Randolf Street Market, Chicago // NEW RUG!

newRug This square, colorful, rug couldn't be more perfect for our little dining nook. It makes me so happy!!! Seems like it was made for the space. I bought it on Sunday at the Randolph Street Market. The gals from Amelia Jane Vintage gave me a deal. I always get e-mails about the market and have wanted to go and on Sunday we actually went!! Yeaaaa!! :) Summer is all about making things happen!


A few lovely things above!^^^ eames chair & sputnik chandelier // bertoia chair // pretty aztec tufted sofa // turqouise striped vintage camper // ...I also loved these mirrored panels below!



>>our little place is slowly coming together! I haven't shopped much, but I couldn't pass up the rug. All you need are a few pieces to pull a room together! :) Still in progress, but it's been a lot of fun! ...maybe if we stay here long enough I'll be able to change that light fixture! :) >> next up: art on the walls!


 ^^^ love these two. xoxo ^^^ PS! I updated / S I M P L I F I E D my about page! :) and I added Bingley to the front page of the blog! He's just tooooo cute!




"Greatness demands everything. Sacrifice is only the beginning.

moon The hours it takes to move something beyond “good enough” crush some, but you are different. You sacrifice to create work that is exceptional, timeless, flawless. Offer up your best work — in fact, offer up your self. Judgment is the only way to tell where the bar is, and if you’ve surpassed it.


Judgment is final. There is no appeal.


In order to be considered among the best, you must be judged by the best. It's time to find out whether you measure up. Will your name be recorded? Will you join the ranks of those oft-spoken names that came before you? You must present yourself to find out. Talent only gets you so far. Courage delivers you."
