Shopping for Home Decor: Finding That Statement Piece

Posted on by Kahli Posted in art, Shopping, Thrift Shopping, Vintage | 8 Comments

Hello all. I hope everyone is having a fabulous day! I’m not. The weather is terrible here in Maryland. It is barely 50 degrees, cloudy, windy and rainy. The weather basically sums up my mood and health perfectly. I’ve been sick for at least three days now, but that didn’t stop me from shopping with my favorite person (that’s Milla if y’all were wondering). On Saturday, at 11 in the morning we left the house to start shopping, which was …

Ikat! And other Tribal Prints: Fabric Inspiration

Posted on by Milla Posted in Decor Inspiration, Inspiration | 1 Comment

Hello Lovelies! Happy Thursday! Question? Is it super cold where you all live? It has been cold and windy every other day in Maryland. Not very spring like at all. Sort of depressing. Also this almost complete kitchen renovation is sucking the life from me. However, in the meantime Kah and I have had our eyes on furnishings and fabrics that we plan to purchase for drapes and upholstering. Things that will collect dust until the family room is complete …

Hello, Kah here! It’s been a long year and a half! Glad to be back. You may have noticed that we started blogging again.Correction, Milla started blogging again. This is my first post for 2014.

The Thrill of Goodwill: Vintage Fine China

Posted on by Milla Posted in Shopping, Thrift Shopping, Vintage | 6 Comments

Hi blog visitors! Welcome back! I tried very hard to get this post published earlier, but the site crashed due to the WordPress automatic upgrade. We were able  to fix it by reinstalling the old version, figuring out which plugins were no longer compatible and found new ones or deactivated them completely. If anyone else is having this problem, try that. So this will be a quick post. I just wanted to show you all this new vintage china set …

Chair Addicts Part Deux continued

Posted on by Milla Posted in Furniture, Shopping, Thrift Shopping, Vintage | 7 Comments

So as promised (a day later, blame Kah)…we are posting more pictures of our lovely vintage chairs from this weekend’s shopping experience. First up is this beautiful tufted chair. The color is absolutely hideous and the fabric has clearly seen better days, but look at that deep tufting. We found this on Craigslist for $50! Don’t you just love when you get great deals on vintage pieces? When I scrolled the pages and came across this, I just had to …

Chair Addicts Part Deux

Posted on by Milla Posted in Furniture, Living Room Inspiration, Thrift Shopping, Vintage | 7 Comments

Hi Lovelies! Thanks for visiting as always. It is appreciated. Anyway we have a problem. Our names are Kah and Milla and we are still addicted to chairs. Specifically, buying and restoring chairs. I had to convince my honey that you can never have enough seating. And if the chair is cheap, vintage, and in excellent shape, he has to let me buy it. But he also has hopes that we will reupholster and resell. I haven’t exactly agreed to …

This is beautiful. What is that Velvet: Furniture Inspiration

Posted on by Milla Posted in blog, Breeze, Furniture, Living Room Inspiration, Thrift Shopping | 2 Comments

Hello lovely visitors! Sorry for the delay. I meant to update two Fridays ago, but our birthday was the 21st.  We are now 27 years old but look younger then most teenagers and often hear, “Ya’ll twins are so cute!” on a daily basis.  Then we suddenly started having internet connection issues. Comcast you are worthless. And even our mobile internet wouldn’t connect! Curse you Sprint. So…we have a recent purchase to showcase. A wonderful Craigslist find of course. It …
