I'm so loving my new winged Rometti Vase HERE. Its just the right amount of weird and pretty. Ugly pretty is the new pretty. I think. Im also very happy with this throw I scored on sale at Barney's. The throws are on sale for great great prices...also other stuff like linen napkins, trays etc can be scooped up for a fraction of their original (outlandish) prices. These home sales are awesome because really, does tabletop stuff change that much that a white linen napkin with gold threading will ever be out of style? … [Read more...]

I'm sorry but it was just too good of a match up! They are twins! It scares me a little bit that my painting looks so much like those pants and the way she paired it with a heavy dose of a white top: YES, well those match the chairs.

Between the round painting over the high chair, … [Read more...]

Now that I've gone the route of massive, I don't think I can ever have small paintings there again! I picked these up from the framer on Friday at 4 pm! Talk about crunch time. I'm sitting and drinking my coffee and looking at these babies right now, and smiling because I love them so much. (You can click HERE , HERE  and HERE to see what the apartment looked like with the previous paintings that sold, there are also before and afters and sources listed on those posts.) Anyway, the Junior League House Tour was so much fun yesterday! Honestly, it was kind of bizarre having so many strangers … [Read more...]
