I consider myself very lucky to have friends that let me drag them around town and pose for pictures. It was a beautiful day and Chance and I couldn't resist taking advantage of it! As we walked around downtown, we'd occasionally stop for a photo op. These are my favorites from the day.
It's almost impossible to turn down anything for $7. I came across this bust and didn't really look twice at it because of the horrible faux finish, but then I saw the price tag and instantly thought that I could paint it! I'm not a big fan of spray paint projects because they usually look cheap, but since this bust cost less than $10, I was willing to try.
You probably noticed I've been away for a couple of weeks, especially if you follow my Instagram (it's cool if you don't yet, follow me @heycolbykern). Twice a year, work takes me to High Point market in North Carolina...more about that later. This time I was honored to be treated to a wonderful day trip to the infamous Biltmore Estate. Wow. Wow. Wow.
I'm not quite sure why, but I've been wanting a picture of Jesus for awhile. Maybe it reminds me of my childhood, a nice little nod to my private christian school days. Plus, lets face it, Jesus is a pretty cool dude. When I came across a whole wall of the almighty son, I knew I had to have one. Seeing the $15 price tag on the largest one made my decision easy. Once I got it home, I painted the frame black and hung it above my bar cart in my kitchen. Anyone who knows me can attest to my love of irony, and this just seems right to me.
We all love Instagram, I'm pretty obsessed myself. I've met some pretty inspiring people through Insta, and I always find new people to follow and be inspired by. Sometimes people ask me what my favorite accounts are, and so I thought I'd share a few of them here. These people are definitely worth checking out and showing some love...
