Sleepy's On The Move


Sleepy recently changed locations for two reasons ~ 1) He creeped my son, Corbin, out when he was home visiting and would wake up in the guestroom with Sleepy looming large over him and 2) I couldn't stand the thought of him being hidden in a back room any longer.  So, here he is front and center as you enter the foyer to my home.  Notice the cluster glass pendant light from West Elm ~ it feels light and airy in the space.


I also recently added these two wonderful 19th Century ridged zinc barrels ~ I found them here


I put my hubby's collection of walking sticks in one of the barrels ~ they all are pretty sentimental to him.  Just wondering ~ what are you collecting these days?  

P.S.  I'm sharing lots more Tattered Style images on Instagram ~ I'd love for you to follow me ~ just click here.  Hoping you have  a wonderful week!

Treasures From A Flea Market


What better way to spend a spring day than to go fleaing ~ another word for cheap therapy in my book.  Here are a few treasures that made it back with me from Roundtop.  I wish you could have been there too!  

Old trophy cups like the one above are becoming increasingly difficult to spot ~ especially one with this price tag.  This old camp trophy was a steal at $5 ~ and had to be the deal of the day!  

Handmade jewelry is one of my favorite things you find at flea markets.  Presently, I'm into feathers and wings.  The feather necklace shown here was made by Gleeful Peacock.


For the mad scientist in me, I couldn't resist this laboratory beaker.  I like that it's multifunctional and can do double duty as a quirky vase.


How adorable are these mini ladles?  I think they will be splendid for serving up dressings and sauces whether using them on a daily basis for my family or throwing a dinner party.


And lastly, I was so happy to find this cool pair of vintage cowboy boots ~ my favorite thing about them...they're broken in and COMFY!  

For those of you who may be a little intimidated when it comes to flea markets, be sure to click on the various hyperlinks throughout this post ~ I've found similar items like the ones above on Etsy.  Happy shopping!

Roundtop & REVELation Decor

 

Sadly, I'm wiping the dust off my boots from my recent trip to Roundtop.  It came and went all too quickly.  However, there are fond memories to hold on to as well as the added bonus of meeting some really cool artists from ~ REVELation Decor.  Ben and Allie made quite an impression with their colorful booth. 

Their whimsical pops of color ~ made them easy to spot ~ as they set up shop at Zapp Hall and Field.  
 

Their pieces flaunted everything from an ombre colored dresser to a chevron patterned chest of drawers. 


One can never go wrong with stripes ~ I think these add the right amount of punch to this buffet/sideboard. 


Loving the chalkboard painted globes too!

How about some leopard spots to shake things up a bit?  

If there was ever a need for inspiration ~ I got a real good dose of it at REVELation Decor.  In addition to their unique painted furniture pieces, Ben and Allie also carried amazing vintage lamps, original art and interesting accessories.  

And might I add, the things they did to repurpurpose old furniture left me speechless.  I hope you have been inspired as well and while you're at it hop on over to their website and blog and pay them a visit. 

I hope you have a splendid week!  :) Dana
