Animal Fabric.

I've fallen for the animal motifs on these outfits - I need that lobster fabric!

Flea Market Finds.

Last week we took a mini holiday up to my parents house in Wisconsin.

While we were there we hit up the local flea market and everyone came home happy with their own special find - and, in my case, an unfortunate sunburn!  When will I ever learn?

The best find of the day was this gorgeous table and chairs for $85.  Looks great in my parent's backyard - but ultimately ended up on Rach's back deck.

We couldn't believe our luck - as it was our last find of the day.  Now we just have to find some gorgeous fabric to make cushions for the chairs - otherwise it is in perfect condition!

Found this super cute polka dot pouf for $6!
Loved this bamboo bar cart.
I never get tired of these plaid Scotch Koolers.
There's one vendor who always has some kind of treasure we love - this time it was this adorable stack of books made of carved wood.
I couldn't pass up this necklace - I have a soft spot for seed bead jewelry.  Can't wait to hit up the next flea market - they are always so much fun!

Missoni for Target.

I'm looking forward to the new Missoni for Target line coming out in September - this blanket has to be my favorite!

I'm intrigued - how about you?

Summer Camp.
This summer all of my nieces and nephews went to sleep-away camp.  I loved going to camp when I was young and still remember how much I looked forward to it every year.  I am so thrilled that they all love camp as much as I did!

One of my all time favorite movies is Meatballs - Bill Murray at his best - and I have watched that movie countless times with Bea, Sol, Max, and Eloise - part of being a cool Aunt requires bringing over movies that their mom's might not choose!

Bill Murray made being a camp counselor seem pretty cool.

Love this cabin plaque with all of the bunkmates names listed! 

Every camp seems to rest next to a gorgeous lake.

The sleeping cabins always had their own charm!

I wish I could still go away to camp!

This looks like a pretty good version of camp for adults.

I love a good dining hall.

When I was in high school our time at camp involved building new docks and putting new roofs on the cabins - it was so much fun and really rewarding.

I dug up this old picture from camp - me in the middle of my two best friends from camp, Salam and Hilary.  Such good memories!

My nephew Max gets back from his first week at camp this Saturday - I can't wait to hear all of his stories!
