Pinterest in Real Life

     After a break for my little brother’s birthday yesterday, the Ohio visit chronicles will continue! While we on our vacation, we headed up to the little town of Powell, Ohio for one of our favorite hobbies: Antiquing! And I really mean ‘one of our’ favorite hobbies..he is a Renaissance Man after all :) Not only do I love hunting down cool furniture & decorations, I also love Pinterest. If you haven’t checked out this online catalog, go do so & let the inspiration begin! When you are done being inspired, come back & finish reading this!! As we walked along the huge antique mall, I snapped pictures of the things I felt sure I couldn’t live without. Marcus was able to use brainwashing reason to convince me otherwise time after time, but I am sure I left pieces of my heart right there with those treasures. Thankfully, with those pictures, I am able to ‘pin’ some of my finds right here on my ‘lil blog! Please do excuse the deplorable exposure/composition/focus of these photo’s. I couldn’t be bothered ;)

I wanted to take this vanity home sooo badly!

And this frame made me think of my sister-in-law and her sweet red, black & white living room. What do you think, Emily? Should I have brought it home for you?

With the best forearms. Amen.

There ya go. My real live Pinterest. Now, who wants to go antiquing with me? I know some pretty sweet spots in Hampton Roads & Marcus can’t use the ‘ole “How are we supposed to get that from Columbus, Oh to Chesapeake, Va in a Saturn” excuse!
