New Loot Monday and contest!

First items for your viewing pleasure: MORE CHINA

We’re obsessed with china. We talk about it, dream about it, eat off it. And to top it off, we’re not done adding pieces to our loot. Obsessed. Are you looking to offload your china? Give us a shot. We’ll make sure it is in good company.

After sorting the china, we task ourselves to mismatch the pieces into little displays of art. The fun part. These are some samples of how we like to match our endless supply of china.

Finding the perfect match…sometimes after hours of scrutiny is so rewarding. I giggle just imagining what we look like to people walking past our studio. Two women, crouched over in still, deep thought over a set of dishes stacked one on top of the other like they are trying to will the dishes to wash themselves.

Now, on to our next item for your viewing pleasure. Feast your eyes on this beauty:

9:30 p.m. Found on Immediately contacted the seller to express our love.

10 p.m. Seller returns message.

10:01 p.m. Price agreed.

10:02 p.m. Seller offers to deliver it that night. Awesome!

10:04 p.m. In car cruising around for an ATM. Find an unlit sketchy machine, yet successfully receive the cash without incident.

10:15 p.m. Heart rate finally decreases from the risky cash pursuit.

11 p.m. Couch is in my living room.

5:30 a.m. (next morning) A very confused husband wakes up for his early shift to find a strange large and lovely object sitting flat in the middle of his house.

Now, on to the contest! We need you, our loyal readers to….


That’s right! Send us an email with the perfect name for our new item of love. When you write us, please include the reason why you chose that name. After considering all the entries, Anna and I will select the one that we think best encompasses the personality and loveliness of the piece. That lucky reader will not only receive the pride of naming a piece of our inventory (the first name given to any of our pieces), but will be mentioned in our next blog post, and will receive a beautiful cup and saucer set.

Send in your entry today! Deadline: Sunday, March 27 at 10 p. m. CST. Please email your entries to

Until next time, we’re excited to see what you come up with….and we’ll share some more of our new finds!

Have a great week!

Lootfully yours,

Rhoda and Anna

    Fun and exciting night! A name for the couch might be “Gone with the Wind” as it reminds me of the era of the movie…………years ago when I first saw the movie. A beautiful couch.

  3. Fay Marie king says:

    Maybe, I should………or you could call the couch……Miss Scarlett O’Hara…..!! a better name than I suggested before…”Gone with the Wind”.

    I think “LaBella” or “LaBelle” which means the beautiful woman or the beauty because obviously she is an elegant, graceful and timeless beauty! And because you 2 beauties have the same qualities, it seems so fitting that your first named “baby” of your business should reflect that.
