February Scott's Antique Finds

Ok, so I have been really bad at blogging the past couple weeks. Mainly due to being super busy with um, life and the being sick .

This weekend was full of friends and so much fun! It started with one of my high school friends flying into town Thursday and meeting for dinner at Barcelona Wine Bar in Inman Park. First time here for me and I lovvved it! Excellent food, company, wine, and atmosphere.

Friday our friends from Alabama came in town for a visit. We started with an easy but yummy dinner at Nuevo Laredo in West Midtown, always a favorite! Early to bed because Saturday we met A-Train's mom bright and early at Scott's Antique. She goes every month and has been going for many years. She is a PRO antique-er. Even though it is overwhelming I feel fairly confident walking around on my own but she taught me a thing or two (or three...).

We were just kinda looking so I ended up with some nic-nacs but definitely found some chairs that I love, maybe next time! Here's the run-down...

I've been wanting to try one of those Pinterest inspired picture frame turned into a dry erase board or cork board projects for my desk area until I saw this baby. $24 bucks and I was sold! Only thing is I got home and I wish I had 2, next time!

Second item from the same booth is not a random man (that's hubs) but the little plaque he is holding. His nickname growing up was "Tripple B" which stand for.... get ready.... "Big Booty Bowden". Yes. Dead. Serious. He is plagued with a bubble butt (he got this along with his height from the milk man). He got so excited when he saw this that we had to have it, only $5 too! They have tons of these and they'd be super cute in a nursery!

Ok, I know silver makes some people yawn but I'm obsessed. My style is very eclectic but I do have some traditionalist in my heart. This sugar and creamer were in a $5 bin. I never even knew about $5 bins until our friend's mom! The tray was either $5 or $10 too! Can't beat cheap silver!

These are 2 more pieces, the round tray $10 and the cute little serving spoon $5 bin.

This was one of my favorite things of the day. A silver cake stand that is on a platform with little feet. Seriously, how cute is this? There are so many great things I can do with this piece. $25!

Ok, I know I am boring you with photos of silver, I'll switch it up. This is a picture of the 1914 Harvard football team. We were walking by and a guy had this on the wall and looked at it, kept walking, quickly did a U-Turn and marched my butt right back. I think this is really cute. My husband has a bunch of football memorabilia from his family(example pic below) that I have no where to put in our house. So I've decided to paint our hallway going down to the basement and then do collage walls with all his football stuff. I've been looking on Etsy and Ebay for quirky football things so for $20 this was a must-have. Ry-guy loved it too!

One of the photos going on our football collage wall. Ry's Dad and Grandad with Joe Paterno (RIP JoePa).

That is pretty much everything we got except for a stack of antique coral-colored Swedish books to fill our bookshelfs, I've bored you enough, I won't bore you with pics of books(ha).

After Scott's we headed over to the Ballards Design Outlet on Defoors but didn't find too much this time. Then we headed home to rest our feet before dinner and snack on some wine and cheese. Another couple we are friends with came over and we all headed to SOHO in Vinnings. This was a last minute reservation and being the weekend before V-Day EVERYTHING in ATL was booked. Luckily we scored this, it was a great meal full of fun conversation, Andre 3000 from OutKast also joined us there! (Ok, not really but he was at the bar... hheeeyyy yaaaaa....) We woke up the next morning and had brunch at Another Broken Egg in Peachtree Battle (another great spot) before our friends headed home.

All in all, a great trip and a great time with friends. I am already looking forward to the next trip to Scotts!
