Vintage and furniture thrifting with The South Loop Loft

One of the things I said I was going to do (that I didn’t make time for last year) is head down I-94 to Chicago from Milwaukee and hit up some furniture stores. Then I came across The South Loop Loft online and it is definitely a place I want to see in person. It’s…

Tiny Tot Thursdays: circus and carnival themes

I am so in love with vintage carnival and circus themed parties, showers and themed bedrooms. This one is so adorable and rustic with bales of hay, wooden crates, etc… I am a sucker for marquee lights and I think the flowers out of the popcorn boxes are genius for centerpieces. There are so many…

A home tour with lovely vignettes…

With color inspiration from the 70s and a marriage of design styles, this home tour encompasses a lot of things I look for when featuring on my blog.

Sorry for being M.I.A. but been planning a Burlesque themed Bday Bash…

I have also spent entirely waaaaaaay too many hours searching online costume stores, going back & forth with myself on if I want to purchase from random sites, checking BBB on said sites to ensure authenticity and reading reviews only to buy my corset/tutu from a real lingerie company via Amazon. That free shipping gets…
