Simple Dollar Tree DIY Succulent Terrariums

August 17, 2018

Succulents, both real and faux, have taken the world by storm over the the past few years. Granted, they've always been around. But their popularity really started to soar on the home decor scene a few years ago. Decor fads come and go, and I can easily ignore most of them. But for some reason this brown-thumbed gardener found the idea of faux succulents, and succulent terrariums, appealing. Case in point.

DIY Farmhouse Shelves -- Two Options

August 14, 2018


Our Hopeful Home's Farmhouse Shelves Pinterest Board

Okay, so I have a Farmhouse Shelves Pinterest Board. (Go ahead and follow it, I know you want to.) There, I said it. Which only goes to show how determined I am to have my own farmhouse shelves, DIY or otherwise. I've narrowed down my options to two, and I'm really hoping to get your advice on which one of them I should choose.

Red Arrow Highway Junkin Trip

Red Arrow Highway Junkin Trip Michigan lower peninsula bike basket flowers balloons
Since moving to the Chicago suburbs over 14 years ago I've discovered a great area along the lower western edge of Michigan that harbors a treasure trove of quaint little antique and vintage shops. Most recently I managed to squeeze in a visit to a few shops in this area during one of our daughter's college visits. It had been a while since I'd perused these places, so I was very happy to get the chance to reaquaint myself with a few old friends.

Are you a fan of vintage Fiestaware? I am. But I recently stumbled across a similarly cheerful vintage pottery line that I am now officially obsessed with: Red Wing pottery. All great collections start with just one special piece. And here's mine.

Thrill of the Hunt #73: Something Different This Time

July 23, 2018


You'll never guess what thrifted items I have to share with you today, friends! They're a bit different from my usual -- there's no kitsch. I repeat: no kitsch. But I am stoked about them just the same. I picked them up at that local pop-up estate sale I told you about in Thrill of the Hunt #72. And I definitely plan on using them in my home rather than sell them in my Etsy shop. Aren't you in the least bit curious? Let's go!

Thrifted Vintage Louis XV French Bergere Chairs -- French Country Chic!

July 20, 2018

vintage bergere chair French

After a thrifting dry spell I was lucky enough to come across what I consider to be the holy grail of thrifting -- a vintage French bergere chair. Actually, it was two of them. AND they were affordable. Need I say more? I might normally include the chairs in a weekly Thrill of the Hunt post but they are SO above and beyond that. Which means that they need an entire post devoted to them because I'm so darn excited about it.
