Collection of Chairs and Instagram Weekend Recap

I started my collection of miniature/small chairs probably back in 1993. It's not huge by any means. I never bought a chair just because it was small. I only bought what I loved. I hung them on walls. Grouped them on tables. Used them as bookends and in event vignettes. The bottom line  . . . I enjoyed them. But my collection of floral tins soon became my passion. And so, the little chairs were packed away and relegated to the attic where they lived for the next seven years, in the dark and keeping company with tubs of Harleigh's baby clothes and boxes of holiday decorations.

My booth at Simple Finds has been such a joy to style and keep stocked. Furniture is my best seller (as it is with most vendors), but I do like to keep the space filled with quaint, random items. To keep at the steady pace of simplifying my life AND to add to my booth, I decided to sell my chair collection. I do hope they all find good homes.

Here's my booth. Definitely one of the smallest spaces at the antique mall, but in a great location.

And here are some Instagram images from the last couple of weeks. Harleigh came home this past Friday night for the Georgia Tech / Georgia Southern game at Tech. A co-worker, who is a Tech alum, got us A-MAZ-ING seats on the 40-yard line, 3rd row. We were right behind the Southern bench, so we could cheer on our team within ear shot. The club seats got us free wine and beer and the chance to escape the heat into air-conditioned comfort complete with TV screens so as not to miss any of this fantastic game. We were winning 38-35, and then in the last 20 seconds Tech scored a touchdown. We didn't go down without a fight. My girlie left right after the game to head back to Statesboro; a big test today had her a bit anxious about getting good study time in, so she wanted to be back that evening and have all day Sunday to hit the books. Atta girl!

My Instagram feed has an over-the-top amount of Gideon pix. He's just so darn photogenic.

Pumpkins are at the grocery store!!!! Ingles had them on sale for $4 a piece, and so I bought these two big beauties.
