grandma's









My Saturday consisted of a spur-of-the-moment trip down to visit my amazing Grandma who lives in the teensy little town where I grew up until the age of 10. The weather was gorrrgeous. 60 degrees. It gave me false hope of spring.

She lives on a farm where I've always enjoyed gallavanting around, thus the pictures taken by grain bins and bean fields. That also explains the semi-plain outfit and poor quality pictures...a very spontaneous photo shoot indeed.

To my childish delight, she let me take a bunch of stuff that she is getting rid of, including some fantastic brooches and beautiful platters and dishes. I tell you, stuff was just made better back then. The dishes all have amazing details that cannot be found on your typical glassware these days.


Treasures.


Wearing an Anthropologie necklace, Express jeans, Zara tee, secondhand boots, and a Liz Lange maternity sweater from Target. (not pregnant, just love the cozy huge-ness of the thing...it's probably the softest sweater I own)

I am sooo jealous! That looks so fun. Those pictures make me homesick. And you MUST give me that sweater.
