Eleven Things Volume 3

1.  I'm anxiously watching the clock to check in for my flight to Austin, TX tomorrow.  I've never been and I'm excited to see if their vintage shopping lives up to the hype.

2.  It's supposed to be 100 all weekend...sheesh...at least it won't be raining. 

3.  I went treasure hunting last weekend...driving all over the state...ended up with TWO things...grand total $6...probably spent triple that in gas...(and the two things were bought close to home).  This amazing 1/2 gallon aqua mason jar with a zinc lid (found in a gross box o' crap) and then this super cute little silver cup/dish that was previously covered in tarnish and grease...polished up without a scratch on her. 




4.  I went to an estate sale where a fight almost broke out at the front door...there were 4 of us...it's really not that serious people

5.  This is my 30th blog post...I wasn't sure if anyone would read it when I started back in February...but I realized it doesn't matter as long as I feel fulfilled.  I'm getting there...

6.  I'm working on a multi-table project for a friend...here's a sneak peek.  Neutrals were hard for me but the color combo is growing on me :)




I've already grouted the table with a lighter gray grout, now I just need to finish painting the rest of the tables :) 


Yes, I sometimes work in my dining room...and not in a clean and orderly manner obviously :/

7.  I really want to work on believing in myself and not caring what others think, #workinprogress

8.  I can't wait to buy some junk!  I might photo my strategic packing because I'm sure it's going to be a thing of beauty

9.  I found this super cool old drawer on Etsy, didn't have to do a thing to it and I got it for a good price




10.  I am now a believer in faux.  My Mom makes amazing flower arrangements using silk flowers but I've always preferred the real thing.  Well, I was looking for something to fill my silver urns in my kitchen and my vase on my nightstand (I had some purple-blue hydrangeas in there before). 

I found these amazing faux flowers (not silk) at Hobby Lobby and I am CRAZY about them.  Look at the real thing and the imposters-good enough for me for fall/winter!

 11.  I think I'll go crank up my iTunes, pack for Austin and check-in in 11 minutes ;)

Happy Treasure Hunting!
