Garden and Glitz

When it's pouring down rain, what's a girl to do?
Go shopping!
I stopped in Queen of Hearts in Buford to see what was new. They were fluffing for Mother's Day, and there were so many pretty and practical things to see. 
Here are just a few...well, maybe more than a few. Grab a cup of coffee or tea, and shop with me.


A little "porch" with a cute bench and baskets of flowers.


On the left side of the "porch", a potting bench and concrete lambs ~


Rustic furniture in another booth ~


Fun and colorful ~ They were changing things around when I was there, so I didn't get many photos in this booth.


Here's a fun idea they did with a screen door ~

Now, to the glitz ~


Glitzed up armoire ~

Embellished with vintage jewelry ~


A closer look at the top ~ see the tiara?


Even a poster of Audrey Hepburn was embellished with vintage jewelry. 


Another booth had a gorgeous pink ball gown draped above the sign.

Lace doilies for a bra ~


Ooh, la la ~

A bench covered with sheet music ~ 


Paper flower garland above another booth ~


Flower close up ~

Thanks for going shopping with me.
Which of the looks did you like? Garden or Glitz? 

                                                 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I can't believe it! This is the fourth straight day we've had rain! 
The sun just came out for about 30 seconds, and I can see a patch of blue sky. Yay!
I'm headed out to check on the veggies in the garden. I forgot to tie up the tomatoes.
Hugs and Happy Sunday!
Babs

Oh my goodness, so much fun stuff to see. Love the concrete lambs and the cow painting. How fun is that. Hugs, Marty

Ellie VanCaster said...

Yes both please. I loved the ohs and ahs of one and the fun glitz of the other. ;-)
Have a great week.

Kathy Moreland said...

I'm needing a Queen of Hearts fix!! I love that place. I wish this rain would stop for a few days. I really am starting to get a bit stir crazy!! I love the cow print, and the birds in the same booth. So pretty!

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

The glitz was fun but I loved the garden best!

Blondie's Journal said...

Oh! I love the concrete lambs! What a really neat shop and great way to spend a few hours. Rain here today, too. It seems to come every 2 days, but I guess that's good for the flowers and plants.

Have a great day!

XO,
Jane

Sarah said...

Babs, it's always fun to tag along to Queen of Hearts Antiques. Wish you would send us some of your rain. Dry, dry, dry here!

Mary said...

I'm more of a garden than glitz girl but I love the glammed up armoire with the vintage jewelry! It's raining cat & dogs here too, yesterday and through tomorrow. Some retail therapy is definitely in order! Thanks for the fun outing :)

Marigene said...

That would be a fun place to shop! Love the music sheet bench.

Kelly said...

I haven't shopped there in a long time. I love seeing the pics of it! I liked that cow picture that was in one of the booths. Cute!! I'm sick of the rain too. However, I'm under the weather so it might as well be raining, I guess. Today has been pretty though!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Cute cow painting.

Helen's Decor said...

Hi Babs! It seems like it has been raining more than it actually has been in our area of SE Tennessee. Looks like your mind and mine followed the same path. See my post to understand!

Pat said...

What a great shop.I see lots of treasures I could bring home. I love visiting places like this.

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

What fun! I like both the garden and glitz but my practical sides leans towards the garden! I like the cement lambs!

Carlene @ Organized Clutter said...

I love the jewelry embellished armoire. The sheet music bench was cool and I love screen doors too.

Carol said...

Wow, what a fun place! I really liked the bench covered in sheet music and that paper flower garland -- so lovely!

Scribbler said...

The armoire is too clever. How great would that be in a dressing room?

Olive said...

Garden for me. I like rustic garden furniture like that.

Alycia Nichols said...

I just got a total case of "chicken skin" when I saw that armoire!!!!! You have given me a GREAT idea for one of the armoires in our master BR!!!!!! Oh, wow, Babs...that is SO cool! What a fun store!!! I also REALLY like the bench covered with sheet music. That looks like a fun project for my piano bench!!!

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

What a fun place...the perfect spot to spend a rainy afternoon. Our weather, believe it or not, has been perfect. A little chilly but no rain! Hope you get some sun this week...have a good one!

Pat Cantwell said...

Babs,
Thanks for taking me along with a virtual shopping trip, dear freind!!!
Love, love, love those concrete sheep!!!
Lots of glamour, indeed!!!
Still sold and rainy and windy here on the Prairie!!!
Hoping for a switch in our weather soon!!!
Fondly,
Pat

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

Love it all, especially the white bench with all those sweet pillows, and of course the sheep!!! But I must say that is the most unique armoire I've ever seen...was it for sale? It must have cost a fortune!!!

Thanks so much for sharing at Amaze Me Monday!
Blessings,
Cindy

Oh I've seen the glitz in person! I shop there also!
