Craigslist Crawl... Atlanta

 This weekend by accident, I did a Craigslist search in the Atlanta area.  Let me tell you... ATL is where it's at!  It didn't take me long to figure out I was not searching in the Philly area.  My thoughts went something like this, "Faux bamboo dining set, $500, whuuuuut!?!?!  Where in the world?"

At the top left corner of the page clearly written, CL > atlanta , thus my heart broke.  However, there is good in everything, right (just pretend)?  I bring you a new series...

Craigslist Crawl

Of course, we'll be starting with Atlanta.  After all, I didn't do all that work for nothing. Sorry for the blurred images.  That's Craig's fault.

Sometimes it's hard to have vision.  Some of you may even think what I posted from the Atlanta Craigslist Crawl is just plain ugly.  And to you I say, "Blasphemy!"  Okay, okay, my Southern roots are getting the best of me. 

Here's how Windsor Smith decorated with faux bamboo.  This is my favorite dining room set-up.

Little Peanut... Gender Neutral Baby Shower

Bring on the A-game, because this is going to be tricky!  My friend is preggers, and I'm helping her with all the ins and outs of decorating.  Baby Shower included. For all you pushing 30 folks (or 40, it's the new 30, right?), you should know that not finding out the sex of your baby is the new fad.

In my best Barney Stinson voice, "Challenge accepted!"

I headed over to Pinterest for some inspiration, and even started a board for my friend's shower.  You can see more of it here.  Think orange, teal, and turquoise. 

So I went to Michael's, and bought all of this...

I am overall pleased with the final results.  

The shower is not until June, but you can expect the whole process to be documented.  The tinted mason jars I scored over a year ago from the Phila Flea Market will most definitely come in handy.

Save the Date... Clover Market

Ahhh... the best time of the year!  I love everything about spring!  The weather, the pretty flowers and the awesome flea markets!!  Admittedly, the post is primarily a reminder for myself, but I thought you would be interested in marking your calendar too.  You can read about our adventure last year at Clover Market here.

We had a great time last year at Clover Market.  I did some shopping with Holly from West Pair Avenue.  Two of our favorite local artisans were there too, Laura from Modern Bird Jewelry and Jahje from Baby Jives.  We actually blogged about Jahje's awesome bird mobiles here

Here are a few pics from last year's Clover Market... 

Clover Market is one of the best markets around the Philadelphia area for sure!  The best news is that they are held on Sundays and don't compete with the Saturday Phila Flea Markets.  You can visit Clover's Market's site to take a peek at their schedule.
