Etsy of the Week

So you don't want to spend too much on artwork...I totally understand. So what about this idea from My Tree House Treasures? Custom cut vinyl lettering is a fun way to add personality to any room in your home and they are so reasonably priced! Here are some of my favs...and she even does custom orders!

Love for Letter Your Legacy

Six months later, we are still receiving wedding gifts - But I love it! Last week, I was sent a gift from a good friend of ours. She must have heard me complaining of our lack of art for our house, because she sent me something from Letter Your Legacy. I had seen their stuff on another website, but actually forgot about them. OMG. It is gorgeous and I am so excited to hang it. I wish I could post it here, but then you would know our last name, so I posted some from their website.

It was right before I moved to Chicago that my mother found some cool shops in my new neighborhood, one of them became her favorite - P.O.S.H. They have since moved into a bigger shop on State - but it is still one of the coolest stores and still a must visit when my mother comes to town! I also love that they always seem to find neat vintage stuff from Chicago.

I ended up buying these cups and absolutely adore them.

They have seriously the coolest vintage dinnerware - look at these!

I get tired of framed pictures so bought this to spice up our photos.

I'm Back...

So for the last five months, I was done with the wedding planning, and on to newlywed bliss. But did not know what to do with my old blog - Chitown Bride. At first I thought maybe I was done with writing, but then realized - I couldn't just stop blogging. So here is my new blog - Chitown Wife (I know --how original!). No fears - if you want to relive anything from my wedding day (peacocks anyone?) - I will keep the other blog around (but probably no new posts).

This blog is definitely keeping with a theme of design, food and anything else I want to write about! So enjoy!
