Antler attack...

If only I had jumped on the deer trend sooner I could have snagged antlers until prices jumped through the roof. I am in love with these mounted and hung on high dramatic walls.

Something is fishy.

Loving these fish block prints made from actual fish painted then the design is transferred onto paper. Reminds me of the beach...hmmm???

Diamonds on the soles of her shoes.

My very first crave or save...and I think it's worth it. These Mui Muis are a whopping $900

Miu Miu ankle booties

and the Steve Maddens are just shy of $200. My view is that there should not be glitter on the soles of anyones shoes (especially booties) and anyone that wears these has way too much moolah.....and on that note a song for the road.

Soft surroundings...

Oh how I love this chair, and considering how much my little pooch loves lounging on my sheep rug I know where she would be sitting.

Orange you glad....

I am currently lusting after this vintage Hermes tray featured in Olivia Palermo's humble abode. Thankfully I manage to track the exact piece down at First Dibs........Sadly Hermes does not come cheap. $850 later I could have the overpriced tray table. No thanks, but hey a girl can dream.

Sparkle and fade...

I desperately need some new chairs for the old living room and something neutral like this would most definitely suffice. Completely subltle with a little sparkle...shine on.

I want to get away...

Someone needs the sand and the sun. This dreary, grey city is getting to me sooner rather than later am I am loosing have lost my summer glow. My fortune even suggested I would be on vacation near great water soon!

Dog days are over.

The horses are you better come.... Inspired by a little Eat, Pray, Love, Florence and the Machine and my love for my pooch today! I adore this wallpaper for a smallish space.

Mirrors came to mind as I was reflecting on my past year of searching, changing, moving and wondering if every decision I made fit into my plan. As much as you look into a mirror you cannot really change what you see and as I made every decision without looking back I have to trust that they are all for the best....they will all lead in the right and good direction. Here's to new paths and new directions.

Fools rush in.

Are you one of the fools that will rush in for Missoni for Target. I thought I might avoid it, but the home goods and office supplies have me tempted. Racked leaked the whole 400 item spread. I know where I will be September 13.

Vote for Pedro.

Yep, I'm bringing the Napoleon Dynamite reference back because I am so enamored with this little pup. Pedro belongs to none-other than Mrs. Emerson and is a precious little maltapom or pomapoo. So cute, so tiny, but I do love my little Carly Simon! Not trading her for the world :) She is the bees knees and no human could ever be that excited to see me. For sure!

A tale of Twain...

Decisions....decisions. I made some tough decisions eight and a half months ago and I am faced with some even tougher ones. At the end of the day I am thinking about the future, the risk, the reward, and the past.....what will my final answer be....
.........and in twenty years one year what decision will I be most happy with. Where do I go from here?

Falling up.

Hello, fall, I am officially ready for your arrival. Cool air, sweaters, boots.....oh yeah and the ability to walk my dog without becoming a puddle of sweat. P.S. Please hurry up and get here. I can't wait any longer.

Choose change.

My thoughts for today regarding decisions I must make.....and in the words of my Mom, "We never know what decision will be right, if Carly knew the stick was going to make her puke she wouldn't have eaten it." Here are some more eloquent examples...but for now I'm going with my gut.

This Is Not Ikea (TINI). Once in a while Ikea comes along with a piece that really pops...and this chandy does just that. Painted gold it pops in Amy Butler's home.

Oh the thinks you can think.....

Thinking of good design has been therapy as of late and my big fat brown couch and it's factory cushions have been staring me down. I texted in reinforcement to ask if the cushions of death could be recovered. My seamstress and Mom said yes, thankfully....and then I found this: oversize lumbar pillow. My couch may be far from deep enough to house such massive fluff but I am considering.......

Who needs sleep?

Wishing and hoping and thinking and praying is precisely what I'm doing rather than sleeping as of late. What have I been doing you may ask.....prepping once again for who knows what. Not sleeping, just thinkign....wondering....waiting....and hoping for some sort of answer as to what the next step is and when it may come. Here's hoping that tomorrow comes quickly and here's to hoping, chewing, breathing, loving and waiting......

I may not be able to do it all, but I can darn sure try!

Monday blues.

Oh Monday, you did not do me right....well quite frankly my entire birthday week did not do me right thanks to a minor sinus infection that turned into a whopping-throw me on the couch-sick for 7 plus days illness (I'm still taking antibiotics!). So here's hoping the rest of the week drastically improves!
