I am so excited on finding my bistro chairs at last!  Last week I was driving around the area of Lady's Island, South Carolina and saw some bistro chairs outside of an antique shop.  I did not stop since the store was located in the other direction that I was headed towards.  So the next day, I went to visit the store, and gazed at these chairs.....I was so excited to see them and went right away to the sales clerk and asked the price of them.

Yes - I got a great deal on these since I have been researching for these quite awhile now and am aware of the current pricing.  The price tag was faded away so the sales clerk came over to see price and responded $70.00 for both.  Yes I will take them, I said excitedly.

Here are some photos that I have of them to share with you.

Stenciled with "Cafe Las Ramblas"

I adore the turquoise color of chair

I used upholstery tacks to place initial on pumpkin

I also bought a farm table from the 1800's but do not have a photo of it yet since the store is holding it for me until  I move
into my home.  Will share photo of my table once I get settled.

I am still house hunting and can't wait to decorate with these two chairs...........

I Can't Believe She is 7 Years Old -- Cupcake Celebration

Happy Birthday, LOLA~

Here she is ready to devour her vanilla cupcake to celebrate!

Here is the bakery that I visited to buy her cupcake which is located in Beaufort, SC.  It just recently opened and has a large selection of cupcake flavors.  One of my favorites is Red Velvet, of course.

Today I visited Carolina Cider Company in South Carolina.  It was an old general store filled with homemade ciders, pickles, jellies, jams, BBQ sauces, grits, pecans and rices.  They also have samplings of their products for tasting.  Their jellies are so tasty!  I decided to try the peach cider and it was so yummy.  In fact, I decided to buy some to take home with me.  The ciders are all handmade without any artificial flavorings.

Homemade pies were also one of their specialties made by a local baker.  In fact, Laurel Goodman was interviewed by Southern Living and you can read about her here, I included the website.

My Vintage Finds

Today I felt like shopping for some vintage finds, so I drove over to the Bluffton historical area.  The square was filled with many art galleries, restaurants, wine shop, and boutiques close to the May River.

I came across this cute little boutique called Eggs n Tricities.  The decor of this place was so vintage looking. Everything inside the store was so cute that I could have bought everything in the store, not exactly!  There was a selection of hilarious cards, clothing, soaps, purses, baby clothing, vintage jewelry and many other items for your home.

Overall I had a great time and came home with a vintage dress and tool box.  I just quickly took a shot of the toolbox with some fall items. I would not use this on my table due to its size, did not think it was that large until I got home.  Oh well, I would definitely use this on my front porch filled with geraniums.

Don't U just love this bike?
Old Fisherman Never Die, They Just Smell That Way.......

Here is the dress, it looks better on then on the hanger......Do you know what I mean?

My vintage tool box that I found

Will definitely go back again to do some more shopping!!!!

I visited the Back in the Day Bakery in Savannah and it immediately brought back my childhood memories the first moment I walked in the door.  Even when I was a teenager, I made money baking items for neighbors and friends.  The decor inside the bakery was vintage, airy and nostalgic. The windows allowed plenty of light, and the chandeliers added a vintage vibe.  The exposed brick walls seemed authentically aged for a warm, nostalgic feel.
See the Easy Bake Oven - top shelf on the left hand side?  I just loved mine, did you have one?   I also love the enamel items, vintage mixer and cupcake stands.....
Their baked items (cupcakes, cookies, cakes, etc) were out of this world.  I took home with me some pumpkin crunch bars and homemade banana pudding........

Homemade breads....I just love the wall decor on the walls, the BREAD sign (left) is cute also.
I just adore the wall hanging on the left wall, "Keep Calm, Have a Cupcake"

Do you have a favorite bakery that you want to share?
Here is their address:

Just A Little More Fall Decorating

I found this table at a local vintage shop in PA.  The artwork is from Nancy Thomas.  I found her art in Williamsburg, VA and have loved it ever since.  In fact, I have a monthly subscription for her artwork.  Just love it!
I just could help myself for going thru  more of my boxes in storage and pulling out more decorations!  It makes me think of fall back home in Pennsylvania. Can't wait until I get my new home and be able to decorate it the way I like it!  I know, I know I have to be patient!!!

Here is one more shot of a bench with some of my decorations ----

My favorite pillow for Halloween

I just love this mason jar filled with small pumpkins.....

Have a wonderful day!  What is your favorite decoration for Halloween?
