Two things I love…

February 23, 2010

~ Happy Tuesday!  ~

Today, I thought I’d join along with “Two Things I Love… around my home” hosted by Kassi over at BacWoods Fern.  After giving it some thought, I decided to show off these vintage curtains I scored at a local thrift store a few months back.  A solid cafe curtain for the top of the window and two panels for the lower window.  Vintage yellow and white gingham fabric with white rick-rak  and aqua thread.  Even has a little chicken scratch stitching on there!  In perfect condition and at the unbelievable price of a whopping $3.  I am as smitten with them today as I was when I first snatched them off the thrift store shelf!

Second, is this art print that my sweet husband bought me for Valentine’s Day (along with a few pieces of jewelry).  He bought it from the shop Volume 25 on Etsy.  If I had a few extra thousand dollars lying around and thought I could actually cram all six of us in a camper that size, I would sooooo have one all spruced up just like the one in the drawing. Aqua and pretty… but I don’t and I can’t (not without everyone breathing down each others’ neck!) so for now, this will have to do!  I love this print and the message it reminds me of.  Thanks Babe!

Anyone else want to join in on the fun?  What two things do you love around your home?  Jump on over to Kassi’s blog and link up!

Here are a few pics from our gorgeous sunny weather this past weekend.

It’s a wonder that I ever get anything accomplished around here with all the kissing and snuggling this kid inspires… seriously, could he be any cuter?!

Sure wish it was this beautiful right now!

~How’s the weather where you are today?~

    I love that print, and your curtains are beautiful. Thrift/antique finds are so awesome.
    And that last picture, of your baby, *swoon*! If I weren’t already pregnant I’d have to go get myself pregnant. ;) Babies are so wonderful!

    I am discovering that we have lots in common…I’ve been a fan of Vol. 25’s artwork on etsy for a couple of years now. And I too love white milk glass…although what I really collect is white ironstone. And also vintage tablecloths. am loving exploring your blog. :-)

    wonderful Vday gift! weather here is starting to warm up… but it’s always unpredictable. I’m psyched for Spring though.
