I’ve really been enjoying decorating with my plants lately. I had to bring my small plants inside during the hurricane, and it inspired me to do a little rearranging. It’s a cheap and easy way to freshen up your space and bring life and color to a room.

We’re looking forward to the next few months. Halloween is almost here, and then right after that, our annual county fair will be in town. We’ve had a slight change in the weather and it’s feeling a little like fall around here, which is nice. We’ve also got Renninger’s Extravaganza coming up in a couple weeks, and it has been about 8 months since the last one, so we’re ready. I’m hoping to be able to find some fun new things for my shop for the holidays. I hope everyone is having a great October, and happy Friday!

Just some random photos I’ve taken over the past few months around the house. Kelly found the George Nelson credenza last year for $40 (in the second photo), and it’s one of my favorite pieces. I’ll take more photos and share them later. It fits perfectly between our shelves, and it makes a nice wall unit. I also found a Beni Ourain rug for $30, which I LOVE, and Lucy loves it too. Another little find was my Kilim pillow. I’m not usually into patterns, but this one is great and I really love the colors.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. Happy Friday!

I’m also excited and proud to announce that my shop was featured this week on Etsy as “Vintage Shops We Love“, under Editor’s Picks.

I hope everyone is  having a great week. We’re getting ready for Cadell to go back to school next Monday, so summer is winding down here. It’s always nice to take a break from the school schedule, but we’re ready to get back to having more structure. Along with Cadell going back to school, I’ll be starting a new diet, gym, and work schedule. I recently thrifted a newish Breville juicer for $3, so I’m going to start juicing. I’m currently looking for some good juice recipes, so feel free to share!

Sofa Makeover

Kelly and I have had this Ikea sofa for over 7 years now, and it has really held up nicely. The leather is perfectly worn, and it honestly has no issues or damage. We had discussed updating it with some more Danish style tapered legs, and Kelly finally got around to doing it. I really love how it looks!

I’m SO happy with the results! It’s amazing how a small change can make such a big difference. I love little improvements like this. Thanks, Kelly!
