Happy Friday y’all!

It’s been a while since I did a Friday Favorites! Today I want to share with you some things I’ve been loving lately.

First up are these baskets from JoAnn’s Fabrics. I have been looking for baskets like these for a while that weren’t going to break the bank. I think these were originally $17.99, but I got them for $14.99. These are perfect for hiding items that may not necessarily be the prettiest. Right now I have one in the bathroom holding bathroom items and one in the living room holding DVDs and games.

Another thing I’ve been loving lately is this vintage-looking mailbox. This has been an item on my decor wishlist for a while. Most of the time they run anywhere from $50-$100; just outrageous. I got this at Michael’s for $24 (with a coupon of course.) It isn’t super heavy and it can hold items too! I’m still trying to find a place to display it, because for whatever reason command strips don’t want to stick to the walls of the townhouse. I plan to have flowers coming out of the box.

I’ve also been loving this grey ticking stripe pillow cover from TwistedBobbinDesigns on Etsy. I also bought a “Hello Fall” that hasn’t come in yet from craftKave on Etsy. I got the inserts from Amazon. Keep in mind when it comes to inserts and covers, you always want to buy the insert a size bigger than the cover. This will create a fuller look and ensure there are no droopy corners. I bought a 20×20 insert for 18×18 covers.

Next is this throw from Michael’s. This blanket is the softest thing that will touch your body. It was originally almost $40, but I got it for 40% off. It’s neutral design will ensure that it goes with every season and any decor theme. I also liked this blanket.

It goes perfectly with the pillow!

Something else I’ve been loving lately is this adorable tea towel. I got it from Kentucky Branded back home, but you can also buy it straight from Dishique’s website. They also have mint julep and bourbon ones for my Kentucky folks. Check out the rest of their designs here.

Last but not least is a shop I recently discovered. I stumbled upon Love Grows Wild Market when I was looking at Antique Candle Works website under the stores that sell their candles. Love Grows Wild is located in Kokomo, Indiana; about 30 minutes from where I go to school. It’s on the second floor of an antique store called The Original Treasure Mart. I initially thought it was a whole store; but it’s actually a booth in the antique shop. The owner, Liz Fourez, is the author of the popular book, A Touch of Farmhouse Charm. She also has her own blog. There were a plethora of items for sale, including many kitchen items. I absolutely loved everything in the booth! Her book is definitely on my Christmas list. If you are near Kokomo I would highly recommend visiting Love Grows Wild Market!

There was also another booth in the antique shop that I loved called Hidden Possibilities Market. Everything in both of these booths were 100% speaking my language. I will definitely be back!
