// ONE I still can’t get enough of coral lately, and this cross body bag could be that perfect pop of color over your winter neutrals // TWO the designer at onefortythree is killing me with his collection of brass sconces, I am obsessed with this shaded sconce, obsessed! // THREE I’ve made many poufs in my day to save a buck or two, but these poufs from Target are a STEAL! I think I like this one the best // FOUR we all need just one pretty, simple, black & white vase in our collection // FIVE if the velvet looks this luxurious in a photo, imagine how amazing it must be in person! Throw two of these on your bed and you just welcomed Spring, and Summer!
I’m SO looking forward to this weekend. The first week of every month for an accountant blows. Sometimes I’m better prepared for the busy week than others, but with my dad going thru recovery I’ve pretty much spent every night with him at the hospital. I’m happy to say he’s finally going home today! The surgeons had to do some crazy things to him to scoop out all that cancer in his throat, including splitting his jaw in half from the front (JEEZE right?). I am happy to report he’s swallowing, talking, drinking water, and is very energetic for all the crazy crap he had to go thru to be cancer free.
What are you up to this weekend? Anything fun?
// ONE Big news! Nanette Lepore now has a home line full of the many colors and materials that make her fashion line so desirable. I just adore this embroidered botanical pillow, the tassels had me at hello. // TWO I wanted to share this pendant with you today because it seem so hackable. Take a brass bowl, a lamp kit and a cute wood bead of sorts and you have yourself a copycat. // THREE Wall hooks are always a must, in the entryway or in your bedroom. I adore these marquee hooks from Anthro, don’t you? // FOUR I dont know if you know but almost everything in the Jonathan Adler line for JC Penny is upwards of 50% off right now, including this lamp! Imagine it in a baby girl nursery, totally cute. // FIVE You may have seen this tufted beauty floating around Pinterest this week. I couldn’t help but share it today.
TGIF!!! I have a crazy busy weekend ahead – a baby shower, a birthday party, and a family dinner. I hope I can squeeze some fun blog things, like photographing the midcentury swivel chair I’m working on. I have a couple other fun projects up my sleeve, catch the sneak peeks on my IG feed as they won’t be fully revealed for a couple weeks. How’s that for some calculated suspense?
Have a great weekend!
// ONE Yep, melon tones are still on my mind. I am fully convinced I need to add this coral velvet pillow to my absurd collection of throw pillows // TWO A faceted pendant light, yes please! // THREE I adore these jewelry boxes from Target, I actually gave a bunch away as Christmas gifts this year. Kept one or two for myself. Total nightstand candy. // FOUR how classy would you feel tucking these gold embossed cowhide coasters under your glass of water? // FIVE let’s drool together over this slouchy rose gold metallic satchel, I would wear this day and night, and cradle it in my sleep.
Oh boy, I’m SO glad it’s Friday. It’s been one of those work weeks that I couldn’t wait to end. On the bright side, I have so many projects going on at once right now. This weekend I plan to finish some of them up to share with you next week. Horray!
// ONE Plant stands are new to me. Scratch that, I should say PLANTS are new to me! Anyway, after spotting these plant stands I’m thoroughly convinced I need all my plants (that have survived) to be placed on said pedestal. Like a trophy. Because it hasn’t yet died. Get it? // TWO The perfect salad bowl. Enough said. // THREE DVF + beautiful bone china? Too bad I didn’t see this line when I was registering for wedding china. // FOUR I’m crushing on shades of melon lately, and these coral boxes from OKL are tugging at my heart strings // FIVE One day I’ll have a kitchen counter that needs stools. These stools to be exact. I’m obsessed with them, they give a nod to mid-century, a nod to the vintage lover, and a nod to that something rustic that every house needs. They’re the perfect stool for any style of home, and this I like.
It’s raining here this weekend! California is very happy. Sorry for all you folks in snow or worse weather. I’m just excited to be forced indoors and work on projects Maybe go see the movie my husband wants to see so bad (Frozen, go figure). I married a big kid.
// ONE It’s probably a faux pas for mixing metals in a Friday faves post, but i don’t care! This pendant light is oh so fab, and not too bad on the wallet I must admit! // TWO Still not sure if I can embrace the color of the year, but maybe in a hot pink shade of velvet I’d cave. What about you? // THREE I’m trying to find a reason to buy this stool, please help me find one! // FOUR oh my lucite! How gorgeous is this acrylic console table? Too bad it’s soooo expensive // FIVE has copper caught your attention yet? I remember being in London this past summer and reading about the copper rage in Europe. I’m so happy to see it’s catching on here! I’m absolutely adoring this line of copper desk accessories, at Anthro EU of course
Have a fantastic weekend friends!
