I'm still here!  Wow, I can't believe it's been almost 2 months since I have posted.  If you follow me on Facebook, I try to post daily & you get lots of sneak peeks!

If you head over there today you will here about the amazing deal I just got on 2 lights at Pottery Barn outlet.   You will also learn that my husband only likes the part of the chair I haven't touched yet.

I have been working on lots of projects for the Braselton Antiques Festival at the end of the month.  I hope if you are in Georgia you can join us, it is going to be huge this year!  I am so excited!!

And just so you don't feel like you wasted your time reading all this, here is a picture of my sweet pup.
