While Aaron has been researching fridges, window installation, and drills for our new home, I have been drooling over color schemes, mid-century furniture, and inspirational and low cost design ideas.

I have purchased the following frugal items for our new place mostly from Etsy:

For mine and Aaron's bedroom

For the livingroom, in a cute yellow frame

                                                Two throw pillows for Amelia's room

For Andrew's big kid room, a map chalkboard decal from Urban Outfitters

Jacob's Pottery Barn Teen surfboard shelves.  I saved big time by using craigslist.  His are white and sea green

American Pickers

 I think I have mentioned on here before that instant Netflix is the greatest invention EVER! It makes my world a million times brighter.
Currently I have fallen in love with the show American pickers. The show is phenomenal.
It follows around two dudes who have been friends since childhood while they attempt to score cool stuff. They go into the backwoods of America to find really cool vintage treasures to resell. It combines everything I love--vintage stuff, quirky people, and road trips. It's amazing!
