Flea Market Finds

The D.C. Flea Market was a blast! Meeting Eddie and Jaithan and walking around with them made the flea less intimidating! It's big, let me tell you. And every time I go to one of these, I want to buy something and feel this pressure to get the most unique piece I can find. Eddie's tour was so helpful and made me look at things I would have never looked at it. Instead of just going right for furniture, which I usually do, I scoped out glassware, barware, and smaller, more unique items.

This is what I came away with:

A pair of French opaline glasses (in my favorite robin's egg/turquoise blue)

This great oil/vinegar cruet with a greek key pattern (Eddie wanted to steal this!)

Overall, it was well worth the money to tour the flea with Eddie! I'll definitely be back next year and hopefully meet more fellow bloggers.


DC Flea Market

Tomorrow afternoon, I am heading to the DC Flea Market (actually in Chantilly, VA) and I am meeting Eddie Ross! I cannot wait! There are still spots left I think. Check it out here!

And if you haven't seen his new home with partner Jaithan Kochar, you can view it here in the first issue of Lonny.


Been a Long Time Since I Rock 'n' Rolled

I realized I haven't posted since the end of June. That's a long time... I guess summer adventures and wedding planning kind of take over! We had a great week in Narragansett, RI where Brian's parents built a beach house! Thank goodness for my in-laws :) Now we have a new place to vacation every summer.

There was a bridal shower and our mothers met for the first time. My sister was there, as well. It was all very fun yet overwhelming. The wedding will be here in less than a month, and we'll be so happy to stop planning and enjoy our time together with no worries!

Hope you all enjoyed the summer. I am glad fall is almost here. It's my favorite. Just like smiling--smiling's my favorite. I need a vacation again...
