The state of things + weekend flea market find!

There's a close up for you..I love to scour flea markets, I'm afraid my children will too, because I drag them along {neither seems to mind}! This weekend I purchased this green/blue glass "carboy" as I was told it's called. They are used for making beer and wine, which is fitting as I love both..I'm going to fill it with water and long grasses from my yard. My dream is to someday have a {very small} store that would house my design office and revamped flea-market finds. I really have a love of lamps and chairs, but I've run out of room..{would also love a small barn or garage someday - a makeshift workshop}



Also, an update on Emerson's room. See the concept here, if you missed it! I purchased these amazing letterpress graphic posters. Each is signed by the designer. I don't want to go overboard with sticky sweetness, so I thought these would be perfect. I like the message and the design. I'm going to have them individually framed for above the headboard. "Always Play Amongst Friends" from Brooklyn's Friends of Type..I also scored a simple little dresser at a yard sale. I'm going to paint it charcoal and add these glass pulls from The Paris Apartment. {they have the best glass pulls}

Remember my idea to frame images of deer and bunnies, well I'm going to do it gallery style above or on either side of the crib..{i always get nervous about hanging things above the crib}

would also love to incorporate some paper hangings..image via Making it lovely.

I am loving where Emerson's room is going - it's going to be adorable!

I love that 'carboy' - never knew this term before. I've been looking for some vases (carboys) in just that color and look - great find!

I absolutely love the prints and the phrase. I think its a dynamite idea for a nursery/kids room.

Im a HUGE bunny lover {we have two!}.

Glad you found out the name for the ''big glass vase'' as I call them, I picked up a pair last year. One of them is being used as a money jar.

It's so easy to make paper "poufs" from gift tissue. I have some hanging in my daughter's room and they are so cheerful and striking! There are good instructions on martha stewart's blog. One tip - the larger the pouf, the harder to make it look like a pretty flower. Medium sized works great - think 8 to 10 inches in diameter.
