Flea markets of Paris...

When we visited Paris last month our goal, aside from eating and drinking everything in site was to shop.  I know it is terrible right!  We were in the process of trying to fill our first container to ship back to the States.  We started out in Paris at the flea markets and could have shopped there for days but as you know travel does not always allow for days and days of endless browsing and then going back to make final purchases and decisions.  Things move so fast it can be hard to know if you have made the right choices for weeks to come.  I know I should have bought the chairs that are shown below, I am kicking myself now for doubting my first inclination.  I love these chairs and I hope that they find a wonderful home somewhere in the world.. they are so amazing! 

Aside from that I tried not to pass up anything that spoke to me.   I finally had to realize that anything is possible with the right amount of determination and dare I say money behind it.  We did end up dragging dress forms and multiple goodies back with us on the metro, yep they looked at us like we were crazy but whatever, they did that every time we spoke to them in English after starting with "bonjour".  It was amazing to buy furnishings and accessories with the idea that we would be having them here in such a short time.  I am looking forward to getting all of our goodies and setting up for our first container sale!

We loved all of the displays, the talent in these flea markets blows away what we see here at home.  Although I must say that we have to remember these are permanent spaces not pop ups.

This space was amazing, I wanted every book!  I love the green blue!

This big guy was so cool and calm, he just wanted to chill not shop.

These two I did not manage to leave.  They are perfect and I love them.  I will also love them when they get home to me in my living room thank you very much!

I did pass this sweet little thing up.. I was tired and did not even ask the price - a mistake I know!


This vendor said this was a painting of his mother in law.  His booth was super cool!

Grey in the Hamptons..

The thought of summering in the Hamptons seems fabulous and this would be the perfect spot to catch up some R & R and see how things are done on the other side of the states.   This is just how I would design my beach house if I was so lucky to have one a simple modern eclectic mix!

Flea Market Sunday...

Sunday was a very very busy day!!  I hit the flea market in the morning only to find these sweet things!!  I am a sucker for LV and vintage pieces make my head spin a little!! She had a great selection and some Chanel pieces that made my heart skip a beat, unfortunately a little out of my budget! All in all it was a pretty good day- there were a few things on my wish list as always that I did not find but I got some fun pieces non the less.

It was gloomy all morning but that kept things a little more relaxed for the shopping.  I completely loved this space the lighting and furniture where fantastic!   

He hand makes the lights by adding in the mirror on each piece.  LOVE!

I bought a pair of these for inside our cabana.  I cannot wait for it to be complete so we can decorate and actually use it! 

I have completely fallen for these jeans from Gap that I picked up on Friday! 

After the flea market I stopped at the nursery quickly and fell in love with this hydrangea, I have a weakness for these too!

 These are two ladies that had to come home with me..  The little vintage bag is snakeskin and so so cute.
