This is it.

I have felt strongly over the past month (and especially week) that I am supposed to give up this blog, so I am. I have enjoyed this creative outlet over the past year and a half, and I am grateful for the growing and supportive readership that I've had here. Thank you for following along. I'm so glad that so many of you out there have felt inspired by A Newfound Treasure. If you wish to continue following my simple little life, you may follow my instagrams: @annaweaver

So long, friends!

Navy Nursery on Design*Sponge

Avery's room is done. 
Whew… that took me long enough. 
I'm honored it was published on Design*Sponge
Go take a look at the before and after feature!

New York

I am so in love with New York City. It is really one of my favorite places ever! And being there at Christmastime was a dream come true. Here is a little insta-recap of some of my favorite things from my birthday getaway:

We took at cab into Manhattan once we arrived and saw those big city lights. 

We ate at The Meatball Shop and followed up dinner with cocktails at Mother's Ruin. Love that place!

We stayed on Bedford in the West Village... the same street that the apartment building from Friends is on. 

Our morning ritual involved a quick stop at Prodigy Coffee

AND... the best bagels I've ever had at Bagels on the Square. 

Stopped through Grand Central Terminal with my love.

I tried on crazy things... like Valentino. This number here made me feel like a rockstar.

Macy's sure does know how to inspire.

I am one happy girl in The Big Apple. Someone pinch me.

This portobello arugula goodness from  may have been my favorite thing.

We were on the 4th row of Thursday night's show with Bill Murray. 

Some tiramisu something from Rocco's...

I love him, and I love this city!

Oh the bagels... 

I stumbled upon DASH and had to go try something on. This fur coat was ridiculous and all kinds of awesome.

We mastered the subway system by day 2. The complexity of it all baffles me... geniuses.

We celebrated my birthday dinner at La Bella Vita Ristorante in Little Italy. 

Stumptown Coffee was the jam.

Rockefeller Center is one magical place!

We took an early ride to Brooklyn and walked the Brooklyn Bridge.  It was cold and foggy but well worth the trek. 

We stayed with 2 girls that I found through We actually had mutual friends, so it wasn't as sketchy as it sounds. One of my weekend roomies works for Shoshanna... so fun. I dragged my husband to this Lucky shopping event in Soho where my girl Samantha was. 

We barely made our flight. Sad to say goodbye to New York & very eager to go back in 2013!
Hope you enjoyed that little glimpse of the trip. There was tons more that we did, but how could I ever cover it all?!

do nothing

Considering I spent 90% of my time in NYC on my feet, walking... I need a day to recover. I am so out of shape. It's not even funny. Thankfully, my husband rubbed my feet every evening after much begging on my part. I married a gem, I tell you... who also firmly believes in birthday months. I've got a good 3 weeks left of milking it for all it's worth.

Our trip to New York was great! I can't wait to share some highlights from my travels with you this week. But for now, I'll put my feet up on the couch. Maybe catch up on some laundry later. Maybe not.

December 8th, baby.

Woo to the hoo. This is my day!

Next Up: With a C.H.

birthday wishing

It's my birthday week, and I can't help but dream up a little wish list of things I'd love to call mine. Get one of each for yourself and make me jealous!

I can't complain. I'll be in New York City come Wednesday, so needless to say, I'll be doing my fair share of shopping.

I'd rather pick out my gifts myself... I'm so dang picky. Anyone with me?

Holiday Table Inspiration

So pretty. Love me some gold and a few simple succulents. 

Friday, November 30, 2012


Tomorrow is the big day! Anyone else excited? I'll be at Target when doors open. I have my eye on the Rag & Bone flask for a certain someone. And can we talk about the Altuzarra glasses and shaker? You can peruse the collection here. I'm calling tomorrow as being comparable to the Missoni collaboration frenzy. Great!

reading list

Over the years, I have really grown to enjoy reading. I love finding new books to love. I am compiling a list of books that I'd like to read in 2013, and I thought I'd first turn to you for guidance. What's your favorite book? What book are you reading now? Dish.

