Hi my friends, how as the weekend? Not much here, I finished my son's nightstand that I will share with you on Wednesday unless the weather will remain this crappy and I can't get any decent pictures.
We watched our kids soccer in the rain with one loss and one win. Visited Harry's grave since the kids had painted him some rocks to tell him how much they missed him. And also had a fire pit with the neighbors. So all in all it was a pretty good weekend. But we still miss our King Harry.
My favorite thing I bought last week are my new sandals. I know if you follow me on Instagram then you saw them already but I'm sharing them here again:

And I bought some things at forever21. I know I'm technically too old but they have some really great affordable stuff. Especially their accessories.
I bought this jacket:

And then I got some accessories but I could have bought it all. So much great stuff:
Sorry that I couldn't find the links to the past two items.
|Geo Bib Snake Chain Necklace|
And also from Francesca's (no links again but there is other great stuff):
And last but definitely not least, I found this whale at HomeGoods on clearance. I have always been a whale lover and I actually went as far as having a CD with whale sounds on it as a teenager that I used to listen to for relaxation. (So sorry for the bad photos but like I said, we had horrible dreary days):
I didn't like the grey antiqued busy paint job, so I used some gold Rub 'n Buff and now I'm loving him.
For a moment I was contemplating sawing him in half to make book ends but I couldn't do it. Check these out:

Here are some other vintage ones I found online , which you can still buy:

|Pottery Barn whale bookends|
So what do you think besides the bad photos? Thoughts? Are you a whale person?
That's it for today. Don't forget to come back on Wednesday for the midcentury nightstand reveal. I hope I can get some nice shots with natural day light.
