Last weekend, my friend Jeni and I made a second trip together to Leesburg, VA and it did not disappoint. On our previous trip, I'd fallen in love with some owl art and they were still available, but outside of my budget. These peacocks were very reasonably priced, but a little too small.
I loved this one as well but it was a little too big. The Venetian glass candleholder to the right also caught my eye.
Peacocks of a different sort here. This display couldn't be more perfect between the artwork and metal peacocks. Sadly, I never found my "just right" art, peacocks or otherwise.
Generally not my style, but you couldn't help but like this steampunk room.
One of the next projects on my list is to refinish my own pedestal table and I had to take a picture of this one to keep in my inspiration file. I like the rustic, unfinished quality of it.
Next, we headed to Beekeeper's Cottage.
Crowns and mercury glass ...
These stores are actually very old houses. This staircase was in Beekeeper's Cottage and I loved this idea. I've always wanted to have a runner on my stairs but I wonder if this might be a possible alternative.
Here I am with a few of my purchases ... turquoise pots and a little nest (that shed ridiculously all over my jacket). I also purchased a crown that's now on my mantel.
So, those were the highlights for April. I plan to go back in May and can't wait to see what's new!
