I bought a house!

See! I told y'all I bought a house. Probably not what you'd expect, but when I saw this little gem in the thrift store I knew I had to have it. As you know I am redecorating my living room and I am on the hunt for a few specific items (which is one of my no no rules of thrifting). Anyway, while I was jaunting down the aisles I saw it and grabbed it! It was soooo inexpensive. 

Ive seen these houses here and there and thought they were always a fun addition to a room. Most people who have them in their spaces are more of the shabby chic type space dwellers. Wont be none of that here, but it will find a great place to reside in the condo. 

It is a little dusty so cleanup is next, although I did attempt to clean it. The top finial is missing on the left front, hopefully I can replace it very inexpensively. 

I was thinking this might be a bird cage, but I didn't see a perch bar, so I don't think it is. The top opens up, which is nice. I guess I can put stuff it in. Ive seen a larger one at an event I went to and there were candles in the inside. Gave a very pleasant glow to the space. 

Does anyone else have a little house in the home?

Friday Favorites

Its Friday! This weekend is extra good because it is Memorial Weekend, which means many of you will have an extra weekend day!
Anyway. I am still in progress with my living room (I out the bedroom on temporary pause. Well honestly, I just need to find and buy the perfect bed).

- I recently found out where to buy these candles online, but I still need to smell them in person.

- When I saw this room, with these plates, I thought it was gaudy and tacky. Now? I want.

- Five years ago I fell in love with this lamp. Its great to know its available here in my favorite finish.
  If you like that lamp also try this lamp, this one, or this one.

-Speaking of lamps, this lamp is too expensive not to come with a shade, but I still like it tho.

-Father's Day is coming up. I am writing a post, but I think you should take a look at these in the meantime.

And since you will be looking something great for him, take a look at my Women's Fashion board on Pinterest, I am sure there is something there you will like as well.

Well. I am off to the studio to do some much needed cleaning for next week.

Have a great weekend everyone!
