I HEART INSTAGRAM

I find myself stalking and posting on Instagram more and more.  It is very addictive!

Recently,  Emily Henderson hosted an instagram contest where you pick 3 furniture in your house that you would save in a fire.  She picked my teal chairs as one of her 20 furniture she would save (out of 550 entries!).   Yay! Thanks, Emily!  You made my day!


You can check out the other winners here and the 550 other entries here.
I don't know how she narrowed it down to 20 because there are a lot of ridiculously good entries!


I also met a new Instagam friend, Erin @egigliadesign.  I suggest you follow her because she finds the most amazing stuff...






(Are you drooling yet?  Those greek key chairs are to die for!)

She sells all her finds on Etsy - SoignebyEG.  Check it out, here.
And what I am really excited about is she lives 20 minutes away!  I may have finally found a shopping buddy!  (Although we'd probably end up fighting for the same stuff)...


Remember these stools I posted a while back...

Yup, she got them!  I love(hate) her already!
But seriously, can't wait to meet her soon.


And oh,  I did snatch up the Murano chandelier...

She's a beauty!

Wow! That chandelier is sick!! I'm on way to pick up a Craigslist find in 15 minutes!! Vintage chair that I've been searching for for 2 years!! It's the beautiful grey linen chair in Emily Henderson's Eclectic Artsy Odyssey episode on Secrets from a Stylist. And I just missed out on the expandable brass etagere from the 70s that someone was selling for $25!! Still dying over that loss. Ya know the one that sold on 1st Dibs for $2800!! I had no place for it in my house but just wanted it so badly just to covet;)

Congrats on all of your great news! And yes, you two ladies may be competing for the same finds!

I am in love with your chandy! Ok I hearted that etsy store...those chairs are so good! Happy Mother's day!

Love the chandelier! What a great purchase. I say go for it with the shopping buddy. Melissa and I always gravitate towards the same things but we haven't killed each other yet and I wouldn't trade her friendship for the world.

Congrats on your Instagram selection - I would totally save those chairs too. So glad you got the chandelier (may have said so on Instagram already but never hurts to hear it again). And so cool you found a new shopping buddy -- too fun!
