Most of my morning was spent with a couple good buddies, touring some gorgeous homes!
Last year I took you on a mini tour of the Cook's Tour, and that was where I was today.
I only took a few photos via Instagram.
Lots of fun, and several local restaurants teasing us with bite size versions of their food.
The whole tour benefits kids through the Assistance League- one of my favorite places to spend money!
(especially their thrift shop!!)
I picked up a couple 'just for me' items this weekend while I was out.
When my mom and I were out getting our fall porch decos, we ran into a thrift shop to look for some baskets.
I came out with a bunch of stuff, and decided to keep this beautiful statue for my entry.
I have a hard time resisting statues.
It was a bargain at $12.99 and reminded me very much of the one in our powder room, because it was made in Mexico also!
A great Euro look for a fraction of the cost!
For a couple years now, I've been looking for an affordable, sophisticated looking umbrella bucket.
('bucket' doesn't sound very elegant....what's a better name for it?)
(Ok, thanks Ballard Designs, for helping me out)
I liked the look of this one, and it was half off.
Even at regular price it was great deal. $5?
cha ching! sold!
Now I just need to put a cuter umbrella in there.
I also picked up some furniture pieces that I have started on- including a vintage vanity, farmhouse table, and a side table.
Hope to have some makeovers to show you by the end of the week!
