July 1st was my baby shower, and I wanted to share with you the pretty photos that were taken by the lovely Michele Beckwith
I absolutely loved how everything turned out and I definitely couldn’t have done it without my sister in law and besties!
My gorgeous besties!
My beautiful sister in law with her custom onesie for baby girl.
Seriously obsessed with the cake topper.
Just some of the amazing ladies that attended the shower.
My mommy and mommy in law
Presents for baby girl!
Oh and not shower related but I love this shot she got of the living room, makes me seriously want the entire house professionally photographed!
Hey peeps! Hope you all had a fab weekend.
Yesterday my bestie Melissa and I hit up the Alameda Point Antiques Faire
Love this place! This is my third time going and It’s so much fun, if you are interested it’s every first Sunday of the month. Bring lots of cash and wear comfortable shoes, because it’s exhausting but there are so many awesome finds.
I was on the lookout for a antique bar cart, brass bamboo tray, antlers, and any other yummy finds.
My bestie scored big! She found an awesome chandelier, vintage metal basket, a gorgeous trellis pillow and black antique chair.
I on the other hand am a bit picky on where I spend my money. As much as I love everything and would buy everything at the faire. I have to be realistic on what would work in the amount of space we have in our little home.
But I am very happy with my little finds, like these awesome antlers
and these cute little gold striped glasses
Pretty excited to display these sparkling beauties on the new bookcase.
I also have big plans for the antlers which involve a little can of spray paint.
So has anyone else hit up the Faire lately? Find any goodies?
Remember that Bridal Shower I was freaking out about a couple months ago.
Well…. it was a huge success and I have some pretty pictures for you all.
The Bride Melissa, looking flawless as usual.
Nothing like having your Bridesmaid there to lotion up your legs!
As you all know I have no outdoor furniture. So we combined some outdoor furniture from my mother in laws, a vintage desk from my bestie Allison, and pulled some vintage pieces I had around the house. I loved the feeling it gave to the space.
The Bride had the cutest idea, to hang lingerie on clothes pins across the pergola. It came out so cute!
Funny enough I had this old window lying around the house, and I’m happy to say I put it to good use finally!
Another one of the Bride’s amazing ideas, cupcakes in a jar. They were pure deliciousness.

So there you have it! A beautiful vintage chic Bridal Shower for my amazing bestie.
Do you have any fun parties coming up at your home?
I’d love to hear how you tackle them, do you hire a caterer or do you slave away in the kitchen like we did?
Some new items are up in the shop today!
Here are just a few of the goodies
Great now I have that song stuck in my head! : )
Trying to decide on a door knocker..hmm so many good options out there.
I’m thinking bronze, as all my other hardware is bronze.
But I’m not 100% on that as my current hardware is satin nickel and it actually goes really well with the new door color.
So first up, are some Pottery Barn options
This one is pretty classic and it can be monogrammed! I like that.
Then there is this adorable knocker with a cute little bird perched on top. I don’t know if I can fully commit to tweety though.
I could go more vintage and get this guy off Etsy. I’d still have to spray paint it bronze though.
Here’s a rustic one I found on Amazon
Another rustic one from eBay
Hahaha I’m sorry, I had to put this one up!
I think I prefer the cleaner lines, like this knocker by Baldwin
Oooo Yes! I think I found a winner! Restoration Hardware’s Ring Door Knocker
Here it is in satin nickel too
Help me pick one! Which one is your fave?
