Hello, yesterday was Friday (Rebecca Black vibes) but we had no power so here’s my highlights of the week on Saturday! The shop will be up and running again next week.
Instead of glitter, we’re throwing some patterns around today – in mosaic tiles both new and old in this week’s home tour, and in a major archeological discovery unearthed this Spring.

Ancient Floor Inspo: Have you seen the amazing ancient tile work uncovered in Italy under a vineyard? The intricate mosaic work in blues and corals are majorly inspiring, and would fit in in a modern decor scheme or any “selfeet” on the addicting ihavethisthingwithfloors account on insta. The dig site dates back to the 3rd century and was discovered in the 1920s under a vineyard, and has just this past May been successfully excavated to reveal its beauty.
El Derecho: As I mentioned yesterday via LTE and my iPhone 7, this Wednesday a derecho hit our area (aka severe thunderstorm with tornado force winds minus the cyclone). Pictures after the jump. Okay it’s not “el derecho,” it’s just called a derecho but I keep saying it like it’s El Nino. We lost four trees and power for 48 hours, and thus found ourselves on a sweaty, mandatory staycation with 80+ degree indoor temps and exhausted, traumatized little kids.
