Antiquing in "Juneuary"

What to do when it's June and record setting rainfall?
Go antiquing!

Darting in and out of shops, trying to stay dry, we found this kilim ottoman for a song.
I had no idea where to put it, until I got home. It is perfect in front of the leather chair in the reading room in Asti!

We also found an iron settee, chair and table for the pool house balcony.
It has been a three year search, and of course I don't have a photo since it was raining so hard!

On our way home yesterday, we stopped in the sleepy little town of San Anselmo and braved more rain.
San Anselmo has some great antique stores. I found this lamp! One of a pair, stay tuned to where it is going to go!

Even the Alameda Antique Faire was rained out. Rescheduled for next Sunday, I'm praying for good weather!

Pin It!

Delores that lamp reminds me of one I have in my living room that I just added a PB burlap shade to. Martina

It looks like we are finally going to get a break this the 80's. it's umbrella is getting worn out and I refuse to buy a new one in June!

I covet that squirrel lamp. If it ever goes missing, you know where to look first.

You must be getting all our rain because we have been doing without for a long time. I love that lamp and can't wait to see where you put the pair. I would have snapped those up too!

Feel free to send that rain our way...I love rain...such a blessing. We're experiencing hotter than usual weather...reminds me of summer on the prairies when I was a child. Great finds! Hope that you have more happy hunting...rain or dry. Cherry Kay
