{ Finders Keepers Vintage Market HIGHLIGHTS! }

Ahhhh you guys what an amazing way to end the weekend!!! We decided to head out to Chelsea, MI on Sunday for some junkin, pickin' & of course food!!! We've been to many vintage markets in different areas & this one was definitely one of our favs!! Everything from the parking, building, grounds, & food were amazing not to mention the BEST part- treasures galore hahaa! I'll be blogging what we got from there soon, but wanted to take today to show you guys some of the grounds, goodies & awesome vendors!! We loved how organized everything was, the barns were awesome, the easy access, the items being sold & the people were great!!!! Come take a peek at some of our little trip junkin!!
 



Sometimes I think this one likes junkin more than I do haha! We loves his vintage coolers, license plates & beer mirrors!


I wish I would have got a good shot of all the barns with the names on them...they were so fun!! These pop up truck boutiques are the cutest things ever & always grab my attention haha.




One of the nicest Vendors I've ever met! She was the last booth in the "livestock" barn & I had to stop. Her booth was the least filled but something told me to stop in & boy am I glad we did!!! Sometimes it's the ones you think that aren't for you that actually have the BEST items. Her booth was the one & only one I bought from. ** I'll be doing a whole blog post on the item, but if you want a sneak peek head to my Instagram!!


Markie had to have his coffee & it was soo good, I even had a sip! I mean look at this little vintage rustic coffee camper?! ADORABLE!!



So many treasures...I'm glad we had a set amount of cash on us hahah..I wanted everything is this booth for my favorite porch decor season- 4th of July!!





I hope you guys liked this little peek into our weekend!! I wanted to vlog for you guys but honestly it was sooo busy, we were enjoying each other & I have a huge spider bite on my face..hence the hat hahahaha! Have you ever been to the Finders Keepers Vintage Market ??

Happy Wednesday, pals!

{ DIY Rustic Coffee Cabinet from an Old Jewelry Chest }

Hey lovely pals!!! I hope your Tuesday & week are going well. Ours has been busyyyyy, just the way we like it, well at least most of the time. So, this past weekend we went junkin & I also completed a little DIY that I wanted to share with you guys..So I have been sick for two weeks with stomach issues, & my other chronic stuff..One of the things that always makes me feel better is doing a fun little thrifty DIY or project. Lately I noticed I haven't been doing many of those, so when I spotted this cute little chest/cabinet in my gram's shed I knew I could make it super cute & functional for us!! Me, her & my sister had been in there looking for something the other night while it was beautiful out and of course my eye spotted this piece & my gram said take it- YAY!!! See what I mean when I say I come from a long line of pickers & diy'ers..I got it from my gram & mom for sure, oh & my late papa who was an artist! Anyways, I  knocked the feet off of the bottom & gave it some fresh white paint, and a clean & bam- sooooo cute!! Keep reading below for more information on this gem....




It was a yucky sticky yellow color..I gave it a nice wash inside & out with some warm water & then 2 coats of basic white acrylic paint. I made sure to only hit the areas that were distressed a bit so the old charm came through on the edges, knobs etc.. Speaking of the knobs..I just kept them & added a bit of black paint & then distressed them a bit. The black pulled from our kitchen cabinets & it added that much more charm to this little guy.



You guys know I'm not a coffee drinker but I do LOVE my vanilla spice chai tea haha. So, the reason I wanted to add this charming little cabinet is not only because I was craving a DIY but because the "tray coffee station" just wasn't working for us anymore..It was to cluttered, Mark hated the canister for the K-cups & I needed a change so this came just in time. I love the wood charm, clean but still cozy cottage look.



I kept the inside super simple with some of our favorite coffee cups, 3 mini canisters filled with sugar, cinnamon etc... The K-cups are now easy for Mr. Markie to access without having ours mixed up hahah..men.!!  

Side Note: You can see our last coffee station HERE





So what do you guys think about this new little thrifty coffee cabinet? Do you have a little hot beverage or coffee station in your home? 


Happy Tuesday!!

{ Mini Summer Cottage Home Tour }

Happy Tuesday, pals!! I hope your Mother's Day weekend was wonderful for you in every way despite your circumstances...I wanted to start this week fresh with a mini Home Tour & basically just a recap of our spring/ summer home decor so far. You see I'm kind of in a jumbled decor mess because our "spring" weather was more winter & now Michigan has decided to jump right into summer with a few days reverting to spring with mass amounts of rain...WHAT?! See what  I mean ahaha, so I'm just doing what I want with decor at this point since the seasons & months are all mixed up. Today I wanted to share when I'm at this our cozy summery  decor etc.. I'll be doing a whole ligher switch up once I can depend on the weather staying warm . Anyways come see this mini spring/summer home tour below...

  

W e l c o m e! Thanks for popping in for this little tour! 
This year I wanted a more garden greenhouse look with lots of mixed in neutral textures & garden essentials. The poor the chippier the better right?! 
*See our spring front door post HERE

I added terracotta pots in both our upper living room & dining room. It made such a warm garden feel & it brightened up the space with some natural color!! You can get these pots just about everywhere & for super cheap.


