Scott's Antique Finds and Wow Us Wednesday #7

3.23.2011

A couple of weekends ago I went back to Scott's Antique Market in Atlanta. Now most of the things in this huge place are priced way over what I have in my pockets, but I did find a couple of small things perfect for my equestrian room again. One was real cheap and the other was a bit of a splurge, but I loved it and had to have it.


 This is my cheap find. I love the scene on this little pitcher and just look at the curve on that handle.


 The lady who had this in her booth was packing up and the asking price was $12 and she sold it to me for $10. Every dollar counts these days.


 This was the splurge. This wonderful super soft pillow with this dog toile print on the front. The lady that runs this booth almost missed this sale because for some reason she is never in her booth to tell you how much anything is. I went back three times and the lady in the booth next to hers was basically running this booth for the missing owner, but she didn't know the price of this one so I waited.


 


I just knew it would be perfect in my sitting room with the equestrian theme.


This is the mark on the bottom of the pitcher. Anyone recognize it?


When I brought my new little pillow home I started moving all the pillows around on this red sofa
trying to make it work here. Tell me you do that, too. I had two other equestrian needlepoint pillows here and added it and it just didn't work. Hate when that happens. After rearranging these pillows on this sofa a gazillion times I remembered the multiple patterned pillow from my sun room and then the monogrammed pillow placed in front was finally looking right to me. Oh, but wait....


......then this pillow that I had popped into my head. That happens a lot you know. I thought the monogrammed red plaid would be cute, too.


And the finished look, I think. Are we ever finished? Not me! I see my assistant popped in this photo.
I know you are probably tired of seeing this room, but I am always tweaking this or that. I saw several tole tray tables for sale at Scott's, but out of the price range I want to pay. Still on the hunt for that.

This really wasn't much of a wow, but I have been gone all day and had this post ready so I will just let y'all wow us this week. Kitchen or bedroom reveal will come soon. Haven't had time to take pictures yet.

Party guidelines:
1. Link your intended post URL and not your whole blog.
2. Please link back to the party in your post so others can easily find it and join in if they want. Party links here or on my sidebar does not work.
3. If you find your link deleted then there was no link back to the party. Just add the link and try again.
4. Try to visit a few participants. You will surely be inspired by all the creativity out there and may find a new blog to follow or a new recipe or project to try.

I hope you will become a follower here if you are new.

Now Wow Us!

  2. I always enjoy all your pillows Kim..and I do not get tired of this room, I always see something new I have not seen before. Now I do think Bailey is not happy with the pillow arrangement, she was very content before:) Thanks for hosting. Cute pitcher too!

  3. So funny that you posted this today. I was googling Scott Antiques Market a few hours ago, and wondering if it was worth the trip. I love your finds!

  4. Kim, I love the "cheap" and the "splurge". The green is lovely, I do have a bit of green and white myself, sooo very English! The marking reminds me of Nikko, but not quite. Can you believe I made it to your party??? Yeah! xoxo tami

  5. I love both of your finds ~ the cheap one and the splurge. Don't you love it when you find things that you know will be perfect in your home? If you had not bought that darling pillow, you would have regretted it. Thanks for hosting such a fun party!

    Love,
    Susan and Bentley

    Thanks for having us.

  7. I love your little pitcher. I have a very similiar pitcher I bought at a antique store, I'm suspecting mine isnt antique but I love mine just the same. I did not get the great deal that you got. Beautiful pillow!!!

  8. I love your pitcher, Kim! And that pillow is just gorgeous! Glad you were finally able to locate the vendor! lol Happy week!...hugs...Debbie

  11. Great finds Kim! I'm never tired of looking at your house! I've never been to Scott's(probably a good thing). Is Scott's open every weekend?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Kim, I am so happy to be participating in WOW! I love your antique finds! I would have wanted those too! Each one is really perfect for you horse inspired room. That pillow was worth 3 trips. It is so unique!

    I often sit looking at the things I want to decorate and soak it in before I move it around, so I know about finding the "just right" look!

