Hey everyone!! First ever video post (whazzup!!).

Untitled from Holly Baker on Vimeo.

This insane French mirror immediately had me thinking "cote de texas!" It is HUGE and pictures really don't do it justice. I think it would be awesome to build a room around this, specially a contemporary white room!

If I had an empty corner this baby would have come home in heartbeat.

Lots of pretty linens...

Tons of cool things, like this mirrored old door to the old box car below it, caught our eyes.

What? You're shocked this feathered hair piece didn't come home with me??

That cabinet has my mind racing with ideas.

Rebecca, you foxy lady, you! Glad to see you are back on the blogging scene with such a hot new look.

I don't know how many more times I have to walk past this pair of victorian crystal sconces before my willpower gives out!! After a couple years of stalking them I may have to give in to the $300 price tags soon....

"I am too late for tea-time to take a photo"

These would be such a whimsical touch on a coffee table or side table!

I NEEDED THIS!!! But it was already sold...
Ok, I NEED THIS too!! a 8 foot harvest table converted to a coffee table. I just LOVE it!
Genius!!! Hanging old vent covers as art!
And of course, no treasure hunting excursion would be complete without a trip to HomeGoods... As soon as I walked in and saw these chairs I was smitten! If only I had room, and no kitchen chairs, and an actual, finished kitchen.
I forsee a REALLY fun project this summer once I gather some driftwood at the cabin!!

Can you believe that all I came home with was that frame and a blue crown jar??? I think I must be getting sick............
Well, I hope you enjoyed my first every attempt at video blogging! I promise I will try and improve on that front~
Toodles friends!

Home Goods gets me every time. I LOVE those chairs!

Making videos is SO hard, and you did great! I only share mine with very close family members because I always end up sounding so dumb :) Yours, however, was adorable. I hope you keep doing video posts! (Just some fyi on the technology front for when you're ready to make the switch - I have a "flip" camcorder and LOVE how easy it is to use!)

Melodie said...

I loved the video, it's always fun to see and hear bloggers as they are :) I puffy heart that harvest table.

Jen said...

You must buy those sconces! They are fabulous and would look incredible in your home. Can't you talk them down? I have 3 pieces of furniture you would love and would love to know what I should do with them? Wish you lived in Utah and could take them or give some advice. Can I send photos? Will you look and advise?

Amber said...

omg the video was TOO cute! More please! I want a Holly Show!! But please lets hang out and try on funky hats, LOVE them ALL!! My favorite part of antiquing!

COCOCOZY said...

My first time on your blog.

The video is great. Congrats on even figuring that out...you are much more tech savvy than many of us (uh me). Also, love the grates on the wall, the mirrored door, the sconce and much more! Thank you for sharing...we should exchange links!

Pretty Little Things for Home & Life said...

If you ladies hit the Antique mall on a Saturday or Sunday, let me know!! I'd love to join you!

However, I now know why I have a hrad time finding stuff... the two of you are heading out during the week! :)

Razmataz said...

That looks like a wonderful day, out with a friend nose deep in junk. What fun!

Brianna! said...

ya know, I've recently come to the realization that 99.9% of the time that I go Antiquing & Thrifting, I come home feeling so heartbroken due to the simple fact that I still live with my parents, which means I have no place to put all of the things that I see beautiful potential in. It's so terribly heartbreaking.

Tammy@InStitches said...

Looks like a fun day ! Great job with the video, you are tech savvy !

Bryn said...

oh holly you are so cute!

Beth said...

Loved the Video. And don't be coy-you know you look fetching in those hats.

Cheers

Loved the video--super cute! Random question---did you use a curling iron to make your hair wavy?

Living It At Home said...

Loved your video! Very cute and fun to watch. It is great when bloggers put them selves out there! Great finds. Love the chairs from Home Goods. I may have to run out now and find them!

Jenski, PhD said...

Maybe there was tooooo much great stuff that it was overwhelming, hence only the frame and jar? I love how you post ideas about things you see even if you don't buy them!

bagfashionista said...

lol -- so good to put a real voice to you! You guys are hilarious! ;)

Melissa said...

