Starting a Collection

I'm starting a collection of globes to help offset the mammoth desk in the office. I was inspired by some of these pics...but I don't know where they came from! Bad blogger! If they are yours, let me know! I got the two bigger globes at Good Will. The cream one at a cute shop in Snohimish and the smallest one on Etsy!

New Restoration Hardware

Am I the only one that isn't completely in love with some of the new items at Restoration Hardware? I completely swooned when they first switched it up to Belgian vibe...but now some of their pieces are a little over the top for my taste. Don't get me wrong, I love a lot of their new pieces as well, but the pillars and some of the other Baroque pieces just don't do it for me. Anyone else feel that way?

5 minute shopping spree...

Ran to Snohomish for literally 5 minutes today. Popped into Faded Elegance and didn't want to leave empty handed. Purchased this urn print. I think Todd needs one for his side of the bed too. :)

Craigslist Finds..that will be mine.

Picking these up shortly. I think some white paint on the pink one would be perfect for my imaginary child's room. Not sure what to do with the other one. Thoughts? Suggestions?

Trying it out...

Finally got around to hanging the sign I got at Barn House. Not sure if I'm in love with it there or not. Tried hanging a deer head above. It might be making a move to the guest bathroom. :)

I need your opinion.

So for my birthday, I got something that I have been wanting for a long time. A fleabag! Super excited. But when it finally was a bit bigger than I expected. I should have looked at the dimensions. My bad. And it is still a great bag, don't get me wrong...but I wanted to use it as a purse. Does it look too big for everyday use? The other problem I had with it is the buckles. I kind of thought they were faux. Now you don't have to use them to keep the bag shut...but I think they look a little messy with them undone. Again, GREAT fault of the company..I just should have read the fine print a little better. Do you think I should return it? I LOVE the way it looks. I just can't make a decision to save my life.


Congratulations to Polka Dot Pear--send me your info! :)

Yummy Cake, Dirty Kitchen

But when it's your birthday, you shouldn't have to clean! :) I'll be 30 in exactly a year! Todd and I decided we'll start talking about a baby then. I told him to be ready. I don't know if I'll be ready--but he needs to prepare himself! :)
