This weekend my family and I traveled to my hometown of Memphis so the cousins could hang out and we could all do some relaxing. There may have been some estate sale visiting as well. That's how I relax. Don't judge. One of our major excursions was taken on Saturday morning when we drove an hour out into the country to help pick out a puppy for my sister's family. Oh, how I love puppies! Who doesn't? If you don't, I don't want to know you.
Here's my niece Maren holding their pick. Isn't she adorable?!! Oh so sweet. They're still deciding on a name as they don't bring her home until this Saturday. So exciting!

And as I mentioned, I did manage to hit a few estate sales. While I didn't purchase anything at the first one, I was loving the mid-century modern style of this ranch home. I snapped a couple of photos of its details. First, the dining room chandelier was really cool . . . 
Then, the piece de resistance, these Greek key pulls (what is it with me and Greek key?) on the built-in cabinets in the master bedroom . . . 

 
The second home was an interesting Spanish-style home in the middle of the suburbs . . . very unusual. Apparently, the husband built this house for his Cuban-born wife to make her feel more at home. Love stories like that.
It was chocked full of art, tons of art. The first day I went was already the second day of the estate sale so everything was 30% off. Of course, I grabbed a portrait . . . 
But, I had my eye on another piece as well. So, I returned on the third day and got the piece below for 50% off. Score. 

Another great piece there that I passed on was a Sligh desk with a brass accents . . . 
Can you see the sides?
Once again, couldn't fit it in the car. Oh well. 

We made it back home late Monday and were greeted with some items my husband picked up from a local estate sale online auction that I won . . . 

A couple of x benches and some Thonet-style bentwood and caned dining chairs. I just couldn't pass these up. I haven't decided if I'm keeping or selling them, so watch out for further details. Yes, I may start selling furniture/accessories again either on my blog or at another venue, but I will definitely let you know!
