I recently visited an antique shop in Dallas and wanted to share this booth with you. It gave me all kinds of design inspiration and was full of the best vintage school items and steel office furniture!

I have baskets like these in my kid’s closets, now I’ll have to pull them out to hang on a wall.

See those little quail eggs on top of the dark glass bottles? They were about $8 each. So if you find a quail egg anywhere, you’d better keep it!

I’m hooked on vintage inspiration! Check out my friend Julia’s Hooked on Houses “Hooked On” party for more fun things.

Don’t forget about my Surprise!

  2. That is a seriously cool set-up there! Of course, if I tried that in my home it would just look messy. 😉 I need a teeny-tiny bit of your style infused into my home. Pretty please?!

  3. I love all things vintage!! Thanks for the inspirations – I am working on some redecorating and this gives me some ideas!!


  4. What wonderful photos – you have captured some great looks here. I must learn to be more patient when browsing vintage stores.
    Please let us know if Amy manages to mail you some eggs successfully – sounds like a highly perilous undertaking !!
    And Amy, if that works, perhaps you have a new item for your Etsy store!

  5. My father in law has 2 quails… they lay eggs constantly but they never hatch… I have TONS of eggs available 🙂 I’d be afraid they’d fall and break and smell horrible. I guess you could blow the insides out? I’m not really down with egg decorating techniques. Haha. I can send you some eggs – if you want some, without the $8 price tag!
