Weekend Recap: Girls Weekend and The old Lucketts Store

Have you noticed I've been a bit MIA lately?  I feel like it's been forever since I've posted and I sure have missed you all!  Unfortunately, when your laptop decides to spontaneously stop working you are forced to take a little break.  I still haven't found time to get my Macbook into Apple for repairs, so things are going to be a little slow around here until I can get it back up and running.  Don't worry, I'm still working on projects and have some exciting things to share soon.

In the meantime, I've been taking full advantage of the extra free time with girls weekends, lazy Sundays, long shopping trips and being able to go to bed before 12:00.

This past weekend was our annual girls weekend and what girls weekend would be complete without Winery's and vintage market shopping?

There was a lot of drinking, laughs and eating.  Just what every girls weekend is made of, right?

We stopped at a local Winery in MD on Friday night then headed to Leesburg, VA on Saturday to visit Stone Tower Winery and do a bit of shopping.  Just look at this gorgeous view from the winery!

If anyone is familiar with Leesburg, VA then you know a trip there wouldn't be complete without a stop to Lucketts Market.  If you love antique shopping and looking for unique finds then you would LOVE this place.

I couldn't resist a little photo opportunity under the gazebo.  Look at that cute chandelier!

I loved these white washed stone pumpkins!  They were actually hallow inside, which made them perfect for stacking.

Keys anyone?

What about creepy doll heads?
Porcelain baby heads
I actually bought 3 of them for a friend who is a Halloween fanatic.  I thought they would look cool with a battery operated tea light inside.  Nothing like a glowing porcelain doll head to sit on your shelf to creep you out.

I didn't go overboard, but I did buy 4 locker baskets and a few odds and ends that I'll share soon.

Just down the road from Lucketts is another one of my favorite stores, Rust and Feathers.  I was peeling myself away from these two fantastic card catalog pieces.   Both of them could have been turned into gorgeous coffee tables.

This one was less than $200 and I'm so close to going back and purchasing it.  All it needed was a top and caster wheels to turn it into an incredible, usable piece.

After hitting up a few vintage shops and the winery we ended the evening at a fantastic restaurant and bar.  I was a bit tired on Sunday, which made for the perfect excuse to lounge out with friends for a day full of football.

In other news....

If you follow me on Facebook then you probably already know that Home Depot asked me to participate in their Holiday Style Challenge.   Basically, they sent me a bunch of holiday decor, a gift card and "challenged" me to put together the perfect holiday mantel.

I've already picked up wood for a few DIY projects and can't wait to share how I create the perfect holiday mantel.
