Here are some of the ways I live that green lyfe.
First of all, I love the color green. Two of my favourite pieces of furniture are green.
This is a 1950s telephone table we got from the flea market in Tampa and we use it as a nightstand:
This green dresser was actually bought from a super cool Asheville store called Regeneration Station that I will do a post about later. Huge consignment warehouse full of EVERYTINNNNNNG u want:
Yes, there are some scratches on the mirror, and yes, it's a little dirty. This is my LAST MINUTE (really, is there any other way... Not for me, at least.) St. Paddy's Day green post!
These pieces are like double green, because they're green (literally) and they're green as in second-hand. You can't find this stuff at T@rget people! I think we talked about living that #secondhandfirst life here and another example of how amazing shopping second-hand can be for your home here.
To take it a bit further, I'm gonna brag on my baby the X-man. Asheville is amazing, but when driving up our otherwise gorgeous little hill, we noticed the sides of the street were covered with trash. I also noticed an older gentlemen literally picking up bag of garbage several days in a row. When I told Xavier about the man, he was immediately like, "I'm going clean that sh@t up". He contacted Asheville Green Works to ask to adopt the street. He is in the process of getting approved, but the X-man went ahead and cleaned it up already. He stated, "I don't need to wait for some agency to tell me I'm approved to clean a street." He went out last weekend on Saturday morning and cleaned up 7 bags worth of trash.
Hooking up to Spy Girl's Green Day post lolzzzz
Also, if you've gotten this far, I would like to add I have found the best vintage clothing store ever and am considering selling my soul to acquire ALL THE EVERYTHING in it. More on that later. I can't share it, yet, because my heart is too greedy and filled with lust for the STUFF. It's local anyway, so you have to come to Asheville to shop there. If you come I PROMISE I will take you there.
I'll probably do a post later... I just want to pretend that I own the place for a while. Is that so bad?
Love & Light,
