Home / Favs


The Junk Shop: 181 Albany Turnpike, Canton, CT 06019. I frequent this store. There are so many cool things here. Jameson knows to drive by verrrrryyyyy slowly when we pass here so I can see if there’s anything good out front!

Avon True Value Hardware: 22 Dale Rd, Avon, CT 06001. I go here all of the time for odd/specialty items. They are all so helpful when I’m stuck and need some crazy hardware piece for a project. Thanks for your expertice, Avon Hardware!

Free Stuff: from the side of the road, the Avon dump swap, Craig’s List. I’m always keeping my eye out for FREE stuff!

Anthropologie: My MOST favorite store, but I just have to stick to the sale stuff. I mostly buy their clothes, but their home stuff, wallpaper etc. is great. Urban Outfitters, their sister store, has some cool stuff too. The quality isn’t as good, but their regular prices are Anthro’s sales prices. I’m currently obsessed with their chevron wallpaper, but I won’t buy because I could paint a wall like this for free.

Country Living Magazine: I get so many ideas from them, I just love their barn wood/country/primitive style (or what my mom calls ‘poor man’s antiques’). I actually don’t go to their website, but this is a MUST for subscriptions in my house! My mom buys it for me every year for Christmas.

Hartford Magazine: Home Decor section, for so many obvious reasons! :)

Life@Home: My fabulous ex-boss, Janet Reynolds, is the editor of this magazine (plus others), so I love to get inspiration and ideas from her!

SweetSugarBelle: simply amazing cookies. Super funny too!
