You Light Up My Life ~ Bookshelf Lights

We’re still all aglow from our recent Engagement – no date set just yet, but we’re getting there with the wedding planning.  So much to think about! In the meantime, this fabulous update occurred (actually back in February, but who’s counting?) For Valentine’s Day, we actually celebrated at Ikea of all places.  Our local store… Continue reading You Light Up My Life ~ Bookshelf Lights

Better Late Than Never – Christmas Decor

Obviously, things haven’t been terribly busy here on the blog lately.  That isn’t to say that life itself hasn’t been busy.  Infact that’s wholly opposite from the truth!  But we did find some time to deck the halls… Our tree this year took on a woodsy-mercury-glass theme.  You’ll recognize the smaller glass balls with the… Continue reading Better Late Than Never – Christmas Decor

Adding Pantry to the Closet

So we shared last week about how I spiffed up the hall closet to make it my own. Well, I forgot to share the right side of the closet, where yes, we still keep our pantry goods. Down there on the bottom we have a handy stool to make it easier to quickly get to… Continue reading Adding Pantry to the Closet

Ironing Board Cover turned Pillow

Once upon a time there was an ironing board cover that dreamed of being something more… something not so flat. Then one day it was taken off the shelf at its long, lonely home of Tuesday Morning and was taken to a new home (at a mere $4 clearance price!).  There at it’s new home,… Continue reading Ironing Board Cover turned Pillow

Hey girl. July 2013 in Review

Where did July go?!?  Time flies when you’re moving and job-searching!  But there was still enough time to get a few projects in. Obviously the main theme of the month was MOVING which was a much bigger endeavor than I anticipated, taking a lot of time and limiting the fun things we shared.  But there… Continue reading Hey girl.

Double Three Dollar Deals

This weekend was spent going through the rigmarole to officially become a resident of Pennsylvania.  It was a more complicated process than it really needs to be, and there were a few moments of identity crisis.  I’ve been a proud (SOUTH!) Jersey girl my whole life…. and now Pennsylvania is next to my name in… Continue reading Double Three Dollar Deals

Decor Shopping in Poole

After our adventure to Christchurch, we decided to keep local and walk about Poole, our adopted city for the trip.  By this point, my friend Erin was with us, and really she’s one of the best shopping buddies around, so what better time to find the downtown shops? And of all the shops we went… Continue reading Decor Shopping in Poole

World [Market] Exploring

This past weekend was a rare one for me.  I didn’t have to be driving anywhere!  Instead of heading to Pittsburgh and Bill, or back to Philly to see my parents and childhood dear friends, or even just driving into the office for catch up work, I had no obligations of driving.  Needless to say,… Continue reading World [Market] Exploring

Springing for Stripes!

ReStore & Anthro Look the Same

Ok, I’ll cop to it, these photos are from two seperate shopping trips.  But honestly, there are times where the only difference between Anthropologie and our local ReStore is the price and how much dust you’ll have to wipe off your purchase before using it. But really, I’m in love with Anthro’s china.  All of… Continue reading ReStore & Anthro Look the Same

Sail Away With Me ~ Inexpensive Art

As I frequently mention, much of my life is spent in my car as it seems all of the important people in my life are spread out from DC up to New England and of course west to Pittsburgh.  So when a friend of mine found herself taking a temporary gig over the summer in… Continue reading Sail Away With Me ~ Inexpensive Art

Weekend Score! ~ Crystal Candlesticks

I needed a quick little piece of glassware to replace a nice yankee candle I broke, so a quick trip to Goodwill was in order.  And of COURSE I left with way more than a single glass candle holder. Well I came home with two extras I hadn’t planned on. These beauties may look familiar…… Continue reading Weekend Score! ~ Crystal Candlesticks
