Twinterest Tuesday yet again. I hope every one had a fabulous weekend. So…this was one of the more difficult roundups to complete. There seemed to be an insane number of food and “men I hope to marry” pins this week. I understand how food recipes are pin-worthy, but the latter…um who cares. Either way view the goodies below: Like this: Like Loading…

If any of you have been treated to buckets of non-stop rain the past few days, I bet you are ready for another chair makeover. We’re so excited to show you guys what took us only three days to complete. Yes, we’re crazy obsessed with our DIY projects.

We haven’t had a project post in three days! Ugh, I’m so disgusted. Mother nature has really killed our DIY buzz these days. Also, the sun has been running away before 8pm, not good for us since we work late some days. However, the good news and the reason for this post is that we’ve been working on some projects. We mentioned in previous posts that we’re currently designing another little girl’s room. In the past couple of weeks, we’ve …

Tuesday seems to roll around so fast. I felt like I just did a roundup. Anyway, today is Twinterest Tuesday! It’s the last Tuesday of August. Not too sad to see it go this year though.

Posted on by Milla Posted in art, Inspiration, Vintage | Leave a comment

Recently we’ve received several compliments on the artwork hanging above our beautiful chair. We purchased it at our local Goodwill, however it’s available for a reasonable price of $30.00 here (sorry, not framed). And because we like vintage art so much we decided to do a roundup of posters available for purchase online.

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

It’s Friday. Frugal Friday to be exact! Albeit mother nature had it in for the East Coast all week, we found time to check out a couple local thrift stores and Goodwill’s. Some not so local, but we’d drive a little bit of a distance for a good deal. Most if not all things we saw this week we actually purchased. Yes, the temptation got the best of us. We’re so weak.
