Mantel Swooning

Well, we made it to St. LouiE (no, that's not a typo, I meant to do that!)

As the day progressed, it got HOTTER! Wow!
It's gotta be about 100 degrees down here. And it's really only 7 hours away.
Amazing what people have to live with. I love the NORTH... yes, even the snow!

But, what I really, really love is my sister and brother-in-law's home. My bro-in-law does all the decorating. He is really into it and I love shopping with him. In fact, I'd love to just shop throughout their home and pick up a few goodies to take back with me. hehe! 

But, of course, I won't! (Just basically cause they'd find it when they came to my house!) :/

Just kidding of course, or am I?

All of these vintage finds have been collected throughout the years by my brother-in-law at estate sales or auctions. He has a rule, ya only bring $20 and that's all he allows himself to spend.
I think through the years he's found some great things at a decent price!

Their fireplace is a see-through fireplace, from there great room into the kitchen area. C'mon check it out with me. I took loads of pics... 'cause there's loads to see!

Lots of GREAT VINTAGE eye candy!!

Keep checking back, there's loads more to come this weekend! This house is full of character!

Enjoy your evening!

I'm linking up to the FANTASTIC FRIDAY GALS! and Miss Rhoda at Southern Hospitality.
