Vintage Copper Tea Kettle

2nd to cooler weather and fire pit evenings, my favorite thing about fall is vintage shopping.  Getting out to local antique festivals, thrift stores and quaint rows of shops to find that special treasure makes me oh so happy.  So, when I came across this Vintage Copper Tea Kettle for $12, I knew it had to come home with me.  Made in England of copper, brass & wood, all it needed was a good cleaning to make this guy tea time ready!
What vintage fall finds are you currently on the lookout for?

31 Weeks Pregnant | Twins

Whew!  We made it through 31 weeks and boy has it been a bit of a doozy!  After my last pregnancy post, we had been so fortunate with a primarily uneventful twin pregnancy...now 2 hospital stays later, an order to be on a non-bedrest, bedrest and a new appreciation for keeping these babes "in the oven" for as long as possible, has us, once again, counting our blessings and feeling oh so lucky!
While this past month brought on its fair share of apprehensions and fears, I can honestly say, that I'm now so excited to meet these two little ones!  Our current goal is to make it to the 34 week mark along with a minimum weight of 5lbs each.  Each day currently feels like a mini-victory and each week makes this mama-to-be breath a big sigh of relief!  I swear this bump is growing daily (which means the babies are growing!!!), but if this keeps up, this bump is going to need its own zip code...I mean, look at this thing!
So, you better be sure I'll be documenting this bump over the next few weeks ~ who knows when it will be my last pregnancy pic?!  And speaking of documenting, how incredibly cute are these Printable Weekly Pregnancy Signs from Bella Carta Boutique!!  They're perfect for those weekly bump photos, or like I plan to use them for, would make a great addition to your pregnancy journal/scrapbook.
Well, I'm off to another doctor's appointment, these days they have me there a few times a week.  Fingers crossed these babies are putting on some serious weight!  In the meantime, thanks again for all your support, patience & encouragement as we make it through this pregnancy!  xo

Chevron Herringbone Accent Wall

Last week we shared our twin nursery progress and many of you asked about our wood accent wall.  We were super pleased with how it turned out and even more excited that the total cost came in right under $40!  The hardest part was deciding on measurements, once that was taken care of, the cutting and install were done rather quickly and pretty straight forward to execute.  Making this Chevron Herringbone Accent Wall an easy DIY!

Back to School Party

With summer almost over and the air turning cool, it's obvious that's it's time to go back to school!  Every fall, memories of back to school shopping along with afternoon snacks take me back to those crisp fall days. What better way to bring the nostalgia back than by throwing a Back To School Bash for your friends or a Back to School Party for your school aged children.  These simple ideas and fun Wheel & Basket finds will get any child excited for the start of a new school year!

Blogger Stylin' Home Tours | Favorite Room Edition

Yah!  It's BSHT week and I'm loving getting an insider's look at some of my favorite bloggers' favorite spaces!  If your coming over from DIY Showoff, welcome!  And if you're just joining in on the fun, I have the full list of tours at the bottom of this post.  When Lindsay from The White Buffalo Styling Co. asked me to share my favorite room, it was an easy answer.  For those of you new to Iron & Twine, Brian and I are expecting twins ~ you can see our announcement here, our gender reveal here and my most recent pregnancy update here.  
The nursery has become a labor of love and while it's by no means finished, it's the memories we've made creating it and the memories we'll make with the little ones that make this room my favorite.  We still have a door to paint, another door to install, a changing table DIY to complete, curtains to finalize on, picture ledges to hang, artwork to display and this rug to be delivered.  But with any project it's always a work in progress...this one we're determined to finish before the twins arrive!  So without further ado, here's where we currently are in the nursery progress and in an Iron & Twine first, we made a video :)