    Beautiful and well styled. And NO we are never done decorating!

  13. Lucky you to get to go to Scott's! What great treasures you found. Maybe one day I can make the trip. Thanks for hosting the party Kim.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I love both your finds...the splurge and the pitcher. Why don't you pick up an old tray and buy a tole pattern, trace it on the tray, and paint it yourself? You are certainly talented enough to try it! You can find the pattern in one of the decorative artist's books where they sell painting supplies... Just a thought- xxoo Diana

  15. Love your room Kim and no where near to being tire of seeing it! Great finds, fit your room perfectly!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Love your new pitcher and the pillow. Both are fabulous. I also really like the arrangement of prints you have over the sofa. I think that is the best look you have had for a while. Love this room. Hugs, Marty

    ReplyDelete
  17. Kim, I never get tired of seeing your beautiful home. I love the pitcher and the pillow is gorgeous! I am glad you kept going back to the booth because the pillow is perfect in your room.
    Thanks for hosting.

    Sherry

  18. Great finds? I love anything toile, and the pillow looks great in your fabulous room. Thanks for sharing, Peggy

    ReplyDelete
  19. This looks like a big WOW to me. The pitcher is beautiful and the pillow fits in so well. When I bring something new home (to keep, not sell) I sometimes end up re-arranging ten other things just to fit one in that perfect spot.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Kim, I love the pillow..don't blame you for waiting around for the vendor.. and the pitcher/jug is so pretty. Of course green is my favorite color. I do hope you don't ever stop decorating with the equestrian theme. It looks so good in that room. Or if you tire of it and decide to have a yard sale, please let me know. :)

  21. I love the pitcher. I keep wanting to drive up to Scott's but have heard the prices are more than I want to pay (I'm horribly cheap!) but $10 is right up my alley!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Kim I love this room and never get tired of seeing it. What a cute pitcher and I really like that pillow! That's something I would wait around for too!! Thanks for hosting, Martina

  23. Thank You for hosting today..........Julian

    ReplyDelete
  24. Kim, I know what you mean about pillows....I have gotten 6 new ones so far. Four will stay, and the other 2 are under consideration...oops, make that 7 new ones! It's cheaper than a room re-do and gives such a new look. Good job! Linda

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have always wanted to go to Scott's, but I have never made it. I love your purchases!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm totally Wowed Kim! Looks beautiful!

    No projects or tweeking for me at all right now. Long weekend last week and leaving again tomorrow to go to my step-mother's. She has finally agreed to go to a retirement home. I will be there again for a long 4 day weekend. Her apartment is large & she is able to take quite a bit with her, but there is so much packing and such to get ready for the move, then we will have to get her home ready to sell. She live about 275 miles from me so it makes the job even bigger. Thanks for letting me ramble. I should probably put this in a post.

  27. I love anything toile! Your finds are all the better thanks to the low prices!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love toile, and seeing a toile hunting dog pattern is fantastic! I may have to hunt down some of it for my man cave makeover!! Thanks for hosting this fun party Kim.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I have always wanted to go to Scott's, you found some wonderful things. I love the pillow, I have an absolute weakness for pillows! Thanks for hosting today!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love everything that you found, but I am in love with your couch and pillows. I am crazy about throw pillows, and yours are lovely. This is my first time linking to your Wow Me Wednesday. I can't wait to visit everyone.

  37. Kim, you did WOW me! I LOVE this room. Somehow I have not seen this room before and I love every inch of it. I have always loved this look and my family room is headed in this direction, but until blogging I never knew the term equestrian before. It is definitely my style as I love, love, love the look. Your pitcher is perfect in there and oh! I love your toile dog pillow. Does your husband throw all the pillows across the room when he tries to sit on the couch? LOL!
    Love this post,
    Donna

  38. Great finds! I hate it when people have a booth at a show and they don't have prices and/or they aren't helpful. :-( thanks for hosting this blog party!

