more Southern shop love...Time Worn Interiors



Yes, I am STILL talking about the shops I visited durning my trip to Nashville back in March. Hey, what can I say, I shop A LOT and some shops are so fabulous I have to tell you about them just in case you are in the area. It is my duty as a dedicated vintage shopper to keep my peeps informed about the ones that are sooooo worth the time to stop. 

Ok, today we are talking about Theresa's shop in Glendale, KY. (Theresa has the fabulous blog Time Worn Interiors, so do pay her a visit and tell her Hello!) It was right on my path home from Nashville, to Illinois so I knew I HAD to see it. It was a Sunday, so she was closed that day but was sweet enough to come over and open the shop for me. Isn't it just so cute?? I love the chippy painted brick an black double doors. This is how I would want my shop to look if I ever have one. 




I knew as soon as I peeked in the front window this was going to be a good one. You know how you get that little rush of excitement and then panic all at the same time when you just KNOW you are going to want to spend every last penny you have? Yep, I had that. 




But then I get inside and I panic because I love it all so much...and I get overwhelmed and don't know what to buy so I freeze and don't notice things I REALLY should have bought until I get home and look at the pictures and want to scream. Yep, I had that happen, too. 




Just look at this old hardware cabinet!!!! Could I possibly put enough exclamation points to express how much I love it? 

{sigh...}




And then there was this open beadboard cabinet. I was soooo close to getting this one. But, I knew it would not fit in the SUV we drove on this trip. (slap in the face reminder as to why you ALWAYS see me driving a truck. You just never know when you are going to need to haul something!) 

But I did get that big, beautiful mirror hanging next to it. Yay!




Theresa has this cute little room tucked in the back of the shop. She had my bed all made up and ready...how did she know I was going to want to move into her shop? Haha! I am totally kidding, but this is such a cozy little space...I would love to be her live-in shopkeep!




This cute little cabinet with chippy old paint was at the foot of that bed. Now this one I knew I could fit in that silly SUV we were driving so it came home with me. I looooove it! A perfect mix of chippy pale gray and white paint. 




This is a shutter from an old barn. Isn't it gorgeous?? You can just tell how grand that old barn must have been to have such a beautiful and HUGE shutter. 




The way she did the display inside of this big birdcage was genius!




And just because I am obsessed with old houses, I just had to show you this cute one that is right next door to Theresa's shop. Isn't it just so stinkin' cute?? The whole town of Glendale was cute! 




In your travels, if you are anywhere near Glendale, KY this town is soooo worth a visit. Give yourself some time, though. For a little town it has an AMAZING number of antique shops to see. We were in a hurry so only had time to stop at one other shop where Theresa had a booth. I wish I could have seen more, but I know I will be back soon! 

Do pop over and check out her blog. She just came back from doing the Marburger Farms show in Texas but will be doing more shows this year, so even if you can't make it to Kentucky, she may be bringing Kentucky to you!

  13. I love how you described your feeling of being overwhelmed when you walk in some place so amazing! I too just freeze up and tend to fixate on one thing instead of taking in the big picture. Wow, what an amazing store. Thanks for sharing!
