A few weeks ago my little family and I took a vacation to Florida. I love to shop while I am visiting the sunshine state, and always on the lookout for some new treasures to bring home.

This year we rented a small car, so I knew there would not be much room to cart my treasures home. I needed to be selective in choosing what I bought.


My heart literally skipped a beat when I spotted two gorgeous vintage Italian tole side tables!

They both were the rose tole as well! I usually only see the gold wheat design which is pretty, but definitely not my favorite.

I was so excited! I didn't give my husband an option to say that there wouldn't be room in the car, and luckily there was!

I think these amazing tables are so elegant and classy. The sister table to this one is currently residing in the library, you will see photos of it when I post my fall home tour. I love how my gold antique mirrors compliment the table.

Also on my trip I picked up a trio of glass trinket boxes.

I found them at Cracker Barrel and I think they are so sweet. I don't know what I'll be using them for yet.

I am so pleased with my sweet treasures that I found this year! I will share more with you in upcoming posts!

We had a beautiful time in Florida. Below are a few photos from our trip. 

They are a bit blurry due to the fact that they were taken on my phone, but I hope you enjoy them anyways.

Thank you so much for visiting and I'll talk to you soon!


I am beyond excited to share with you today an amazing halloween decor piece from Victorian Trading Company!

When Victorian Trading Company reached out to me and offered to send me their heirloom quality 
Arachne's Aura Stained Glass Lamp  I was over the moon excited! 

If you have been following me for any length of time you know how much I love decorating my home for Halloween, and how much I enjoy finding unique and elegant halloween decorations!

Victorian Trading Company is one of my "go to" companies for Halloween decor, in fact I have purchased many items from them in years past and look forward to bringing my treasures out each year.

I have long loved Tiffany style lamps. When I was a young girl my parents gifted me a beautiful Tiffany style lamp for my birthday. I loved that lamp but sadly the lamp shade accidentally broke and shattered years ago.  

When I saw this Tiffany style lamp from Victorian Trading Company, it brought back memories of the lamp from my childhood, and what made it even better was that it was Halloween themed!

I have never seen a Halloween lamp like this one. I love the fact that it features jeweled spiders on delicate  webs all the way around the lamp.

The body of the lamp is very detailed and there is a not so scary spider at the base. 

The actual glass on the lampshade is so unique! The colors are mostly green with blues and just a tad hint of orange, but they are arranged in a marble effect!

I can see myself passing this lamp down to my children years from now. Its definitely an heirloom and a keepsake.

I love the soft glow the lamp gives off when lit. The ambiance is spooky but comforting at the same time. I have it sitting on my gold piano for now, but I look forward to finding even more places to display it as the Halloween season draws closer.

If you love this lamp as much as I do, you are in luck! Victorian Trading Company is having their Halloween Early Bird Special Pricing Event right now. The Arachne's Aura Stained Glass Lamp
is on sale as well as other Halloween goodies, so make sure you check it out! 

I have my eye on several different items on their early bird special as well! Happy shopping!

I would like to thank Victorian Trading Company for this awesome opportunity!

Thank you for stopping by!
