One of the biggest trends right now is Reusing, Re purposing and Recycling.
As it turns out, I grew up in a family that has a great appreciation for things with a history.
I have many interests, but I do believe that the "Search and Rescue" of cool and unique items, is probably my most favorite.
I especially love to mix these found objects with more modern and classic pieces. It is a sure way to keep your decor from "Going out of Style".
I think that you should never "re decorate" completely, but rather re arrange, add to and pass down for others enjoyment! After all, if the items we are seeking were never passed down ,we wouldn't have the opportunity to give them new life!

As I continue my journey as a designer,
I am happy to say that I have found a Niche and it's one that suits me just fine.
If you have been following me, you might know that I have partnered with my Mom and Aunt and some friends who are also into this treasure hunting lifestyle.
Between us we have 7 booths at Midtowne Antique Mall here in Little Rock.
105 N. Rodney Parham Road
We have all enjoyed it so much, that we each have a space dedicated to fit our personal styles.
My new booth Tusk will be located on the Front Perimeter Aisle.
I'll be getting all moved in the next couple of weeks,
so hopefully you can stop in and check it out.
It will be a mix of old and new!
I love Estate Sales, Antique stores and even PICKING through peoples homes and storage buildings looking for treasures that need some love.
To me, it's a therapeutic and a thrill at the same time! It is a great outlet for me to "shop" with out going over budget. Well, there is an occasional splurge, but sometimes that is necessary!

Here are a couple of shots from my space in the Arkansas Symphony Designer House that I completed a few weeks ago.
Many of the items were found on my frequent tag sale stops and Midtowne antique Mall.
Most will be FOR SALE in Tusk.
Message me if interested in any of these items

Heirloom Hardware and Home is another great shop in Midtowne-
My dear friend ,and original partner in Linger, Geralyn is the proprietor.
She also has a great site for people wanting to buy or sell online.
It's a great way to get exposure if you have some pieces that are ready for a new home-
And of course, so you can make room for more great finds in yours.
Like her pages on Facebook
Another friend of mine, Lori, who was also a part of Linger has a booth located next to HHH.
She has a real knack for Up~cycling and creating unique accessories and furniture.
She loves to use Chalk Paint and does Custom orders!!!!
Here are some of Harmony's latest Editions - stop by her space soon before they are gone!
Dwellingz- located on first aisle in Midtowne is always neatly stocked and ready for customers.
My friend, Julie- the Dwellingz Chick- is very talented on the sewing machine and furniture painting too
(something I would love to learn very soon)
She also does custom orders!
Here is one of her latest creations.
I'm secretly hoping she will gift me one of these pillows (life is better at the lake, indeed)
for giving her a little cross Marketing on my little blog! :)
Fellow Interior Designer, Krista Lewis, has been at Midtowne for a few years now.
Her booth ,Brass Tacks, is located just a few down from the new location of Tusk.
In addition, she recently opened a kids clothing and decor space.
It's located right past TUSK on the front Aisle.
You won't miss it!
Last, But Most Definitely NOT least is
Thanks much to these 2 ladies (my Mom and Aunt Jan) also Identical Twins, for passing on this wonderful past time of Treasure hunting to ME!!!!
They have been a search and rescue team for as long as I can remember.
They have been so kind as to let me in on the fun...So...
Look for many of their items to also be in Tusk, since we will occasionally shop as a Trio!
Hope you have enjoyed this little teaser and it has inspired you to get out and HUNT!