Well, you guys... we have yet another special guest here today sharing her nexts: Jessie from The Long and Short of It. Girl's got style and a killer home that was recently featured on The Everygirl. How cool is that? I love following all of Jessie's projects and fun finds through her blog... as I'm sure you will too!

yes pls.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and weekend... Luckily, we managed to avoid all holiday traffic both to and from Florida. I ate way too much turkey, pie, and those sausage/cheese/croissant things that my sister-in-law made. Basically, I pigged out but have no regrets. :)

I know some of you avoid all Black Friday shopping and wait it out for Cyber Monday. Probably smart of you... I left at 8pm on Thanksgiving night and got home at 7am. Overly tired... not worth it.

I don't have any fabulous 50% off deals for you today, but I do have one of my favorite artists bringing you a hot new gift idea. Lulie Wallace is offering prints and a new textile line.

Half of the print proceeds go to support local non-profits. The beauty above goes to support Palmetto Medical Initiative. My dad is heading to Nicaragua with PMI in less than 2 weeks, so I'm feeling a bit partial.

Go buy up Lulie's snazzy new bags and pillows for everyone in your family. And while you're at it, send me a few yards of fabric that are now available... my wish list is growing by the minute.

I am so blessed. There are far too many things to name, but I do want to drop in and thank YOU for reading along. Thank YOU for being an incredible support system. I am thankful for the many friendships that I have formed through ANT and am grateful for this creative outlet.

Next Up: Peonies & Brass

Today, the sweet Elyse from Peonies and Brass is here to dish what's next for her. I recently happened upon her blog and felt so inspired by many of her posts. I'm sure that you'll feel the same way once  you take a gander for yourself. :) The floor is yours, Elyse!

weekend top 9

1 // Hot drinks and cozy layers are a daily must. I've been rockin' the Lululemon maybe a little too much.
2 // Do you have a baby that sits like mine does? Feet back. I love it.
3 // I usually prefer a wood-burning fire, but our gas fireplace sure is a convenient and quick fix to set the mood.
4 // We drove to Greenville, and Avery finally met the man in our family that he was named after.
5 // I did it. I got rid of my ombré hair. The winter months ahead call for a darker brunette here.
6 // My in-laws took the boys to Florida for a few days. No kids until Thanksgiving means numerous dates with my man. Night #1 was his choice: beer + wings.
7 // I went to Charleston for a girls night out with Julia, Chassity, Natalie, Caycee, Katharine, Erin & Amanda. 
8 // We went to our first oyster roast of the season, and I shucked my heart out.
9 // I enjoyed yesterday's Fall Festival with a cold bev in my hand. Perfect!

How was your weekend?

friday's favorites

Can we talk about how genius Jenny's kitchen cabinets are? I am crazy about how her little space is coming along. You with me?

+ Fingers crossed that I win this beauty!

+ Ever tried these? I recently got together with my girl, Chassity, and she introduced me to them. I honestly don't know how I have survived all of this time without 'em.

+ I have enjoyed perusing the holiday gift guides out there, but this one from Liz tops my list of favorites.

+ I make spaghetti for dinner once every 1 or 2 weeks, so next time it comes through rotation, you can bet I'll be attempting to make marinara sauce from scratch.

+ Thank you to everyone that emailed or messaged me recommendations to make my trip to New York as excellent as possible. I am beyond excited to be walking the streets of NYC in just under 3 weeks... here's hoping it's not too cold for my southern blood.

style & share /// leather pants

We've established the fact that I am loving an edgy look these days, and leather does just that for us. There are so many ways to wear leather pants, and I'm always looking for a new way to style the things that are already in my closet.

Remember my challenge? I had some of you create inspiration outfits to share here today. This is how I would like to wear them next... leather it out, baby!
