My weekend jaunt to Victoria

Last weekend I took a quick jaunt to Victoria to see friends. What a perfect weekend! You can't beat a sunny, warm September weekend.

I did manage to get some thrifting in thanks to my favourite friend Will. My bestest friend ever! First off was Value Village. Unfortunately I didn't find anything.

Next we went to Capital Iron - love this store! They have so many great home decor items! This is where we dropped some cash... Belated birthday gift from Will. Yay for me!

I picked up these mugs. I really don't 'need' mugs but my 2 favourite colours right now are turquoise and orange. They are a super fun colour combo! These were $5 each. Extravagant!

My other purchases from Capital Iron included some owl pieces. Love owls! We picked up a brass doorstop for $10 then 2 brass wall hangers for $15/each. I might hang the owl wall hangers on my wall with my frames and mirrors.

We then dropped by the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul thrift store. I found a few tempting items, including Pyrex mugs, but ended up leaving empty handed.

Project Update

This weekend I have to catch up on some updates - my stool, frames, etc. Then I can do some serious sewing! I picked up some new hinges for my stool update.

I'll tweek the paint this weekend and add varathane then screw in the hinges.

I'm loving the turquoise and orange fabric. I think I'm going to use turquoise as an accent on other pieces in my living room.

I'm also hoping to finish up the below frames.

This weekend is full of fun things... Tomorrow is the book signing for Design*Sponge at Home. Can't wait!
