A few romantic whites...

I'm always drawn to spaces in white,
so today I'm sharing a few lovelies 
from my visit last week to

I fell in love with this dress form 
adorned with a vintage lace table topper!

(does she look familiar? she's in my header)

always something inspiring at "The Suitcase".

And remember,
The Marketplace is live all week.
(a party to link up your Etsy and Online Boutique items)

The Vintage Suitcase

This last week I headed over to one of my favorite shops here in town. You can always count on Robin to have the most gorgeous displays and beautiful decor items. Each time I'm there I come home with some great inspiration, not to mention wanting to buy out the store. Here is just a little eye candy for you to enjoy. Remember all you have to do is click on the image for it to enlarge, then click again to get all the "details".

The color of this mantel is original blue and just stunning.

Love the doggy pillows.

This is a huge and elaborate French mirror.

These next few photos are from the "Garden District". 
This room is covered ceiling to floor with old windows.
I'ts like you're in an old greenhouse.

This antique paper umbrella is HUGE!!!

And yes, this reproduction seed box now lives at my house.
I had to have it!

Hard to tell, but this is a moss covered mirror.

The  fabric on the settee and chair slipcovers is Louis Vuitton...
so fun!

Robin has an endless supply of antique silver pieces

Chinese cabinet

Gorgeous jewelry and some chunky cuff bracelets.

If you're local, make plans to visit the
 wonderful tea room at the shop,
The Vintage Veranda.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

A Haute Halloween

Yesterday afternoon, I had the pleasure of visiting my friend Robin's wonderful estate, the Humbolt Mansion, here in Springfield. Robin is the creator and owner of Robin's Vintage Suitcase, the Vintage Veranda Tea Room, and Ms. Gilmore's, a wonderful wedding venue. Robin and Rick's amazing 100+ year old home is a landmark here, and they are owners and caretakers of one of the most amazing homes and properties in the area. Robin's touch is evident at this fun time of the year, as she mixes antiques and one-of-a-kind collectibles with items she currently sells in her shop. These are just a few photos of her home impeccably dressed for a "Haute Halloween".

 This is just the first post of wonderful Halloween inspiration.
I'll be sharing more photos soon.
