Heather Bullard_mortar pestle spoons-101

I’ve been on the hunt for furniture and rugs for the new place but haven’t had much luck lately. I better get on it, or we’re going to move in without a bed, sofa, or dining table, among others. Of course, all is not lost, seems I’m always able to find a little something. I picked up this mortar and pestle while out “poppin tags” with my sister. I loved the pale color and cracks in the bowl. You just can’t beat patina.

It set me back a whole $2.99. I could have gotten it for half-off if I had a coupon.
Drats. There goes a buck fifty.

At an antique store, I found a set of 12, sterling soup spoons with a monogrammed “B”.
It’s not every day you come across a dozen with your initial. Had to have them.

It’s been a while since I’ve taken any photos with a real camera. I’ve been relying heavily on my iPhone. Maybe too much. It felt good to be behind the lens again, shooting my finds just for fun. Working with some pretty light and a few trusty props. And I remembered how much I loved it.

Have you picked up any great antique or thrift store scores lately?

Between posts you can find me on Instagram (heatherbullard) sharing the little things in life.


A Few of My Favorite Pinners


Oh, Pinterest. Before you, I used to tear out a thousand pages from magazines and file them away in heavy binders, not now…you’ve made life so much simpler.
And although I don’t pin thousands upon thousands of images, I am able to see my style more clearly defined through my curated boards and pins. Today, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite pinners. The ones I find myself re-pinning from again and again.

Above are pins from Ginny Branch Stelling, she has a keen eye for detail, and all things lovely. As a fellow stylist, some of my favorite boards are her Objects of Use & Props, and Tablescapes/Tabletop. I could easily create my Christmas and Birthday wish lists for eternity, directly from those boards. Swoon worthy.


Another favorite are the pins above from, Janna Lufkin, who also happens to be a stylist (I’m sensing a trend here). I love her Kitchen and Pantries board…it’s filled with inspiring kitchen images from grand to simple. And she shows her classic eye for clothing with her Great Clothes/Great Style board.


And a relatively, new to me, pinner is Lianna Boheme. Her boards have a romantic, feminine style to them that seem to transport you to a bygone era. My two favorites are her City | Mouse and Country | Mouse. For those of us who wouldn’t mind living in an apartment in the big city, and a small, quiet cottage by the lake.

Now, it’s your turn….Who are some of your favorite pinners?
