Curious Collecting

I'm sure many of you have heard of 'Curious Sofa', the amazing store run by talented Debbie Dusenberry.  I've saved so many magazine articles featuring her famous store and vintage-style home.  She is truly a master at styling and collecting unique vintage finds.
Although the Curious Sofa brick-and-mortar store was closed a while ago, Ms. Dusenberry has maintained an online store of the same name.  I love browsing there from time to time, and finally made my first purchase!
Feast your eyes on these neat old salvaged balusters I ordered ...(the two framing the cabinet door):   


I got 4 balusters in all.  The other two are leaning against a window on this nearby console table:





I'm not sure where they'll be permanently displayed, perhaps all 4 together.  They do add character, as do these vintage linens from Curious Sofa.  They have beautiful detailed edging...



I think these will look nice in some fall displays around here.  Here they're prettily piled on my chair:

As we start to turn the corner toward fall, I start turning toward baking.  I'm looking forward to the upcoming apple season and the scents of cinnamon with apple.  For now, I baked a quick bread for a summer breakfast:


Wish you could all join me here for tea...

Sharing with White Wednesday.  Have a great week!
