Let's Go Shopping

Hi, Everyone. 
Yesterday, I stopped by Queen of Hearts Antiques and Interiors in Buford, for some shopping and inspiration. 
So, grab a glass of iced tea, or beverage of your choice, and let's go shopping. There are lots of things to see.

This store features repurposed items, as well as antiques and decor.
Here's an art piece made from children's wooden building blocks.

A lamp base made from wooden boxes.

A decorative piece shaped like a horse's head...

...and a cowboy boot. Love the paint colors.

The Fall things have started arriving.

Of course, Fall means football...

...and dishes in team colors. Go Dawgs!

Down this aisle...

...soft colors...

...sweet detail on a little chest.

A favorite verse stenciled on glass...

...lots of goodies for styling a cabinet.

Vintage telephone.

I've been seeing lots of owls lately. Have you noticed?

Dried arrangements.

It's almost time to decorate the Fall tree...

...a chest or hutch...

...and get out the pumpkins.
Labor Day is just around the corner and Fall will officially be here.

So, have a safe and fun Labor Day and...

Happy Fall Y'all!

Fall is the most beautiful season of all, in my opinion. Love it! October here is usually gorgeous. Enjoyed the photos. So much to see, so many ideas!

Looks like you had a fun day! I love the football dishes! Happy Labor Day Weekend Babs-enjoy:@)

Babs that looks like a wonderful store! I love the UGA stuff. I just moved to Athens and the football fever is starting for sure! Thanks for sharing at TTF. I'm ready to get my Fall on (well after I return from Paris that is).


Sarah said...

Happy Fall to you, Babs. It's still really hot here, but I've noticed fall colors showing up in the stores. The floral section at the grocery has berries, leaves, and other signs of fall ready for arrangements.

I love these posts! It's like I went shopping there with you. I haven't been to Queen of Hearts in a long time. I'm overdue! Loved seeing some of the goodies for sale there. I especially liked that grey and white cabinet with the glass doors full of old books and white dishes. Hmmm.....great ideas for styling!

Savannah Granny said...

Thanks for taking me shopping with you. There are so many lovely things. I looooove the telephone and my Hollie would want the horse head. Great piece.
Happy Labor day!xoGinger

Pat said...

Another amazing virtual shopping trip, dear friend!!!
Love the hues of the wood used to cut out the horse and boot!!! Oh, I do believe that softly painted adorable chest might have had to come home with me!!!
Seeing all the Fall reminded me that I have those same red and gold floral placemats and need to gather my faux pears for some tablescaping or vignettes!!!
One never knows where inspiration will abound from. . .but always inspiring ideas @ upstairs downstairs!!!

Hi Dear Babs, It still feels like summer here and will until into October so its always hard for me to get into the Fall mood. What a delightful way to spend time, I love to browse the antique and gift shops for ideas. You sure found some great pieces here, love the horse head and boot and great fall decorating ideas. I just recently did the same thing a couple of weekends ago. Such to fun just looking.
Happy Labor Day..........

Great shopping trip, Babs! I am so sorry that the Dawgs did not win last night, but it is early in the season. I am getting ready to publish a post with owl plates that my granddaughter wanted me to buy and, now, I see owls everywhere! Cannot wait, until this Georgia weather cools off!

An Oasis in the Desert said...

Thanks for sharing, Babs! Looks like a really fun place. I was naturally drawn to the Fallish displays -- no surprise there!

Pondside said...

A half hour - just half an hour in that shop, and I'd be a happy woman!
I've noticed all the owls around lately too. My newest grandchild received blankets, sleepers and little dresses decorated with owls.

Judy Biggerstaff said...

I would have loved to been on that shopping trip with you Babs. Wow, lots of things I would have loved to see especially those Halloween items.

Hi Babs,

I'm going to have to make a trip to this antique mall some day; I love the pictures you share with us. My favorites in this post are the gray painted chest and cabinet -- beautiful!! I also love all the little fall vignettes (my favorite time of the year) and the "Happy Fall Y'all" pillow. :)

Have a wonderful weekend!
