Happy Friday y'all!

Tomorrow is the unofficial start of our college football season, so we're heading up the mountain with Sydney in her cute App State cheerleading outfit.  Can't wait to introduce her to our alma mater!

So, last weekend, while Sydney and I were out to lunch with a friend, Steven hit up a local auction and did pretty well!  First, he picked up this free-standing compass.

Brass + wood = love.  Also, isn't that wood inlay chevron frame fab?  I found it at Michael's a while back.

I'm not really sure what this next thing is, but it seems nautical to me.  It's some kind of telescope thing with a compass on the bottom.  Whatever it is, it's cool.

After lunch last Saturday, I hit up Hobby Lobby and found some curtain panels for $15 each.  I picked up two thinking I would use them in the living room because I'm SO tired of the red and brown curtains up there, but they were too thin and just didn't look right.  I was going to take them back, but I figured I would try them in the basement first and I'm glad I did!

Those two windows have been curtain-less since before we put the tile floor down there.  I took them down to wash them and they shrank like crazy so that when I put them back up, they were major high-water curtains!  Note to self: always wash and dry your IKEA curtains before hemming them.

But I think these gray ones add a ton of warmth and bring in some other gray tones we have going on.

So what are you doing this weekend?  Anyone else kicking off football season?  I can't believe it's almost fall but I'm SO HAPPY just thinking about it.  Every now and then these days we'll have a cool breeze that takes me straight to October and I get butterflies in my stomach.  Anyone else crazy excited about falling leaves and pumpkins?!
