Royal Oak Antique and Garage Sale: Things I Didn’t Buy But Wish I Did

Last weekend was one of my favorite events of the year in Metro Detroit- the Royal Oak Antique and Garage Sale. For those of you that have never been, this isn’t just an average garage sale.

Welcome Home: Bedroom Makeover

A few weeks ago, we started our master bedroom makeover. It all started with us wanting to get carpet in before baby was here, as we had laminate floor that echoed our excited dogs “dancing” each morning when we began to stir. It woke up Roy quite a bit when he was little-little and sleeping [...]

Furniture Shopping

On Saturday, Dan did something he NEVER does with me – thrifting. While he loves reaping the rewards of having a wife who digs for vintage, he absolutely hates shopping with me. And there is one place in particular that he hates above all, my secret stash place (only the best of friends ever learn [...]

We’ve been busy…

I need to stop saying “More regular blog posts on their way!”, cause it seems that I jinx it every time. We’ve been awfully busy lately, doing lots of stuff like: Getting our old house rented out Getting a new ‘do Bachelor and Bachelorette partying Hunting for new old furniture for our home LOTS of [...]
