vintage treasures & home tour news





January and February have been filled with lots of projects. We’re headed towards the finish line with our living room remodel, and I can’t wait to show you some cute details, but as of right now, it’s just a dust-filled mess!  

With packing up and storing my precious tableware and accessories, I’ve had to sacrifice a lot of shelf space so as I mentioned before, I’m having a little bit of what I call a “Vintage Flea Market Sale”. 

And best of all, it’s online and on ebay, which is one of the easiest sites to use! It’s bittersweet, but most of the treasures that I’m letting go of have been featured on my blog and in several magazines.

For example, those gorgeous vintage blue dessert cups seen in the spring tablescape above. There are several sets of colored glassware available, and I'll be listing more soon! 




A limited number of vintage china sets are also available. Some of my favorite rose embellished plates are listed. 




Like this pretty salad dish. 💗

It’s available with another one of my favorite and dramatic plates. 




Blue and white plates are my faves, but I have so many that I must let go of a few. 




I’ve even created unique sets of plates that are curated and ready to display in your home on a wall or to use in a tablescape. Here’s an example of one of my faves. 

I’ve already sold almost all the red and white transferware sets, but I plan to add a few more soon. 




There are also a few fun napkin rings on the blog shop. 
How cute are these faux succulent ones?  

These red ones are my absolute faves! 

I even used them recently in my Secondhand Tablescape for Valentine's day.  💗




The latest issue of Country Sampler Farmhouse Style features this DIY burlap table runner that I stenciled for Easter. Check out that adorable little bunny pitcher with the Annabelle hydrangeas... it’s available! 




Here are two of my projects from that issue, top left and bottom right. 




The Newport Harbor Home Tour is on the horizon, so that means lots of planning from the awesome committee. I’m not exaggerating when I say this will be one of the best home tours yet! I’ve seen a few of the homes and here’s a peek at one... 

This cute patio and the amazing house designed by Ashley Clark  will be one of the seven homes featured on  May 14th. For ticket info, visit Newport Harbor Home Tour.




This is one of my favorite homes from last year’s home tour. 

Check out all of its fabulous details HERE in this blog post.

a secondhand table for valentine's day


a tour of thrifted tablescapes     





Today’s the day of our fun Valentine’s Day table blog hop! Thanks so much for stopping by. I’m so excited to share my “Secondhand Table” with all of you. 

Best of all, I have four friends who have also styled lovely tables by using only thrifted and heirloom items. 
  



If you're already coming from Cherry Street Blossoms, you’ve already begun our Secondhand Blog Hop, so “Welcome” to Ciao Newport Beach!
  



The inspiration for my table, besides being budget-friendly was that I wanted to go with lots of fun red and pink accents.  




The starting point for setting this this table where these pretty pink Majolica plates by Bordallo Pinheiro. I found a set of these last week at one of my favorite thrift stores, and they’re the perfect shade of pink for Valentine’s Day! 




They also have a pretty embossed hydrangea design on them that I just love! I have a few extras for sale right now on my online vintage flea market collection on ebay. I just don’t have enough storage for a whole set of 12 of these, so I’m parting with a few. 




No vase needed here. The informal garland at the center of the table is started with a foundation of eucalyptus sprays. Just before dining, cut the blooms off your selected flowers and scatter over the leaves. The look you get is reminiscent of a flower crown. 

I love the pop of red of these beaded napkin rings. I’ve been a bit obsessed lately with finding simple but interesting napkin rings. These could cross over to a coastal inspired table too! 




Certain elements bring a table to life and at this table pretty plates, colorful napkin rings and vintage glassware add a pop of traditional Valentine’s Day colors. 




Adding little votives to the center of the table adds that necessary element of candlelight that just brings the table to life, and a little swag of ribbon makes everyone feel special! 


The next stop on our blog hop is 💘Annie from Most Lovely Things.💘 

I just know that she’s set a gorgeous table! Tell her "Hello" from me... 

Look for this graphic this weekend 

as well as the hashtag #thesecondhandtable on instagram. 😀
