No really. This is just too much. The Architectural Historian in me is dying over this set of dishes. Honestly, words escape me. The "floors" of each of these "buildings" are actually all pieces of dinnerware - inspired by Florentine Renaissance homes. Stacked dinnerware that doesn't look like tableware when not in use? Seriously. Brilliant. Love. Swoon. Amazing.
Do you read the The Lil Bee's Blog? It is one of my favorites. Anyway, back in November, I entered this giveaway (I know, I love the giveaways as noted earlier this week) from APART. Well, I was completely shocked when I got an email from a representative at APART saying that they planned to give EVERYONE who commented on the giveaway - the item that they discussed in their comment. Whoa. I read the email a few times because I did not believe it was true. A very generous gift indeed.
So....my package from APART arrived yesterday and I am SO excited to wear this skirt to holiday parties this year. It is extremely well made, and the fabric is beautiful. The fit is absolutely perfect (if you order from APART use their size chart). I am thinking or wearing it with red tights, black patten leather high heels and a green sweater.
Thank you APART for what felt like an early Christmas gift. :)
Yay! A great day! I love to enter giveaways on blogs - mostly because I am introduced to beautiful new websites/products/companies that I did not know about before.
And today - I won! Cup of Jo is one of my favorite blogs. Remember this giveaway for a cute blouse below with a wonderful scissor print from Snoozer Loser? I commented that it would be a great gift for my sister.
You guessed it - more open shelving yumminess. I know, this is getting ridiculous.
I mean - those shelves are awesome unto themselves, but look at those counters! I have butcher block counters at home & love them. These are even better though - rich, warm, beautiful. They remind me of a boat.

...pick out a couch or two. Living room remodel in full effect. Scott told me to "ask the girls" their opinions. My perspective - get comfy sectional couch that still looks good. Scott's perspective - more sleek and modern with 2 couches. We are turning the living room a different direction and will have more room to accommodate sectional or 2 couches. Thoughts? Suggestions? Help.
[I like all the colors under "Cotton Basketweave" @ West Elm]
[orange sectional - sort of like the color scheme we have now @CB2]
2 couches instead of sectional could include 1 that is like a traditional couch and one that is more like a chaise lounge or flat part of a sectional? See some of the options below:
[My lame attempt at trying to add 2 couches to one picture- above - Draper couch @ CB2, and orange sectional part @CB2 - below Draper couch again in diff. color and green daybed @ CB2 ]
Thoughts? There are more couches we have talked about - but all sort of look like the posted listed here...
