My Weekend

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.

  1. How did you like drybar? Which blowout did you get? I haven't decided yet if their beachy waves will really be that much more magnificent than what I can pull together in my bathroom for free. I know, the whole getting your hair did and drinking a mimosa is part of it too - I'm just cheap.

    P.S. I love those pillows from ikea so much, it hurts. I currently have nowhere to put them, and that is why I haven't clawed my way through the crowds to have my own.

    Good luck house hunting!

  3. ashley - i went to dry bar to be a hair model for a girl that works there (for a class. i drank wine and enjoyed the atmosphere)! she gave me a lovely bridal updo. :) but, i met her at my own salon, where she just started working as well, and she blew out my hair there, and she did an amazing job. i want to go back soon! it was a fun environment. i'd save it for a special occasion though, because your hair always looks great when you do it!

  4. pink flamingo style - i go to lots of them! The ones i went to this weekend were in decatur (last chance and salvation army) and on northside drive. i really just go to them all over town, and i really like finding them in the suburbs -- they always seem better.
