ETSY FAVORITE: Leslie Freeman Designs

I have always loved Etsy, but now that I am planning a wedding it has just become a staple site for me! So of course I am finding all sorts of wonderful shops, designers, craftsman, and ideas! Here is one site I found recently that I just love, Leslie Freeman Designs. I just her homemade ceramics, and I feel like these pieces would be such a great conversation piece and a wonderful quality to piece to have in any home! Here are some of my favorites…

HOME-SPIRATION: Antler Decor

So with a freezer full of deer meat and a boyfriend who looks great in camo, I have come to realize that hunting will always be a part of my life. Surprisingly I am okay with this, partly because J.Crew just came out with some adorable camo items! But now that it is almost deer season I am really trying to score some amazing antlers! I found such great home-spiration photos for rustic chic looks involving antlers! Here are some of my favorites…

REINCARNATION: Anthropologie Tablewares

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

So I, like everyone else in the world, am OBSESSED with Anthropologie tableware. Over the years I have slowly purchased bowls, plates, and mugs from Anthropolgie from their glorious sale shelves. My theory is that if I slowly collect them, my kitchen will one day be nothing but mixed matched and beautiful Anthropolgie tableware. I have recently wanted to speed up this process so I have tried to find less expensive but just as unique routes for tableware! One of the greatest places to look is ETSY! There are TONS of ceramic and pottery shops that have inexpensive, unique, and beautiful pieces! Another option is to look at department store websites… and buy cool plates or unique mugs as singles and not as place settings so you still get that mixed match Anthropologie feel! Here are a few of my favorites for you to check out!…

This is a beautiful bowl by Owl Creek Ceramics’ Etsy shop! Only $15 plus shipping… and they come in a million different colors

SHOPPING TRIP: Mexco, Uptown Dallas

I love exploring Dallas and all the BEAUTIFUL home goods stores that they have! While having brunch in uptown I stopped in Mecox, an interior decorating store full of ALL the things I would want for my home. Its the kind of place that you could go and decorate your whole home or just find a few quirky pieces to make your house unique.

I found out that there are several locations of Mecox stores! I visited the Dallas one but there are other retail locations in Chicago, NYC, South Hampton and East Hampton, LA, Houston, and Palm Beach.
