Antique Faire fun

5 Dec

Hey peeps! Hope you all had a fab weekend.

Yesterday my bestie Melissa and I hit up the Alameda Point Antiques Faire

AlamedaPointAntiquesFaire_W-018_fs

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?

my homes wish list

30 Nov

Did you know my home has a wish list?

A very long one too! Which I’m sure you all have as well.

If only we had all the money in the world to buy everything we need / want, right?

so here are just a few things on my wish list for the house

lucite

a pretty glass coffee table. I’ve been lusting over this beauty for some time now, and I think I found a pretty good deal on one off eBay.

My lonely bookcase will soon need some pretty books to adorn it.

as well as a cute pair of foo dogs

so true. must have this.

madebygirl

this would look perfect in our bedroom. I love the gold and white.

bench

I know I know it’s freezing outside, but I just love this bench. Seriously been staring at it for over 6 months.

Sometimes I just need to take the plunge on purchases instead of scouring the internet to find the best deal. It’s a serious addiction I have. Good for others but time consuming for me. haha

PS

Hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving, we shared it with great family and friends as well as food…stretched our leftovers out over 2 days, and had another Thanksgiving with friends on Friday. I don’t even want to know what the scale has in store for me.

throw pillow options

9 Nov

Look what I got in the mail today…

IMG_8390

I really wasn’t lying when I said I wanted to redo all my throw pillows in this new gorgeous fabric line by Caitlin Wilson. The hard part is deciding on which pattern.

IMG_8403

I’m just obsessed with each and every one of these! Ahhh

IMG_8406

Here are the two combinations I’ve narrowed it down to.

IMG_8428

I could stick with my current color scheme of light blue, yellow and gray, Which I still love but I think I might be ready for a change. And if I’m going to purchase all new pillows, I might as well change it up, right?

and now for some ghetto “photoshopping”

yellow combo

IMG_8431

I was really drawn to the navy in this fleur chinoise fabric and there is something so lovely about the pops of pink.

But will the husband really let me bring pink into the mix. This might be a little tricky. He’s already told me he feels like he’s living in my house as opposed to our house. poor guy. I tell him do you want to know what your house would look like if you decorated it. Then he gets it.

So now that you’ve seen my options, which one is your fave?

Fabric Love

25 Oct

The wait is finally over. Well at least it is for me.

I love Caitlin Wilson’s blog, her style is unreal.

She finally launched her fabric line, CWD Textiles and it is to die for.

I’ve already planned to redo all my throw pillows in her new gorgeous fabric.

And the best part is, her pillow covers are super reasonable priced.

Gotta love that.

bookshelf lust

24 Oct

Hi Peeps!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend.

I’ve been lusting over this bookshelf and have been thinking about it all weekend. I must have it.

Right now we have zero shelf space in our living room, so I have no area to display my books and décor pieces.

So like I said…I must have this.

time to convince Ryan.

You can’t really beat the $399 price tag over at Home Decorators.

Vintage Inspired Table Fans

14 Oct

So we are one of those people that sleep with a fan on. We have become so accustomed to the white noise that now we can’t sleep without it. And 2 weeks ago our little rinky dink fan had it’s final days.

This gave me the opportunity to now shop for a cute fan, that would not only serve its purpose in our slumber but also become a stylish decor piece for our bedroom.

So I did a little online shopping and found these:

RH fan

My first fave was this fan from Restoration Hardware. Not only is it beautiful it’s on sale! $149 down to $74! but sadly it’s a final sale and when you add shipping it comes out to over $100. not exactly what I wanted to spend.

soleus

So I searched some more and came across this metal fan from SoleusAir. It’s cute but I wasn’t loving the large blades.

ace trading

Another great fan, but the reviews scared me away.

pelonis

Loved this one, but I really wanted either brushed nickel or chrome.

target

After more online searching I finally spotted this guy at Target

Loved it! The color, the size, the vintage style and of course the $49 price tag.

Happy “hump” day!

I <3 window shopping

30 Sep

TGIF peeps!

I did some Home Goods window shopping last weekend.

How do you like to window shop? Do you always buy at least one item before you leave the store?

Normally I browse around the whole store looking at everything, taking pictures as I go so I don’t forget certain pieces I’m drawn too. Then I do another round, it seems like I always find new things during my second round. Is it like that for you too? It’s like I need a minute to let it all soak in.

My key for window shopping is NEVER grab a cart. I hate carts. I prefer to carry my items, it also gives me time to think about the purchase while I’m lugging it around the store. I think about where I would put it, is it worth the cost, do I have 10 other items similar to it. you know? The crucial things. haha

Here are some goodies I saw, but unfortunately I left empty handed. Sometimes I think it’s better to browse more than you buy, plus it’s nicer on the wallet too.

Have a great weekend!
