On another note, I came in to work Saturday morning and the vintage toilet out front had been knocked over and broken by some drunk imbecile. The crappy (no pun intended, yeah actually pun indended) thing about it is that it is from 1930 and worth quite a bit and there is really no way to replace it. These toilets aren't exactly in production today. So sadly, no more old toilet.
Thanks so much for reading....You know you are special because you are reading my blog! Have an amazing day. I will post pics asap. I am just waiting for the *furniture fairy* to drop off some new stuff. Hurry up mother.

Much apologies to my poor neighbors who have no safe hour of the day which they can have their windows open. I believe it was about 10 pm when I was spray painting this little dandy.
I couldn't bear to look at the dilapidated window pane any longer, and I had some chalkboard scraps so voila!
My near obsession with birds and lavender has moved to the front of the store.
Precious little corner cabinet most likely from an old bathroom. I feel like I am always saying this but you guessed it...it is sold, but I thought I would share it anyway.
A little late in the season but I found this in the back room last week. It is a little planter that hangs on the wall. Very cute and I put a great price on it!
The screen below is sold as well but too bad, you have to look at it since it is so lovely.
Oh cute little black wicker stools...
Black and chartreuse table and chairs I am working on. It is not complete but what can I say, I had to make room on my patio so here they are.
Just some trivia for y'all: Chartreuse is yellow-green like the color of grass that hasn't been watered or of a broccoli's stem. Thanks wikipedia! I thought that was a hilarious description of the mouthwatering shade of green I love so much. unwatered grass wha wha
This is an absolutely impractical piece of furniture in today's cell phone era, but is very charming none the less. This is a phone table. There is even a little notch cut out on the edge of the table top for the phone cord.
Oh and here is where the cuties come in. My babies came in for a while this week. Reese is obsessed with the fake bread for some strange reason (she takes after her mommy I guess!)

My mother gave me the fabulous idea to host martini Fridays here at the store once a month or so. We thought it would be a great way to get together and relax after work and shop of course!
I was thinking about doing special sales each time (ie 25% off anything that hangs, or is white etc) and giving a gift to anyone who brings a friend. Something along those lines. I know Fridays are busy so any input regarding day and time would be much appreciated.
When I walked in to the store this morning I was not sure what the day had in store so I snapped this picture of the martini glass with the intent of putting it on this post. As it turns out, it has been pretty busy and wouldn't you know it, the entire set of glasses sold!

This blue and white cabinet is also a brand new addition here at TVM. However, I barely had a chance to snap a picture of it as it sold merely one hour after we brought it through the doors. Our lovely customer Sharon bought it to use as a sewing table. It will be perfect because the table folds up for times when the sewing projects are on hold and the machine can be neatly stowed away inside. I love it when something practical is also pretty.
More pink and white...
These pillows are handmade locally out of vintage chenille bedspreads. They are truly charming in person. Chenille scottie dogs are coming soon. They are adorable as well.
The mirror pictured below is beautiful and my favorite part is the brown/black combination. We have been taught that this is an off limits color combo but I am really loving it lately. It is hanging above the new wicker chair and just looks smashing.
Red as usual. The little dresser is one that I brought down to replace the yellow one that sold a couple weeks ago. It did not last long either! Pam saw this little gem in the store one day, loved it, and couldn't stop thinking about it once she got home. Her response when asked where she will put it "I have no idea" Something so cute can go just aout anywhere. In the Miranda Lambert video for "The house that built me" there is a beautiful farm house with a dresser on the front porch. A-dorable.

New gorgeousness at the market
New black dresser with glass knobs...SO cute.
GORGEOUS black and cream pitcher. This photo just doesn't do it justice.
