{ Sentimental Vintage Treasures from One of our Favorite Places.. }

Happy Friday everyone & welcome back to TQS!! Thanks sooo much for popping back in, as it's been pretty quiet around here & that's not like me...but you guys we took an 8 day road-trip to Florida to visit Mark's grandma { Mama } & Oh my goodness was it the best time!!! It was definitely good for my soul & just being down in the tropical weather with Spark & mama had me so relaxed! Little back story..so the last time we have seen mama was back in 2010.. almost 10 years ago..so this trip was for sure overdue. You see Mark lost is mom tragically when he was 12 years old, so Mama is the closest thing to his mom. We loved spending so much time with her, enjoying  her home & of course Florida in general. While we were visiting we were informed that she is selling her home & moving in with family { she's 92 }, & wanted to gift a few things we liked. It wasn't only good for us but for me in general. When we got back it seemed as though my body hit some kind of reset & seems like I'm in a "remission" of some sorts from my health issues which THRILLS me x10!! It has been super busy since  coming home, but in the BEST way possible! I have major updates on our previous plan to update this house & why..For now come see why these treasures we were gifted while in Florida are some of my absolute favorites!! 


One of the "treasures" we brought home from Mama's with us was this vintage train set. At first glance I didn't really know what it was but automatically fell in love with it. Mark  says its been in her china cabinet for as lone as he can remember & always loved the look of it...It's actually a four set shot glass set with the middle part as whiskey holders built in..Neat right? I loved it paired with our rustic corner cabinet goodies..


These black stem wine glasses were also something we brought back with us. I spotted them a long time ago & always had a thing for them. This time while down there I especially took an interest in them because as you know our style has evolved since 2008 in our condo..They fit in even more perfect with out rustic cottage greenhouse decor now & I will definitely use these as we host most holidays!!





The third & final item we brought home with us was this " The Gathering" sign! This is the most significant piece we brought back & we both shed some tears over it!! Since the first time I met Mama { 2008 } & stayed with her, one thing I remember decor wise was this sign on her lanai!!! It's the one thing Mark wanted to take away from another chapter closing ...Mama also disclosed that it was made my Mark's grandpa who has also passed on , so it's double special!!! You'll see this being used in another area very soon!



I hope you guys liked this space with all our new vintage sentimental treasures! If I get all my work done today #fingerscrossed haha, this space may be getting a change sooner than later!! What's your favorite special decor item to decorate with? Let me know down below in the comments!! 

Happy Friday!!!
