Oh my, oh my…the vintage quilt gods shined there lovely little faces my way this weekend! I hit up the City Wide Garage sale on Saturday. It’s an event that comes to Austin every few months or so. I love it but sometimes it can be hit or miss, but this weekend it was a total hit!


These folks with the linens piled sky high are my absolute favorite vendors! They always have about 15 tables stacked with vintage shirts, chenille blankets, aprons, napkins, table cloths, pillow cases, and quilts.

This time they had a table labeled “old quilts”. The old quilts table was $9!!! NINE DOLLARS! ANNND, on Sunday each table is marked half price. OMG. I wish I would have been able to go on Sunday…

This is the back of the quilt above. Perfect, right? I was able to get two (TWO!) cute, eclectic quilts. They are going to make the most adorable picnic blankets. Seriously, it’s pretty ridiculous how excited I get about blankets.

There’s not much rhyme or reason to this little lovely, but the back (below) is so sweet and pretty.

I love to look at the eclectic mix of fabric and pick out my favorites.

This cat with red shoes cracks me up. I think the person who made this blanket just used left over fabric and I like to imagine that they made themselves a killer button-up shirt with this kitty print. Hehe.

I’m excited to enjoy my backyard with these this summer! It’ll be a perfect date with this little lady.

Happy Monday!

In our hope chest, we share products that complement our home aesthetic or make us excited about the directions of new design.



I live with Kyle, my husband, in Kansas City, Mo. We have a dog, Oats, and a cat, Logan.

I am a development professional who specializes in museums and the performing arts. I write grants, fundraise, and assist with marketing in the form of donor communications. My academic background is in history and museum science, focusing on the presentation and interpretation of Africa in American museums.

As a freelancer, I work with clients in need of websites, Wordpress upgrades, and FileMaker Pro database solutions.


Hi! I live in a small two bedroom home in Austin, Texas. I believe in vintage, re-purposing, recycling, and making my home comfortable for us and everyone that visits. After grad school, I developed a love for design and giving old furniture a new life. Hope I can take you all along on my journey to rid my house of the "college days" furniture (or at least re-purpose it)! Welcome, and I hope you stay a while!
