Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! I've been home sick this week, so sorry this is a little late going up.  Let's give a big round of applause to my AWESOMESAUCE guest bloggers this week, shall we?  Tina, LEB, and Jennifer, take a bow!  You ladies are the jam!

Just won this loverly on Ebay for only a hundo-bones.  It's going to be our new bar.  All of our pretty glassware will go in the top half on the shelves behind the pretty glass doors.  We'll keep the desk part folded down and all of our delicious beverages and mixers will be displayed on lovely gold/brass bamboo trays.  And the drawers will be where I store my ever-growing collection of tablecloths and cloth napkins and seasonal serving ware.  I'm in love.

So I first saw this on Pinterest from True Traditional.  And after no success tracking its origins via Tumblr, I did a Google image search and discovered that it was part of the Fall 2011 Deyrolle Pour Opening Ceremony line.  It is now my mission in life to source this fabric for use in my home.  It is too fabulous.  Sleepy little foxies!!!!

Dog-shaming, you make me feel better.  You see, our sweet Ozzie has decided to show his gratitude at being rescued from death row by attempting to destroy my Hanky Pankys and M's dress socks.  No bueno.  This website makes me feel like we're not alone.  And it makes me laugh. A lot.


Bon weekend, my sweets!

My mom has a secretary just like that one and I'm hoping to, ahem, liberate it from her clutches when I buy a home of my own someday. it's a family heirloom from my dad's side and it's just gorgeous.

I am also obsessed with that sweater--I saw it today and I NEED it in blue (and I love the new peacock necklace, too!) And I also just discovered the dog website--I feel like every entry is the story of my life!

My mom just bought me that EXACT secretary at an estate sale. She bought it because we saw the EXACT one in a home decorators magazine (in St. Louis) and this woman had painted it bright red and it was gorgeous. I am trying to track down pics online. Mom is going to get mine painted and I'm thinking teal/Tiffany blue... will let you know!

I checked out that dog website and I love it! Scary to think my dog would be holding the majority of those signs though...lol. If you have a sec, I'd love to hear your thoughts on my latest posts!
