Market update!

Tuesday, July 21, 2015

Truth: I've been frantically searching for my SD card that held all of my photos from the Urban Farmgirl Market in June...and I just found it! The day started out pretty rainy but once the gates opened the day was quickly brightened by all of the amazing vintage loving shoppers who made this market pretty much unbelievable! I'm still making deliveries over a month later!










Thank you for another amazing year!

Small changes, Big impact

Thursday, February 12, 2015


Now rewind back to the my post-Christmas shabby, beige-y, creamy and white apartment.  While it was the perfect clean slate and I've loved it for many years, after setting these goals the first thing I was determined to do was start making small changes to my homestead, my oasis.  Keeping goal no. 1 in mind (saving) I started digging through my antique collection pulling a pieces out in my favorite color, emerald.

Next, a trip to Ikea.  A sure win for inexpensive modern *awesome* design.

And what can I paint?!  I have quite the check list!

BEFORE: DEATH BY BEIGE AND BROWNS.
First things first...as a renter I've come to terms with venetian blinds and popcorn ceilings as part of my apartment "decor" so please try to ignore them, like I do! 





AFTER: ONE COZY CORNER AT A TIME
Ok so I know it may seem subtle but to me, its huge.  Modern black, white and green in my very shabby white apartment and I'm in love!  The emerald is also very handsome I think!





Handsome emerald accents like the vintage aftershave bottle!

Bye bye yellow chair...the cream colored buffet is next!

Green Black and White


And now for the walls...that faux window has to go and I have an enormous list of gorgeous art I would like to purchase (not good for goal no. 1).



I've spent a lot of time researching artists and I'm in love with these three incredible talented women.  I think the pinks and peaches would look amazing with the emerald accents!

Abstract color


Needless to say I've been inspired and I can't wait to incorporate more beautiful bright color into my oasis.  I'll post more changes as they've been made! XOXO!







A little decorating

Friday, December 5, 2014

 It seems like everyone in Instagram land had their trees up weeks before Thanksgiving so I feel like I'm a little late to the game this year.  I pulled out my Christmas trees but didn't put the lights on just yet because I was a little excited to put together a "vision" I had earlier this year.  It involved a bunch of old thermoses ☺ Let me know what you think! 




My newest globe...I love the yellow.
Its a tin Replogle Globe designed by Gustav Brueckmann



More next week!
