Scenes from my weekend…

Hi All,

Hope you had a good weekend? We were able to get lots done. Here is a little peek into my weekend.

Shared my accessory with my living room sofa:

Since we are having a photo shoot for a home tour in March I decided to hit some thrift stores to see if I could find any must have accessories for styling. Sadly I didn’t come home with anything, but I did find some fun items that I wanted to walk home with.

Cool vintage hardware:

Intense but amazing vintage furniture with brass bases:

Loved this hunter green and gold accent table. Good idea that you could recreate on your own table:

Hudson also had some fun when he found a massive table full of bells!

I always check out the luggage section of thrift stores, because I love the look of some vintage cases and I hit the jack pot at this store:

{ I didn’t “need” them so I left them behind and I’m still thinking about them. Wonder if they are still there? }

After all of that thrifting I ended up at HomeGoods, but again left empty handed, because everything looked too much like Home Goods. Know what I mean? I just couldn’t pull the trigger on anything, but I did find some amazing ikat chairs that were calling my name.

We then ended up at Moe’s for dinner where Hudson enjoyed his meal a little too much and it ended up all over his face and hair.

And ended the night with a cozy fire:

Sunday was filled with work related projects.

Figured out framing for my new Lulie Wallace piece:

We also finally finished Hudson’s custom piece of art:

{It went through a bunch of layers to get to the final outcome. Hudson just turned 14 months and I’m so relived it’s finally finished and we all love it.}

We did manage to squeeze in a little fun and played with Hudson. How sweet is this lions and zebra tic tac toe game?

We wrapped up the day by working on a DIY project. Details coming soon. Hudson wanted in on the action and kept stealing my fabric and using it for napping under the bench we were changing.

Here is a peek at the final project:

Eventful weekend, right? Whew. I’m tired just recapping it. What were you up to?

  1. You certainly had a fun, busy week end. I was also searching for decorative items for the New York Design on a Dime event, the weather not cooperating, I ended up on ebay…

    oh my goodness, you were busy!!!! I absolutely LOVE the side tables with the brass base, gorgeous! I totally know what you mean re: homegoods (homesense here) I feel the same way about some pieces.

      Right? I love me some Home Goods and most times I find a million and ones I want, but this trip everything just looked like it was from there and not some unique find.

  3. Bethany says:

    I love those green suitcases, I would have had trouble walking away from those!

  4. I know what you mean about items calling your name. Recently I found a sweet Moderne night stand that I thought about for a week. I decided to go back, and told myself if it was still there it was mine. It was, and it now sits in my home happy and wonderful.

  5. I know what you mean about Home Goods, I’ve had that same thought too. Prevents me from pulling the trigger on many items there. Productive weekend for sure!

    I also purchased the Lulie Wallace prints. What frame style did you choose? I really love your style and I need help!! Thanks!!

    Looks like you had a packed weekend of goodness! Little Hudson is getting so big, what a cutie! Congrats on your Joss and Main sale. I just looked at it, you have some great offerings. I have your Bangkok elephant side table in a stand up shower.

    What a fun weekend! I absolutely love your pillows in the first photo! Can you tell me where the floral one on the left is from? I’ve been hunting for a floral pattern like that for our living room!

      Hi Kelly,

      It’s Misia from Manuel Canovas. It’s a bit pricey, but I’ve been in love with it for years that I finally pulled the trigger and got the fabric. It can only be ordered through the trade. If you are interested let me know and I can get you pricing/availablity.
