Speaking of Candles

I REALLY, REALLY want one of these Aspen Bay Capri Blue Candles in Volcano.

It reminds me of my days working at Anthropologie (my coolest retail job ever) when we always had one of these burning and infusing the store with that amazing scent.

Sniff, Sniff

If you have not visited a Bath & Body Works lately and had the chance to sniff the delicious new scents then you must do so immediately. I was left craving the following two scents ...

The Dress

It was created by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen, classic with a hint of modern and clearly inspired by Grace Kelly ... simply put it was stunning.

This little video really makes you think outside yourself, which is always good, and reminds me to continually check my perspective on things ... they may not really be as bad as I let myself think.

Favorite Find

I dream of one day owning an old or old-inspired (made of reclaimed wood) farm table. So, when I find lovely vintage linens like this table cloth then they are purchased to don the aforementioned table.

I'm so grateful to have the occasional good luck with vintage fabrics like this at a nearby charity shop.

Favorite Find

I was SO lucky to obtain this amazing vintage enamel bowl during my last turn around the local Goodwill just before checkout. It had suddenly appeared on the shelf in all it's bold black/white striped glory screaming at me that we were destined to be.
