Found & Foraged Linky Party #42

Happy Saturday you guys and welcome to the very last Found & Foraged Linky Party. Yep, you read that right. It’s with a heavy heart that I’m calling it quits. After a lot of soul searching I’ve decided that I need to refocus and reevaluate my Saturdays, but that doesn’t mean goodbye. It means I’ll be freeing up a lot more time to create fun new projects. That was ultimately the deciding factor. I’ve enjoyed my Found & Foraged time with you. Discovering new blogs, meeting new friends, and reading about your new projects. I’ll still be visiting, and I hope you’ll be stopping back here as well. And with that, here are my last Found & Foraged features.

Found & Foraged Linky Party #41

BIGGEST ANNOUNCEMENT: We are going to take Labor Day Weekend off, so no Linky Party next Saturday, Sept. 5th., but we’ll be back Sept 12th. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I’ve been having one heck of a fun day you guys. This morning I got up super early and walked Randolph Street Market with Jen Harrison, hung out with Meredith from Canary Lane and finally met Beth from South Loop Loft. Wow! Did I find some seriously amazing treasures. Stacks of indigo you guys! Stacks! A great hammock from Canary Lane and this insane sheepskin that I can’t wait to walk on. Happy toes.

If you didn’t see my Before & After Guest Bedroom Reveal, please check it out. And if you’ve already checked it out, well then you need to go look at Huffington Post because it just got published over there. EEP!

I’m also playing with the Periscope app. So, if you guys want to see me looking like a bumbling fool pretty soon, look me up on Periscope and give me a follow @houseofhipsters It will notify you when I’m live. Have a great weekend!!!

Found & Foraged Linky Party #36

Happy Saturday you guys! Welcome to the Found & Foraged Linky Party! Where we like to share all sorts of cool projects from recipes to DIYs to room decor to fashion…OK, really anything that you think is awesome. We’ve had new bloggers show up which is so cool, and I just wanted to take a second to thank each one of you, new and old for taking the time to stop by and party here. We wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you.

So what are you guys up to tonight? Oddly, tonight I’m in a circus big top tent at a PHOX concert. Tomorrow will be getting up close and personal with Lodge Coffee Roasters. The owner, Mista Moyer, will be taking me to a remote location to do a private roast and show me the ins and outs of his process. Can’t wait to share the experience on the blog. If you don’t know, I’m a huge fan of this hand crafted coffee. The man is a coffee genius. It’s subtle, not bitter, bold, but not overpowering. But it’s limited offerings. Right now he is sold out (watch his online store for new batches to arrive), whomp, whomp. But I just got the down low on a Bali roast coming soon…you guys got the inside scoop! Sounds amazing, and I can’t wait to try it.

Welcome to the Found & Foraged Linky Party you guys! It’s Saturday night! What do you all have on your agenda? I have something big happening over here. HUGE actually! I’ve got my camera out, and I’m running around like a mad woman trying to get it all finished up. Can’t wait to tell you all about it. Crossing my T’s and dotting my I’s and hoping like heck it doesn’t fall thru like the last one did. Some we are just going to get right into the party tonight. I DO want to hear all about your week though. What did you do? Who did you see? Did you buy anything awesome? Any vintage treasures? Let me know!

Found & Foraged Linky Party #34

Hello! Hello! Welcome to the Found & Foraged Linky Party! Did you guys have an amazing Fourth Of July? Ours was quiet but still busy. The Boy and I took the kiddos to the carnival and let Little Dude stay up late to watch the fireworks. That is with one stipulation; don’t tell your sister you get to stay up. He abided by that rule, but you could tell it was difficult to hold in the excitement. At one point he ran over to her and jumped up and down like a banshee and said, “Nevermind!” and ran away. Little weirdo.

We put Little Maus to sleep and Little Dude waited politely in his room until I got him. He was give the choice to watch ET or (old school) Willy Wonka. I described both plot lines and let him study the DVD covers. He felt ET might be too scary and opted for Willy Wonka. Meanwhile, The Boy was making tacos for our dinner. I made a tasty libation. About twenty minutes past when Little Dude says, “Hey Mommy. Hey Daddy. Is this what you guys do every night?” The Boy and I kinda giggled and said, “Ummmm, ya???” He said, “Cool!!!!” We topped off his evening with an ice cream bar while he was dressed as Luke Skywalker. What a kid.

Well, let’s get this party started already, shall we? Again you guys brought your A Game with you. Every project was on point and glowing! Loved them all! Here are a few features.
