Loving upstate antiquing!

A busy weekend upstate is behind us-- lots of visitors and lots of antiquing. One of my favorite ways to spend a weekend, and a complete success on all fronts!

I picked up this tremendous vintage brass-framed mirror at a yard sale for $20.00! That baby is about 30" in diameter, weighs a small ton, and couldn't be more perfect for our bedroom. You've got to love bargain hunting in the Catskills; you pretty much have to try to come home empty-handed. The "new" mirror also inspired me to make a couple of final tweaks in the master bedroom, and things are really shaping up in there. It's hard to believe that a couple of weeks ago, we were still sleeping in a room with bare drywall and screw holes, and now it looks like this. What a relief/transformation! 

Check out the super cute vintage sunburst vases I also discovered this weekend-- 
$5.00 for the pair. I'm pretty sure that qualifies as a steal. 

What better way to welcome spring into our home?? 
(Hint, hint...)
