Good morning to you on this gorgeous Monday!
How was your weekend? I hope you got to spend some time with people you love or doing something that you love.
I went to a baby shower, watched movies with the kids, had a long Sunday lunch with family, and even got some time to work on projects, which has been nearly impossible this last week thanks to baby Elijah's new go-to-bed habits. (He has decided that instead of turning in at 8:00 or 9:00 like his siblings, he would rather be carried or driven around for 30-120 minutes until he passes out. By the time this is over, I am a zombie without an ounce of creative energy left in my entire soul!)
If you follow me on Instagram, you know there was a little shopping in my weekend, too. I know I've told you about Junkadoodle before, and if you are local to Dallas, it is time to make your way over there before it's too late.
Junkadoodle is closing it's doors on September 1. They have been open for 17 years, and have decided that's a good run. For about 12 years, ever since I moved out of my parent's house, I've been buying from there--little odds and ends or furniture that I could never find anywhere else. I'm going to be sad when it's gone. (I'm already sad!)
I went over there on Saturday after the baby shower and spent a good chunk of my fix-up-the-house fund on some things I just couldn't leave behind. I couldn't resist--everything was 50% off! I'll be showing you some of my haul as I put it to use, but here are a couple phone pics I snapped as I was waiting to check out.
Sweet little chandelier for Emma's room (I think).
This funky 60's lamp is going straight into my front room, just as soon as I decide exactly where. I'm a big fan of the glass and wire combo.
If you can, make a trip over there one last time to say goodbye, and maybe pickup something cool for the house. I did leave a few things for ya. Just a few though.
Here's the address: 4402 W. Lovers Lane, Dallas, Texas 75209
So now that my fave store is closing, do you have any tips on where to shop for cool, vintage, unusual, useful home goods? I shared one of them last week, but I need options!
If you didn't catch it above, I am now on Instagram!
I plan to share sweet moments with the kids, sneak peaks of current projects, and other blog-and-shop related ventures. I'd love to follow you, and have you follow me too! Leave your user name in the comments if you have a public acct. Mine is Lassothetruth. Follow me!
