More shelves and a lengthy post! 🤦🏽♀️🤷🏽♀️ these are the 2nd set of shelves i put up a few months ago. the two paintings you see are pieces i had commissioned of my 2 pups that passed away last year. joey, who was 18 when he passed, and nala, who passed just before her 2nd birthday due to a heart condition she was born with. i still think about them often so it's a great way to keep their memory alive as this was their home too!
slowly but surely, i'm getting sections of the house completed! it's a constant battle of 'order everything online and fill the house up quickly -or- be patient, and slowly fill the house with the awesome things i've taken time to find at antique shops.
needless to say, i'm choosing the 'slowly fill up your house with antiques route'. nothing feels "forced", and i dont feel like i'm trying to keep up with a trend that's only going to last 6 months. it just feels right. so in the age of buying everything online in 2.5 seconds, while sharing everything online every 2.5 seconds, and comparing yourself or your space with everything you see online every 2.5 seconds, i'm taking it easy.
i'm enjoying my long drives to the shops, taking my time to look through each booth, and talking to the shop owners about certain pieces or the other stores in the area and why i should also visit those.
unfortunately, everything can't always come from antique shops. so i do have my larger furniture pieces like couches on order and they will be in this week!!
Today @danielpalazzo and i had the pleasure of getting in early for a tour of @thearcherresidences in beacon hill. this was by far my favorite tour i’ve been on, not only because of these stunning finished, but because i used to have my college classes in this building!
