Lumi9 First Fall Friday!!!!

September 12, 2011 § Leave a comment

Well as many of you know, at the store we always have a “First Friday” celebration on the first friday of the month where we welcome a new artist to the store with food, friends, fun and spirits. And sometimes a live band! This month we did a second friday of the month and we were blessed with a wonderful turnout!!! I am always excited to see new faces and thrilled at seeing the familiar ones who came through the door! The weather was great, everyone who showed up was great and the art was FANTASTIC!!! I know I’m finally doing something right as a shop owner when the things I hear are, “whoa! this artist is really good!” Followed by, “This beer is really cold!” Cheers to fall!!!

Lumi9 visualizing

Pieces start at only $67.00!!! Hours of the gallery are tuesday – friday 11-5 and Saturday 10-4.


(I don’t know if the caption is showing up for the photo above so I’m just going to write it! Here we have our pretty lady rocking a vintage purse she purchased from this ol’ thing.)
And it just wouldn’t be right if I didn’t mention my vintage clothes seller, This ol’ thing. She has the best vintage eye out there and from what I heard from all our new friends who stopped in from Arkansas with the Oxford American Mag, really good prices!!!

Here’s to cooler temperatures and football season!!!
hugs and high fives!!!

I have been keeping my eye on this trend and it’s finally here with full force. And that trend my friends is the color Orange!!! It’s everywhere! Even the buttons on my wordpress blog are highlighted in Orange! So what’s a southern belle to do who bleeds nothing but houndstooth and crimson?
Well accessorize or course!

A little homage to lcd soundsystem. So a lot of you ask me what does my house look like so I thought I’d post a few photos of the clean parts of my home 🙂

some plants in the front yard

I plant drought tolerant plants along with some not so drought tolerant plants in pots to add texture to my front yard

These are a few plants I have in my front yard. I live in a garden home. I know, gasp!!! but I really love it. It’s a great size, I dig the layout and my neighborhood is really small. You’ll know it’s my house by all the plants in pots out front. The soil here is crapola. It’s fill dirt and half the time its so wet because it doesn’t drain and everything rots. So to combat that I plant a lot of high drought tolerant plants in pots. The lady who owned the house before me put down the cement and it had pea gravel around it so I just put grass seed in the pea gravel to have grass there instead. The oversized cracked pot is just that. I saw it in someone’s yard for the garbage and stopped and picked it up because I thought it would look really cool with a plant growing out of it!

Sputnik light fixture that I salvaged

This is my light fixture at my front door that I salvaged from my dad’s scrap yard when I worked there. I saw it on a truck and because it is brass I knew the customer was going to turn it in across the street at the metals warehouse. I radioed my brother in law and told him to please, please! put the light fixture to the side for me. When he came across the street he was holding the light fixture that was broken in half and three of the arms were off and the others were just hanging there. He looked at me and said, “this is what you wanted?” I said “YES!” I scooped up the pieces and took it to lighting plus and they put the little guy back together for me, re-wired it and even treated some of the new parts to make them look like the old ones! And i think it may have cost me $60. total.

Dinning Area

So this is where I eat. I don’t have a formal dinning area and a kitchen table like you’d have in bigger homes so I wanted to make my area a little more on the formal side with the vintage chandelier but keep it a little casual with my big wood table that I got handed down to my from my dad. The chairs are ones that I got from an estate sale that still need to be reupholstered but I love the shiloutte of them and the wall paper, YES WALLPAPER! is some that I picked out. It’s of cherry blossoms and it has an iradescent silver throughout to make it sparkle and to bring it up to date.

Storage!

So this is storage in the kitchen. The buffet piece I found in a thrift store and fell in love with it!!! My older sister wasn’t too impressed but whatever! The tray on the right is a present from my sister. It is a marimekko tray that i just love. On top are vintage glasses. The ice bucket owl is vintage, the martini glasses are a gift from my friend cristalle. The art on the walls are two pieces that I got from the Kentuck festival. The planter peanut salt and pepper shakers are two items that I got when I was a freshman in college and I went home with my roommate to fort payne, where she is from. I just knew when I found a house they would look neat!

Well I hope you guys enjoyed these photos and I will post more as soon as I vacuum and dust!!! If you have any questions please post and I’ll be more than happy to answer!!!

Happy Decorating!!!

Short on storage?  Turn an every day ironing board into a jewelry holder!  Lori of this ol’ thing vintage did just that for junkers daughter.  “Sometimes the only way to go is vertical.” Lori said with a laugh.  Be sure to come check out all our new fall Vintage starting next Tuesday the 9th at 11a.m.
Also this month we will be re-launching a new website! Very exciting! Thanks for everyone’s patience for the store’s August reopening.
ROLL TIDE!
