Friday Favorites: Vintage Frames & Galvanized Buckets
Well I have officially made it through another week my friends. Can you guys believe I’m still pregnant?! Yep, still pregnant. I’m 39 weeks today and honestly I don’t anticipate this baby coming for at least another week. I mean, I told you guys already that I tend to over-cook my babies. My son was 41.5 weeks for heaven’s sake! I barely survived. My daughter was overdue too, so I highly doubt this babe will come early but you never know. I’ve been trying to take it a bit slower lately, but I really don’t do well with sitting around. It’s actually a challenge for me to do nothing. I love being busy, piddling around the house and working on projects. It’s just my nature I guess. But I am starting to slow my roll a bit and relax more, which is a good thing when you’re this large. Anyway, today’s Friday Favorites is a fun one. I have some random goodies to share with you, but I’m most excited about a pair of giant vintage frames!
Painted Vintage Frames
So a few weeks ago my mom actually found these huge vintage frames for me at an estate sale for $3.50 each. How sweet of her, huh? They were an ugly gold-ish brown color, so I gave them a quick coat of white paint (of course!) and they have a whole new look now. I am actually thinking of doing a fun wall collage with these, but I styled them up on our mantel for now.
What a steal at $3.50 each, right?! I see these in antique shops, already painted and distressed, all the time and they’re usually $25+ for frames this large. Or easily more. These were a total score!
Hanging Galvanized Buckets
If you saw my front room makeover post earlier this week you might have noticed the hanging galvanized buckets on the door over in the corner. I actually got these at Magnolia Market when we visited back in March. I had them on my staircase gallery wall for a while, but I don’t think I ever really mentioned them, which is craziness because I LOVE these buckets. They’re so versatile and they actually come with little hangers on the back so they can be put on the wall or anywhere your heart desires. I hung them on this old door for my room makeover and I’m kind of smitten with them in this spot.
Since they have little hangers on the back it was super easy to hang each one from a little nail in the door. They went up in just a few minutes and I think they add a lot of charm to this old door.
Unfortunately these are no longer sold on the Magnolia website, but I did find a few very similar options for you guys!

Favorite Summer Makeup
All right, I want to chat about something girly for a hot minute. You guys, I have been looooooving this CC+ Cream from IT Cosmetics. This is my go-to summer beauty product when I want something easy and quick for my skin. I used this last summer too and I actually just picked up a tube for my hospital bag because I wanted something quick and easy after baby is born. It gives great coverage, plus it’s loaded with tons of amazing stuff for your skin–including sunscreen, which is perfect for summertime.
4th of July Firework Blondies
So yeah….This happened. Of course I’ve been browsing Pinterest for 4th of July food ideas and I came across these Firework Blondies from Crazy for Crust. OMG. How amazing do these look?! I love blonde brownies, I mean who the heck doesn’t, and these couldn’t be more perfect for the holiday weekend. I don’t know who is more excited about making these–me or the kids!
All right my friends, that’s a wrap for me today. I’m off to make brownies and wait for baby to come. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! xoxo
