scenes from the weekend

the weekend the mr. and i had reminds me why i love chicago so much. the weather was beautiful and we took full advantage by exploring surrounding neighborhoods, street festivals, and antique shops. 

the mr. and i went to retro on roscoe on saturday, a fun street festival, complete with retro cover bands, artisan vendors and local eats. we enjoyed a beer over lunch in between visiting vendor tents and checking out the live bands.

my love.

on sunday, we finally visited praha, a home goods store in our neighborhood, which we've been meaning to check out since we moved here. i'm so glad we did because we found this gorgeous crystal lamp that had been on the floor for less than an hour! we snapped it up right away since it was only $46!!

 hello, gorgeous.

and my subscription to house beautiful just started, so i've poured over my first issue while we caught up on the last of the olympics.

pastels for life

how was your weekend?
