monthly plannerMy Monday mornings involve a strategic planning meeting with my cup of coffee and my planner.  Usually this consists of me drinking about five cups of coffee and looking at instagram on my phone.

All I have on the books this week is scouring antique stores for a vanity table (I haven’t discussed this with The Boyfriend yet but I’m sure he’ll agree this is a sensible buy) and designing bride and bridesmaids jewelry for a wedding in Canada.

But first, just one last peek on instagram.



antique shopping…

Along my running path this morning, I found cluster of antique shops and restoration stores.

Kind of like a mix of junk slash refinished antiques.antique store

Truly the type of stores I need to stay out of.  I’m not sure how much “junk” one can own, but apparently it’s a lot.

And I have another flower market coming up this weekend so I’ve been looking for little antique/vintage pots and containers for flowers and herbs.

Which unfortunately leads to the thought process, “well this would look good in my house.”

Or “let’s spray paint that neon pink.”  It’s alarming how many things I want to spray paint pink.  Actually, it’s alarming how many things I’ve already spray painted pink.

I mean, a neon pink flamingo?  Don’t hate it…
