bird pineapple on it – I’m calling it guys – pineapples are now trending. As I mentioned before – I caught the ‘Pineapples-are-so-cute-Everything-I-buy-should-be-pinapple-related’ disease in this post. Check out these pineapple pins decor that is confirming the trend.
I really love those Brass Pineapples – but looking at them on Etsy, they are a little pricy, ranging from $90 – 189! But I found this cute trivet for $13

Brimfield was awesome – sun’s out
guns antiques out! This year my Mom, Sister and broski-in-law took on the Brimfield traditions…
1. Drive to Brimfield and eat McDonalds, (its what the antiques want).
2. Go to parking lot – give the parking guy with the amazing pony tail $5 – treat your Mom to parking because you’re a baller and actually have $5 in your wallet.
3. Start at the white tent that always has those purple glass bottles
4. Grab a lemonade and a huge-ass cookie when you’re feeling cranky towards the center of the fields.
5. Buy the coolest stuff you can find!
6. Then on the way home, drive to small grocery store and buy their amazing cupcakes and eat them like you’ve never seen food before (although this year we missed out on the cupcakes – we will just have to eat more in July)!!

I have been wanting to paint my dining room since I moved into my apartment two years ago. But it always seemed like ugh…. I don’t have the time or energy to tackle such a project. But with a recent surge of adrenaline and inspiration, it was time to get painting!
With my BF’s blessing I chose to paint the walls, ‘Light French Gray,’ how fancy. I moved all the bric-a-brac all over the apartment and got to it…
First day was straight up painting french gray. A few days later was the stencil project…I went onto Cutting Edge Stencils and I was really digging this stencil:
But then I watched this tutorial with my favorite girl, Sherry Petersik, and took her suggestion of going with a more ‘organic’ shape. And what is not more organic than a peacock feather?
When it was delivered I was thinking “oooh I’ll do the entire room” but after some discussions with my Mom and my BF’s utter objection (gotta compromise!) to the entire room being covered in peacock feathers, I went with just an accent wall. I used Martha Stewart Stencil adhesive and painters tape to help keep the stencil flat on the wall, in some smaller parts the paint started to dry on the feather tips making it a little chunky looking but nothing too bad. The entire process for one wall took about 5 hours. Because of those smaller feather tips I wasn’t using a roller, I used a sponge tip brush. Here’s the stenciling my process:
I love the way it turned out! Exactly what that room was missing. Especially since its the wall you see while sitting in the living room, I’m just madly in love with that damn wall now! Overall it was a fun process – but definitely block off a chunk of time and maybe have some wine. Now I just have to put everything back together…
Target has done it again. It has added more items to its stock that will make me forget I went into the store for conditioner and end up spending $100 on things that I need…
