Monday Blues...

Happy Monday friends!! Hope it was a good weekend for you. 
I am making lots of decisions and progress around my own home and several projects...good times. But I need your help...


Blue floral pillow fabric...who makes it???


It's from the fab Pencil & Paper team..check out their website here...big love.

David Hicks Turkish Flower linen:

I thought it was this fabric, a fav of mine, Turkish Flowers, but on closer inspection I was wrong... I know I have seen it before I just can't track it down, and it's Monday and Mondays are hard so if you could help me out that would be just great!!

Furniture Market & Crazy Pants

Headed to High Point for the Furniture Market. 
Excited and a little scared...
I don't like crowds, it's part of getting older.
Along with the desire to put comfort ahead of fashion - I know, crazy talk.

Hope I get to see these two crazy kids.

Any time there is a chance to leave town you have to plan your outfits and I was thinking something simple, stylish and comfortable. Like this all black tunic dress and flared pants. Throw on a fab necklace and I'm done. Similar look here

Statement necklace here
I am stopping by Anthropologie on my way to High Point and I am going to see how this bad boy looks hanging from my neck.

And you know I am not a red person but this necklace is amazing!! With an all black outfit this would be so dramatic!! (it comers in black but that just doesn't excite me) Would a red person please buy this!! Here

What was I talking about? Oh yeah, my travel outfit... I did NOT end up with an all black sophisticated outfit...far from it...

FP X Agave Embroidered Wideleg

Instead I got some crazy pants. 
But they are comfortable so that counts for something!! Here
If you see me roaming around the market in my giant embroidered pants come say HI. 
Can't wait to report back!!

Books, Wallpaper, Roman Shades...

Did you read Me Before You
Did you want someone to have yellow and black striped tights made just for you? Did you cry like a baby? 
Have you ever wonder what happened to Louisa? 
Well guess what??!! Go on, guess....There's a sequel...yippee!!

It will be available September 29 and you can pre-order here
Let's meet back here on September 30th to discuss!!

Does everyone live like this??? 
I have almost made a decision...can you guess which one?

And finally, the roman shade for my kitchen is done!!
It is hanging proudly in my kitchen and bringing me lots of joy!!
I'll show you a picture once I get a few more things done in the kitchen.

Have a good day!

Furbish Goes to Istanbul

I don't know if you are like me but I would travel the world if I could sleep in my own bed every night. And that puts a small damper on world travel. Thankfully there are others willing to risk lack of sleep so we can all shop...
Jamie from I Suwannee  just returned from Istanbul with trunks full of treasure. Check it out here.



My computer was acting up so I had to borrow these images from The English sure and head over there and check out Holly's fab blog!!!
Happy shopping!!!

Throwback Tuesday

I was going to write a post about symmetry today until I remembered I had already written about 2009. So since I am moving slower than normal today (Tuesdays are hard after a 3 day weekend) I decided to re-post. It's like recycling in the blog world. 

Remember Noah? The guy with the ark? Well, Noah and I have a lot in common. We both love pairs.

Pairs of chairs...
(I hope he doesn't mind that I used his zebras for a pair of pillows)

Pairs of lamps

Pairs of beds.

Two by two...

It just works for me.
As do these pillows. Love that they are the same size and shape but different patterns.

Symmetry. It's a good thing.

When you have pairs you can get away with a little craziness.
A little craziness can be attractive. Just ask Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise. (Or Brad and Angie)

Isn't this just how you pictured the ark looking?
A little rustic, an old earthenware jar, a bit of greenery...

This pair of mirrors makes me very happy.
What about you? Do you favor symmetry or do you like a more random method of decorating?

Vintage Shore Home - Update

What says "Labor Day" more than some shopping? And if you are here in Wilmington I have a great shopping spot for you...Vintage Shore Home.

Turquoise Headboard anyone?

Metal Bamboo chairs?

Dining Set....

I'll tell you it is all good, floor to ceiling.

Things That Make You Go Hmmm...

Looky here...


Am I the only one who finds these chairs oddly fascinating and fabulous??? 
They are around 40 years old, all leather and sit on wooden bases. I could design a whole room around these and pick you out an outfit to wear to complete the look. A lot of style for your $$$. But you've got to have some spunk, these ain't your mama's lounge chairs. 

Happy three day weekend!!