  44. Kim, gorgeous pillow...I have a brown pitcher with the same backstamp, asked Nancy at Nancy's Daily Dishes if she recognized it, was told it was a new piece, probably from China. I'm happy no matter it isn't a "real" treasure.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Love that pitcher! and your equestrian room is great. What fun!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Kim, you gave me a giggle as you sound like you are just like me...i tweak constantly and I actually enjoy every minute of it and I don't believe we ever get done. Love your room, love everyone of your pillows and your new one is perfect for your room and the teapot is adorable, love the little feet on it.

  53. Kim, these are both great finds! I so want to go to Scott's Antique Market sometime. The little pitcher has fabulous detail. Loving the feet! Can't believe you took that home for $10. The green toile is perfect for your room, and the mix of pillows on the sofa looks terrific. ~ Sarah

  58. Hello Kim! I joined your "Wow Wednesday!" Thank you for the opportunity.

    I love your place. It's so refreshing and homey. The red sofa also tells it all.

    I wish to know you better. I hope to read more posts from you. I would also be happy if we could develop a connection by following each others blogs.

    wishing you more wow wednesdays!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Wow! You've got quite a party going on here. I've been MIA lately, not doing anything too creative...outside cleaning up the garden. That's not pretty work. Anyway thanks for hosting. Your last picture belongs in a magazine.

    ReplyDelete
  60. LOVE the dog pillow, Kim..and the pitcher, especially the curve! I also enjoy this equestrian theme you have put together, great touches everywhere.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Great finds... love the pitcher.
    Your linky party is going really well, congratulations!
    Love popping over and looking at photos of your beautiful home. I've been doing lot of sewing... think I need to do some DIY so I can link up :)

  62. Kim those are great finds! Also I LOVE your chair!!!

  63. Your hunt room is turning out so well, Kim. I love the footed pitcher!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Thanks Kim for your lovely comments, I haven't changed blogs completly... I've just been neglecting my family blog. So much has happened in the last two months. Orsen has broken his leg {chipped his tibia and may need surgery}, burnt his face, fell over and hurt his shoulder and needed stitches to his toe.
    He wins the clumsy husband of the year award!
    Anyway, I'll be back posting on my family blog tomorrow. I have 2 companies sending me products to review... cheese sticks and hot cross buns, yummy! So I'd better catch up quick before they arrive.

  67. Hi Kim, I love your finds at Scotts. My sister-in-law lives near Atlanta and we are going to Scotts soon. I've never been, but I can't wait. I hope to find some things that aren't too pricey, too. I'm linking up today for the first time. I'm fairly new to blogging and I'm just now joining the parties. Thanks so much for hosting.

  69. I love how the pitcher has little feet.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Kim, I'm finally getting a chance to read all of your wonderful posts from the last few days. I love your new pitcher, and it was a bargain at only $10! The pillow was worth going back time and time again to get the price, it looks perfect in your room. I'm always rearranging pillows too it seems and I realized the other day that I have one pillow that is still in the plastic wrap that it came in! It was a Christmas present and I love this pillow but haven't found the perfect place for it yet!

  71. What a great pitcher, Kim! And footed, too! I like when you show this room because it looks so comfy, cozy and inviting.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Hi Kim!

    Your fun finds make great little touches in that beautiful room. It may not seem like much of a "wow" to you, but that's because other times you literally knock our socks off! Your little touches are a "wow" to me!

    I finally made it to your party. I've been wanting to join, but it seems I haven't gotten much done lately. I finished two little crafts this week, so I linked them up! :)

    Thanks for hosting a beautiful party. You are such a lovely presence in the blogosphere!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Sometimes you just have to splurge. I am very aware of the money I spend on our house and am usually very frugal. I make sure that what I buy is something I LOVE. Having said that, if I see something I fall in love with I buy it...even if it's more than I usually pay. It's those pieces that make the rooms happier and more ME. :) I love that pitcher. That was a great deal!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Hi Kim! I just absolutely adore your sitting room Kim. Love the dog toile pillow and love the chair it is sitting on! Thanks so much for hosting another great party! :-)

    I just linked up a tablescape inspiration; it's nothing I did, but it did wow me, so I hope it goes along with your party.

