love at first sight: post

Mailboxes.  They give your guests a first impression of your home and often provide a source of  excitement, as we open them to find invitations to upcoming events, sweet notes and kind cards, and monthly installments of our favorite magazines.  

We love these mailboxes...

Clean and classic...

Understated...

Contemporary...


We fell hard for this farmhouse find.


We'd love to see it personalized with a house number or a family name.
No where to mount it?  Think about putting it inside your door for stashing incoming or outgoing mail, grocery and to do lists, etc.  I could also see it in a nursery, housing announcements, cards and pictures.     
If you're interested, we are asking $12.

before and...: sofa table

Gigi and my Aunt Barbara Kay found this fabulous table as they were cleaning out an old farm house. 
We love it's bones, but it needs a new coat of paint.  
I can just see it with a pair of garden stools or x benches beneath.    
We are selling this piece and we will paint it a color of the buyer's choice.  

Need inspiration?  Look at the colors of these pieces...  

Love the slate gray...

Or this blue... 

A creamy white... 

A cool green... 

We can't wait to share the after.  E-mail us at single.splash.of.lime@gmail.com with your offers.

weekend find: vanity stool...a giveaway

We are starting off this week with a freebie for one lucky reader. 

Gigi and I fall hard for girly, pretty things.  In no time at all, we completely romanticized this petite vanity stool and the idea that every girl needs a space for getting ready that is all her own.  

We loved the curves on this piece and though the fabric is in great shape, it could easily be updated... 


If you want to enter the giveaway, comment below and tell us your vanity style.  Are you....

glamorous...

sleek and modern...

understated...

 ...or vintage and chic...

love at first sight: southern draw update


Several weeks ago, I shared my favorite pieces by local artist, Amber McClure and my desire for a barn wood sign reading, "Bless Your Heart."  

I am so thrilled to share Amber's rendering of my latest request.  

A huge THANK YOU to Amber and please, check out her latest collection on her Facebook page.  You'll quickly fall in love!  

We look forward to meeting you all back here tomorrow for the Tag Sale!

before and after: book table update

Gigi has been pouring her heart and soul into filling a request for a unique coffee table.  Remember this post...

Gigi did some research and found a second version of the utility spool book table.  We loved the white washed look and the casters.

So Gigi took this...


And turned it into this...
It's gorgeous and truly one of a kind.  K, let us know if you want the casters added.  I think you already know where it's going to go and we cannot wait to get it to you this weekend!

currently coveting: ginger jar lamp

A reader recently expressed that she'd love to have a blue and white porcelain ginger jar style lamp.  

There's generally a smattering of these lamps in antique stores and interior design shops with prices upwards of $150.  

This one from Wisteria is $299.

We snatched up this one.  It's not as large as the lamps pictured above (it's 13.5 inches tall and 5.5 inches wide), but we couldn't not buy it.  It'd be lovely on a desk.
 
S, we hope you love it and we can't wait to see where you put it!
Our search for bigger, bulkier ginger jar lamps continues...

weekend find: breakfast in bed

For months now, I've been hearing my sweet, sweet friend, JG rave about downtown Mebane.  Now, here's the scoop, JG loves a unique find, but more importantly she loves a good bargain.  I trust her judgement and have been trying to make it to Mebane for several weeks now.  When another sweet friend, KG, suggested we go this weekend, I responded with a resounding "Yes, please!"

In our final stop of the day, I found this breakfast tray perched atop a bed.  I especially loved it's size.  Upon further inspection, we realized that the glass tray with handles could easily be removed, making it more functional for those of you with significant others who might actually eat breakfast in bed.
This piece is for sale!  We are asking $35 or best offer.  It would be amazing in a guest room, resting atop a bed.  E-mail us at single.splash.of.lime@gmail.com with inquiries and offers.     

And if I whetted your appetite and you want to plan your own road trip to charming downtown Mebane, here are the need to know details:

Go on a Saturday!  Most of the shops are closed on Sunday. 

Pack a lunch (or if you're coming from Raleigh, time it right so that you get to stop by Sutton's in Chapel Hill on your way back through).

Melville's Trading Post is my favorite and had by far the best bargains, but you'll also need to drop by Quirk's and The Curious Peddler.
