First "Fall Like" Day

Well, the hot humid days of summer may finally be slowly fingers are crossed. This past August and even September have been so incredibly humid. Some days I have had to remind myself why I live in the South. I mean, this heat can really get to you, especially after having a long summer and on top of that, originally being a transplant from the North. Well, finally it seems that Autumn is on it's way. It's all coming back to me now...I love the Carolina's!

Today was particularly special, filled with lots of tradition. The entire Saturday revolved around food, outdoor markets, antiques, pumpkins, long car ride adventures, trains, Autumn breezes, and more food. Here are some pictures of our day...

Here is Jono watching the train go by in Summerville. He loves trains and every time we visit this special little town we always seem to "catch" the train. I love how he becomes a child again, filled with excitement and least for a moment anyway...

I think I may have found my favorite antique shop...."Marigolds" ...of course!
Look at all the vintage tablecloths...<3
Not only is Teal one of my favorite's a new favorite shop! I couldn't believe all the "vintage inspired" fashion in this awesome!!!
As always, we found our perfect pumpkins at Fox Market!

The perfect day was ended with our favorite Italian restaurant..Penachio's.
Cheers to the new season and many enjoyments to come this Autumn!

100'th item SOLD!!!

I have so happy to announce that I've sold my 100'th item for Lula Boutique! I remember when I sold my very first item...and then second...I was just completely thrilled. I never imagined what 100 would feel like. I am just so grateful for the opportunity to sell my handmade items on Etsy. It's truly given me so much happiness and be able to have a little online shop of my own and do something I love. Thank you to all of my customers who have purchased from me thus far. So, to celebrate...I'm having a 10% off everything sale!
To receive 10% off, just add your items to the cart and checkout but don't complete the sale and pay. Just write "10% off sale" in the "Notes to Seller" and I'll send you an adjusted invoice. This sale is good until I've sold my 111 item.

Vintage Apron = <3

I purchased this Vintage Apron a while ago on Etsy at a shop called Laura Crow. I just fell in love with it the moment I saw it and immediately began to fantasize about all the yummy cakes and cookies I could make while wearing such a pretty apron. My fiancé laughed at me when I showed it to him and said, "Why on earth did you buy that?" Is it that weird that I like to pretend to be a domestic girl from the 50's? I'm sure anyone else would agree that chocolate cake tastes much better when prepared lovingly by a girl who happens to be wearing a vintage floral apron! ;)
