last thursday my dad and i took a little road trip to
we met up with my friend
and set out to scour the fields
much to see
leave without this bar cart
i have a thing for anything teak and mid-century.
plus, i got it for a
we left over-stimulated, with swollen feet and satisfied until september
(i can’t do that july show in full-summer heat)
ok, so i’m the first to admit that i haven’t always been a fan.
for a while there,
bored and annoyed me
(most of it)
especially the navy blue.
i hadn’t found a place to use any of it in our house yet…
my wheels started turning…
thinking maybe for the risers on our staircase?
reid likes the idea in general- he even pointed out a photo in last month’s
this old house
hopefully they’re not too girly?
a little more inspiration…
for where i’d love love love to see those
gorgeous block-printed textiles next!
for asking me to participate!
i’ve had lifefactory’s glass
bookmarked in my “someday” file for a while now
but they’ve just added something that i could certainly use now…
i do love my
, but seeing how much is left in the bottle would be nice too…
one of my new year’s resolutions is to read more.
(more resolutions to come…)
my bedside stack is getting unreasonable and my library requests insane.
in the age of all-digital, i am so drawn to
a book-due calendar! LOVE it….
you can personalize, and keep track of all that you read and aim to every month.
i met catherine, of
, last year at a trade show and i was immediately i was blown away by her gorgeous products, and how
she was. seriously, she’s got it all going on…
not only is she
gorgeous, and unbelievably stylish…
but her line of block printed bedding for children is off. the. hook.
just introduced twin sizes, but i’m still hoping for some full size sets
can you imagine?!?
well, this cool chick has a super chic blog that gives me dreams of glamour, even when i’m blogging from bed in sweats.
so, i was blown away and over-the-top excited when she asked me to participate in her “
5 fab gifts
way back in june, i posted some
suggestions for amanda, about her living/dining/ meeting space in the house she and her husband rent.
well, the room is finally pulled together and, i have to say, a HUGE improvement.
fun and relaxed, but “grown-up” from the college dorm days.
and, definitely presentable enough to meet with clients in.
without further adieu…
from dining looking to living
from entrance looking to living
well done amanda and jeff !
more details about all that they did on amanda’s
man shops globe.
does he need an assistant!?!
