Tomorrow night I'm flying back to New England for a 12 day visit. I'm really, really excited! Lots and lots of family time, of course!! And then the normal grandmother's house rummaging will be in order. There's small town antique stores to be visited. And the part I'm most excited about is taking photos of 1385 things with my grandmother's dress form, in a beautiful space that belongs to our family.

Two stories of perfectly crumbling rooms. A little sneak peak for now - I'll share so much more soon!
But, right now - there's a lot of things heavily marked down in my Big Cartel shop, anything purchased before Friday 2/22 at 5:00 PM (west coast time) will get shipped before I go! There's more treasures waiting to be found, so take some of the other things off my hands!!

oh, gosh! noo - it's not her house! these photos are from the top two floors of a building that used to be my mom's parents. (it's not my mom's) the ground level are store fronts but the top half of it hasn't been occupied for over 50 years!

Though I could make some version of the rose water myself, the bottle may make it very well worth the 28 dollars. That label, I heart!

Gosh, those walls are just the perfect color. I want to steal a little chip and get a bucket mixed up at the hardware store!
