Strawberry Pin

A freshly picked pin straight from the ripe fields of the local thrift store...on William Morris' Strawberry Thief, naturally.

Strawberry Mug

I recently found this cheery mug at the local thrift store for $2. More strawberry kitchen goodness!

Strawberry Shirts Forever

As per June tradition, the strawberries outside are flowering and I'm working on various strawberry themed creative projects. Here's a dress from Joe Fresh I found at a thrift store, shown partially deconstructed. I already own it in blue, so I decided to turn this pink version into a shirt. It will likely be a peplum crop top with puffy sleeves. I wish I knew the name of the surface pattern designer, as it is the fabric I love. It's like a fusion of my Strawberry Blonde and Splashy in Watermelon! Thank you, anonymous creative!

Historic German House

Dancing in a lofty, inspiring historic building with a great floor and clean bathrooms (featuring an abundant paper product supply) always makes a dance weekend better. I recently spent Stompology weekend at The Historic German House in Rochester, NY, and it measured up. 
Shortly after arriving I heard a few ladies joyously squealing about the bathroom stalls actually having functional locks. If that ruckus combined the smell of newly varnished floor wasn't enough, I looked up and saw this multilayered textural hint that renovations were recently (beautifully) done.
Yes please to this tin tile ceiling and curly chandelier
Balcony seats and arch windows
Marble and hexagon
Complete with a sky blue tufted velvet bathroom settee!

Victorian Mansion

Last weekend I had the delight of staying in this Airbnb in Rochester, NY. I highly recommend! It is charming, clean, convenient, inspiring, and the hosts are superb communicators. Take a peek inside these historic walls.
 The d├ęcor was an eclectic vintage enthusiast's dream.
The black and white checkerboard bathroom and claw foot tub are stunning!
The kitchen was my favourite part--it was actually below the rest of the unit, via a winding servant staircase. I enjoyed that it was part of the unit but separate enough to be a space to retreat to when a couple of us were upstairs sleeping and the rest of us didn't want to disturb.
 Minty counter and more checkerboard tile!
I'm a fan of the fan light, and these tiny antique details.
A resident kitty made an appearance on the back deck.
 The kitchen windows were open a crack all weekend so the whole room smelled like lilacs and magnolias.
Such a grand porch so charmingly nestled in greenery!
A few of the architectural sites from a stroll around...
Staying in this lovely home made the weekend even more enjoyable!
