I don't think I have loved Summer this much as when I was a kid going to Summer camp. Besides the one rained out Art Fair, I have taken the Summer off from shows which has meant I actually have weekends free. The last couple weekends have been rainy which made me even happier I wasn't outside in a rain soaked tent. This weekend, I visited the Randolph Antique Market which is a monthly event in Chicago the last weekend of the year. I have found a few of the pieces in my apartment from there one at a time. I made a list of what I needed and brought a measuring tape. I only crossed one thing off my list but I am happy with my purchase. I purchased a matching set of end tables for the bed which are a pretty blue. In case you missed the post about a look inside my Chicago Apartment you can read it here.
I ordered a French Marble Bistro Table and it arrived yesterday. I was hesitant for the price point but now I am so happy I bought it. Expect to see it in an upcoming post. It is an authentic bistro table with iron legs and a marble top. They are still in stock here!
I have to agree with this article especially on finding places that have Aesop in the bathroom. I feel like it is a running joke with my friends in Paris. I recently purchased this soap from The Nordstrom Sale and it was a bit of a splurge but I love the smell!
My niece, Emma turns 5 in about a week and I am buying her this adorable French Cook Book for Kids. She has been begging to help in the kitchen and it is so hard to find activities that are safe and fun. I am really excited to make memories baking and cooking together.
My 5th pair of Blondo Boots arrived this week. It has me a little excited for Fall. Anyone else start to purchase Fall clothes or shoes?
