wake up time

Above the mantle.

I love this vase so much!
Found it at Anthropologie.

I've always had this in my must own record list. So excited to have found it this week!

I'm in love with this perpetual calendar
Found it at Target for $9.99, the same one is at Urban Outfitters for $30!

More flowers.

And more... 
When I bought them at the market a lady asked me how many bouquets I was going to make for a party. I had no idea what party she was talking about! So I told her I put them around my house so every day is a party. Hope I didn't sound like a crazy bitch. ;)

My sweetest on earth mother-in-law bought me this purse for Easter. 
I absolutely adore it and can't wait to use it! It's perfect for holding all the things in my purse 
as well as a book or journal when I go to coffee.

Ideas for the day.

Morning Darlings!

It's Friday which is always a good things. Ronald is taking next week off so our "staycation" starts tomorrow! I am so ecstatic to have some time with my sweetie! We are going to be vacationing at home  for most of the week, but we are also heading out to Monterey for two nights which will be perfect. The beach is such a healing and calming place for us, so I'm sure it will be really refreshing. 

While in Monterey we are going to bundle up in hoodies and beanies and sit on the beach one night which sounds magical. I can't wait!

Today I'm going to try to do some crafting. I overdid it physically yesterday (still trying to define my boundaries with my fibromyalgia), so I need to not be too active. If I make something fun I will share it on here.

What are you doing this weekend? I hope something lovely!

  1. Hey Catherine! I hope all is well.

    In August I will be moving to a new apartment in a new city, and I want to decorate! You always photograph so many cute/fun/vintage-looking things in your house (apt?)-- where do you find them? I'm DEFINITELY on a budget, so I am looking forward to some flea markets as the weather gets nicer. But are there any suggestions you have for me for places where I can get inexpensive nice-looking things to decorate with?


    Be well,

  2. Hi NOS! You are such a doll! Thanks for the sweet note, and that you like my decorating means a lot!! :)

    We live in a house. It's a fixer upper (still has some holes in the bathroom floors!), but we renovated half of it last year. I love living here! I hope you like your new apartment and that you can make it feel like home!

    Most of the stuff I have displayed is from thrift stores. I love thrift stores and flea-markets. My advice is to just get the things that you love and don't worry about keeping with a particular theme. For me decorating is about displaying things I love, my goal isn't to make it look good for other people, or look like a magazine, but to make it feel inspiring and calming to me.

    I also shop at discount stores. I'm not sure if you live in the US. But I usually go to Marshall's, Ross, and TJ Maxx. There are so many good things there for great prices!

    Also, I would look on pinterest.com, have you ever looked on that site? They have so many good decorating ideas! And etsy.com sells art prints for great deals, that is where most of my art is from, and they also sell vintage stuff.

    Plus, candles, flowers, and plants are so nice to liven a place up! I have a whole table of plants and I love caring for them.

    Anyway, I hope this helps. I know with my depression, decorating is a nice outlet for me, and having a home with things I love helps when I'm down.

    Good luck!
