I’m hip, I’m cool…..I am part of the in-crowd!

Well according to Flea Market Magazine, anyway!

I generally don’t go out of my way to be in the in-crowd….but when I opened my new ‘Flea Market’ Magazine from Better Homes and Gardens, I found out that…. I am pretty hip and doing some in-crowd collecting!

I typically just ‘pick’ and purchase what I love or what catches my eyes….I do follow blogs, read plenty of décor magazines and of course watch Chip and Joanna on HGTV, but have learned over the years… just be me ~ in whatever style that may be.

I like to call it Blue Jean Cottage

I opened my new magazine and found a few of my collections were listed as ‘What’s Hot’!

I even found out my ‘all out denim blue’ is ‘in style‘ thru a recent Country Living Magazine article…..

So….I guess I am ‘in the in-crowd‘ after-all……what do ya know!

So this girl who doesn’t go out of her way to have what’s in or what’s hot….got it going on!

What have you collected over the years that is the new ‘It’ thing?

What comes around goes around.….right Mom?

  1. I think the best part of you being “Hip” is that you are collecting things that you truly love! I love seeing all of your collections! Vintage things make my heart skip a beat! And as I get older, I have migrated from “matching” things to “coordinating” things. I feed on your creative finds and find that you have such a good eye for picking up ‘treasures’. It is about time you got the recognition you deserve! 😀 I love your wonderful and inspirational blog! <3

    1. I like that moving from matching to coordinating….certainly another fun hobby!🙂

    I love flea market style and use it in my house. I love vintage kitchen, glassware, dishes, pots and pans, furniture, linens and have started collecting purses and hats. All of my collections are used in my home. Some remind me of my childhood or a favorite relative. I think they make a home warm and cozy.

    1. I agree! get out the good dishes from Nana and use them! Seems like we collect a lot of the same…fun!
