Oh, Sweet Friday

This week has been hectic and full. I’m very guilty of loading my plate with ridiculous portions – oh, busy, busy bee! – and it usually results in silly arguments with my favorite man.

Vintage Bazaar!

You may remember last year when we hit up the first annual Vintage Bazaar in our ‘hood’s music venue, The Congress Theater. Well, the 2011 edition was yesterday, and it was awesome. Same place; same time. Everything from Herman Miller chairs to old bowling pins, prints, letterpress, and pre-made terrariums were represented. We evenKEEP READING >
