An Adventure Around Town

This morning Tim and I decided to get out and walk around town. This isn't unusual for us, but we can sometimes get stuck in a routine of just visiting the same few places. We decided to explore a little and go to a few shops we'd never been to, as well as some favorites we rarely get a chance to browse at.

There's a lot of galleries downtown.(We are actually having our wedding reception in the same building as one of them!) I feel like I always just pass 'em by because my wallet can't even entertain the thought of buying a piece of art. I never really think to just go in and admire, but today I did.

These are the window displays at one of the galleries we wondered into today. I have been loving sun-catchers lately and absolutely adored these ones! After seeing so many unique pieces and exploring our tastes in art we kind of thought it might be a cool idea to start a collection. For each year of life married we want to add one piece or artwork, that way our bank account won't suffer and we can enjoy having treasures around the house as our marriage grows.

We went to some of the antique stores on Cortez St. too and I have to say antiquing is one of my very favorite things to do. It always brings back memories of when I was a little girl living in Phoenix with my mom. Refurnishing old furniture was our hobby together and we always went to the antique mall on the weekend. I have her to thank for inspiring my love for DIY and up-cycling today!

There's one shop in particular that I really enjoy and get a lot of inspiration from called Mid-Century Madness. The name alone strikes a chord for any mod lover! When I walk into this place I feel as though I'm magically transported to the 60's and I should be styling a funky bob haircut and go-go boots. The furniture is beautiful, there's the most unique floor lamps and figurines, but my favorite section is by far the kitchen ware area. with bright colors everywhere and the cutest containers, I just wish I could take home everything!

I didn't come home empty handed though, I got to visit my favorite resale clothing store, Snap Snap and scored this pair of darling platform heels for $6.50!

I can't wait to see what tomorrow has in-store! I delight in days off so much, especially with my love! I hope everyone is having a great week!
