Lucketts - April 2011

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.

My daughter has a mosquito net over her bed and I thought the flower wreath here was so sweet.

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!


  1. the peacocks....and the wallpaper on the stairs...inspiring blog..

  2. Looks like fun! I love stores like that...where every room holds a surprise! ♥

  3. I just love the peacocks in the first picture! you took some wonderful pics, I really need to take a trip back there, haven't been since last summer...

  4. Ok, I have to go with you next time and if they peacocks are still there it is fated that they should come home with me. Y'all are killing me with all the lovely photos.

  5. What a fun field trip. Love all of it!

  6. Hi Melanie, I absolutely love Lucketts! Unfortunately it is almost three hours away so I don't get there but a few times per year. Looks like it is time for another trip.

  7. i love the peacock images. who cares they are small.. they are fantastic.

  8. Funtrip! Have you tried The Cottage in downtown Leesburg? Similar to Luckett's, but their prices are a bit less. So jealous...I wish I wasn't a 20 hour drive away!
