I love staycations!  I spent the last 3 days shopping, antiquing, junking, painting, crafting & gardening.  The exterior of our house is full on Christmas now while the inside is still celebrating Thanksgiving.  I also managed to find some Christmas gifts.  Geez, I’m exhausted come to think of it!  Now onto the treasures… I made it to several estate sales, an antique mall, junk shop, a flea market and an auction.  So here are the highlights.  I will spare you the shiny brites (there were many) and glass bottles (only a few). A coveted petite aqua fan… A pile of crusty, … Continue reading staycation

Hey there!  Did you happen to catch the episode of Kitchen Impossible on the DIY Network that my friends were on a couple of weeks ago?  If so, you may be wondering the sources for some of the amazingness that now resides in their kitchen.  See below for deets.

Comin’ atchya live from my home office today!  As a part time blogger and full time work from homer, I spend no less than 80% of my waking hours in this little yellow room so it is important that I get it just right.  Althought I still have a few projects on the horizon for this room it is close enough for a reveal so come on in.  Let me show you around. I’ve had this little table for years.  A past roommate left it behind.  I can’t tell you how many times I considered selling it.  I’m so glad I didn’t!  … Continue reading office tour


Hello Gorgeouses! I am here to tell you that I let yet another weekend come and go without sourcing any fab vintage finds.  I am not upset about it though because you see last weekend I was seaside and this past weekend lakeside.  Life couldn’t be better! Unless of course I were oh say lakeside surrounded by vintage perse…  Yes, that would make me happy to see all this vintage goodness in its original state.  Nothing says cabin like a stone hearth and knotty pine. And nothing says PA Poconos cabin like original mustard yellow kitchen countertops.  I love encountering these throw back … Continue reading lakeside

Hello friends!  Happy August.  The past couple of days were jam-packed with fun in the sun.  We played on the beach, went crabbing, rode bikes, visited my favorite winery and spent time with family and friends.  It was an excellent way to see July off.  Isn’t the summer going so quickly?  With all of those plans in just 48 hours, I almost didn’t have time to hunt for junk.  Almost.  I couldn’t let a Saturday morning go by without making the rounds.  And I’m glad I did.  On an abbreviated hunt, I found these 2 items that I couldn’t pass up. First we … Continue reading green with envy
