Autumn Reigns


Here in Southeast Kansas we've had four days of autumn rains.  It is two of my favorites combined into one.  I love being curled up in blankets, enjoying a cup of hot tea, listening to the rain fall on our roof.  This is the sort of stuff that inspires me.  So I made a little autumn playlist today. I hope you enjoy.

One more thought before I leave you tonight.  Don't you just love it when a picture transports you somewhere.  That's how I felt about this picture.  It is from a tumblr feed I also find inspiring.  Go check it out.

Happy Autumn Everyone!

Three Years.


 And here we are, gathered together again three years later.  I like to think that during this little moment, you and I are once again gathered together under the white lights, rain gently falling from the sky, laughing, dancing, enjoying mexican food and drinks from a coffeehouse.  Yes, three years ago was magical.  Dane and I agreed to forever do life together and you all agreed to support us in that.  It truly was a holy and beautiful day.

But I think what we took from our day, is the love that surrounds us.  We have the joy of doing life with some of the most amazing people...back then and even now.  So here are a few pics that haven't been shared on the world wide web yet, but definitely need to be seen!  

 So here we go, on to year four.  I am so blessed to do life with you Dane Wutke.  It is nothing short of adventurous and exciting!  I can't wait for the bright beautiful future!

Hello Sailor. Christy's October Picks


Well, its October. Officially my favorite month of the year.  It's only day 2 and has already been fabulous.

What have I loved about the past two days:
- On my drive to KC I was intoxicated with the colours of the trees surrounding me
- My Royals are in the postseason. Intently watching the first game tonight!!!
- It has rained all day.  The smell in the air is just delicious.
- I met my new little friend Daxton Krizan.  He da bes!
- Breaking out the scarves as the cooler weather rolls in.
- And then this...all the great new stuff in store this month at Hello Sailor.  Here are my in store picks for October.

 I'm a sucker for a good vintage clock and we have about 30 in store this month!  Be still my heart.

 I can't say no to anything that is industrial and has compartments.  
These are HUGE wire baskets.  They would be great for shoes, winter scarves/hats/gloves. Adorable with gourds and pumpkins.  Perfect for corralling blankets in a living room.  Fabulous next to a fireplace with fresh cut logs.  You get the picture.
This industrial work bench.  
 This bead board table is 8 feet long.  I think long tables are the best.  And these amazing chairs.
 They are so simple to create.  I tell ya what, I need to own a table saw so I can create these sorts of goodies.
 Old Milk Jug Baskets.  The green handles make me happy.
 This table is narrow and would be perfect behind a sofa or in front of a window.  Super cute and I love the lower shelf.

 This light is absolutely stunning.  You just need to see it in person.
 I am in love with this collection of wooden bowls.  I love the idea of filling them with succulents.
 Loving this cat ring holder.  I've been looking for great ways to organize my rings, but in order to hold all of mine, its tail would have to go to the ceiling!
 We have every letter of the alphabet in store this month, and they light up, two of my favorite things combined into one!

 My philosophy: If you are a piece of furniture with wheels, you automatically become fabulous.
 Wooden base lamp.
 Solid Brass Buck.

And finally this wonderfully colourful world map.  

There you go, my picks from Hello Sailor this month.  You can see more of our items in store over on our blog or on our facebook page!
