I love to browse through antique stores for fun. Yesterday I stopped by the Antiques Gallery in the Moultrie Shopping Center in Mt. Pleasant for a quick look. I was surprised and pleased to find quite a few treasures. Of course I didn't buy anything--not this time anyway. My goal was to find a few plates for a wall collage, but I didn't find exactly what I was looking for on this trip. Just getting ideas for myself and clients is tons of fun. This kind of store is also a great place to find containers for organizing--trays, plates, cups, vintage tins are great examples. I am in love with the vintage floral painting above--it was less than $150, and the tole trays. The two needlepoint florals below would look fantastic in a little girl's shabby chic bedroom.
I am now a stay at home mom but in my former life I was a French teacher--I have my B.A., M.A., and A.B.D. (next step to Ph.D. in French literature). I love teaching and miss it but in the meantime I am enjoying operating a part-time home organizing and design business. Contact me for more info if you are interested!
