An Antique Suitcase, Farmhouse Cubbies & Lots More
Happpppy Friday you fabulous human being! How was your week? I wish I could tell you that ours was all rainbows and unicorns over here, but that wouldn’t be the truth. Because the truth is this week was full of a lot of rough moments–particularly rough mom moments. I don’t want to bore you with the details too much, but we took little Pearl to the allergy doctor on Monday and she had a hard appointment that involved getting blood work done. If you’ve ever had to do that with an infant you know how absolutely AWFUL it is. It’s basically torture. Poor little thing. It gives me chills just thinking about it. That definitely started our week on a stressful note and things never really improved much from there. It was just one of those weeks, ya know? It was a struggle for a lot of different reasons and I definitely shed a few tears this week. I really hate complaining because I have SO much to be grateful for in this season of life, but dang. It was a rough one. Anyway, enough rambling about all of that. Let’s get on to today’s Friday Favorites post. I have lots of fun goodies to share with you guys. And first up is an antique suitcase and an old fan I found last weekend!
OK, is that little blue fan the cutest thing ever or what?! You know how much I love antique fans and I’ve never had a small one like this. Plus I love it even more because of its rusty blue color. And that vintage suitcase was another find at the antique show. I’ve been really liking black accents lately and I just love the distressing on this thing. I’m sure it will get moved all over but for now I styled it here on our TV cabinet. It makes me smile very time I see it.
The new olive tree
My new olive tree came and I am loving it. I put it in our dining room for now but I know I’ll be moving this thing around everywhere. It’s amazing how a tree like this can totally bring a room to life!

Cute Farmhouse Cubbies
For the past several weeks I’ve been on the hunt for a cubby for our living room. I found the perfect one at an antique shop a while back, but as usual it wasn’t for sale so I’ve been looking online. I haven’t found exactly what I want yet, but I did come across a few cute options, so I thought I’d share!
This vintage inspired chicken coop is AWESOME. I love the look of these and they make such fun storage space. They’re used all the time on Fixer Upper in kids rooms and playrooms. This thing is super cute and functional!
Here’s another chicken coop inspired cubby. I love how this one is a bit smaller, so you could use it more like a shelf in your kitchen or dining room.
And lastly I found this adorable wooden wall cubby and it’s super affordable too. How cute, right?! I’ve actually seen this one on Pinterest many times and I’ve always loved it. And you know what I’m thinking….it would look amazing painted white. I’d remove the label slots, paint it white and distress it a bit, then put them back on. It would be so PERFECT.
Favorite skincare product
I’ve been using this kefir mask a lot recently and I am obsessed. I was just testing it out when I shared it in my updated skincare post a while back, but it’s seriously so good. My skin looks so much more plump and healthy after I use it and it doesn’t break me out, which is a huge plus. I get all excited when I get to use it because afterwards my skin is glowing. And just FYI–my Tula discount code is still valid. Use VINTAGENEST for 20% off site wide.
Other tidbits from the week:
- I picked up a pair of these textured floral pillows in white last week and I love them. Perfect for spring. I’ll share them soon!
- I recently ordered this wet brush and holy smokes, it’s a LIFE CHANGER. That may sound a bit dramatic, but it’s true. I always dread brushing my hair out when it’s wet because it’s usually full of tangles, plus I have a ton of hair so it’s a total pain. But this brush is super flexible, so it makes combing my wet hair really easy (and my daughter’s too!) plus it’s a good flat brush for blowdrying. LOVE it.
- I noticed the black gooseneck barn lights we used in our reading nook are back in stock. These sold out pretty quick when I mentioned them in that blog post, but they’re back!
- I posted this photo of little Pearl on IG a few days ago and I had several questions about the little scooter she was sitting in. It’s actually this one here and we’ve had it for a while now. My older daughter used it too. It has wheels so she can scoot herself all over the place and that big tray is large enough for toys and snacks. We absolutely love it!
All right guys, I better wrap it up here because this post is getting LONG. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend and I will see you back here soooooooooon! xo
