Our little trip to Chicago was short and sweet, and since our return, it feels like our peaceful summer has come to an abrupt halt! This week has been insanely busy, and I don't think I'll be catching my breath until the middle of next week - when school begins. I really missed blogging the last few days, but took a very necessary break. I am super excited about sharing my teacup collection with you next week, and hopefully a few reader collections will soon be appearing in my inbox!
Now, about my stolen house tour...
I ran across Jerusalem's sweet blog a while back, and have been wanting to share the house tour that she prepared for Cookie - with you all. So, for those of you who follow my little life or Cookie's nesting blog - I apologize for the house tour repeat, but it is SO worth sharing with the rest of you! I would encourage you all to check out Jerusalem's blog and etsy shop.
I love how she uses vintage maps throughout her home, and did you notice the hangers she used to display art, in the photo on the right?!
There are five things I would like to point out from this particular photo - the dress, the vintage hankies on the lampshade, the pink luggage rack, the vintage typewriter, and the map. Great finds, Jerusalem!
Don't you love the banner on the fireplace? You can purchase similar items from her etsy shop.
I love the red door against the delicious wall color. It reminds me of this.
LOVE the globes and hot air balloon display!
I really like the map, candlesticks, lamp, window treatment, and bench.
Hooray for mismatched chairs!
I want that cute "BAKE" sign hanging in the window.
Great use of color! I'm adoring the display on the right. So pickin' cute!
It feels like there is a lot of love in this post, but I LOVE layers of bedding and pillows. Her master bedroom looks so inviting.
Look at her boys' room! The window treatments are fabulous, along with more layered bedding, and great pendants. This is a boys' room I will definitely keep on file! Click here to see the original tour.
