If you live in Northern Virginia and love antiquing chances are you've been to Lucketts and visited The Design House. The Design House is chock full of treasures and only open one weekend a month.  They change the paint colors and rooms every month and I am always excited to see what new finds they have in store.  My hubby was right on thinking that it would be a perfect place to stop on Mother's Day!
 Coral is the color for the month!
There are goodies hidden in every corner, inside and out!
 How fun is this vintage chalkboard?
 Driftwood sunburst mirror...YES! DIY? Maybe?
 Lamps, artwork, furniture, old barn door, massive shell bowl..they have it all! 
 The Union Jack pouf is Tate approved! He's hoping it will go in his room!
 It pained me to pass on this chrome saw horse desk! I love love love this desk!
Sadie & Stella while visiting Powell Brower Home, just recently affirmed my addiction to pretty trays-not only is it a timeless accessory but it keeps things neat and organized..Yes, that's why I had to have it!
 The rest of these finds are from the The Old Lucketts's House next door, always open!
 Another tiny nook in this old 3 story house filled with great finds, I like the curves on that brass lamp!
 Campaign meets bamboo! 
Could you imagine this painted kelly green, or high gloss black or white or any color for that matter...
 I'm kicking myself on this one! Pair of thinking man bookends-they'd look handsome on any bookcase!
 This would make a funky island or even a work table...
 Now, I just find him funny!
 These guys would be handsome guard dogs! Did you see Bijou & Boheme's dogs in front of her door?! They look amazing!
 Just look at this face! How sweet is he? My hubby bought this cute face while I wasn't looking! 
Outside dog or inside?

I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!  Thanks to my hubby and Tate for breakfast in bed and a relaxing day filled with antique treasures, a few of my favorite things and all the love a girl could ask for and more!
