A Few Silver Treasures

"A room should feel collected not decorated."
I happen to think old silver serving pieces are so uniquely elegant and I can't help but be drawn in when sifting through salvaged odds and ends at thrift stores and antique fairs. I am able to see past the tarnish and age spots confident that a little elbow grease and silver polish will unveil their original beauty. 
Here are some of my latest finds just listed in the shop this week...

Flea Market Flips


I. Love. This. Show.
Thrifting and flipping...right up my alley. Lara Spencer of HGTV is passionate about all things vintage and antique and is host to Flea Market Flip, a show in which contestants get $500 to score flea market finds they can buy, fix and flip for a profit. Lara, as well as her contestants each week, know how to spot a diamond in the ruff and transform it. Looking for a one-of-a kind piece, a vintage revival or just some inspiration? This show has that and more. 
Lara offers some basic tips to antique shopping:
*determine your style
*look for solid pieces
*check for labels
*take two trips through
*train your eye
*look for good bones, good lines and a classic shape
*you snooze, you lose
*keep on moving
*cash is king
*trust your gut
*grab it and go
*know the power of paint
*easiest flip...reupholstered chairs
*tell a story in your home
*buy things you love

I'm sharing some of my favorite internet flips with you including links to the before and afters and the creative eye behind each find. If you have the passion for junk and transforming trash into treasures you will surely feel the love for these flips.

Inspire Me

Pinterest never fails to leave me inspired when I type the word "art" into the search line. 
I created a board especially for all those inspirations which you can find here
I've also gathered a collection of my favorites to get your creative juices flowing 
or to just leave you awe inspired. 
Remember...
"Art is not what you see, but what you make others see."  ~Degas
