Goodwill Ambassador

Looking around my home, there's a story behind most of the items lying around. Whether they were gifted, thrifted or traditionally bought, I love collecting useful, interesting items that mix modern with an eclectic touch. After each visit to my local Goodwill, 9 times out of 10 there's an item I can't pass up. Whether it's a classic addition to game night or a spinning globe to track new destination, my rooms are constantly incorporating pieces collected over time.

  1. I love this little sneak peek - so many beautiful items! The antique globe is my favorite. I remember playing with one at home for hours when I was growing up and carefully inspecting the different countries and imagining traveling there.

  2. I just love an old globe! Probably because I am such a travel bug. Your home looks beautiful :)