I mentioned via my Instagram that I changed out this fireplace mantel decor out 3 times in around 4 days..if you scroll through you will see a few different looks..again with the vintage items & terracotta pots..super spring/summer & also super simple.
*Full Post HERE



Spring/Summer centerpiece HERE



This summer tablescape is one of my most favorite tablescapes since blogging. The textures, different greenery, etc.. all scream Paige style haha.





This hutch will be getting a new spring look soon, so be sure to check back!! I think it's finally time this ole girl gets a spruce up hahah! *More on this look HERE


*You can read more on how we style our side tables for spring HERE. I hope you guys liked this little home tour. I know it was super short, but it's full of cozy warm touches. I hope you gathered some inspiration too. Thanks again for stopping by our home.

{ Thrifty Cottage Style Garden Greenhouse Centerpiece! }

Heyyy pals & welcome back to the blog!! Me blogging on Saturday...yup it's true haha! I wanted to pop on here & quickly share our summer greenhouse garden centerpiece for you guys! I'm not hosting Mother's Day, but if you are this would be the most simplest centerpiece EVER & super festive + fresh! I got the inspiration from my grams where I got these huge vintage terracotta pots & our yard actually...even though it's still not done I wanted to bring the outdoors in, but in typical " Paige" style...You guys have heard me talk about this many of times before but I'm not a green thumb so I use mostly faux greenery with the exception of a few...I had this industrial two tray stand from Target & decided to fill it with greenery, pots & add come vintage junkin' finds the side of it on the dining room table. See I told you literally the easiest centerpiece ever!! You could use any stand you want or have, grab some Dollar Store terracotta pots, flowers & greenery & voila complete!!! Come see more below...



So, while I was at my grams picking in her potting shed, I also got that little orange stool that desperately needs to be painted..I'll be sharing that soon too. Loving how this little dining area of ours in coming into what I had planned for this summer. I was going to switch out that 1940's chandy we got from a 1930's B &B but I see how popular it is now as I've seen many of you implement it in your homes..which makes me so thrilled!!


Our dining room gets so much light & breeze through it..I can't wait to show you the new cottage doors once they're installed. I love this one in the back because it's over 40 years old, but unfortunately it just doesn't work for what we need anymore. I will be sharing the transformation soon!!




I've been meaning to ask this question for quite sometime now..so since we're white washing the whole upstairs..do you think we should paint the barn door or leave as is??? Let me know in the comments for via my social media outlets!!




I always get nervous to share photos of myself via the blog because I have facial scars from a serious dog bite when I was 2 yrs old & 3 surgeries. My new go-to motto these days is " who cares" be yourself & share share shareeee! I love sharing my process with you guys & most of the time I'm not made-up but in a long braid, tank & baseball cap.SIMPLE ME.





I hope you guys liked this simple cottage garden tablescape. It's perfect for Mother's Day. Speaking of which, I don't really talk about much because it's a sad but happy day for us. Happy because we celebrate my mom who is so strong & helpful, but sad because of the tragic loss of Mark's mom when we was just 12. We celebrate her everyday, but it doesn't get easier. I also want to wish everyone who is trying to become, is or was a mom & that includes dog mommas too. Although we don't want kids, that doesn't stop my heart from feeling for those who do or have lost one.

Happiest weekend, pals!

{ Cozy Spring Garden Cottage Porch Setup }

Oh Monday you've been a sleepy one already...HEY, pals!!!!! Welcome back to TQS & happy Monday!!! As you can see today's post is s bit late getting out & that's because Sunday we were up late in the yard having a cozy bonfire after some spring exterior cleaning/planning..We brought some fresh strawberries out & enjoyed a huge bonfire with the pups, pretty perfect ending to the weekend!! While we were sprucing up the yard with new mulch, edgers { I can't wait to blog these } & just upkeep I managed to sneak away for a minute & throw some cute stuff together on the front porch..I wanted  rustic, chippy ticking stripe goodness with lots of  garden style mixed in. Our porch isn't huge but it's enough for a bench, table & decor, so it's perfect. Come see this quick little spruce up with one of my most favorite things from junkin' to date.. 


I moved this white bench from our back patio up to the front. I love the chippy weathered look about it & it's super comfortable plus from my gram. The green chippy table was a free find & was inside, but I thought it looked great out here paired with the crisp white & blue / green accents!




This little spot is so perfect for ice cold lemonade stops after working in the yard, yes we actually use this spot. I can't wait to play around with this spot more for 4th of July { my fav } & so on...Still debating if I should paint these planks white??? Leave me a comment below with your opinion.


 Okay, FINALLY my favorite piece I added out here- THIS WOOD ANGEL! If you've been following me for a while you would know I'm obsessed with angels & higher powers..I have this thing with angels even though I'm not religious, I love them & they soothe me. I like to think of this angel as Mark's mom watching over us { she passed tragically when he was 12 }. I spotted this garden mount at a junkin shop a few years ago & I knew I HAD to have it. It has been all over our home but I LOVE it out front. It makes a nice statement too & it;s chippy white..check check!




What do you guys think about this cozy little spot? So simple & quaint, but oozes with charm & personality right?! I hope you love this little spot just as much as we do. The angel completes this spot sooo much! 

Happy Monday!
