Busy weekend, beautiful day.
Ok, so what first, what first....hmmm, well, it looks as though Sam and I are moving from our cute little art deco duplex to a modern apartment, and while I'm sad to leave the place I'm not sad to leave behind the mold taking over our bedroom walls. One of the risks of living in a brick building in the north west I suppose, but still I'll miss it's charm. So we've started packing up, but there's still a long way to go. As for my Etsy shop, I will be having a big sale this week in order to clear everything out. I'll still keep the shop open with a few items now and then, but won't be doing it full time, instead focusing on Vixen Vintage and my part time job at a vintage shop. Exciting times!
Ok, now for the adventurous day! After a morning of packing away fabric and the crazy amount of dresses in my repair pile (more like mountain), I met Twila Jean for some gardening. Since the gardening plan didn't work out we took the kiddies for a walk around the neightborhood, it was such a nice day, even if it was windy! As we were heading back home we walked past an old worn down house with furniture piled on the front porch. Being the estate sale vultures that we are we asked if they were cleaning house or having an estate sale.
Well it was neither, they were taking the last of the houses furniture to salvation army, and offered us anything we wanted. So we walked up on the front porch, but instead of looking at furniture, the most amazing wallpaper past the open front door and in the house caught our eye. So the people invited us in! It was quite exciting, they showed us all the rooms, from the parlor to the kitchen, and the apartment-like rooms upstairs. The house is from 1908, with lots of original features, but in need of some work. Although it is amazing just the way it is, reminds me of the setting of an Anthropologie catalogue. Actually, I wish I was wearing something other than gardening clothes, then it really would have looked like an Anthropologie photoshoot. The people in charge of the estate were so nice to let us look around and take pictures, I just hope the next owners don't take down that amazing burgundy wallpaper!
