Just thought I'd check in today with a few photos from my weekend. How was your's? Did you celebrate St. Paddy's day? Jordan was out of town, so I hung out with friends and did a little thrift store shopping, which I haven't done in forever. I'm trying to save those dollar billz these days (for the new house, whenever we find it!), so I thought I'd go to a few thrift stores on Saturday, after doing some work.
I found this Mexican blanket at a thrift store, in some of my favorite recent colors - black, white, red and lavender. I love the way it looks on our bed, with my two black and white Ikea pillows and the geometric printed pillow cases from Target! Kind of updates the bedroom a little bit, while I'm waiting for us to move :)
I also found this cool terra cotta vase (in the background):
I can't wait to put some flowers in it this spring. The triangular pattern and Native-American-feel is very current, don't you think?
I also found this cute fish dish. Its about 8" in diameter:
cute! It's very mid-century-modern, and I love the gold brushed detailing on him! I have to fix his lips, though, where it is chipped a little.
While I was out and about, Mika chilled on the couch ALL DAY LONG.
He was sitting here every time I walked back in the door. Lazy bum.
Yesterday was my mom's birthday, so we went to Griffin to celebrate with her.
I bought her this cute card that my friend Lisa's company (Farewell Paperie) makes:
All their cards are really funny. "Birthweeks" seem to be the popular thing now, don't they?
I took this photo at my mom's house, amongst the clovers. Very St Patricks day, no? :)
Last but not least, I went to Drybar last week, and saw this cute chandelier, made of hairdryers. Have you guys been there? The decor is amazing.
I thought this chandelier was perfect for them! Im doing some work in a hair saloon soon, involving a cool stencil, made specifically for the hair-cutting situation... can't wait to do it, and share it with you guys.
Hope you all have a great (and productive) week! I will be busy painting my life away, and trying to find a house to live in.
