Hello sweet friends.

I have spent the last few days knee deep in my vintage hoarding collection. When it comes to decorating, there is nothing I love more than vintage treasures.

I have been sorting, cleaning, packing and shipping some of my very best treasures. Next week, I am teaming up with my sweet pals KariAnne and Heather, and we are headed to Chapel Market!
