I am a passionate treasure huntress addicted to "the thrill of the hunt." I pride myself on finding unique items and have spent a lifetime collecting unusual and interesting "treasures" which I have used in decorating our home. I shop with an eye for design and look for pieces that I like to call the "jewelry" of the room. Those pieces that have been around accumulating energy thereby bringing life into a space by telling its story or evoking a memory. The allure is found in the details of its journey... condition, provenance and patina. Our collected "treasures" tell the story of who we are. Billy Baldwin said it best, "Decorating is never successful unless it is personal." My treasures are available for purchase in my Etsy Shop and on my companion blog, Shop La Dolfina. The links can be accessed from my sidebar.
"All of life is about energy. It's about the energy that you're putting out; energy that you're drawing to yourself, every day, based on the way you think about your life & the actions that you take. Everybody is an energy field. And because of your attitude, your thinking, your actions; who you choose to be in the world, forms your own field. You are drawing into your field people who are like you... to remind you, to show you, to reflect back to you- who you are. Believe that or not, that is what is happening all the time... and it does not require your belief. It just is. It. Just. Is." -Oprah
Oh Terri, how I love shopping through your eyes. It looks as if you had a lot of discipline if you did not buy any of these goodies. I know most of these were near and dear to your heart. It was a beautiful sunny and crisp day, perfect for treasure hunting. I can't wait to hear all about your day. xo Kathysue
Maybe it is a good thing i live so far away.....I would be in big trouble here. Such lovely things and great photos! Looks like a fabulous Sunday to me. XO
LOVE! I will be a regular here, babe!
That settles it! I've got to come down/up/over for this. seriously! All those shells....wow. And your photographs/angles are really lovely too. wow!!!
What a great idea, Terri! Eye candy for free. Have a great week.
I'm not sure I was at the same Flea Market! Some of these beautiful artifacts missed my roving eye or were picked up before I got there! I kept missing you! I recognize the rusted Victorian fire-place heads resting on the bottle dryer. You can buy them at Tyler Florence for double the price! I think I might have to get one next month. There was only one left @ 1pm. http://www.tylerflorence.com/
This IS a lovely day! Look at all these goodies. :-))
I would love for your friend to carry my journals for her shop. Thank you for your kind thoughts.
Wishing you a great week.
Oh my goodness. How did you stop yourself from buying EVERYTHING in sight? There is so much gorgeousness!
What a great fair! I am sure I could not resist everything... I would have to buy those old signs... and the clock faces... and some old bottles... and...
Thanks for sharing. I would not have been able to resist not buying..
Shopping with you was such fun, but I think i would not have left with out those fabulous French ticking blue pillows. Fun!! Fun!!
we should set up shop!!!
this is an amazing venue
I love this idea and I feel like I went with you. I just wish i really had!
Hi Terri...almost didn't go. With all the bad weather reports I was adjusting my expectations. Boy did it turn out to be beautiful. My son had something in mind for his girlfriend (ahhh) so I went along for the ride. Love the bottle on the silver base. Trish
WHERE IS THIS? I THINK I'M STARTING TO GET SICK. TOO....MANY...PRETTY...THINGS...ONE...PLACE...i...can't...buy...
I think my head might explode...
Nice pictures Terri! I was there too and it was a beautiful day!!!
Wow! So many wonderful pics of such gorgeous treasures! Have a sweet day!
WOW- so much eye candy I'm on overload! So glad you visited me today...I love your blog and can't wait to see more of your gorgeous home.
Oh my goodness, I am swooning. I think we should be friends...
Have a great week,
WOWZA! I was there, but my eyes didn't see anything like that! Your photos are amazing!!!
Hi, just found your blog and I am so excited! I love all of these photos, it shows me I need to pay closer attention when I shop at Alameda. However, I did take that table with the names carved into it home to my shop! Great blog!
I'm reeling from swooning over and over! I love those shell-crusted lamps and the steel orb. I'd make that into a pendant lamp pronto-like. Thanks for sharing the shopping fun!
Kathysue sent me over. I am so pleased I came but this post shows the most terrifying place I have ever seen. I would not get out of there under a semi-trailer load and a divorce the next week. Absolutely amazingly beautiful finds.
It feels like I was with you, you have pictures of everything that would have caught my eye! Thanks, I'll be waiting for our next trip,lol
Hello, I just found your blog!! Oh. my. God. That market is awesome, all those awesome things in the one place. I love those blue bottles!! I WANT a market like that in Sydney Australia....NOW.
Joining up to your blog now.
Wow! That could have been quite a shopping spree! Those glass floats were European. I'm not sure I could have left some of those behind! I need a few more to dust! Looked like a very neat place. Thank goodness we don't have anything like that up here in Alaska. I'd be in big trouble! :)
Thanks for sharing.
