Things I love today

I saw this glass drink pitcher and thought I owed it to you to share. Isn't it awesome? I love the spigot. You can get it right now at Target for only $9.99 (or $11.99, I forget, but it's still cheap)

I love these built-ins. I recently watched an episode of HGTV's Moving Up and the first thing the new owners did was tear out the same built-in cabinets. I thought they were out of their freaking minds. My great aunt had the same ones, with the insides painted a very pretty aqua blue and to this day I still think of them.

See that chandelier that appears to be a bunch of twigs held together? Well I love it, and I want to make one. I mean, I am going to make one. Somehow.

It really makes me sad that this woman doesn't appear to be happy wearing this dress. Because you know if I was wearing it? Yeah, I'd be grinning my fool little face off.


Of course these are Monique Lhuillier, which explains why I love them.

Perhaps now that I have a sewing machine I can hit paydirt making this thing, because, is it not just the best?

I'm really into Kelly green these days. 

I can't figure out how to make it work in my own home right now though, because I really only have 3 rooms. Even though the kitchen, dining, living room and office have their own rather distinct space, they're still in the same room as far as visual congruency is concerned.

I pretty much have to have this aqua pillow with the birdies on it. If I don't get it, I might cry or die and that would be sad.

This week is crazy busy with projects, painting and the usual stuff that I can't seem to get enough of. What's inspiring you these days? Feel free to answer with a link to your favorite blog or image. We love blogs and images around here.

Wishing you vintage white chippy paint
