A Couple of Finds from this Summer

Despite the fact that I fell in love with about 50 million things from the antique shops and quaint little stores we went to up in NH this summer, I only bought four small things (partially because nothing more could possibly have fit in our car and partially because Jon would have died). Anyway, here are two of them. I will show you the other two once I take some pictures of them. I am absolutely itching for autumn to arrive so I can start decorating with all sorts of natural fall elements. Fall is always my most favorite time to decorate, but seeing how it is still in the 90's here I know I need to wait a while longer and not jump the gun.

I loved this adorable little bucket! I am trying to find some subtle ways to bring black back into our house. In our first home we had a ton of it and then when we moved here I got almost completely rid of it and painted everything ivory, white or gray, but the past few months have been starting to bring pops of black back in.

I also found this fun burlap pillow to go in our family room! I had hoped to find a pair of them but no luck. Still I really love how this one looks. The little ribbon was on it and now I am trying to find more of it because I would love to use some similar to tie onto the Fairyland Silhouette Tees (image shown in the post below).

I also hung two of my favorite photos from this summer in some frames I had out in the garage above the chairs.  Eventually I plan on doing something different, but in the interest of saving money (it cost me $4 to print each picture) this works for now!

I still hate the two fur pillows behind the silhouette ones, but as mentioned in a previous post they were all I had in the garage that were the right size and haven't gotten around to buying or making new ones yet. I really really love some from Restoration Hardware that I saw on Lissa's blog, A Dash of Humble Pie. Her home is absolutely gorgeous and I fell in love with these pillows and she was kind enough to tell me where she got them.  Here is a shot of her home:

And of course it's hard to do a post without a few pictures of Miss Lillabel. Especially seeing how I know my family is going through major withdrawels now after her departure.

Here are a few from the farmer's market  in Colonial Williamsburg on Saturday (although its kind of hard to tell we are at the farmer's market in these pics).

Her Auntie Dana spent the morning teaching her how to cross her arms and pout, something she mastered quite well as a child (thanks alot Dana!) =)

Of course her favorite part was the yummy lemonade from Aromas!
Shoes are Joyfolie and Hair Clip and The Scout Dress are Dear Lillie