// ONE Everything in the Nate Berkus line is so terribly tempting, and this black and white throw blanket at Target is calling my name. I just might have to swing buy on my way home and buy it. Wouldn’t it look perfect in my factitious (yet soon to be real!) nursery? I think so too. // TWO If you’re anything like me and love to rock the bling-iest of bling on your wrist and neck, you need this deco bracelet. Scratch that, I need this deco bracelet // THREE dang it, why weren’t these gold foil numbers available when I needed them for my wedding? Oh, and good news, these are a billion times cheaper than anything at Paper Source // FOUR remember our obsession with brushstroke art? West Elm is inspiring us again with these brushstroke pillows, although I anticipate more DIY Fails with brushstroke art pillows. Let’s save ourselves the embarrassment and buy these beauties // FIVE I need this adorable leather handled basket to corral those cute West Elm pillows
Have a fantastic weekend everyone! I’ll be soaking up even MORE Cali sun in San Diego this weekend, visiting some girlfriends and getting a solid dose of babies. So exciting, my list of pregnant friends are already popping!
PS: Did you notice I posted 5 times this week?? Nuts! And remember that gold zebra rug I’ve been teasing you with for like 6 months? I might just have the tutorial for you next week!
// ONE A crazy weird fringy pillow from Nate Berkus for Target? I’m down // TWO I think I found a new favorite basket for my non-existent indoor trees! I’m growing fiddles from scratch (Ha! The DIY version, because clearly my local home improvement stores and Ikeas don’t care about our fiddle needs on the west coast). Anyway, in 5 years when my fiddle is a few feet tall I imagine it sitting in this basket of perfection // THREE The Capri Blue candle is one of my all time FAVORITE candles. Leave it to Anthro to pour this delicious wax into beautiful vessels like this vintage copper container. I literally die. // FOUR I’m totally loving this white washed bowl, which comes in two sizes, as an individual bowl and a salad sized bowl. There are serving utensils in the same wash, the entire set is clearly a must have // FIVE I always have trouble storing wine in a stylish manner. We typically have a lot more than 7 bottles on hand at any given moment which gets tough when storage is lacking. We end up with our wine in our closets! One day I’d love to live a simple life using something like this darling acacia rack.
So yeah, it’s Friday again, how did that happen? That’s OK, I love bringing you my list of this week’s favorite finds, next week should be less busy!
Have a great weekend!
// ONE The new year always has me itching for a new tote or purse, something refreshing and clean. I’m loving this color-block fold-over tote from Fossil, it’s so sophisticated without being too overwhelming // TWO If you’re looking for some affordable cage lights, I’VE FOUND THEM! And of course, they’re at Target // THREE Target’s Threshold line kills me. I’m so smitten with this cream & bronze tufted bench. My goodness, right?// FOUR I spot some new items from Ikea! Check out this adorable shelf unit, all white and clean and quite affordable // FIVE Cali is completely void of rain so far this winter, but rumor is Feb will be a non-stop pour. If it’s raining near you, you definitely need this adorable clear tulip umbrella to keep from getting soaked
Have a great weekend folks!
// ONE Ikea finally figured it out and made a normal sized version of their stunning Stockholm walnut veneer dining table. I just might have to do some serious convincing of my husband that we need this table when we move into our next place // TWO a classic twist on the highly demanded brass lamp, West Elm knows how to do it right // THREE Jewelry boxes were the hit gift this holiday season, a lady can never have enough. I’m absolutely loving this crystal box, also from West Elm // FOUR I always try to remind myself that less is more, and when it comes to serving trays, this walnut tray (also from Ikea) is the essence of perfect simplicity // FIVE Not sure if I’m a fan of Pantone’s color of the year for 2014, but I am a fan of this plum velvet sofa!
I’ve been putting in some quality time and effort on my resolutions for this year. I’m really excited about them! I’ll be sharing them next week! And, just maybe, a baby bump update
Have a great weekend!
TGIF! YAY we made it thru another week! Boy, where has the time gone? I put my head down at work, looked up and now we’re less than 2 weeks to Christmas?! UGH. And please forgive me for being a bad blogger, Christmas is my favorite time to craft, but this season has been straight up nuts.
I’m still shopping for Christmas gifts, which has led me to some pretty amazing picks for this weeks faves. OK so maybe they’re all on my wish list, so what?
// ONE I seriously need this darling horse lamp in my future nursery, whether it’s a boy or girl (we find out in a week! WOOT!) // TWO ah dang it! I’m totally kicking myself for donating my old ratty globe. This chalkboard painted globe… man, it’s just so perfect. // THREE someone has taken color blocked utensils to a whole new level with these serving spoons, my goodness they’re so good // FOUR I think this blue buffalo check scarf is for dudes, but that wouldn’t stop me from sportin’ it with any shirt that covers my pregnant belly // FIVE Tory Burch is speaking my love language with these metallic boots, do you think I could get away with a DIY version? Ok you’re right, probably not.
Well, have a fantastic weekend everyone! Oh, and just for fun check back tomorrow (yes Saturday!) for a peek at our holiday card! It’s kinda cute, not gonna lie
