5 Black and White Obsession 2014 Blog Redesign, Grand Tour

Another season of Blogging conferences is upon us-- eek Snap! is in just a few days!! Picture me scrambling like a mad woman-- which means that Black and White Obsession got a teeny-tiny makeover. Alright, I totally realize this is quite a bit delayed since everything officially went at the end of March, but better late than never right?!

As usual, let’s begin with a Style Guide for the entire site:

2 #thriftscorethursday Cruet Decanter Bottle Set + Visor Beanie

How the heck is it already Thursday?! I guess I’ve been eyeballs deep in projects for Snap! (blogging conference) next week. Anywho, let’s get this party started #thriftscorethursday style!

If y’all don’t know the drill by now as in you’re just stopping by for the first time... Welcome I’m so glad to have ya! Brynne from The Gathered Home, Megan from Rental Revival, and I scour our thrift stores, auctions, estate sales looking for fantastical pieces to use in our homes. Sometimes we shed a tear and walk away. Other times we admire the courage on outrageously hysterical pieces.

My favorite part is when YOU play along with us by hash tagging your thrifty find via #thriftscorethursday on Instagram or #thriftscorethursday on Twitter. Your photos gain more drool-worthy fans when others scouring the hashtag. Maybe one or all of the hostess will fall for your piece too and feature your photo the following week on our blogs!

1 Powerful Weekend Storm Tears through Our Neighborhood

This past weekend, our little town- or should I say street was shaken up by a funnel, tornado, or ‘downbursts’ (we weren’t sure because thankfully we weren’t home). Luckily everyone in our neighborhood was safe and our street only suffered somewhat minor damage.

We had heard through a friend of ours that there was a funnel cloud spotted near our home. We weren’t home at the time but he sent us the above picture.

Thinking little of it as we drove home (through some blinding strong rain). As we pulled up, immediately I noticed a pine tree down in our yard.
