Desk Toppers

So I actually have a desk in this new home. No more storing my stuff in a closet and writing my lists and stuff on the steps. I have a catch all home base and it makes me organized. I love being organized. So I have been pinning like crazy desk accessories, and these caught my eye.

I have been eyeing these prints for a few years now.

I love the whimsy of this one. So I decided since they were more than half off retail value, I would get one.

The one above is going in Miss F’s room. Much smaller print.

This one is beautiful. One of my favorites.

The website has such eye candy.

Vanity Visions

The master bath is almost completed. The only last thing to be built is the vanity. I searched high and low for a vanity that offered storage and style. But because I found a trough vessel marble sink, it had to be extremely sturdy to support both the vessel and the additional slab of marble for it to sit on. I turned to a local craftsman who is extremely talented and had him create something that was along these lines but did not necessarily have to be an exact replica.

Country Residence Bathroom
The open concept has always been something I have been drawn too. We decided to stain the piece 50% jacobean 50% ebony. The two shelves concept wouldn’t work, so we opted to do one. I am excited to see the finished product and share it with you.


In the new build, Miss F’s room has the chimney inside her room. Because of setbacks and other restrictions, the chimney couldn’t be extended out. So I have decided to make it a focal point of her room and work with it. Dry walling over it could have been an option, but I thought the bricks would look cool. She really has a tiny room compared to the room she has now. I say it is cozy.  She is so excited about her new room and I am almost finished gathering all the things for it. Sourcing was pretty easy.

Here are some rooms that caught my eye with painted brick. I am going for stark white.

Painted white brick and copper.

Wedding Blanket

wedding blankets


I have had the moroccan wedding blanket on a short list to purchase one day for about 7 years. Every year I say this will be the year I get one. I search quite often for the perfect one at least a few times every month. I was finally going to purchase one that had the coloring and size that I had wanted for like ever. Figures. Sold that same morning. Back to the search. I want to drape it on the bed in the master.
