Day 458

Looks like I'm not the only one with antique shopping on the brain lately. My Notting Hill shared a great-looking shop that has several locations in Virginia, Random Harvest. I love, love, love this tufted sofa, and the semi-symmetrical arrangement happening around it.

Mrs. Blandings discovered this lovely shop, which is filled to the brim with treasures (you're going to want to click to enlarge this image to get the full effect). This gorgeous desk (or one like it) is on our dream list for Wes' office. Pieces like that are just destined to become heirlooms, and are therefore more justifiable in my book. Though I suspect this Italian beauty is much too unjustifiable for our budget.

Eddie Ross and Heather of Habitually Chic took the Hell's Kitchen Flea Market by storm, and each came home with some great finds (including that pair of marble lamps, which Heather scored for just $100).

Joni of Cote de Texas brought back the most drool-worthy images of the week. The shop was so gorgeous, in fact, that it made her want to redecorate. Coming from a woman with a beautiful home, that says a lot, I think! But, you know what they say about the grass always being greener.

Is this place not fabulous?!

Found any great antiquing spots lately? Leave a comment and let me know!

My fiance and I were at Random Harvest the day we got engaged (Alexandria location). And there were SO MANY items there that we just loved and could easily see filling our home. When we purchase our new home we said its definitely worth trekking down from Philadelphia to their Bethesda location. And the prices were reasonable.
