Can you believe I found this giant old chalkboard at a garage sale last weekend for …
FREE (insert flamenco dancer emoji here)!
I tried to act all nonchalant and cool while she was secretly laughing at me for wanting this old and crusty cob web riddled thing. Well who got the last laugh judgmental garage sale lady!
My friends amazing daughter is so talented and I asked her to create a fall masterpiece and the star of the show is my dog Sushi! I’m going to have a hard time ever erasing this.
I love the clean lines of my mid century modern style sofa and I added lots of wicker and rattan and a sea grass rug for texture.
I have so many vintage collections that I have to rotate them or my house would be a scene from Hoarders.
This wicker side table is a favorite.
A colorful box varies the height of a trio of old seltzer bottles.
I performed a heroic rescue when I saved this old Whitman’s Chocolate crate from my neighbors trash.
My number one estate sale tip is make a bee line for garages and basements for amazing, cheap finds like this old milk crate.
P.S. Don’t miss my hydrangea growing tips so you can have armloads of spectacular hydrangeas.
A huge Moroccan brass tray on my coffee table is the perfect place to display vintage Netcox mugs that make the perfect planters.
Does having a collection of old hand mirrors mean I’m vain?

Open shelves are a fun way rotate my favorite things including a colorful collection of decanters.
I love to layer artwork in the back of shelves for more interest.
Can you believe this is the original velvet fabric on these mid century club chairs!
I like tucking unexpected things in my planters. I replaced the summer seashells with these old wooden down spouts.
Every room needs a plant or two and pothos and snake plants are very low maintenance.
They say an elephant with it’s trunk raised is good luck. I was lucky to find him in a thrift store.
I think that lucky elephant was responsible for my free chalkboard score!
Sushi loves her portrait!
Here’s to mixing things up this fall!
