Hello friends! Happy weekend! I've been doing small-ish house changes around the house lately. I've become obsessed with Facebook Marketplace. I've always had a huge love for antiques and vintage pieces, Estate Sales are my happy place! So FBMP is like an always open Estate Sale. It's definitely addicting! I found this table on there and knew it would look great in our breakfast nook area. It's such a small space and there's the backdoor that opens into it and the pantry doors are there too so not just any size table will fit. The table we had before was like a bistro style table and it fit just fine but I was ready for something new after 8 years. So I sold it on FBMP and bought this one, the chairs too. I've also bought a few new coffee table books to lay around the house and I have to share where I've been buying them from. Thriftbooks.com has become my place to look for books and I love that they're slightly worn and some have stamps or stickers in them from where they came from. They have such history! But best of all, I've never paid more than $10 for a book, and free shipping! The books I've bought most recent: The Perfectly Imperfect Home, a few Laura Ashley Style books, At Home with Carolyne Roehm.

The cutest $20 jammies! I love the "Grandpa style" pj's for my kids and was so excited when I found these on Amazon. There's so many cute styles to pick through. I always order a size or 2 up in pajamas for Oliver and Elsie so O is in a size 6 and E is in a 3T. I probably should have gotten her a 4T honestly though! 

My inspiration for a Christmas tree this year! I love the timeless, nostalgic look. I'm on the hunt for a tree collar and I've heard they sell out fast so I'm going to check Target tomorrow and I hope they're still in stock!

I finally ordered some frames for the children's silhouettes I had made a few years ago. Well, Oliver's was 3 years ago and Elsie's was last year. These are who they are made by, Silhouettes by Lena. We had them done in person locally but with Covid I don't know if she's still doing them that way. But it looks like you're able to order from her Etsy page. You just send in a picture of your child instead of her making it right on the spot. 

J. Crew is having a 45% off sale and while searching I fell in love with this fringed collarless sweater. It's so chic and would work great with jeans or throw it over a dress if it's chilly out. The neutral color goes with everything!
