recent acquisitions

On our quest to make this house a home, Brandon and I have been picking up a few things here and there—whenever anything jumps out at us. We haven't been in a rush to add decor to this house, just letting the pieces find us. Since we've basically fulfilled all of our furniture needs by now, we've had fun finding smaller touches to add to our space. So here are the things we've scooped up over the past couple of months. Some were gifts, some amazing steals, and some we just couldn't resist...

I ordered these Natural Ringneck Pheasant Tail Feathers and thought they'd be perfect in a mint julep cup on our bar. Brandon said I was making the bar too feminine and, yeah, I can see that. So I thought these would add masculinity, but that lowcountry style we both love at the same time. Can't beat the $2 price for the impact they give.


You've probably caught this on Instagram already, but this persian rug came from Fletcher's Finds in Yemassee, just two miles off of I-95 Exit 38 in South Carolina. I'm obsessed with it. It made our kitchen so much more welcoming.


Side note: This next one doesn't belong to us, but Paula (owner of Fletcher's Finds) allows you take out rugs on approval, so this beautiful runner came home with us, too. It's going back since we ultimately decided on the one shown above, but look how pretty this rug is! The details are stellar. If you're interested, it will be back at Fletcher's Finds soon, along with tons and tons of other beautiful persians.


I don't think I've shared this yet, but my parents got me this print for Christmas. This went in our kitchen, also. 


...and my mom found this beautiful milk glass cake stand for us at a yard sale. I love it! I may need to make a cake now, huh?


Brandon and I were in desperate need of a piece of furniture in our foyer. Since it opens up to the dining room, where we have a lot of darker wood, I knew I wanted a painted piece, but nothing white since our walls are so bright. I knew this grey/green wash console would be beyond perfect in this space—and the price was pretty great, too. I searched all over the internet for it and found it priced best at Target, plus you can save an additional 15% off right now. 


Ok, lastly! Here are some wall pieces I've scooped up at random places. The dark wood frame and the unframed art came from Habitat for Humanity ReStore for $1 each. The antique ceramic cherubs came from Charleston Revisions.


These two vintage framed prints were just $15 each at Mount Pleasant Mall. I'm a little obsessed.
