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 …

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 …

Make It Tuft: Tufted Furniture with a Masculine Flair (But still Feminine for me)

Posted on by Milla Posted in Living Room Inspiration | Leave a comment

Milla again. I’ve been inspired lately, whoo. But I’ll let you all in on a little secret. Kah has refused to post something until she feels that I have caught up to her post total. Sad face. I admitted to not posting as much, yet I participated in all the DIY. Go me! Either way we both suck. We deserted this site for over a year. Anyway, I saw a post online for tufted a couch. And it’s free. Now …

Claustrophobia: Fear of Enclosed Porches

Posted on by Milla Posted in Inspiration, New House | Leave a comment

Hello Lovelies! Milla here. I hope everyone’s weekend is going well. Mine was rather relaxing. However, I did exercise a little. I have to get into wedding shape. So daily I’ve been running up and down the steps. You all must know how hard this is to do when you have this blocking you… Breeze doesn’t value exercising at all. Oh and don’t mind the unfinished stairs. We will be getting to that eventually. Anyway to the point of this …

Why So Serious: Home Renovation Struggles and Inspiration

Posted on by Milla Posted in Before & After Projects, blog, Breeze, DIY, Inspiration, Kitchen, New House | Leave a comment

Oh Lovelies, has it already been 3 weeks since my last post??? What is happening? I can’t grasp it. I’m on the computer pretty often. And we’re working on so many projects that I can’t feel my legs by the time we are finished. I have all of these post ideas and not enough time, we just can’t keep up. Maybe because we are always saying screw it to taking progress pictures which negates the need for a post. Sigh…dilemmas. …

Got Twins? (Recapping a Year and a Half of Abandonment )

Posted on by Milla Posted in Before & After Projects, blog, DIY, New House | 13 Comments

Oh where, Oh where have those lovely twins gone? Oh where, oh where could they be? *sings* Hello Lovelies!! We have so much to apologize for…starting with the song at the beginning of this post. My apologies I need a pick me up, rough day. Anyway, I’m so disgusted and Kah is too ashamed to show her face here so I volunteered to add the first post after a year and a half of abandonment. Lucky me. So here it …
