Jeré Owl


I wish I could say this Curtis Jeré owl is now sitting on my bookshelf at home but alas … it’s price tag kept it anchored to the shelf at Wonders on Woodland. If you have an extra $225 lying around this beautiful piece of metal sculpture could be yours or … mine if you buy it and then give it to me. That would be fine. Have I mentioned my birthday is on Saturday?

For now, I’ll just enjoy this photo taken with J’s phone.

Paulding Lamp {mcm thrift store find}


Our newest mid-century modern find: this unique lamp. If we hadn’t just come from browsing at Wonders on Woodland* and selling them a 1970’s lamp, hubby and I might have passed this one up at the thrift store.


I find the pattern on it quite interesting.


And, I love how it matches all the blues and greens in our living room.


The best part: the lamp only cost $5.99 (plus a $24.99 shade from Target). I’m so happy that my husband enjoys the hunt as much as I do. Last weekend we went to no less than 4 thrift stores, 8 antique stores and 1 yard sale. We didn’t find anything we were looking for but in addition to the lamp, we found 5 great chairs — I’ll show you tomorrow!

*We happen to have Nashville’s coolest MCM antique store—Wonders on Woodland—in our neighborhood. Tell me that’s not the sweetest thing!
