Monday Inspiration: Chartreuse & Co.

After a busy auction on Saturday, I decided to take a little road trip to Fredrick, Maryland to Chartreuse & Co.'s October Tag Sale for little extra design inspiration. I first discovered Chartreuse & Co. at Luckett's Spring Market.  Chartreuse & Co. is not your typical antique fact they are only open once a month -typically the third weekend-- for tag sales and yard sales. 

The weather was perfect and the fall foliage was beautiful!  While I got there late on the third day, there were still great finds and deals.  Here are a few of favorite my inspirational pieces...

Happy Monday!
