Flea Market Finds & Inspiration

I don’t know exactly what you would call it, but we hit up Hawthorne Hill Farms. We scored a few things and found lots of inspiration.

I fell in love with this globe. I decided I am going to start collecting globes. Why not?

A crate made out of rulers…yes, please!

In case you didn’t know, nine is my number. Always has been, so I had to grab a giant nine when I saw it. We also picked up some botanical prints.

I am so excited about my new finds and the personality they add to my space. I also loved all the inspiration I saw all around me. I’m head over heels for this little jewelry booth display.

I am just itching to pick up one of those forms and throw some fabric and upholstery tacks on it. I think it would look divine on my dresser showing off my necklaces.

Our weekend was jam-packed. We just cannot get enough of this beautiful weather. We also managed the circus (my first ever) and dinner out with the family. Eleanor loved the elephants and Quinn has plenty of “cool tricks” to show off now. How did you all spend your weekend? Anyone else decide to start collecting something recently?

    I love the ruler crate! How cute.  I have never heard of this place. I might have to check it out next time we are in the area!

      Thanks! Me too. I already felt like I needed to collect rulers/yardsticks and now I have another reason to do so.

      Thanks! My globe collection is a bit weak. Grand Total: ONE! But now I have a mission while hitting the rummage sales, etc.
