It's been awhile since I've been here, but I've been busy with end of summer activities and back to school stuff.
Life is now in a routine where I will hopefully be more regular here as well!
I've been working on several projects- a few furniture pieces, but also some decorating ones too.
I'm gearing up for the busy time of year with my business, so it's been a little nuts!
A couple weeks ago I drove to a sale in one of my favorite areas.
I was able to buy a beautiful empire dresser, which I hope to feature later this week, and this cute wrought iron table.
This wall has morphed so many times in our bedroom.
Initially, I wanted a really great sofa table to go here but it's been tough to find one that I liked.
I bought this with the intention of selling it, but as I cleaned it up, it just became clear that this would really be perfect for this spot.
It's narrow enough and tall enough, and I love the chipped white paint on the metal base.
It fits with our relaxed beach look in here.
I switched around a few pieces we had, and it feels great.
We still have mementos from our trips to Hawaii. Little jars of sand from the beaches of the places we've stayed.
I had the vintage aqua fan on our cabinet in our bedroom, but we recently bought a TV where this used to be, so it got moved.
I know....not a great look having a TV in the bedroom, but we got so tired - literally- of falling asleep every night on the couch and waking up to go to bed, that we decided we'd get a better night's sleep knowing we could finish whatever we were watching by going to bed earlier.
But it has helped!
I picked up this beautiful weathered basket yesterday at the Coburg Antique Fair near Eugene, Oregon. It was my first time there, and it was so much fun!
I went with a friend, and we brought home a few treasures.
I'll have to post some photos of all the other good stuff I brought home.
I saw a gorgeous World War II hospital table that I was drooling over and eyeing for my dining room....but I just couldn't pull the trigger on it.
I will probably regret that decision!
The addition of this table feels like a better fit in our bedroom.
Part 2 of today's post is a big thank you and some really exciting news for me!
A few months ago I was contacted by the editors of one of my favorite new magazines, and they asked if they could feature our front porch from last fall.
I was beyond excited, and it is such a dream come true to see our space in print!
This is a really beautiful issue (and I'm not just saying that because of the feature)!
Lots of gorgeous, cozy inspiration and I think you will recognize some other wonderful bloggers in this issue.
Thank you so much to the editors for reaching out to me!
If you'd like a copy, I've been able to find them at Fred Meyer and Barnes and Noble.
Have a great Monday!
