24 Feb

Ok I have to share this with you guys.

I was browsing Pinterest on Wednesday and came across this gorgeous picture.

Can you believe she scored that sunburst mirror for $35!?

And from Home Depot, of all places. craziness.

Anyway, I rushed to Home Depot the same day and picked it up. I just had to have it for the babies room, and you know I can’t pass up a gorgeous sunburst mirror plus a good deal!

Want one too? Buy it here

Overstock & Foo Dogs

16 Dec

I got a couple more pieces for the bookcase.

Like these amazing filigree urns from Overstock

IMG_8775

love them!

love the price even more, compared to this similar one found at Z Gallerie

I mean yaaaa they aren’t porcelain but who really cares, and no one will ever know when they’re placed so high up. Well except for you guys…shhh!

Also got these adorable foo dogs for $48 on eBay

I’m loving the pop of color they bring.

Have a great weekend!

the bookcase reveal

9 Dec

Yep! That’s right! We finished the bookcase, you know the one I scored for $60 off craigslist.

it was pretty ugly but I saw past that and really liked the “parsons” feel it was giving off. It’s also extremely sturdy and quite heavy, which is great because I can’t stand flimsy particle board furniture.

So with a little paint love from the husband and a little decorating from me, I’m now pretty much obsessed with this baby.

I love that I finally have a place to display some of my books and knick knacks. I picked up this white frame from Home Goods recently and I filled my ikat bowl from Anthropologie with seashells we collected in Costa Rica on our honeymoon.

Drink time!

I picked up this decanter for my husband for all his hard work, he loves a good glass of scotch once in awhile.

and of course you can’t have a manly drink of scotch without a sparkly gold glass to hold it in.

Adore.

You might remember from the previous post that I had planned to add a dark gray back and possibly some O’verlays to the sides. But for now I’m actually really loving the airiness of it, I like that you can view the pieces from any angle. Oh and if you’re wondering what color we painted it, because you know white can be pretty tricky. We decided to go with our trim color that we used throughout the house, which is an old formula called C2 L2 by Benjamin Moore. I love this white.

Finally I have a place to display our wedding album and even my wedding shoes. I also ordered an acrylic display box to showcase them even more.

the view from our hallway mirror. love.

I just love this mercury glass decanter, another great piece I picked up at Home Goods.

IMG_8716

I still plan to add some artwork to the top of it, as well as some bright turquoise foo dogs for a pop of color.

IMG_8721

Hope you guys love it as much as I do. I’m really so happy about the end result, not to mention the price. Gotta love Craigslist!

special thanks to the husband!

nothing I love more than a handy man

Antique Faire fun

5 Dec

Hey peeps! Hope you all had a fab weekend.

Yesterday my bestie Melissa and I hit up the Alameda Point Antiques Faire

AlamedaPointAntiquesFaire_W-018_fs

Love this place! This is my third time going and It’s so much fun, if you are interested it’s every first Sunday of the month. Bring lots of cash and wear comfortable shoes, because it’s exhausting but there are so many awesome finds.

I was on the lookout for a antique bar cart, brass bamboo tray, antlers, and any other yummy finds.

My bestie scored big! She found an awesome chandelier, vintage metal basket, a gorgeous trellis pillow and black antique chair.

I on the other hand am a bit picky on where I spend my money. As much as I love everything and would buy everything at the faire. I have to be realistic on what would work in the amount of space we have in our little home.

But I am very happy with my little finds, like these awesome antlers

IMG_8648

and these cute little gold striped glasses

IMG_8651

IMG_8652

Pretty excited to display these sparkling beauties on the new bookcase.

I also have big plans for the antlers which involve a little can of spray paint.

So has anyone else hit up the Faire lately? Find any goodies?

my homes wish list

30 Nov

Did you know my home has a wish list?

A very long one too! Which I’m sure you all have as well.

If only we had all the money in the world to buy everything we need / want, right?

so here are just a few things on my wish list for the house

lucite

a pretty glass coffee table. I’ve been lusting over this beauty for some time now, and I think I found a pretty good deal on one off eBay.

celerie-kemble-black-and-white

chanel coffee table book

style-and-substance-book

My lonely bookcase will soon need some pretty books to adorn it.

foo dogs

as well as a cute pair of foo dogs

etsy

so true. must have this.

madebygirl

this would look perfect in our bedroom. I love the gold and white.

bench

I know I know it’s freezing outside, but I just love this bench. Seriously been staring at it for over 6 months.

Sometimes I just need to take the plunge on purchases instead of scouring the internet to find the best deal. It’s a serious addiction I have. Good for others but time consuming for me. haha

PS

Hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving, we shared it with great family and friends as well as food…stretched our leftovers out over 2 days, and had another Thanksgiving with friends on Friday. I don’t even want to know what the scale has in store for me.

throw pillow options

9 Nov

Look what I got in the mail today…

IMG_8390

I really wasn’t lying when I said I wanted to redo all my throw pillows in this new gorgeous fabric line by Caitlin Wilson. The hard part is deciding on which pattern.

IMG_8399

IMG_8403

I’m just obsessed with each and every one of these! Ahhh

IMG_8406

Here are the two combinations I’ve narrowed it down to.

IMG_8428

I could stick with my current color scheme of light blue, yellow and gray, Which I still love but I think I might be ready for a change. And if I’m going to purchase all new pillows, I might as well change it up, right?

and now for some ghetto “photoshopping”

yellow combo

IMG_8431

I was really drawn to the navy in this fleur chinoise fabric and there is something so lovely about the pops of pink.

navy combo

But will the husband really let me bring pink into the mix. This might be a little tricky. He’s already told me he feels like he’s living in my house as opposed to our house. poor guy. I tell him do you want to know what your house would look like if you decorated it. Then he gets it.

So now that you’ve seen my options, which one is your fave?
