I know I have blogged about the Ekster Barn Sale before, but I have to remind everyone how fabulous this event is! If you live in the Washington DC metro area, and are going to be around this holiday weekend, I definitely recommend making a trip to Ekster Antiques for their Labor Day weekend Barn Sale. Ekster Antiques is family owned and operated by Caroline Verschoor and Jon-Paul Saunier, who have such an amazing sense of style. Mom went to visit them for a Barn Sale sneak peak the other day, but I am hoping she will go back with me this weekend for the main event!

Another great source I discovered from our trip up to New York for the Gift show is The Cape Cod Polish Company. There was a nice guy at the show handing out samples, so yesterday while Jack was napping I decided to try mine out on a few lamps in the apartment. I am telling you this little piece of cloth has changed my life! I'm ordering a case of them, I'm obsessed! Friends and family don't be surprised if you get Cape Cod Polishing Cloths for Christmas, you will thank me. I cannot get over how amazing this product is, my "Chanel" lamps look brand spanking new!

While Mom and I were up in New York for a quick trip to the NY Gift Show, we stumbled upon Walter G Textiles, which is officially our new favorite source for block prints! Their textiles are fabulous, whether you want to be bold and wallpaper an entire room, make drapes, or simply add a pop of color with an accent pillow, you have to check out the prints from the talented ladies at Water G Textiles. I am dying to see their new wallpaper collection in person, unfortunately they didn't have any samples at the show, but they said they will be available soon. I can't wait for our order to come in!

For anyone who knows me, it's obvious, I love stripes. The fact that I sported horizontal stripes throughout my pregnancy right up until the day Jack arrived, was probably not the best decision I have ever made but oh well. One day Mom told me that Jack was going to grow up hating stripes because that is all I ever dress him in. Clearly she doesn't know what she is talking about, my love of stripes has not been adversely effected because I have a mother who is obsessed with them. From the floor of her porch, to the upholstery on her outdoor cushions, to her NEW awnings, the woman sure does love her stripes!
