More Decorating

This past Saturday, Hubbs and I took a few hours, left the farm, and headed to the quaint town of Lewisburg, PA (home of Bucknell University). Our destination: Rollermills Antique center...a wonderful and huge antique mall with over 400 dealers. Our mission: to find a few pieces that would help complete the decorating of our loft library and guest room. This place is spectacular! You can find just about anything vintage that your heart desires here. I could have spent a week and not have seen everything! Our trip was a success. We found this adorable twig planter to use in the loft library. I am striving for a sort of "Lewis and Clark" feel to the rooms in the loft.



For the guest bedroom, I found these old Woolrich hunter's pants and cap (straight off of Elmer Fudd) and a wonderful wool covered canteen. These items quickly found a home...completing the rugged outdoorsy feel of this room.

This old dresser was another item that I had found last year at a local auction....and bought it for a song. It has a piece of veneer missing on the bottom drawer...but that adds to the rustic feel.
My grandfather's oak desk that I have had since childhood (did all of my homework at this desk) sits on one wall with an antique inkwell and quill pen. The log cabin looks so much like our 200+ year old cabin on our property. This one is a night light and was a gift from my sweet sister-in-law.


The perfect book for the nightstand....
This room serves as a masculine alternative to the Victorian guest room on the first floor.

Nakia, thanks for your kind words! I actually do get that catalog....it is where I found my bedding for that "Northwoods" bedroom! Thanks for the suggestion, though!
