~~I won a pair of tickets to the Philadelphia Home Show through Dana at Circadee (thanks Dana!). I'm so excited and now I need to decide when I'm going to attend. I found Dana's blog this past summer and realized that we don't live very far from each other (love local connections).
Dana has picked up some really great vintage pieces and has really been on a roll with all of the projects she's been completing. Check out Dana's recent project in her Cape May bungalow that her and her boyfriend, Ryan, completed. A reclaimed wood pallet backsplash...
I love it and you must go over and see the before and after. They did a really great job.
~~Next up, a new favorite book that I haven't even gotten half way through yet but love it. It's that fourth book down from the top, Downtown Chic by Cortney and Robert Novogratz. (think I have enough reading to catch up on?)

Here is one of my favorite images from the book:

Casually elegant. I feel like they do casual really really well and always so good looking too, and probably because they have 7 kids. What I really take away about their style is their appreciation for very well made pieces and mixing those in with flea market finds and other vintage items. They also know how to gut, rehab, and make gorgeous and the book tells all about that. This book was a surprise gift from my hubby for Christmas and I'm so happy he got this one for me!
~~This past weekend I got a chance to check out a coffee shop I've always wanted to try, One Shot Coffee. A friend and I went for lunch and it was much brighter than this photo below. Both the coffee (Stumptown) and the food were awesome - highly recommend if you're ever down in Northern Liberties. Stumptown originates from Portland, Oregon (lucky you Jenn!).
