The Nashville Flea Market

About a year ago, my little brother moved to Nashville – aka Music City. Greg and I both lived in Tennessee (about 30 minutes from Chattanooga and an hour from Knoxville) during college, and we loved it, but Nashville is just… Nashville! It’s laid back yet still busy and we’re quite smitten with it. We love Virginia, but if we had to move and could move anywhere, Nashville would be right up there on the list with Burbank, California. (Oh my…

CHARMING-YET-FUNCTIONAL SHOE STORAGE

For months and months, we had a major shoe storage problem at our house. No matter how neat and tidy we tried to be, the shoes always ended up by the back door or haphazardly thrown into a basket in the laundry room closet.

At least that’s how I see it in my head. So, just be patient with me and try to visualize…

THE GREAT RUG SEARCH OF 2012

Almost two years ago, I was at HomeGoods with my mom and stumbled on a rug that I immediately fell in love with at first sight… and, of course, immediately posted on Instagram: Even though I was head over heals for the 8×10 ikat beauty, I decided to pass it up and ended up buying another rug about 4 hooks down – which happened to end up on Craigslist about 6 months down the road, but that’s another story. A few…
