the young and the beautiful


I spotted this adorable little pick me up today over on i suwannee and it totally arrived at just the right time. It’s always best to brain break for cuteness. (mental note to future self: allow your children to be this free)

While perusing for design goodness I also found a giveaway.  These Furbish lovelies, including the inserts, could be yours! Head on over to i suwannee to enter!


back to the kitchen tomorrow. 🙂

kilim textiles

I’ve fallen in love with Kilim textiles and it’s a dangerous kind of love. You know, the kind that makes you do bad things… like make your bank account scream for mercy.These beautiful textiles adorn the most stunning pattern and color, it’s no wonder that their loveliness is taking even the fashion world by storm.

Unsure of what a Kilim is? Here’s a little explanation straight from Wikipedia:

Kilims {Persian} are flat tapestry-woven carpets or rugs produced from the Balkans to Pakistan. Kilims can be purely decorative or can function as prayer rugs. Recently-made kilims are popular floor-coverings in Western households. {you know, like my house}

There are so many beautiful options available at Joss & Main right now! Now what should I make our bank account cry about first?

I started perusing through Lisa Fine Textiles tonight while looking for some work inspiration . . . somehow I just ended up with a colorful wish list.  It’s all hand printed on 100% linen! Check out the prettiness!
