What I Bought

I'm having a pretty low-key weekend over here. For the first time in a month, I'm NOT leaving Austin city limits this weekend. Henry went on a camp out with some of the guys/youth from church, and I'm primarily hanging out at home (aside from trips to Sprouts, the gym, and Hobby Lobby). It feels good to be at home.

After sharing my photos from Antique Week, someone asked what I actually bought. Then I realized none of the things I bought were pictured, so I thought I'd come back and share.

The first thing I knew I wanted to buy was this blue jar. My other blue mason jar was feeling lonely. Both jars were purchased from my niece

My second purchase was this wooden tray, which I'm using as a centerpiece on my dining room table. The candles and flowers on top of the tray came from Hobby Lobby today. I also bought another stick of silk flowers and some little plastic green apples so I can switch things out later.

And though I didn't buy any tiny stools, I did come home with two large red ones.

I'm happy with my purchases (although I secretly, or perhaps not so secretly, wish that mini schnauzer puppy were here keeping me company right now). 

P.S. Antique Week is a biannual event! I think the next show will be in late September or October.

I LOVE the mason jars! I actually have a tumblr blog all about maine & mason jars!! Lots of fun inspiration photos if you're interested.

I want a set of those same stools for my future kitchen....only I want to paint them aqua. Very cute! Looks like you had a great time at Antique Week

ommmg! Love the jars! I have a large collection of glass jars I have found at thrift stores and antique shops. Sometimes I pick them up and just carry them around, because the last thing I need is another glass jar! lol.

@Charity--I'm glad you've repented and have returned to my blog! Your comment made me laugh!

@Jessica--Sometimes I take pictures of things I want to buy, so I can look at it when I want to but 1) it doesn't clutter up my apartment and 2) I don't spend any money on things I don't need! =)
