ten under twenty

10 finds under 20 bucks

TEN!! I did it! Unlike last time, when my brain stopped at seven and photoshop walked out on me.

Mean, mean photoshop.

Hope you enjoy this latest roundup of stuff we use/adore/covet. All under twenty bucks. Yay.

Liberty Antiques Festival

liberty5Laura and I had a ball shopping for Posy at the Liberty Antiques Festival last weekend! It’s the ultimate thrifting experience, if you’re into that sort of thing. It takes place twice a year on 100 acres of North Carolina farmland. Which means there’s seriously a lot of stuff for sale. If you go, be sure to listen for the lady on the PA system. Her announcements alone are worth the price of a ticket. (So is the BBQ. And the kettle corn.) Here are a few shots from our adventure:

seven under twenty

collage of finds under $20

This was supposed to be “ten under twenty” but I ran out of gas in photoshop. Also I’m lazy and there are three episodes of Parks and Rec waiting for me on the DVR.

So … I give you … (drumroll) … seven under twenty!

The idea? I love (LOVE) pretty collages of beautiful finds on design and fashion blogs. But usually I can’t afford a single thing. Even $50 is a high price point for me (says the lady who buys her fancy shoes at Target). So I thought it would be fun to put together collages of stuff I use/wear/covet at the moment … all under twenty bucks.

And next time, there will be ten. As long as the DVR is empty.

camera cookie cutters!

I don’t know who would love these more, Lily or me.

Okay. Me.

Because after we baked and decorated our cookies I’d ask Lily to pose with her creation so that I could take her picture and she would grimace and whine and probably just stuff the cookie in her mouth instead.

But we’d really have fun getting to that point.
