I spent this past weekend shopping. Shopping, and talking, and laughing, and eating good food. With friends and our husbands. No kids. It was awesome.
This time of year the Christmas decor always sucks me in. Every January when I’m packing away all the Christmas fluff and glam I vow I will not buy another thing that classifies as Christmas decor. But by November the faint memories of packing all that stuff away are blown completely South with the warm weather. And something glittery and bright just begs to come stay at my house.
All White and Silver, ornaments, houses, crown, deer, glitter, nativities… I love it all.
Restoration Hardware, Crate and Barrel, Target, Sobo Style – Loveliness I couldn’t leave behind.
Love how this little guy catches the light and reflects the colors around him.
Holly or Mistletoe? Not sure which this is supposed to be but it’s lovely. Travis prefers to think of it as mistletoe
Remember my thrift shop and estate sale finds? This weekend I scored 2 more of these great old laundry baskets! This brings my total to seven. I do believe I finally have enough I can use a couple as props at my upcoming event. I like my props to be for sale, and I couldn’t part with my laundry baskets when I only had two!
We made a stop at one of my favorite fabric stores – Sew to Speak And it wasn’t even me who suggested we go there. Honest it wasn’t. Of course once the suggestion was voiced I headed there as fast as possible before someone vetoed it!! And once in the shop I was the one who shopped the longest. And spent the most money. Some of this fabric is already made into some fun stuff that will be going with me to ‘Not Your Mama’s’ Craft Market.
My wardrobe needed a little pick-me-up too. I finally have some clothes that don’t look like they need to be cut up for the rag-bag.
I found this darling little crown baby ‘hat’ and had to buy it for my photographer friend Belle.
I also found these cool folding chairs at a thrift store. $8.10 for both. They both have the seats, I just already took one of them off. I plan to paint the chairs and recover the seats. I’m also contemplating trying to get the back stuff out and put fabric there too. The fact that these fold is just so cool to me! Great props
I got a few things for the kids too. I got Larke and Becca their Christmas outfits but I haven’t even told them I did. Travis thought I should save them. If I showed them to the girls now I’d never hear the end of it till I let them wear them right away. I’ll post some pics of them in a few weeks at Christmastime
Have you gone on any fun shopping trips recently?
