When things get a little crazy around here, we tend to eat out, load up on sweets (mainly me), and just get frazzled – it’s just not good all around. So last week, I took a little break to regroup, tidy up our place, hang some pictures, eat lots of fresh fruit, cook simple meals, visit my mom and Igby several times – and take home new plants she potted for us. Friday night, I decided what the heck, let’s go to Austin for the weekend. So BJ, my sister Tam, and I left everything behind for a relaxing couple of days. It was just what we needed.
It’s mainly been quiet around here with my teaching and work ing on the store. I’ve been picking up a few vintage pieces here and there to furnish the space. Just as we were leaving Uncommon Objects, BJ spotted the fold out mirror pictured below. Lately, I’ve been obsessed with mirrors – especially old shaving mirrors- even though we really don’t need more. So I said – Hey, if the store doesn’t need it, I’ll buy it for our place. Said the same thing goes for that rug. (I promise the M&S gets first dibs though!) We’ll start posting more often here, if you want to keep up with our progress.
