The Goods

I can't tell you all how nice it feels to be such warmly welcomed back! Thanks so much! I've always been super bad about responding back to people that leave comments, especially if their emails don't show up in the notification. From here on out I plan to do my best leaving responses back to you in the comments section.

Corner by Bedside

Each comment warms my heart completely, so I want you all to know how much I appreciate them!

Last weekend we hit some church rummages and I scored tons of children's books and games. Since I recently started working in a school this is super helpful to score stuff cheap like this.

Animal Zoo

On our way back, our truck was super full but we couldn't help stopping at just one more yard sale. A couple of sweet old ladies were selling furniture they had bought 40 years ago while living in Germany. Lucky for me- they're totally my style.

Side Table with my Field Guides

I can't even tell you how nice matching sidetables makes me feel. Honestly, even though, ugg, I am almost the big three O, matching side tables sort of makes me feel like an adult. Funny because this week I just had a kiddo tell me I don't look like a teacher I look like a kid. Thanks. I think.

Field Guides

My vintage field guides. These are so incredibly fun to flip through. If you like these check out my etsy shop- just listed a couple.

Animal Zoo

I've been hanging onto this heavy weight cake stand and lid, trying to figure out what to do with it. I put a couple of my favorite plastic animals in it and it just worked on the night stands.

Wow, fantastic night stands, and I love the animals in the cake stand. So clever!

Deb said...

I LOVE the nightstands and I think the cake stand is just begging to be a mossy terrarium....

Just my two cents.

Thanks Jilly! I love the cake stand for so long now- but only problem is I never make cakes!

Love that idea Deb! I always admire other peoples terrarium's too. It would be pretty stellar in a cake stand.

Thanks Amy- you're the best! I was seriously surprised at myself to try out such a fun idea like that! Normally I just get frustrated that I don't have enough furniture and everything is a big mess because of it. Thanks for the welcome back too! So sweet:)

I love the animals in the cake stand. That is such a cool idea.
