The Salvage Collection "Ashbury" and a new centerpiece


Goodness Gracious.

You'd think I'd just settle down and eat Christmas cookies. But no, Christmas brings out the nesting in me.

And I wanted to share this awesome blogger lady with you. Please check out Amy at the Salvage Collection.

She writes the funniest of posts. Sometimes she is talking colors, sometimes the fun things her kids have done, and other times writing about her furniture that she is selling. There is also the recent post on Bacon Flavored Frosting too...which is also a good read.

I HAD TO HAVE THIS PIECE.

No, seriously.

Like bad enough to start begging people I work with that live near Amy to be a delivery person 'cause we are seriously almost an entire state away from each other. I was at least heading to her state where I could meet up with my coworker last week. So, me and Ashbury made the ride home together. It was dark and snowy. And, no, the table didn't talk...but...she was carrying other precious cargo that made my ride much better.

I may have also mentioned that the Christmas cookies she had blogged about looked delish as we were setting our deal and said it wouldn't bother me if she sent some along with the table. HINT HINT. So, when I spotted an itty bitty little baggy tied to my table....I wondered. Being the relaxed sort, I waited until I was driving 70 mph down the interstate to try that whole snake the arm back around to the back seat and pull idea. I couldn't locate a small baggie tied to the table leg.

Used to be I could put a baby's binkie in it's mouth in a backward facing car seat while driving but evidently if you don't practice, those arm gymnastics don't remain.

Did find a McDonald's at near Syracuse and made looking for cookies a top priority once my truck had come to an almost complete stop. YES COOKIES, happy dance!

I alternated cookies with nasty fast food.

No, there are no photos of me jamming cookies in my mouth in the dark. (Thankfully)


I do have a few more shots of this awesome table. It did have a purpose. Lexi takes piano lessons these days in the house and I needed a spot to set this up permanently. Also, I plan on getting some clear plexi glass to cover the top so I can rest the keyboard directly on it. I don't want to mar that awesome game board that is there. So pretty.

I am not sure how long piano lessons will last, but this table will last for many more years.

Alright, one last photo showing the little green and turquoise accents! They are both my daughter's favorite colors, so I thought it was fitting. I love the super worn look. So pretty and those colors are just peeking through.



And on the subject of birds, I made this little centerpiece for my table the other day. I went with wintery vs. Christmassy so I could leave it out for a bit. It's not a real candle, but one of those ones you add batteries and it flickers like a real one. LOVE IT!



How is your nest lookin'? I hope it's fabulous and lovely!

  2. Let me list the things on this post that impress me:
    1. the table. are you kidding me? what a great piece and a terrific find! and it looks like something one would find in mitra's home.
    2. the fact that you tried to find the cookies while barreling down the highway. i had no idea that i had the superpower of hushing a baby in the backseat until i needed it. now i'm sad that it may be gone! i hadn't thought to practice to keep it up.
    3. the centerpiece. the colors are so peaceful yet bright! thanks for sharing.