  84. Hi Kim...

    My friend, I just adore your sitting room with the lovely equestrian theme! I have always wanted to do a room this way but haven't! I love the look and feel of anything equestrian...it certainly does carry a sweet ambiance all of its own! Your room has evolved into a real beauty, my friend! Love your newest treasure finds! The olive green transferware pitcher is gorgeous and looks so pretty topped off with the greenery! Your animal print ottoman just looks gorgeous...I love the vignette that you have created for it! Now...onto that fabulous green toile dog pillow! It was certainly worth the wait, dear friend...it is gorgeous! It looks sooo perfect sitting in that beautiful chair! You did GOOD, Girlfriend!!! Thank you sooo much for sharing more of your beautiful home with us...this pretty sitting room is one of my favorite rooms at your place!!!

    Also...thank you so much for hosting this sweet Weds. party for all of us! I was just tickled pink to be able to join in this week!

    Warmest spring wishes,

  85. I'm a newbie with antiques but I'm enjoying it so much! I'm also loving going to flea markets. Last Sunday I found a really cute cottage style blue chair and a mirror. All for $12,00! I felt really happy because I'm redecorating my mudroom for Spring/Summer and I want it to be very "shabby-chic". How can I go wrong with a chair and a mirror for that much? They're adorable! Besides, my husband loved the price too! ;-)

    Great party, Kim! So many beautiful things here!!!


    I hope you're having a great day!

  86. Hi Kim,
    Love your new pitcher and pretty pillow.
    You are so right our SIL's are not paid squat compared to the northern state law enforcement agency.
    In Boston they could make up to 150,ooo compared to 30 some here.
    BTW...I'm on my way to Emory right now. Do you live anywhere near there?
    It would be nice to meet sometime in the future. Just a thought.
    Enjoy your day!

  87. Just want to say hello - saw your blog on someone else's and when I saw Scott's Antique Market - I knew you lived by me - Kennesaw.

    Hi.

  88. Sigh. I love the red, Kim.
    I will keep touches of red, but I am ever so slowly and sadly neutralizing the reds in our home since I am staging it to sell. The red front door color was the first to go (Roses are Red, Front Doors are Blue :), so that when I drive up to the house I am reminded that I wanna move into an old cottage downtown, and that I have to depersonalize this one somewhat :)
    I love these parties--SO MANY GREAT IDEAS!
    I actually make a cup of Earl Gray tea and a 100 calorie bag of Orville R. (you think I'm gonna try and spell his last name? Uh, no.) and read through the posts that catch my eye. I learn so much!
    Thank you for hosting--I brought Bailey some treats for being such a good host.
    :)
    HUGS!

  89. Always gorgeous Kim! You are amazing.

    I can't believe how many entries there are for the party, I could spend all week following the links. Too fun.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Kim, I'm always so impressed with how you can move things about in your lovely home & still have them work in other rooms.
    I really learn so much from all your switches. I wish I had your energy to do it here. LOL
    I'm still waiting for you to come do my den bookshelves for me! ;-)

    Kudos on the neat pillow & pitcher you found. Good eye!

    ReplyDelete
  91. I love your new finds - especially that sweet pitcher. Of course, I also think you have a swell assistant. My little assistant is wearing a baby onesie these days so she won't lick the scars from her surgery. It's very cute.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I could harldly take in the items you were talking about because I was so entranced with that absolutely beautiful sofa of yours....is it red? raspberry? Ooooooh I love it!

    Thanks for hosting Wow Us Wednesday, btw.

  101. Am I always moving things around in my house???? Ha Ha Ha Ha....is that a trick question?
    Glad you are finding a few treasures at Scott's!

    ReplyDelete
  102. it is all beautiful. I remember trying to find a certain table, when I did I started jumping up and down. I paid the asking price on that one.....funny how clapping your hands and jumping up and down is not a great bargaining tool.
