Estate Sales

Attending An Estate Sale

This past weekend for me was really weird. The boy goes on a duck hunting adventure in Wisconsin every year. Normally that means he drives the kiddos up a day early, drops them at grandpa and grandma’s house, and I follow Friday night after work. Well, this year was different. He kept saying to me, “Wow momma! You get 4 days off to yourself! What are you going to do with all that quiet time?” Huh, umm, well, I have to work and then I’ll be at my parents, with the kids, and you’ll be at some cabin. I don’t get it.

Surprise! Surprise! Some how my parents were finagled into watching the critters from Wednesday to Sunday, and I got to stay home! BY MYSELF! IN COMPLETE AND UTTER SILENCE! TO DO WHATEVER I WANTED TO DO! OMG! What the heck was I going to do with myself? Well, first I made a hair appointment. Then I perused the estates sales. Have you ever been to one?

Grandma Pearl’s Zucchini Bread

It must be that time of year again because my parents keep showing up on my doorstep bearing zucchini by the armload. The neighbor lady brings it to their back door when she harvests extra. We like to make this casserole called Zucchini Italiano which has really no Italian ingredients in it except for tomatoes and possibly some oregano? But it makes for a hearty meal here at House Of Hipsters and resides in the church cookbook with my name beside it. I also make my grandmother’s Zucchini Bread recipe. A recipe I’ve eaten for years and years. A recipe I now make for my children that makes them squeal with glee. Today, I’ve decided to share it with you.

Hanging Curtains

Do you guys remember how I make Emily Henderson cry? Remember my sad, sad, sad looking bedroom? If not, click here to read about it. Well, the makeover has started. I’ve had some backorder issues and a lot of wait time, but everything is starting to arrive and I’ve been dying to give you a tiny sneak peek. While I’m at it, I figured I’d give you a few tips on how we hung our rods from The Shade Store. BTDubs, I’m not getting paid for this post, I’m just crushing hard on this lovely brass hardware. If you could ever marry hardware, I’d marry these brackets! I mean look at this little lovely! Pretty dope, right?!?!

11 Bargain Buys Under $100

Hey you guys! Happy Tuesday and thanks for stopping! I don’t know what you have planned for the day, but mine is full of work, work, and more work. Boo, right? Well, I’m preparing to turn that frown upside down with this fun post! So, I have to be truthful with ya, remember that post of 10 Bargain Buys Under $100 here? I had to pare it down because it was outta control! There was too much goodness for just one post, so this is technically “Part Two of the Goodness”.

Are you ready for a shopping extravaganza because today’s list has an extra special yummy item. That tea towel WAAAAAY at the bottom. Laura found it while we were shopping over at the Renegade Fair in Chicago a couple weeks ago. She reluctantly walked away from it, since she was only living room shopping (girl’s got will power for days), but boy do I keep thinking about that little pretty pretty. Hey Laura, maybe you should have Ryan read this post? Hey Ryan, that tea towel down below, go buy it for your girl! She lurves it!

And BTDubs, there’s only 79 days ’til Christmas!
