Holiday Shopping Guide!

5

  UPDATED: 12/5/13! I recently sent some friends an e-mail with things I bought (or will be buying) for my holiday gift list. Then Monica from Wired Momma asked if she could feature it on her blog. THEN I thought, “wait a minute…I have a blog, and back when I was actually writing stuff on…

Wish List for July 16, 2012

Feeling pink and gold today… Inspired by this blazer/jacket I think: And isn’t it great with that Anthro necklace? I’ve been a longtime reader (i.e. lurker) of Erin Gates’ blog, Elements of Style. And she has recently teamed up with a friend to start a line of blazers. The label is Two Penny Blue, and…

Jessie Lauren Online Boutique

A little over a month ago (right before my unplanned blogging hiatus), I found a brand new blog, Jessie Lauren. Jess is a cute, young Aussie with a background in the fashion industry and fabulous taste. And her posts promised the imminent launch of a new online shop. Since I was working on something similar,…

John Derian for Target

Have you see John Derian’s new line for Target? I found a few items that I wouldn’t mind picking up… I especially love that last one – the marbling effect has kind of a Klimt thing going on, don’t you think? The designer lines for Target are so much fun! I just perused the new…

Hello pretty things blog! Has it really been almost two weeks? You have been sorely neglected… But I do have something lovely to make up for the absence. I found the Carson & Co. site on Annechovie last week and I would just love to own one of their lamps. How gorgeous are these: They…

Guest Post: Karen from I Don’t Think Prada is the Answer They’re Looking For…

I’m on vacation this week and asked a few friends to fill in for me. Today’s guest is Karen from I Don’t Think Prada is the Answer They’re Looking For… I’m not sure where I first found her…but I do know that I loved the name of her blog (even if I didn’t immediatly recognize…

A Lasting Impression

I saw this image the other day (sorry – can’t remember where): …and I immediately grabbed a link to Timothy Whealon Interiors. As I clicked through his portfolio images, I was struck by the subtle elegance of his work. Sure – he had plenty of brighter palettes for different clients, but it seemed like each…

Candace Bushnell’s Living Room

Did you see this article? I love Candace Bushnell’s books – something that I wouldn’t have necessarily expected – and I’m absolutely crazy about her living room. As elegant as her writing style for character development, these rooms are a breath of fresh air in what I find to be a rather “either/or” (contemporary/traditional) design…

Inlay Love

I’m in love with these inlay pieces from Graham and Green: Inlay furniture reminds me of antiques in my parents’ house. I don’t know if I ever really noticed them all those years ago… Isn’t funny how we take things for granted when we’re young?

KaarsKoker Candle Sleeve Covers

I recently discovered the work of April Pride Allison on La Dolce Vita. She’s the founder of KaarsKoker, a line of candle sleeve covers. And I was charmed by the designs which range from classic elegance to whimsical fancy: Something to consider for my own little chandelier…
