Summer Fun // Part 1


Processed with VSCOcam with g3 preset










We are less than a month into our summer break, and we’re having a blast! On the last day of school, I took Cadell to the skate park and they were having tryouts for a local skate team. He wanted to give it a shot, so he competed for a spot and made it! It was a great way to kick off the summer.

Aside from working, we’ve been thrifting, going to the beach, and getting together with friends for skate sessions and BBQs. I love this time with my little family!

Around The House





I just love the light coming into our home this time of year. Kelly found the hairpin stand at a thrift store a few months back, and he added a wood top for me. It was probably an old stand for a fish tank, but it works for us.

I’m excited about spring, and have started to give my plants more attention. I’ve also continued to collect vintage pottery, and I try to sell most of what I find, but these are a few that made the cut (for now). The hoop chair has been sitting in the garage for close to a year (or more). It needs some love, but I brought it inside just to play around and see how it looks in our space. I love it! I actually talked Kelly into keeping it, and he’s going to refinish it for me when he gets around to it. I rescued that little citrus tree from our yard when we first moved here. It was just a little stick with a few leaves. I love how it’s coming along.

I’m blown away that it’s almost May! Summer, here we come…

I have lots of great items in my shop at the moment, and I’ll be adding more this week. I can’t believe it’s the last day of March! I had to sneak a post in since I haven’t posted at all this month. Shame on me! I’ve just been busy with the little one, working, and trying to gather more items for my shop. Our spring break just ended, so we’re back to our regular schedule. I’m counting the days til summer!

I’m going to make it a point to post more often again, so I’ll be back with some more updates. Have a great day, everyone!

Renninger’s Extravaganza!











We spent Friday over in Mount Dora at Renninger’s Extravaganza. They’re only held three times a year, and the last one was in February, so we were really excited to go. There’s always something new and we walk away with something great after every trip. Kelly picked up a really nice Eames style lounge chair (1st photo), so he was happy. I found four great items for my shop, so I’ll be adding them this week. There were so many things that I found at a reasonable price, but I was on a budget. The next one is in January, so I’ll be more prepared next time.

I’ll be back later this week with some shop updates. I have LOTS of great items in my shop, just in time for the holidays!