I LOVE the video blog! You guys are too funny...and the "hat fashion show" is something my sister and I would definitely do...and actually have in fact! Oh, and I really LOVE those chairs from Home Goods.

Deb said...

i'm loving the bowling pins!

Londen @ Sixty-Fifth Avenue said...

Looks like a lot of fun! I love the sconces, they are so fabulous! I would offer less for them, its worth a try.

Holly @ posypocket.blogspot said...

i saw go for it with those sconces! so beautiful!

Laura and Trevor said...

It's fun to see and hear bloggers as they are. I had no idea you were so goofy! Love it!

I am lovin' those sconces, too! They would be a perfect regal touch to a plain wall.

bargainblondie said...

Rebecca said...

Had a blast yesterday Holly!!! The video turned out great!!! Glad I didn't need a tetanus shot for my thumb lol!! I think we should have a tea party soon with some fun hats...but we just know now that we cant shop in that collection from the lady with the mini head lol!

Olivea said...

Loved this video and post! I loved getting to see more of your personality.

Debe said...

Read you all the time but haven't said HI until now. Great video, what you need to get is a FLIP camera...shots videos and then plugs right into your computer, easy peazy and fits into your purse! Got mine for Christmas and love it. Love those scones...need some!

Angie said...

Loved the video!! Just to cute!

Krystie said...

You're too funny! I love that harvest table!

Amanda said...

jealous!

1. that you two are so darn lovely and bff's yet live sooooo far away from me.

2. that you found such uh-mazing things on your excursion.

3. that you're both so pretty. did i already say that? :)

glad to see that the busy bee Rebecca will be posting again soon... counting on that new year's promise lady. :)

Janis said...

You saw some lovely things, I want that coffee table!!! Gotta love the HomeSense/Goods...........the hubs bought me a slightly different version of those chairs (mine have arms)this Christmas 'cause I couldn't stop drooling over them.

m said...

hey holly...i frequent your blog but rarely comment...however the video totally cracked me up. good for you for braving it! looks like you had a great day. i, like most of the other commenters (hey, did i just make up a word??) think you should go and buy those sconces. gorgeous! and i have also been sniffing around those chairs at homesense...they would look silly in my house, but i check them out anyway! they are so very 2010! cheers to you & rebecca. love your blog

caylee said...

HomeGoods is my drug of choice. I have to go at least once a month to get my "fix." My husband hates to go with me b/c I have to look at EVERY aisle to make sure I don't miss anything. By the way, I love your blog, and check it almost daily. I wish I lived in Canada so that I could buy some of your stuff. I haven't found anything like it here in Tennessee.

Cara @ Twice Lovely said...

So fun to come along with you on your shopping trip via bloggy land!

suburban housewife said...

you've never texted before??? stop it!!!

Joi said...

I love your blog and I am so excited you shared a video post! Getting to see your personality makes me like you even more! : )

Holly and Sean said...

Awww thanks everyone! I am so glad you tolerated my first attempt~ "You like me! You really like me!" LOL

Tracey, I just use a 1.5 inch barrel iron on medium heat to get loose waves~ Really fast (and easy!).

I think we need to host a local shopping trip with all my Alberta gals in the very near future!!! Let me know if you want to participate and we will try and organize something for the beginning of Summer!

Rhianna said...

You never sent a text message? Wow!

Suzy said...

Such a cute video. I was just going to comment on what tools you used to curl your hair, but I see Ive been beaten to it!

angela | the painted house said...

You are so cute--even making a the wild-black-bird-exploding-in-air-and-landed-on-my-head look so chic! Ha! :) I love an afternoon with a friend antiquing. Hilarity usually ensues, huh? :)

naomemandeflores said...

Great post! Love the video!

Little Dolly said...

Hi! I love your blog, they are very enjoyable to read. However, I would love to know what you are saying in your video? You see, I am Deaf. So you don't mind typing in what you said in your video?

One of your fans,
Little Dolly

Hopeless Chest said...

Never text-messaged? Insanity. You do a great job with the blog, considering you think you're not tech savvy.

Holly and Sean said...

Great idea Dolly!!! I will try and sub-text it next time if I can find a way~

Tamstyles said...
