It's My Year!

So last week when I answered some questions after being tagged by Marie at Marie a la Mode and I mentioned that I loved cameos? Well, I wasn’t messing around. Here’s the collection that I’m developing.









And here’s where I hunt for them. I’ve written before about this amazing auction house/vintage and antique store that’s about an hour from me and you can see why. Seriously, this place has it all – art, jewelry, clothes, objets d’art, books, etc., etc. You name it, they’ve got it. And best of all, you can barter on everything and get a ton of deals.



















In other news, 2011 just keeps getting better for me! I found out yesterday that I won a giveaway from Chloe over at Flower Pony - BTW, it’s an awesome and cute blog so check it out! Seriously, I think I can safely christen 2011 The Year of Courtney (I imagine I’ll be eating my words sometime in the next few weeks but for right now everything’s going my way).

In other fabulous giveaway news, if you've ever wanted a subscription to Elle magazine, today is your lucky day! A la Mode et Plus is offering just such a thing as a giveaway prize - here's the link!

I love stores like these with the beautiful chaos of one of a kind pieces strewn about. Wish there were more stores like it.
