Meanwhile my 3 year old is putting paper in the wood stove, the fire wasn't going, but the roll of bathroom tissue {sounds better than the other word} that he put in has made a roaring fire. Sigh....
Thanks Kasey for calling and making my day seem normal {whatever that is, hee-hee}

Darcy had a moment last night and was desperate and headed to Wal-mart. {she was des--perate to head to Wal-mart let me tell ya!}
She found ranunculus flowers & that helped..................

Happy Friday..............

Anthropologie Love

picture anthropologie

Kara visited her first Anthropologie in the winter of 1998. I was with a group of gals in L.A. and
after many missed turns {no GPS} and almost giving up we found this store in Santa Monica.
Needless to say it was our favorite shop as never before was "home" things mixed with fashion.
We were in Loooooooo-ve!
Those of you who follow Anthropologie and the stories behind their vision know their talent lies in the never- ending details!

Our vision coming soon.........Spring!!!

Monday = {laundry day}

favorites {we're dreaming}
Asko's seamless fit washer & dryer
perfectly hidden away

Now this we love a commercial laundry basket! Wood base with wheels. Maid does not come with cart {sorry}!! It is rather grande, but we were thinking you could throw laundry in here then sort it.
Now that calls for Asko seamless fit washer & dryer for sure...........

Happy folding! {it's the putting away that is bo-ring!}

We Couldn't Stay Away!

Thursday, March 5, 2009

We're loving these lights, they are lined with mirrors! The lighting designer was inspired by the zinc pendants he spotted in a Italian village bakery.

Our striking Verona Pendant is lined with mirrors that amplify the light from its bulb, creating focused lighting ideal for reading, working or entertaining. Aged brass stems and fittings are bead blasted for a matte finish, and meticulous hand painting gives the iron shades the exact look of zinc, without the weight. Use with a filament bulb or clear utility bulb. 19" diam., 12.5" h; 6' chain. {Pottery Barn's description}
