No joke, I’ve been looking for old globes at thrift stores and flea markets for over two years. Finally, my dad was getting rid of one from his old office and I happily accepted it into my home.
Then it took me over a year to find a second, and I snagged it without hesitation because it was my dream globe. Size, price, and coloring – just what I wanted. Then I found 3 more last weekend and now I have a (temporary because I’ve been asked to paint a couple for friends) collection.
I like the globes so so much that I redecorated my bedroom around them.
Tomorrow starts the crazy-busy-work-weekend for me. Two days of Porter Flea and one full day of a big mural project. Can’t wait to show you pics of it all when I’m done. For now, I’m taking some deep breaths and powering through until Sunday night when I can finally sit down and relax! It’ll be a crazy few days doing work I absolutely love!
Tomorrow morning I’m hitting the road with my mom and one of my little sisters to good ol’ New Orleans! This is how cool my mom is: about a year ago (maybe?) I mentioned that I have really been wanting to visit New Orleans. I haven’t been since I was old enough to remember anything about it, so I decided that it was the next place I wanted to explore. So my mama, in true mama-fashion said, “hey, do you want to go to New Orleans with me?” Yeah. Yeah I do. She turns 50 this year and it’s my parents’ 30th wedding anniversary, so we’ve declared 2013 her Party Year. Lucky me, because I get in on some of her parties!
So in honor of my upcoming trip to New Orleans, I’m having a huge Buffalo Mae sale. 40% off any purchase of $20 or more. Use the code NEWORLEANSORBUST for your discount. Happy shopping friends!
When I was a girl, my grandparents had a Holly Hobbie board game that was my mama’s when she was younger. I loved that game. But not to play. I just flipped through the cards and admired their cuteness.
Then I grew up and my cuteness-admiring got so out of control that I started a shop called Buffalo Mae. All we do is sell cute. And when I am out buying things for my shop, I also occasionally find things I need to keep. Like anything Holly Hobbie related. I’ve started a collection. The first piece was a gift from my friend Lillian. The rest, Lillian and I have discovered on our thrifting adventures.
I’m going to let this book speak for itself.
Petunia is a cutie, isn’t she?! I just love this book. The colors are so bright and retro.
This book is in my shop here.
Once upon a time, I was digging through a 100 degree barn in the middle of summer and stumbled upon a box filled with old mail and dead spiders. I picked around the spiders and found some really great things, like all these vintage valentines.
Happy Valentines Day, my sweet friends! Hope your day is dreamy.
