Knocking Down Walls

over the past few weeks our home has been a bit of a construction site.  we have been fantasizing for months about knocking down a couple walls and we finally did it!  what used to be a small-ish kitchen, dining room, and living room is now one big great room.  i will be posting some before and afters soon, but for now here's a bit of the vibe were going for that includes some pieces we already own, while bringing in some new without breaking the bank...

Buffalo Plaid

loving this seventies masculine plaid print that welcomes fall...

it has become the go-to bag for the boys, we took it to the lake a
couple weeks ago and they kind of took it over, packing it with everything
from books to legos to rubber lizards.  you know, the essentials.

and thanks Total Beauty for featuring me in your buffalo check round up

Weekend Wandering

i spent a good part of the weekend treasure hunting at my favorite flea market and even took the boys along for one trip.  dean developed a keen eye for spotting great things, while cole was much more interested in the food.  here's some of the loot and a couple shots from my instagram...

my favorite finds were this gray hat

and these vintage binoculars with the most gorgeous patina i have ever seen!

keepin' it real while cole began his first novel

and i was so excited to find this tray and a few more gems to add our ever-growing rock collection.
the boys are so into searching for them and there's no complaints from me.  i plan to keep it on
the coffee table where we can enjoy the beauty and it can continue to evolve.

the flea market is mainly responsible for my growing hat collection.

and reason 1,457 of why i love the flea market... the peaceful payoff.

i don't think life gets any sweeter than this.
