Weekend Recap

It has yet to stop raining since last week, so I figured I would find an indoor activity for the weekend.  I finally made it out to this fabric store that Christine over at Design Esquire posted about!  I got there late in the day on Saturday and they closed at 5:30...the staff might have had to drag me out {they said it happens all the time}.  I took some pictures on my cell phone, but head on over to Christine's blog for the full write up.  It's insane. 

Before I was dragged out, I asked to have a few things cut.  There was only a little bit of the Greek key trim left, so I snatched up a bit:

I was going to cover a bench in this:

{on the left} but it seems I need just a bit more...I'm sure I'll find a use for it.  Bottom line about this fabric store: If you live in or around Boston, I highly suggest taking a trip out to this place!

On my way back I stopped at Home Goods. Very Dangerous.  All of my pics are from my phone on this journey...forgive me.  But the pillows on the left are a bright orange.  

I had the orange in my cart and then put them back after having a little talk with myself....

and I wanted to paint this mirror:

would love to reupholster this:

Anyway, I think we all know there are a ton of scores there!  

Last stop was anthro. adore their Spring visuals...

ended up with this pitcher:

it was significantly on sale and I had been eyeing it for a while.  love it.

There are hints in this post about this weeks series.  I will be back tomorrow with week 2 and a small giveaway!
