loving Emily's combination of lace & color - especially the shoes!!

vintage hip!

Always on the hunt for a bargain, we stopped at Lucketts Store in Lucketts, VA on our way home from Morgantown, WVA today! Although we walked away empty handed, it was fun to see what they had and gain some inspiration for future decorating! If you're in the area, visit Lucketts webpage to check out items fresh of the wagon! The weekend of May 21st they are having over 100 vendors for their outdoor spring show - admission is only $7 - make a day of it and check out the local wineries too!
