My Favorite Finds This Summer

My summer was an interesting one. Doctors orders prohibited me to drive all summer so I had to rely on my dear friend Lynne, my parents, husband and other generous friends to drive me from here to there. Despite that, I was able to find some wonderful decorator items or friends just brought in their amazing things to me. Now that life is back to normal, I can reflect on my summer and see that despite how uneventful it was compared to past years, I had a great time too. Life has just taken on a different perspective for me. I am enjoying it more, not taking things so seriously and trying to live for the moment. Life is short, say hello and goodbye like you mean it.
Around early September I felt like I was getting back into the groove again, I wanted to merchandise, I could take an interest in all my customers. Lynne, Charlotte, Pamela and Nancy have been a big part of that. Without them, Thea's Interiors would have closed its doors but because of them I could take my time and when I was ready, take over the reins.
Thea's Interiors is creatively, emotionally and product wise, stronger than ever.
Here are just a few of my favorite things from the summer, many of them bring a big smile to my face because of the richness, love and history that they carry with them.

Vintage porcelain glove mold , old plastic boccie balls and bright yellow letters.
This yellow either makes me cringe because of its brightness or makes me smile with sunshine!
Peggy Del Rosario hand painted chandelier.

Sweet cherub with wheat, concrete statue.

I always love the vintage 1917, metal letters!

"Monogrammed Heirlooms", embroidered hand towel.
She is the best!

I found this amazing zinc shelf at Farm Chicks this summer. The pillows are of course, "Great Findz" Dawn is amazing!!!

Speaking of Dawn! she dragged me over to meet Dewayne and his fantastic vintage British trolley signs.
Love it!!

"Moss" makes these hand crocheted necklaces. The cutest jewelry I have in the store by far!

"Max & Lucie" is now part of our jewelry family! Her designs are fresh , colorful and a joy to wear! I was thrilled to find her and for her to be at Thea's Interiors.

This is it! of course I can't pass up a good pair of shoe forms! Withies gave me this great hand painted poem and the flash cards are hot, hot!!!
Thank you!! for everything!!
