5 fave friday

5. vintage radios
There are so many pretty colours! I have been thinking about radios big time since we saw a whole bunch while antique browsing with Kaylah and Kevin. Now I am kind of dying for one!

4. mid century dining sets

I really don't know how much longer I can go on without one. My obsession is getting pretty serious. One of my friends has a sweeeet set and I may just have to steal it. (i'm only half joking)

3. pretty wall displays

2. cute book ends

1. pretty glasses

I have been thinking about home decor a lot lately (in case you can't tell by this post). I absolutely can't wait to not live in a basement and to be able to make a cute little home for Ivan, myself and the kitties. We are on our way to a home inspection today so cross your fingers for us!    

I hope you are all having an amazing Friday!



  1. Adore that room with the plates displayed! I can't wait to find a property some day where I feel truly settled and can decorate thoroughly- sigh! And good luck :)

  2. LOVE the home sweet home display, so creative.

  3. i love hearts and i have been meaning to do a heart shaped design on a wall but i'm so afraid it will come out looking like a blob or something unrecognizable.

  6. I'm a sucker for vintage radios. So cute! xo, rv

  7. I have almost identical bookends to those deer ones, I've got them in my studio sat either side of my 60s Singer sewing machine.

    I was drooling over some vintage radios in Fenelon Falls yesterday, but they wouldn't fit in my case :-(

  8. I love LOVE the deer bookends!! So sweet! Happy Friday Elycia! :-)

  9. I love all of these things haha! Good luck on the inspection and happy decorating on your new place! :)

  10. Ha, the weinerdog bookends are great! And so are all of the wall hangings.

  11. I love all of these gorgeous wall displays. I am about to move into a new place and I would to make some of these ideas come to life! :)

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  12. Those deer bookends are just about the cutest things ever!! And I love the aqua radio!

  13. Ooooh those vintage radios are to die for! I also love that heart collage on the wall. I don't know if I would have the patience to actually go through with it, but a good (and quick!) substitute is to arrange magnets like that. I started my new job recently and there was magnetic poetry on the cupboard at work when I arrived. After getting frustrated with trying to string a poem together I just made it into a heart and it looks so cute!

    I've been here before ages ago and I can't remember why it's taken me so long to come again, but I loooooove your blog. It makes me want to curl up with a blanket and a good cup of tea and just hang. ;)

  21. Definitely check out Aberfoyle in the spring when it opens - I found my vintage radio there. And I've see a few chrome and vinyl table sets there. I also own the first set of 'Pretty glasses'. I believe they're from the Freelton flea market. The flea markets out that way are full of great steals!
