I've had SO MUCH school work going on lately. Today I just couldn't make the Flea Market, and last week I was just too aloof to even remember the Rose Bowl. On the bright side, I took a quick break today to take photos of some previous flea market finds. It is so much fun... Continue Reading →
Sometimes I feel like my entire weekend revolves around finding that perfect antique. I've been to random parts of town, swap meets, flea markets, and crazy apartments that have items listed on Craigslist. I've endured many a sunburn and mastered the art of digging in my purse for cash, negotiating, and holding an umbrella during rainy... Continue Reading →

Lately, I've been looking around for pieces to help a friend's living room shine. During my search, I've become obsessed with benches. Yeah, a weird thing to be obsessed with, but I guess that comes with the territory when you're always looking at furniture. Anyway... I came across this bench on Chairish yesterday and can't get...
