HRH Antiques

One of my first trips out after finally getting over all my sickness was over to Pine Mountain, Georgia.  As always I manage to stop by all my fav antique spots, the guys at Sweet Home Antiques told me I “had” to stop by HRH Antiques & Design, so of course I did!

Antique Delight

The very moment I saw this antique chest I fell hard!  It was styled beautifully (wish I had a pic but think antique shaving mirror with a pair of lamps on either side and lots of other wonderful pieces sitting on top) and was sitting my Bestie N’s bathroom.  As luck would have it, she found a piece she loved more than that chest. Knowing I wanted the chest she called and asked if I was interested...heck yeah!!!  I had no idea where it was going but for sure I wanted it!

Blue and White in the Kitchen

Over the past 6 years the glass door cabinets in the kitchen have stayed relatively the same.  Often times I’ve thought that I wanted or needed to change them up and while I did tweak them I never took everything out and started fresh, until recently.

Valentine's Day Cheer

For someone that adores Valentine’s day you should can’t tell by my decorations this year.  With one kid away at college and my other college child always on campus, hardly at home these days I opted to use my bar car as a treat station.  I took all of their favs (Honey’s too) and prettied the bar cart with a few of my fav crystal pieces.

A New Year, A Clean Attic

It has been an interesting few weeks!  Realizing that you all haven't heard from me in the New Year I feel like you might be owed an explanation!  Did I just say New Year??  Gosh just a few weeks ago it was Christmas and now here we are approaching Valentine's Day!  My January was a crazy one, I was sick with 3 different things that knocked me back by a few weeks!  I feel so behind in every aspect of my life! The day before I ended up with food poisoning, I decided it was time to tackle one of the attic spaces.  John was still home from college so he was an enormous help.  Maybe you recall in an instastory some time ago i mentioned I had 23 lamps in I the attic, the count of lamps is down a bit!   Here are a few photos of how it looked when I started!  

To say it was a disaster would be correct!  Just trying to shove the Christmas stuff that I store in this attic (we have 5 smallish attic spaces) was a huge effort.  This was just one of the loads I took to a local thrift store. 

The plan was to get all this stuff out and then go thru the remaining tubs that hold seasonal items among other treasures!  Then the very next day I had a burger from 5 Guys(I've always loved their burgers)and for the next 5 days I was incredibly sick!  When I walked out that afternoon preburger this is what it looked like AND still looks like!

The weather got cold again and I couldn't even bring myself to open the attic door.  Waiting in the attic is still a mountain of work as you can see from the photos above.  The revised plan is to get in there when life settles back down (maybe next week) and sort through those tubs.  I even need to sweep and put out lots of whatever it takes to rid the attic of the mice that have been calling it home...ya'll that is another blog post entirely!
