No, not those type of fleas. This weekend was the Nashville Flea Market. If I'm lucky, the Flea weekend starts on a Friday and ends on Sunday. This Friday, mom and I met up with Melissa and Melanie to hunt for treasure. We arrived around 9am and I immediately found this wonderful spun fiberglass patio set from the 1960s.

I could just see this image from House Beautiful in my head.

Unfortunately, it was out of my budget but I did come home with a very cool, very large wooden "A" in an Art Deco script. It is the latest addition to the Bombshell Boudouir decor. For some reason, it reminds me of Laverne's "L" on Laverne and Shirley or the Beverly Hills Hotel Sign font. I would love to know it's history.

After the Flea, we headed to East Nashville to my favorite local mid century modern shop Wonders on Woodland, had lunch at Mad Donnas (Turkey Melt is the best) and then headed to OMG (Old Made Good) for some funky art and vintage therapy. I found an amazing vintage blouse that will allow me to channel Emily Henderson. Yes, I am slightly obsessed with her but not in a creepy way. I plan to look just like this wearing it minus the blonde hair.

Saturday was a lot of this in the backyard taking it easy with the kids and the dogs:

Sunday started with one more round at the Flea to see if more vendors had arrived. Surprisingly enough, I scored a mid century modern bench to go under my HOTEL sign for only $20.00!! I have to recover the cushions but I think it will look great and what a deal.

The weekend is now winding down but what a great one!


  1. Glad you had a successful flea! So sad I missed it!!!

  2. Too bad about the patio set, but I love the bench! Great score!

  3. I'm glad you are channeling Emily Henderson and not Laverne!

  4. We saw that spun fiberglass set too! There was a very similar (if not the same one) at the flea last year, and I blogged about it then and used the same inspiration pic - great minds??

    Love your bench. I need to show the odd little drum table I bought. I tend to go quirky with my finds. I love your "A" too. What a great weekend!

  5. Sounds like you had a great week-end. Absolutely love the "A" and can't wait to see the bench when it is done.
    The man on your dock with the dog looks like he is in heaven.


Thank you for taking the time to comment!! I love hearing from you!
