Bits and Pieces
I’m back! A few days to recharge without having to rush off to anywhere was just what I needed. I feel very refreshed! But I’d forgotten that when I spend a weekend by myself at home, it goes A LOT like this:
(I’m so serious. Replace dog with two cats.)
Anyway, I’m glad to rejoin society today, knowing that I’ll come home to a clean, organized, fall-decorated house.
Trifle dish + fake flowers from last year’s fall wreath + table runner = no-cost fall table.
I bought this adorable Pier 1 hook to use as a belt rack. It’s a little extravagant for the inside of a closet, but I’ll see it every day and it makes me happy. (I succesfully used a drill for this and several other tasks over the weekend. All the women independent, throw your hands up at me.)
When I was growing up, my mom had copper pans just like these. About a year ago I got nostalgic about them and wanted to hang them in my own kitchen, but she had sold hers at a yard sale. So she found identical molds at another yard sale and gave them to me. :) I couldn’t decide where to put them, but this weekend I just picked a spot and nailed them up. They make me happy.
I stopped in at Anthropologie on Friday. Their prices are so ridiculous that I only go there for inspiration. Since I can’t pin items in real life, I took some sneaky cameraphone pics. I love this mustard-colored top – the polka dots sealed the deal. Maybe Target will have something similar. I wouldn’t have paired it with forest green AND navy blue, but who am I to question Anthropologie styling? :) And the dish is something to keep in mind for my next trip to Seize the Clay.
Finally, I read this cover to cover. It was perfect and I can’t stop thinking about it. After some reflection, I’ve decided the trilogy is sort of a teenage, steampunk, role-reversed Princess Bride. It has adventure, history, science, politics, etc., and is more romantic than you’d think any of those things could be. That is the genius of Scott Westerfeld.
How was everyone else’s weekend?
