1.) Anthropologie has picked up this fantastic line of eco-friendly mixed-media furniture pieces, Swarm. Not one is exactly alike. I think each of the unique betties are pretty neat.
2.) These wedges are k-i-l-l-i-n-g me. Beautiful wooden heels by Casadei. You can purchase them here
for only $890. Yikes. I hate saying this, but if anyone spots some high quality knock-offs, think of me and buy them please!
3.) Lots of great new and colorful portraits featured on Ruffled
, an awesome wedding-oriented blog. I like checking it out for fun do-it-yourself projects.
4.) This curved baseboard
/headboard set is the bee’s knees. It looks so elegant. I’m also a sucker for any and all white furniture pieces. I could crash in that bed right about now.
5.) How darling is this little number
? I’d love to have this hanging with the rest of my dresses in my closet. It looks so comfortable yet so sleek.
6.) This guy, Butch Anthony, was a featured artist on the Etsy blog
. Love his thick Alabama accent, creative artwork, truthful story, and drop-dead-gorgeous home! This goes to show that you can never judge a book by its cover. I plan to visit this Museum of Wonder some day.
7.) So bright. So enticing. So fun. Loving these reasonably prices prints by Carissa Rose. Found her shop while clicking around on Etsy earlier today.
8.) I’m usually not one for gawking at attractive celebrities… real men, yes, I’ll look all that I want to, but have never gotten into the celebrity obsessions. However, I think that David Beckham looks so suave in these photos for Fantastic Man
magazine. Who knew he had full sleeves and a pompadour?
9.) Again with my underwear obsession. The new lacey numbers from Anthropologie
are so dainty and elegant. I’d love to parade around the house (I really mean vacuum, scrub the floors, and do the laundry) in these matching sets.
10.) Last but not least… Modern stars
made to look like vintage pin up girls! How fun! I’m a sucker for vintage styling.
I’m up to my normal snooping again. I love prodding around fantastic old properties. As I was driving to go look at a house to purchase, I saw a sign that said “300+ Acres for Sale” and looked down the sand lane.
I pulled a U-turn and immediately found myself driving down the lane to see what was at the other end. This beauty waited.
After doing some research I found out that this farm house was built in 1875 and has been unoccupied for several years. At least since 1989-1990 based on the evidence that was openly waiting for me inside.
This home was gorgeous. I was honestly in love. The wallpaper, the layout, the views, the serenity. Calling my name. The $4,250,000.00 price tag was not. I’m glad that I was able to poke around this lovely home. I felt some sort of connection to it. My friend, John, said that it’s probably haunted and whoever used to live there may still have connections to it. Understandable since I was charmed by this home so easily.

The contents of this home were all still so intact that it was almost eerie. I can’t understand why someone would just leave this home vacant for 21 years. The remnants inside were lovely and lonely.

Such a pretty historic home. I’d adore being able to say my home was built in 1875, wouldn’t you? Maybe I’m weird but I think age is charming. Needless to say – I was too mesmorized by this home to be even slightly interested in the home I had originaly went to look at that was in my price range. Maybe next time. A girl can dream, right?
