Two Things Tuesday
(and something very important)

These are two things I am loving around my house right now.
(Share your two things and link up at Kassi's blog.)

#1: my grandma's dresser

My grandma passed away a few years ago. I couldn't think of anything I wanted from her house more than this dresser. I love the mid-century design. It has been sitting in our garage since we got it just holding candles and random junk that we didn't need.

It has been promoted to holding clothes in our bedroom which is only fitting for a dresser with so much character.

On top of the dresser is a painting I did, a little jar from anthro that holds my rings, and a new vintage-looking alarm clock that I got Chris for v-day.

The above picture embodies the style we are going for in the new place; mid-century with a little sprinkle of fun. I can't wait to get started...5 days to the Ladd people!


#2: our Eames Molded Plywood Lounge Chair

We found this at Portland Modern a few weeks ago. I was a little hesitant because of the price but we actually got a very good deal on it because there is a tiny scratch from the previous owner. This tiny scratch knocked it into our price range, and without it we would never be able to afford this beauty. (we also won't beat ourselves up over any scratches Bennett may put in it while driving his Hotwheels on it in a few years since it has already been broken in)

But BEWARE...if you attempt to sit in it with riveted jeans, you will be scolded.


On to something of more importance than furniture...

Have you been to Pacing the Panic Room? Last summer I discovered it while searching for not-so-lame maternity clothes that would cover my baby bump. American Apparel had a link to it on their website.

Check out Ryan's maternity series and the current walk to 40 weeks because his work is amazing and it gives me inspiration to do something like this the next time around.

Please go check out the post he did today and support the cause, because LB is worth it. If you think about it, pray for LB and all the other kids with SMS today. Jesus heals!

    I love both of your two things! I'm always looking out for great mid century stuff but have so much trouble actually finding anything good.

    you have seriously great taste. you could be an interior designer. no joke. i always look forward to seeing little corners of your home :).

    as for that "pacing the panic room" maternity series....i saw this over the summer and fell in love with the idea. i showed craig immediately and told him to be prepared for taking photos of me when i'm preggo so we can do this. love it.
