Sweet Peas and the bushes and driveway at our "real" house...

Good afternoon friends. I hope that you're having a nice Sunday!

Yesterday I mentioned that my husband and I just discovered a nearby antiques store that is only minutes from our house. I have no idea why we had never seen it before, other than the fact that it is off of a street that we do not drive on very much. In any case, we are thrilled to have made the discovery. The store is Sweet Peas Antiques & Garden located on Holden Road in Youngsville, NC. It is owned by a gracious lady named Linda who is so friendly and eager to help you find just what you want. (This is where we purchased the white chair with burlap seat cover and little green table that I showed you yesterday.)

Here are some pictures of the shop.

Welcome to Sweet Peas Antiques & Garden!


Things look good even before you enter the shop...



There's Linda chatting on the phone.
Beautiful finds at every turn...


Look up...


...look down...


...look across...


Don't forget to look in the corners...


...and everywhere else...


...look at each bureau...


...and the tables and chairs...


...and vintage clothing...


...and hutches...


...and table settings...


...and wall hangings...


What do you think we bought?
Well, actually, we put it on layaway because
it's too big to store in our garage until we get
some of the other stuff up to Birdsong.
That was a hint!
It is in one of the above photos.

Well, yesterday was a great day. Today, not so much. With all the work that we've been doing at Birdsong, we've neglected a few things around this humble abode (a/k/a our "real" house), so decided to make today a work day.

I trimmed these (62 of them to be exact)...


...and Mr. Perch used his new toy to
power wash the walkway and driveway...


Oh well, I guess every day can't be fun! Ha! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great evening.

  1. What a find...I was drooling over every photo! Hmmm...the hutch? The dining room table? The bureau?!? Do tell!! And it sounds like you both had a very busy Sunday...my mister and I went to an antique place about 40 minutes from here...I bought a shelf and he bought a 45 record! But there were some really nice things...just nowhere to put them!

    1. There's always somewhere to put them. Even if you have to move or get rid of something else. Which is exactly what we are going to do with that piece that we put on layaway! XO

  2. hee hee...yes, purging and making room....I was looking at a chair and he said "no furniture until we get rid of the load of furniture we already have!!!" -- I think that was "permission" to purge, don't you??? :)
