Blogger Mixer at DownEast Home & Clothing

Earlier this week all us wild and crazy Idaho Bloggers got together and mixed it up at DownEast Home & Clothing store. I had so much fun. So much.

Not only did I fall in love with sooo many pieces of furniture, home decor and clothes, I got to meet some of these lovely Idaho Blogger ladies (check them out at the end of this post).

Oh and the staff…they are like long lost friends. They were sooo helpful. They bent over backwards to find coordinating looks or locate the right size at another store. Go in and establish a relationship with them. You will not regret it.

Let’s start with furniture….

Do I even need to say anything about how smashing this is??? I want it and I will put it in my living room with my T.V. on it because I am sure all of my shows will be 10 times better if the T.V. is sitting on this beautiful chest.

Now onto the fashion stylish goodness. I could have emptied my savings account. Here are my favorites!!!!!
