Finds For Friends

First up...Pamela, who was searching for comfortable end chairs for her dining table. She wanted something fun with color and I found these Hollywood Regency blue velvet beauties...

They are trimmed in a lovely silver nailhead and are quite comfortable.. 

We both liked how they contrasted with the more modern teak dining set. It's unexpected and fresh. 

After she bought them we both agreed that her old beige cotton curtains had to go, so in with a soft blue/grey silk curtains. Thanks Pamela for sharing!

My Latest Find

I pretty much search daily on Craigslist and recently came across this light fixture...

It had me at brass and Lucite! So off to Georgetown I went with cash in hand. Upon arriving I was pleasantly surprised to meet a guy who is as interested in vintage lighting as I am. He has a whole office filled with gorgeous brass Chandeliers and unique colored glass globes, mostly Mid Century Modern. In fact he has a fabulous Vintage Lightolier Chandelier for sale right now...

I see it in a warm semi-modern dining room, possibly one like either of these...

Instead of the chocolate walls, I'd probably go for charcoal...

Hope someone gets it quick!

Time is of the Essence

Okay, I promise I'm finished posting photos of myself and my favorite little men. I am ready to start concentrating on my other favorite I'm planning on a weekly or maybe bi-weekly segment called Finds For Friends. Over the years I've found countless items on Craigslist for my friends, from dining chairs to dressers to barcarts. I love a good find and enjoy finding the perfect piece of furniture for my mates, so I thought why not share with everyone...who doesn't love show and tell!?!

Also, while I don't have the time to create a lot of posts for Fresh Quince, I do have time to pin or re-pin images onto Pinterest. Here a few recent random, but favorite pins:

Hope you all are having a great restful weekend, while I'm over here just a tad sleep deprived :)!
