Happy Friday! First, I just want to remind everyone we will be closing our Etsy shop later today at around 5:30 and won't be reopening until August 16th!

Second, don't forget to enter out giveaway for one of our Annabel Tanks. Giveaway ends Sunday! (You can add entries through the day Sunday and we will announce the winner Sunday night).

Okay, and now on to my post:

One of the things that I have really loved about Etsy is that is brings back into play the old-fashioned bartering system. Jon thinks it is quite hilarious, but I LOVE it. (Actually, seeing how we haven't had to buy anything for Lillie in quite some time - he loves it too!) For the most part I only do trades for things for Lillie but a few weeks ago I saw these pillows at Lacey In The Sky and couldn't resist! She was willing to do a trade and these arrived yesterday! How cute are they? The boy is her standard silhouette, but then I sent her a silhouette of Lillie and she did that for me as well.

Here they are in our family room: (I still want to paint the walls a dark brownish grey in here and I REALLY want to replace the furry pillows behind the new silhouette ones, but they are all I have lying around right now - I really want to go with a burlap pillow... or at least I think, anyway!)

Here is what the chairs looked like with my VERY old pillows! And I didn't have matching ones which drove me crazy but I hadn't had time to make new ones.

After getting those, I ended up playing around in my dining room as well. I moved the moss balls from my mantel and decided to try them in my dough bowl.
I got our 4 side chairs in our dining room for 6 dollars a piece - how gross were they? Haha! Yes, that is GREEN FELT on the seats. I painted them Ashley Grey and recovered the seats with our old draperies from our last house.

Some cute little hang tags from Paper Eclectiques

Whoops - Jon tossed the bread over to me the other night when we were eating dinner and it hit the chandelier. I totally forgot to straighten the candles back out until looking at this photo - haha!

We have several new things to that I plan on showing you all soon. Here is a sneak peak at a dress my mom made for Lillie and that she may be making for the shop in the fall! It is soooo cute and I can't wait to take more pics to show you all. Jamie also just finished the cutest new clutch - definitely my new favorite and a completely different look than the other ones. As soon as she sends me pictures of it I will show you!
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
