Welcome! Pineapples are a show of Hospitality!!

pineapples have long been a symbol of hospitality.  the display of pineapples, often seen in architecture and design, is a way to tell your guests "welcome"!
I have always loved this symbol and have them throughout our home.  as well, my husband and I decided to use the pineapple motif on our wedding invitations {which we collaborated on and designed ourselves} as a welcoming gesture to our guests, but, also, because we think they are beautiful and regal and represent where we're coming from since we live in a tropical place.  so, we thought a pineapple would be perfect. ☺

back to our home, though...  as I was gathering photos for this post I thought to myself, we actually have a lot more pineapples around than I realized {we even have slightly more than what I have pictured here}.  they must be discreet, though, because no one has ever come to my house and said, "hey, I see that you collect pineapples" as they do with other items we have a lot of... interesting, huh?  anyway, here they are!:

on the tea towel on our bar cart and as part of a flower arrangement {in the 1st photo}:

here they are in the flower arrangement again...

this is actually a candle.  it's on a sconce in our hallway:

...we have 2 of these candles; the other one is on our mantle:

right outside our home!:

this is a finial that I painted and screwed into an old lamp base, I liked both pieces better this way ;)

here it is unpainted:

it's the base of a lovely marble top side table- too bad you can't actually see how beautiful the marble is in these photos:

this is a pineapple lamp that I made, you can see how I did it here

and here's the proof of our invites!

British Colonial Chair Rescue

check out this great chair i rescued!!  the guy thought they were so awful that he wasn't even going to sell them at his yard sale!  i convinced him to sell them to me- there were 3 of them and now they're probably my favorite chairs {and i have a lot of them! ;) }

lastly, we added casters...

not only did this chair have good bones, the cushions are the most comfortable ones have in our house- all i had to do was recover them
p.s. i used high quality linen-colored bedsheets which was really easy to work with and feels super soft.

p.s.s.  i'd love to hear your comments below!

Best Pick EVER!!!

as many of you know, my husband and I go picking every single saturday morning to hunt for hidden, forgotten, and buried treasures...
when we're lucky we find killer deals and can pass on the savings on my website and this one where everything is under $10.{!}

but this past saturday was the BEST PICK EVER!!!!!
i'm still reeling from the day but i wanted to share our finds with you fellow pickers!

so 1st of all, check out all of the tiffany i scored!!:

...with their original pouches even!!  got them for a song.

she actually felt bad that she didn't have the boxes so she threw in a jewelry box she wanted rid of - it'll make a nice box to put a gift in as it's nice and clean on the inside - and a barrette {i've been needing a barrette like this so it's already 'in use'}!

so, here's the whole lot:

one of my BEST finds of the day- this topiary.  i've actually been wanted this for a very, very long time, my only regret is that he didn't have 2 of them.  it is nice and tall, too- approx. 65"!!
isn't she lovely?

we collect these bamboo folding chairs, they're the chairs we use for extra seating indoors and out and they're also my favorite style of folding chairs... this one was just $5.

we scored some limoges serving pieces- a lucky find for 2 reasons:
1. they match some of our existing limoges pieces
2. we can always use more serving pieces so this is an even better find than, say, finding the plates would have been!
a dollar.
here are the 2 pieces together:
{p.s. that's 22 karat gold on there ;) }

a tuscan fine english bone china 'Happy Anniversary' Cup and Saucer - very specific, but a sweet gift to have on reserve:

i paid a dollar for this platter that also matches some pieces that we already have- i plan to make a cake platter out of it...

...and we got some matching throw-ins!
{a dessert plate and divided bowl}

here are my husband's finds:
a back-up portable amp that he says actually sounds better than the one he already had!

this jig saw that we've both been wanting.  i've read other DIYer's blogs and seen not only where this has really come in handy, but projects that you can't do without one, so i've been wanting him to get one!  no more having to borrow from our neighbor ☺

some other cool vintage tools:

*then*, we got some other throw-ins throughout the day...  this cool vintage enamel colander and ladle are actually pieces that i've been wanting to get for back-ups lately- it's like i willed them and they fell in my lap:

a vintage cabbage patch twin sheet that i'll probably list shortly...

and a my little pony collectors case that a thrift store didn't want!  it's in near mint condition and so cute- just need to decide if i want to keep it as storage {for what though?} or sell it to a real collector...

so good.  i've dubbed it the 'epic pick'.
how was your weekend?- did you have an epic pick day?  a banner weekend?  what did you score?
send pics!

happy passover!!
