I don't know where to begin to explain what a black hole I've been this whole week. From last weekend's trip to repainting our living room (more on that later, promise!), everyday has been booked up and only now am I getting the chance to share with you what's been going on.
Let's start with our trip to Rutherford to see Mary Ellen (Steve's cousin) and her family. We had such a lovely stay with them in their beautiful house - Mary Ellen has promised to send photos of her house since I didn't think my point-and-shoot would do it justice. We also got to meet Thomas, their adorable 16 month old son. Since we had so much to catch up on, Mary Ellen and I barely had a chance to talk about interior design stuff, but we did have time to go to this amazingly packed consignment shop called 'Then & Now' in Hawthorne, New Jersey. I swear, the minute we walked in I was on an adrenaline rush and couldn't concentrate on anything else but to shop, shop, shop. I think I kind of freaked out Mary Ellen and her husband Rich, but Steve explained to them that I was just in the "zone."
As you can see in the photos, there are A LOT of fantastic things in this store. I must've done 3 or 4 rounds of the store, and even as I left, I noticed MORE items that I missed. Ah well, that just means I have to come back soon, right? If you are ever in the Hawthorne, New Jersey area, make sure you check out this consignment shop. You'll be sure to find something to take home.
