Well, kind of. Sure I didn’t have to go to “work” today, but I still had plenty of things to do. I’m not complaining though because going to Lucketts was on my to-do list. I might have had to pick up a certain someones birthday present. Shhh! Of course I won’t reveal that gift until after August 8th, but I did find a few great items.
First was this cool lampshade! It was in a clearance pile because it’s slightly dented on the front by the numbers, but I thought it was worthy enough to come home with me.
I also picked up this vintage bottle carrier for a steal. It will be perfectly practical down by our bar when we finish it.
Now, this piece is a little out of my comfort zone but something about it spoke to me. I was looking for an interesting side table to go by the couches in the man cave. It won’t stay in this spot but you get an idea of what I will use it for eventually. It was an old display stand in a store in Purceville, VA. For $10, it is a great statement piece and slightly industrial for the basement. I don’t know what it is about a price tag with $10 but I can’t resist! Maybe because it’s such a nice, round number.
On the way home, I stopped by a local farm to pick up some delicious produce.
The sweetest, old man was selling a bounty of vegetables and fruit. I picked up some ripe tomatoes, an avocado, some plums and peaches plus some summer squash. Yum! Running errands at Lucketts and a farm stand doesn’t really seem like a chore.
I have to introduce you to someone special. He is the reason today is technically my Saturday! On Friday, June 29th at 11:49 pm, Kyle Andrew Dovi was born! I am a nanny for his older siblings, Matthew and Ava. It certainly was an exciting, stormy and adventurous weekend you chose, Kyle!
Welcome to the world sweet boy! I can’t wait to watch you grow-up just like your brother and sister! Congratulations to the proud parents, Debbie and Damien Dovi!
