My First Trader Joe's Haul: Friday's Find #373

Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! After years of coveting the beautiful plants, flowers, and other goodies that I've seen blogger friends score from Trader Joe's, I finally made the 65 mile trip to the one nearest me...

my fave's from Trader Joe's

If you shop regularly at Trader Joe's, please humor my newbie obsession! Every time I visit Colorado, Dear Firstborn treats me to their favorite foods from their local Trader Joe's. For Christmas, she and EL gave me a TJ gift card, hence my recent haul! I started in the floral department and brought home several bunches of fragrant eucalyptus and chamomile. I also stocked up on these amazing grapefruit candles--they're made with coconut-soy wax and smell ah-mazing! The bouquets and candles were all $3.99 each--better prices than I can find locally! 


I am a fan of sweet and sparkling wines which were also very reasonable. 

my faves from Trader Joe's

Dear Firstborn gave me some lavender scrub for my birthday. I liked it so much that I bought some more and also decided to try a few of their other bath and body products. 

my faves from Trader Joe's

This dish soap smells great! I've used avocado oil spray before so I look forward to trying theirs.

Cottagecore Spring Home Tour

Happy Monday, Friends! It's finally spring and I'm delighted to join the Bloggers' Best Spring Home Tour! You'll see lovely home inspiration from several different bloggers every day this week. Join me today as I share my vintage favorites gathered from my thrifted collections. 

Cottagecore spring home tour

If you hopped over after visiting our sweet host Kelly from the Tattered Pew, welcome! I always enjoy seeing her beautiful home! Have you noticed that many decor styles tend to overlap these days? Instead of being defined by a specific label, I tend to decorate with what I love, allowing my home to tell my story.

Cottagecore spring home tour

Having said that, I have come to realize that most of my decor embraces the cottagecore aesthetic. The trend has been used to describe everything from clothing and decor to lifestyle choices. I've heard it referred to as "romanticized rural living" and "the feminine cousin of farmhouse decor"--these descriptions definitely tick my boxes! 

Cottagecore spring home tour

I also love that cottagecore combines floral accents, handmade decor, vintage dishes, and timeworn textures. I'll be sharing more spring accents from my kitchen in a few weeks. In the meantime, you can find the tutorial for my botanical spritzer can upcycle, here and look here to find my rustic flowerpot wreath!

As we head to the dining room, I never tire of my vintage transferware plate wall. This mostly thrifted collection has been gathered over time.

I had so much fun styling this "garden thyme" spring mantel and gallery wall--best of all, I gathered everything from my home and garden!

Do you like the scent of hyacinths or do you find them cloying? I enjoy them in a larger space, but the sweet fragrance might be overwhelming in the bedroom.
