Small town goes BIGger

Happy hump day everyone! One more work day for me this week and then it's blue skies and sunshine! I wanted to write a post about our growing town. I have lived here in Windsor my entire life as far as I can remember resources have always been limited, until now. We have a wonderful Oyster bar in town with some of the best food you will ever eat (in my opinion) and we are expanding with two new store fronts! This is big news for a small town. My friend Lori Beth is fulfilling a life long dream of opening Kaley Jase Boutique this Saturday, April 12th and we also have a coffee shop opening soon. Lori Beth already has several items available online.

I couldn't be more excited to walk a mile downtown to pick a new dress and grab a cup of coffee. If you are ever in this area on Saturday make sure to stop by for the grand opening of Kaley Jase Boutique. I should also mention (as a big fan and friend of the owner) Bunns BBQ will not disappoint you if you're looking for great BBQ. Ask for a corner piece of cornbread! Have a great rest of your week!

Oh the struggle...

I find myself constantly needing change. A weather change, nail polish, pillows, paint, it's a never ending process with me. I am steadily rearranging things in my house and looking for something new to put here or there. The latest topic of conversation in our home has been the buffet in our dining room. I have struggled with what to put on it since the day we moved it in. I have put pictures and flower arrangements but couldn't seem to find anything fitting. My sister stumbled upon this picture on Pinterest last week and it seemed to be exactly what I was looking for. We went thrifting this weekend and I found a white ceramic vase for $1, what a steal! This is what I can up with on a days notice...

Tray is part of the Nate Berkus collection at Target

 I would like to add more white ceramic pieces as I find them but for now I am finally somewhat satisfied. I also decided to give this old wooden tray a face lift with some fresh white paint (which I think will brighten up just about anything).

 It's only a matter of time before I'm off to find yet anther item or room in my house to mix up. I look forward to the relief of having everything decorated just the way I want, if that is ever possible. Have a great week everyone!
