On My Mind…Lately

It’s Friday!  Anyone have any big plans?  My husband and I are attending the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) Maryland Chapter Gala in Baltimore tomorrow, so that should be fun!  I’m not an interior designer but I was invited to go because I work part time for Karen Renee Interior Design in Severna Park, Maryland.  Not quite sure what to expect but it’ll be fun to get dressed up one last time before the baby arrives.  Other than that, we plan to get my car serviced, install the carseat, and put a rug pad under our living room rug (sounds enthralling, right?).

Here are 5 things that have been on my mind this past week.  Enjoy!

1.  Re-Opening of Dash of Vintage Whimsy.  

Every home needs a little blue and white ginger jar!

I reopened my Etsy shop about 2 weeks ago and I’ve slowly been adding fun new (vintage) items!  If you’re looking for a way to make your home look more unique or fun, consider adding a dash of vintage whimsy.  Incorporating vintage items among your newer things is a great way to make your home look less cookie cutter and more eclectic.  

2.  Adorable Baby Boy Onesies.  

Have you been to Old Navy lately?  I stopped by yesterday and bought a few things for Baby Vail.  They have the cutest little outdoorsy onesies!

3.  Hospital Bag Packing List.

It’s time for me to pack my hospital bag, and even though I’ve done all sorts of research I still haven’t started packing.  This packing list featured on The Glitter Guide this past week has some great ideas.  I really need to get started!

4.  All the Plaid at Target!

‘Tis the season of plaid!  Have you noticed?  I’m going to jump on the bandwagon here and say that I love the new Target line that just came out.  These pillows are especially fun and I think they would be a great way “fall up” my pink wingback chairs.  I don’t need any new pillows but if I were to buy some I’d definitely scoop up two of these beauties.

5.  Oatmeal Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins.

This oatmeal pumpkin chocolate chip muffin recipe from Averie Cooks looks really yummy.  I’m really loving the pumpkin and chocolate combo this fall!

Need some more Life with a Dash of Whimsy in your life?  I’d love for you to join me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter!

I hope you have a great weekend!
