Vintage Market Days Haul

Vintage Market Days Haul

I am just girl who loves to buy all “the things.” Put me in an open air market in the Spring, Summer, Fall, or Winter and I am one happy shopper. The live music and food trucks at VMD are just a bonus, next to all the vintage decor.

I remember going to my very first Vintage Market Days in Kansas City a few years ago and I was hooked! Vintage Market days is a carefully curated market. The vendors spend days building their booths, and you will not leave disappointed. It is everything you have searched for (vintage, chippy, decor). Whether you are looking for it is under one roof, or maybe two depending on the market! Did you know there are over 69 different VMD Locations. You can click here and find a market near you!

Most locations have not one but two markets a year! I have purchases everything from the perfect vintage hutch to shoe-forms and gorgeous architectural salvage! I vow to one day bring home  a buffet table, linen armoire, and a bakers rack! There is so much to find and fall in love with at each VMD. They have vendors from all around the US and they bring it! But enough with my chatting about VMD let me show you some of my favorite finds!

So as a mom of three boys….four if you count the husband…I find it to be a real struggle to keep my bathrooms clean and fresh during any season. So I searched and found some amazing deals to brighten my spaces and I am excited to share them with you.

I love this time of year. The kids are home for the Summer and we get to spend our days making memories and our nights usually consist of making s’mores by the fire, or driving to our local ice cream shop for a refreshing treat to cool us down.

So before school lets out I had to grab a few things to refresh our bathroom spaces and lighten up the decor for the Summer.

Ya’ll know my obsession with lemons… So why not use lemons in my bathroom, right? All of the items in this blog post are from Kirklands! Check out their online site for these and more home decor items.

Making a Small Lounge Feel Bigger

Making a Small Lounge Feel Bigger

Modern homes are often a lot smaller than older houses. Only those of us that can afford to spend a lot on our house have the kinds of lavish and spacious rooms that we might have once dreamed of. The rest of us have to think smaller or prioritize. When looking at new houses, your priorities might include things like big bedrooms for your kids to play in, lots of garden space and a roomy kitchen to cook up some culinary creations. You might want modern bathrooms, and for some of us, a dining room to entertain in comes high on our wish lists. A big lounge might not seem that important if all you do is watch TV and relax in there.

We live in a time where pretty much all of us are blessed to say we have a fully functioning home that can keep us sheltered and safe. With the way the builders, electricians, plumbers and other highly-skilled workers have been grafting away at homes, we tend to forget that they are just materials formed together to make a big hut!

They’re not impenetrable, and they’re not unbreakable, however. We don’t often have overly distressing problems with our homes, but they certainly can happen. Perhaps it’s a tiny, little mistake you’ve made that can lead to a huge issue. They don’t even have to be man-made problems – the earth is a crazy place and can rustle up something disastrous out of nowhere. If some kind of crisis rears its ugly face, then you’ll probably be a little overwhelmed. Let’s take a little look at things you can do to limit any stresses and strains you may have.

Key things to know about co-living spaces

Key things to know about co-living spaces

The current rental market has made it very difficult for people to find affordable accommodation in good areas. There aren’t many options for those wanting to rent and if they do find a small cheap apartment, they usually have to travel very far to get to work. The other option that people may consider is checking Craigslist for a roommate but that comes with its own problems as well. Co-living is becoming increasingly popular in expensive cities as people are now able to experience high end living at a fraction of the price that they would normally pay. Continue reading

Having a large room in your home that you’re not quite sure what to do with is, let’s say, a pretty good problem to have. Sure, it can be harder to cool or heat a large room, but there’s a lot that you can do with it if you set your mind to the task.

All too often, people with large homes, and oversized rooms to spare in those homes, end up using their free space for nothing more sophisticated than chaotic storage.

It’s not exactly uncommon to walk around a large home and be impressed with how tidy and well organised it is, only to then open the wrong door and see mountains of clothes stacked haphazardly all over the place, along with assorted bits of furniture, memorabilia, and general-purpose clutter.

Instead of doing that, here are a few suggestions for things you can do with a large room in your home.
