me of course being the yellow bottle :) Last night I got to hang out with my friends Ben, Kristina and Jimi who I haven't seen in almost six months! It was so great! We all went to college together and lived together for four years. We were all back in Florissant, and we all kept saying how we hadn't felt "at home" until that moment. It was sooo much fun, and I miss those guys... I even miss Florissant a tiny bit. (not my itty bitty cramped apartment, though)
Another thing that makes me so happy I could poop a rainbow is thrifting... and I owe yall a post of all my recent thrifting finds :)
- Tea cups
The teapot is Japanese, and these cups have a really pretty floral branch that reminds me of Japanese cherry blossoms. And I was super lucky to find these because they are the exact same color brown as my tea pot.
2. The little owl
3. funky woven basket
4. vintage canisters
5. My first Halloween/fall decoration
Free recipe- mix equal parts candy corn and peanuts and enjoy. It tastes like a Payday. so good :)
5. Christmas card tree
While we are on the topic of holiday decorating, I found this great 3-3.5ft card tree, which I can't wait to use. I have a card wreath that hangs on my fridge... that is until you put cards on it, and then it falls on the floor because the people who made it did not put strong enough magnets to hold any weight about the pre-card weight... ugh! I hate poorly made products. (Oh and that narly wood behind the tree is something I found in my basement and it is on it's way to becoming a really cool shabby chic coffee table :)
I was really impressed that this came from an Illinois native, so far a lot of the art I've collected has been from my own state. (Because let's face it, we've got Chicago and there are TONS of good artists up there!) I really can't wait to get the art wall I'm doing in my kitchen figured out and hung up... I still need a few more pieces though. There will be a "Keep calm and carry on" poster in there... but what color... hmmmm....
Also, and this is only because I can't help myself... I'm going to share two youtube videos... Check these out if you haven't all ready, they crack me up :)
