HS Love

Searching through a closet I stumbled upon some old photo albums of my mom's while she was in high school. She made a lot of her own clothing and it reminded me to utilize her when it comes to bringing out the old sewing machine:) I love JCrew's tweed mini for fall, so with some help from my lovely mother, I am going to make a fall tweed mini pour moi. Stay tuned for that-in the meantime enjoy these old photos. And yes, my parents were high school sweethearts.

Vintage Find

Golden Ticket
Rainy days call for shoppingWe popped into a local vintage shop, Two French Hens. There was nothing in particular we were looking for, which is always the best scenario since I happened to fall in love with this little beauty-gold chain mail mesh cross-body bag. Love imaging the history it has hadI had been eyeing one in the new Nordy's catalog that just arrived, this one is much easier on the wallet:)

Sunday Market

The food. The people. The best thing about Seattle, especially with friends.

Weekend Project

So...I have had this dresser & chest since I was three and while I love that it's still with me after all these years, I could not stand the look of it any longer. I decided to give it a face-lift.
Handles. I searched all over Seattle for the right knobs & handles to use to update the drawers. There was nothing I absolutely loved so I decided to spray paint the existing ones.
White drawers, gray handles.
