A weekend through Instagram.


(row no. 1) Maya is tied up and a Saturday morning curb find; (row no.2) alligator warnings and cute friends; (row no. 3) Friend Toad and an eerie tower; (row no. 4) Where the Wild Things Are and Jesus Saves.

Unfortunately (or fortunately) I didn't have my phone on me for a lot of the fun times, but no Instagram can capture the mood you get from the sound of old records over French press coffee and delicious breakfasts and comfortable conversations with good pals.

Weekend adventuring.

In just a few hours, these crazy kids will be coming down to Charleston for the weekend. When C + D come to visit, we rarely have set plans in mind, but, yet, we always manage to have a fantastic time. Mostly because these peeps have a sense of adventure. I can't wait.

It's that time of year again, when I scramble through my closets and seek vintage' archives to come up with an assemblage of items that hopefully resembles some sort of costume. I've been a cougar and a German girl (not much of a stretch), and this year, I just want an excuse to wear the Zara dress that still has the tags on it.

I think I'm going to be a mod ghost.


Eh. It's a stretch, but so it goes. If anyone else has any cool costume ideas or plans, feel free to share!

So, my iPhone is about the greatest thing since sliced bread. Instagram is my absolute favorite, and I apologize to my Instagram followers for the amount of images I add (not really). Pictured: "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians" and Caesar at Sci-Fi night; Professor Maya and my new haircut; pumpkin chocolate chip pancakes and reflective pets; Mexican Cokes and sunglasses at the park. 

Not pictured: evening walk through Avondale and dinner with friends; the devouring of a Sweeteeth Sea is for Caramel bar; my new bronzey-gold flats (a wardrobe staple, as far as I am concerned); and my new nail polish obsession. These will probably all be future Instagram subjects, though.

An October weekend.

A weekend at home in Charleston! I can barely remember what that feels like. Here are some of the things I'm looking forward to, starting in just a few hours:

And besides that, not much else. I'm looking forward to sleeping in, lazy mornings on the couch, movie nights, and being at home, sweet home. 

My weekend will hopefully look a lot like this (even though Maya is now a lot bigger, she's still just as snuggly), plus a boyfriend, and a cat, and some good friends:

Treasure troves.

I've been on Etsy for a while, but am just now learning about all the fancy things you can do there. Making a treasury is a great way to group items you love can be a wish list or mood board, or anything, really. I've made my first treasuries today:

I'm still getting ideas for Treasury themes. If you're an avid Etsyer, is there a specific treasury you'd like to see? Is there a Treasury you've made that you're proud of, or one someone else made that you love? Share with me--I always need inspiration!

All over the internet.

I am all over the internet. Seriously. I love it. I am kind of flaky when it comes to tweeting and all that biz, but that doesn't mean I don't love it any less.

Here's where you can find me in Internetland:

Please feel free to share your Internet social networky names with me if you want to pal around on any of these mediums!

Save the Date: Lowcountry Artist Market

It's that time of year again! Next month is the Fall 2011 Lowcountry Artist Market. I'm so excited to be part of this event. There are so many talented craftspeople and vintage sellers in this town who are showcasing some amazing things. It's always a huge struggle not to buy everything in sight. To keep up with all the artist market happenings, follow the official Lowcountry Artist Market blog!

As for seek vintage, I'm so excited for fall. I've got some great coats and jackets, blouses to wear under winter layers, perfect Parisian berets in a few shades, and scarves to keep t. I'll be hunting like crazy over the next few weeks for unique pieces for the table.

If you're in Charleston, please stop by on Saturday, November 19. There's a great dressing room that the Music Farm set up, so come by, play dress-up, and maybe you'll find something that you'll have to take home with you. For those of you not in the area, keep checking seek vintage on Etsy. I'll be updating weekly with new pieces and accessories.

Mountains and apples and more.

The weekend was as lovely as I expected. Warm, beautiful days; chilly, cozy nights. Good food, family, long drives, piles of apples, a trip to Asheville, a stop at the French Broad River, outdoor cooking, and a pretty drive home.

Getting away.

Remember when I blogged nearly every day? Yeah, me neither. It's been ages. I'd really like to get this little blarg back to something that holds all my pleasant memories, and not just pages of pictures of clothes on a dress form (though there will surely still be those things too).

We've been traveling out of town so much over these past weeks. Some of my favorite people have gotten married. Six of them, actually. All to each other (In three different sets, not all together--what do you think we are? Some kind of hippies?).

At the last minute, we decided to join my family up at the mountain house. We haven't been since Fourth of July, and decided we were overdue for another trip. Plus, Waynesville has its adorable Apple Harvest Festival. If you've never been to a small mountain town during a festival--well, then you're missing out.

I've forgotten how to pack for weather like this, so I've thrown everything remotely seasonal into my suitcase. 37 degrees? I'm so ready.

On a final note, here is a song that totally gets me ready for the weekend:

Shop my closet.

I've been out of commission lately, due to the weddings of some of the most amazing people around (third wedding in five weeks is this weekend!), birthday brunches with girlfriends, autumn housewarming parties, thrifting expeditions, family dinners, and housekeeping. Unfortunately, I haven't had my camera with me at these events.

However, I did a serious closet clean-up. If you're interested, look below:

Anthopologie, J. Crew, Nanette Lepore, Lerario Beatriz, Ralph Lauren, Fumblin Foe, Penguin, Mooka Kinney, Ella Moss, and all sorts of goodies.

Pass it on!
