European Flea Market-Jayson Home & Garden

I had such a wonderful time at the preview for the Jayson Home & Garden European Flea Market.  I would like to extend my thanks to the wonderful folks at Jayson Home, as well as a personal thank you to Abbe, who sent me the invitation.  Thanks Abbe!

This is the tent where most of the Flea items were found.  Isn’t it pretty?  I can’t tell you how nice it was to be outside looking at gorgeous furniture & not freezing to death.  Spring has FINALLY sprung in Chicago.

One thing the European Flea was definitely not lacking in, chairs:

There were also a lot of pretty little things that I adored:

I MUST have those bookends & those lovely suitcases. The whole place was packed full of beauty:

And there was even a monkey!

All in all, I could’ve spent days wondering through the market & the store itself. There are just too many treasures to see.  If you are in the Chicagoland area this weekend, make sure you visit this fantastic market. Have a great weekend!

Let’s Shed Some Light on the Subject…

With these amazing lamps I found at Jayson Home & Garden (which is where I will be tonight previewing their new European Flea Market Collection).  I am bringing my camera & will post all about it next week!  Anyway, to the lamps:

If I had a cabin in the mountains of Wyoming, this would be in my den.  I know it’s a little disturbing for some folks, but growing up with people who had whole walls of dead animals on their walls makes me kind of love it!

I also love this photographer’s lamp.  This would be great as a pair on bedside tables.  More of my favorites after the jump:

Wexford Girl

I was thrilled to see that one of my favorite artists/bloggers, Annie Galvin (A.K.A. Wexford Girl), has been commenting on the ol’ Big Daddy recently.  I am a huge fan of her imaginative pieces:


Some of these prints I found through her Etsy shop, others through 3 Fish Studios. You can see more of her beautiful work after the jump.

Favorite Color Combo

I’ve mentioned before that I love turquoise, aqua, or even baby blue paired with red.  I think Jayson Home & Garden would be a great place to find items in my favorite colors:

More of my picks after the jump.

Erin Ruth Wrap

I love when I find something that just makes my heart sing.  Today, I found gorgeous gift wrap from Erin Ruth while browsing Etsy.  A few minutes later, I saw this post on the fantastic Design for Mankind blog.  Weird.  Anyway, this is some very pretty paper:

Erin Ruth-Jacqueline Gift Wrap

How much do I heart that green Felicity Gift Wrap?  Too, too much!  More of my favorite Erin Ruth picks are after the jump.
