Syroco Mirrors

22 Sep

You all know I can’t pass up a fabulous mirror, so when I saw this Syroco beauty I just had to have it!

And the best part was…it was FREE!!!

It was sitting all lonesome in our shop for months and was screaming for some TLC.

Now for the fun part! What color should I paint this baby?

Here are some options I was thinking


As gorgeous as this is, I think turquoise might be over kill in the living room. I’m pretty much obsessed with blue though.


However I wouldn’t mind a punchy yellow.


Loving the sexiness of a glossy black.


Love the white very chic.

Which color do you vote? Do you prefer it gold or agree with me on painting it?

New Goodies

9 Sep

I went to Home Goods the other day and bought some goodies, thought I’d share them with you.

I have a serious addiction to this store.

Obsessed with this white frame I found for $8!

A furry white pillow to bring some softness to the antique chair in our bedroom.

And my favorite find was this garden stool, I absolutely love it and contemplated buying it for a good 30 minutes while in the store. As you can see I just couldn’t pass it up.

Have you found any new goodies at your favorite store?

Black Lamps

15 Aug

There’s something so sexy about a glossy black lamp. Well at least it is for me. I love them.

A couple weeks ago I scored big with two black floor lamps from Kirkland’s for only $59 each. I was ecstatic!

You might remember me talking about them on this post.

Unfortunately… when I received them they were broken at the base, and not just one but BOTH!! I was now pissed. I sent them back for replacements and was just told by Kirkland’s that they were sold out. WTF is right!

So I’ve been hunting yet again for that perfect black lamp. My options are limited and I’m definitely going to have to spend a lot more money.







These are all so amazing it’s hard to make up my mind. Which one is your fave?

I’m loving these new rugs from Surya by designer Jill Rosenwald.

Don’t you just love a bold rug! I DO!!!

Window Shopping at Home Goods

26 Jul

Sunday I decided to pop on over to Home Goods for a little “window shopping”. I love looking at their decor items and checking to see if they have anything new and worth the buy. I also was on the look out for some new doggies beds, they have the best dog beds…well normally, I didn’t have much luck that day. But I did buy a cabinet for the living room which I’m obsessed with. I’ll be sharing it with you soon.

While you wait for that, here are some items I wish I had the money/space for.

This trash can would be perfect for outside or in a laundry room.

Love these lamp shades. Not so much the bases.

I really wanted to buy this little owl stool.

Adorable nesting tables for only $30!

Love this modern globe.

They had a huge selection of lucite lamps. Love.

I apologize for all the iPhone photos. I really need to start carrying my camera everywhere.

Hope you all enjoyed your “virtual window shopping”

Random Online Store

17 Jun

I find it so bizarre when I come across a random online store, that I’ve never heard of and I find exactly what I’ve been looking for.

So I normally search the basics Etsy, West Elm, Cost Plus, Pottery Barn, Target, Overstock, Z Gallerie. You know, the stores we stalk daily!

So when I came across this table lamp from a blog, I just knew I had to have it.


The online store I found myself purchasing from was Kirkland’s. Weird right? My first thought was, is this owned by Costco?

Well anyways, I’ve found myself including it in my online shopping searches and last night I came across this awesome floor lamp.

It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for in the living room to anchor the sofa.

I must have it.

I love the drum shade and glossy black finish. It reminds me so much of the Z Gallerie lamp I’ve been lusting over but haven’t quite been able to shell out the $300 it costs and this baby is only $99!

Anyways, I guess it pays to check out random online stores, that have a not so pretty website. It’s like seriously, vamp it up!

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND! Shop it up for me ; )


Letter Art

6 Jun

Hi All! Hope your Monday is going well.

We all know the zinc letters at Anthropologie, right?

Well they’re totally cute but at $18 a pop, that just won’t do.

I decided to DIY them by using paper mache letters I got at Joann Fabrics.

I sprayed it pretty heavy so I could get that blotchy uneven look.

And here they are hung up in the kitchen! I used doubled sided tape to attach them to the wall.

Ok next up!  I had Ryan do these, because we wanted to mix two colors together and he’s the best man for that job.

We used these two colors, first he sprayed the top coat in the lighter gold and then lightly sprayed some of the darker gold over it.

Here they are on top of our mantel, I’m obsessed.

I love how using two colors made them look a bit more aged and not so perfect.

This project was so easy and fun, I seriously want to keep going but can’t think of anything else cute to write.

I’m definitely going to do this in the babies room. When the time comes..
