We got up rather early... for us. I had told Stephen that there was an estate sale I had heard about, that we HAD to go to before we started working on the house.
So he was sweet... and took me.
We started here, so he would have his estate sale shopping energy.
The estate sale was in a house that was to be torn down, in a beautiful neighborhood in Shreveport. We walked in, and it was like stepping back to the 1960's. Check out the front door.
I LOVE the wallpaper. I LOVE the door. I LOVE the window above the door.
This wallpaper was in the kitchen. Just on one wall. So awesome.
Loved it so much that when I saw another girl tear some off the wall. I did the same. (Explaining that one to Stephen was fun. "What are you going to do with that?" Duh... frame it.)
|Looking from bathroom into one of the bathrooms. Pink Walls. Yes.|
I'm kicking myself for not asking if I can buy these. Of course I could have. If I could tear wallpaper off the walls, I could have had these. I know I know. I'm stupid.
This lady loved wallpaper. And I love her. Whoever she was.
Pink Bamboo wallpaper. Yes please.
And then Stephen spotted this. Our china.
Yes, we put a bid on it and won! We're so excited to have 4 vintage mottahedeh cup and saucers. Done and Done.
Stephen found a TON of records that are in MINT condition. I've never seen records of this age in this good of condition. And I won't even tell you how great of a deal they were. Deal with a capital D.
We found the most gorgeous artwork, right as we walked in. We went into our estate sale mode. I went and got a pen. Stephen stood by the art. I marked it sold. We were both dying that we got it. There were a ton of people wanting it... they just don't know the "mark sold" and move on... move.
So after we finished the sale... which we got a ton of fun finds... we headed out to our car basically skipping (me, not Stephen).
The art didn't fit in the volvo.
So we started making calls. I was distracted by the neighbors house we were in front of. Doesn't it scream Louisiana? I love it.
Kevin, my manager came to the rescue. Luckily, Shreveport isn't very big... so he came and rescued us in his SUV. Stephen and I have both decided we need to buy one. For all my estate sale finds.
All in all, it was a great day. We had the best time finding fun things at the estate sale and working around the house. I was so inspired by the decor at the estate sale that I wanted to go home and wallpaper every wall.
But since all we do is REMOVE wallpaper from our house... I decided Stephen wouldn't go for that. But gosh, I could really use some pink bamboo wallpaper somewhere. Seriously.
