lexixd A day late but @littlemrsmack tagged me and asked what I was up to! Yesterday I was suffering from some serious vintage couch envy. The family I nanny for got tons of furniture from their dad's childhood home and it's like all my dreams coming true but in someone else's house! swoon. What are you up to @contemplatingbeauty @katherinemaries @casadecupcake 5d

lexixd I've been watching and waiting all week and I missed the birth of this guy by about 10 minutes. His little foot is still in the cocoon!! So sweet. But I would have really liked to see the whole emerging thing. Ah well. #monarch 2w

lexixd Uhhhhh we may have gone overboard at the farmers market kale, zucchini, patty pan squash, plums, raspberries, lemon cucumber, BABY CANTALOUPE(so so cuuute!), beans, pears, ground cherries, peppers, tomatoes, apple cider, sweet potatoes, hand made perogies and flowers we feast like kings this week! But we might need a little help, anyone wanna come over for dinner? #farmersmarket 3w

lexixd Soooo yesterday I hit the jackpot... I happened across this post on Facebook about a "FREE SALE" in an old pole barn outside of town. I booked it there and came away with this GIANT haul!! All completely FREE! It was amazing. my only regret is not making it there soon enough to snag the huge delphite blue FireKing set that I spied in the posts photo. But that's ok I suppose, because everything else is so lovely! #thrifty 4w

lexixd ️ this morning I found two cocoons under a shelf in front of our house. This afternoon I walked outside and this butterfly baby was drying out his wings! Freshly born! The little butterfly pal was pretty popular with the neighbors little ones and he even took a rest on @serotoninzero 's beard left him to rest in some bushes. Now I'll be watching every day for butterfly birth from the second cocoon! So so cool. #monarch #butterfly 4w

lexixd I'm starting to think that being a little smidge of a hoarder has it's perks ️ Does anyone else buy nice things on a whim and store them away for when you need a nice last minute gift? I love always being prepared for spur of the moment surprise celebrations. Vintage candlesticks and plush blankets do the trick 1mon

lexixd Spent last night crafting up these beauties for our sweet god-daughter's 1st birthday photos that I'm taking on Monday I've said it before and I'll say it again, crafting with a purpose is where it's at for me. I don't want to do anything when there is no one or no specific thing that I need to craft for! It's time I give myself a purpose and kick this rut in the butt. the white ones are Martha Stewart brand but the pink ones are all me + 100 glue sticks 2mon
  •   lexixd @breemcmahon you just made all my dreams come true! 2mon
  •   jess_kluthe I agree! Crafting with a purpose is where it's at for me as well. 2mon
  •   lexixd @casadecupcake you are the sweetest thing. I miss everyone on IG lol. Truly that's almost the worst part of the rut! 2mon
  •   lexixd @amandarydell I still need to read your book! 2mon
  •   amandarydell You know I am just giving you a hard time 2mon
  •   lexixd @amandarydell I know but I'm dead serious tell me how to get it!! 2mon
  •   carolynwurzer Do you have a suggestion on tissue paper Pom poms? Are Martha brand truly the best? I figured I have to ask the expert, all of your crafts are perfect! 1mon
  •   pam_sandhu_3 Lovely. 3w

lexixd I'd like to take a moment to say thank you to the sweet man in my life! @serotoninzero has been a freakin trooper the last 3 days. I sprained my ankle(skipping like a princess right off a walkway(no I wasn't drunk)) and have been pretty much a huge pile of whiny limping crap. He's cooked for me, taking a thousand trips up and down the stairs for all the things I'm constantly forgetting, cleaned(a little) and when we ventured out to the farmers market to test the walking waters, he walked extra slow so I could keep up, and let me get TWO boquets of flowers. If that's not love then I don't know what is 2mon
  •   kathrynfhoff Cannot believe you your ankle still hurts, Miss graceful Broadway Tits! What a nice hubbs you have! 2mon
  •   jenkrosch Oh darling! Get better! We need to go to the market together someday! And buy allllll the flowers! 2mon
  •   lexixd @kathrynfhoff I legit had to have both my Friday and Saturday shifts covered! And I'm still not going to be even close to 100% tomorrow but I have to work. Like HAVE to work! PS Miss Beauty Queen are you still spending the night? Please say yes! 2mon
  •   lexixd @jenkrosch yes pleeeeease let's!! Normally I don't have the day off to go, but I actually will next Saturday too! Date?? 2mon
  •   jenkrosch Yes it's a date! I usually go super early to get the cream if the crop but name the time and I'm there! Maybe by then I'll be situated and can give you a tour of the new digs. The photo today is the only thing coordinated and done 2mon
  •   lexixd @jenkrosch girl going at 12 is where it's at!! They cut all the prices down and there is still tons of amazing produce. lol but I am willing to compromise at maybe 10? 2mon
  •   jenkrosch Whatttttt they cut the prices down? Noon it is! That will let me sleep in :) 2mon
  •   lexixd Hell yeah girl everything closes at 1 so they usually make things a dollar or two cheaper. Got 2 huge boquets for $4 total today lol! They were priced down from $5. Boom. I'll bring you an iced coffee? 2mon
