Saturday was girls' day. My daughter and I met two of my friends and their daughters for tea and scones at a local bakery. Of course, girls' day calls for a little shopping. After breakfast, we headed to a local shop called Quince and Quinn. They were having a huge tent sale and everything was 40% off. I had never been to the store before, but I will definitely be going back. Most things were a bit pricey, even at 40% off, but I did come away with a great book. Well, actually 1/2 a book. My friend and I decided to buy the book together. We weren't buying it to read, we wanted to rip out the pages and frame them.
It was this book.
We paid $30 total and it can be also be found here.
My first selection was these three butterfly prints. I had 8x10 close-up pictures of my three children here previously. When I bought the frames, I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to put in them, but I loved the size and shape of them and knew they would work well on this big wall.
Here's a picture of the dining room all cleaned up (before I switched out the pictures).
I love the colors in the butterfly prints. Color is exactly what this wall needed.
One more look.....
Okay, now here's a look at some of the more pricey items that I absolutely loved.
I loved this vintage beverage cart.
Most items in the store were new, but there were a few really cool vintage things mixed in.
This industrial metal wall cabinet was calling my name.
I love this mirror, but it was waaaaaaaay too expensive.
I think I could find one at Homegoods and spray paint it glossy white for a similar look.
This pillow would be perfect in my daughter's new room.
However, I already confessed that I change my mind way too often to buy expensive pillows.
I have a thing for stools and I've been
sternly warned,politely asked not to bring anymore stools home.
There are currently nine in our garage (waiting for a makeover). Who needs some barstools?
I desperately want to replace the light in my boys' room and this one would be perfect.
It was 40% off $595, still too much for me.
I've got my eye on one very similar to this one without the high price tag.
I was loving this whole botanical scene. The blue vase, the greenery and the fabric, love it all!
Last, but not least, this beautiful curved cabinet (with a blue interior). The shape was amazing.
It was a great day, and I got to spend time with my little girl and two good friends.
Can't ask for much more than that.
