Songs For November

Well that was a bit of radio silence, huh? So sorry. I gotta tell you guys, that One Room Challenge really wiped me out. That and all last week my in-laws were visiting from Germany, oh and I was playing reindeer games last Sunday too! Let me tell you about it! Susan and William of House Of Brinson were shooting in town, so Nicole of Making It Lovely and I thought we’d entertain them a bit. Plus, we all wanted to meet face-to-face…finally!

First stop was Randolph Street Market. We found loads of goodies, stuffed our faces with homemade empanadas, and I might have been sipping on some champagne. Ya, that’s how we flea in Chicago. Beth from South Loop Loft (check out her new fancy website) met us at her new location where we gawked over her chandeliers, Chesterfield sofas, and Canary Lane’s incredible vintage rugs. And yes, there was more champagne, and everyone watched me snarf down my very first macaroon. Seriously, why have I never had a macaroon before? I’ve been missing out on life. After that Kodak moment, it was on to The Savoy Flea. It was a vintastic day had by all.

Mixtape Playlist

In my teen years, if we were friends, you probably received a mixtape from me. I probably spent hours pouring over cassette after cassette trying to find the most perfect song that I thought you might just love. More often then not, it was indie music. Something obscure you’d never heard before, and my hopes were that you’d love a certain band just as much as I did. Growing up in a small rural town in Wisconsin made it difficult to find anything that wasn’t Top 40 or Country. But I lived close enough to Madison, and State Street had great college record stores that fed my need for something different.
