Wow! I can't believe it has almost been a month since my last post, and so much has happened since then! I have some very exciting news to share...I found out early last month that I will be returning to school in the fall to pursue my career in academia! I am very excited, although it will require a move away from my hometown so of course I will really miss all of my friends and family, but it is a move I am really looking forward to. The city I'm moving to is absolutely gorgeous - lots of wonderful little boutiques and shops, so I will still be able to create and shop, hopefully snagging some fun, vintage items along the way to share with all of you!
Speaking of snagging deals, I picked up a gorgeous vintage-looking chandelier at my all-time favourite store HomeSense; a store that, lately, I've been spending a lot of time at picking up all of the essentials before the move...linens, area rugs, kitchen/home accessories...and it's the best store to visit if you basically need anything and everything for your home, because it has a huge selection, things are always changing, and the prices are unmatched. And the great news - it was only $29.99!
I also picked up some vanilla-scented candles that fit perfectly in the chandelier itself, and I envision it over the bathtub. I'm going with a white, shabby-chic theme for the rooms and with garage sales having already begun here, I am already anticipating Saturday mornings!
I've also begun my Mother's Day shopping early this year. There's something about shopping for women - it's just too easy! My mum and I are so close that we know exactly what the other would want for a special occasion. So, I've been shopping here and put in an order a few weeks ago...I can't wait for it to get here!!
