More West Elm Love


Here are a few fabulous items that West Elm currently has...
The coco mirror is AMAZING! It has taken me years to find something that I love to go on the wall above my bed. They sold out of this mirror last fall, right when I went to go for the big purchase. So typical. I hum-n-haw over whether or not I should purchase, and you know how it goes... When I like something, and all-of-a-sudden it is gone, I want it even more! I searched high and low for this mirror and NO ONE had it.  So, I had fingers crossed it would make a come-back in Spring... and it did!  I better snatch it up before it's gone again. 
Have these recycled glass bottles in my kitchen and love them.  The mugs and bowls just make me happy.

Stylin' West Elm


One of my favorite stores right now happens to be West Elm.  
We don't have one where I live, so every time we escape the cold and go to Vegas 
I have to drop by at least once. I love to check out how they style their displays. 
Here are a few iphone photos of some of my favorites from my last drop in.

Amy Lau Design: Beach House

Beach House Bridgehampton modern living room
    Beach House Bridgehampton modern bedroom

    Love these rooms by designer Amy Lau Design.
    I love the mix of natural elements and modern funky fun.
    The chartreuse coloring is fantastic, especially mixed with aqua and gray.
    Favorite part is the use of sticks/trunks as a funky part of the decor.
    Amazing statement.

    Maps


    I have this thing for maps and globes... maybe I'm just dreaming of traveling. 
    I've been looking for maps to frame for my wall gallery,
    and came across this fantastic find of a book: Maps by Lena Corwin.

    Lena Corwin began illustrating city maps monthly for an interiors magazine in 2004 
    and decided to gather her forty favorite maps and make a book.  
    There are 20 maps of cities in the United States and 20 maps of cities outside the US.
    I think this would make for a fun gift to someone who loves a good
    coffee table book and/or who loves to travel.

    Babble Beach Guide + Whistle Bag



    A big THANKS to Stephanie for including our Whistle Bag in her Summer Beach Guide. 
    The Whistle Bag really does make the perfect beach bag... I've put it to the test! 
    We also have some other great canvas bags that I think are pretty functional and fun.
    Check out the rest of Stephanie's beach guide at Babble.

    Spring Treats for the Spring Chicks


    has fresh spring items for you and your little chicks.
    These books are seriously so darling and 
    {if you're buying them for someone, you just might have a hard time giving them away}...
    I'm also a fan of the animal hooded towels, animal pillows, plush-stuffed animals, children aprons, & art work.

    Oh! How we all love SPRING! Eggs, flowers, bunnies, chicks, grass, budding trees and plants... it's all so fresh and exciting.  My 8-year-old was telling me how at school, all-of-a-sudden everyone is liking people and the girls are chasing the boys at recess.  He is just so confused by it.  I was trying to explain to him what happens in the Spring... I referred to Bambi and how they were "twitterpated," then I laughed at the word "twitterpated." It has a new meaning now that so many of us are obsessed with Twitter... we are all "twitterpated." ;)

    Wall Gallery Inspiration

    Currently, I am working on a gallery wall.  I seriously L.O.V.E gallery walls. I have always been a fan of displaying photos, however, I'm running out of places to display. So, I have been wanting to put together a gallery wall forever, however, I have limited wall space, due to many windows.  I have been forced to move my gallery wall to the basement family room. My next decision I've been sitting on for-quite-sometime has been: what kind of gallery wall should I create?

    Well, I have finally decided that in addition to family photos, I'd like to add important ancestor photos + important places.  I have an amazing selection of photos of my ancestors.  My favorites are these nostalgic and capturing photos of the wedding day of both sets of my grandparents. I've had them displayed in the library, but I want to add these and more to the gallery. Plus, I have a serious attachment to places I've lived and the memories I hold of these locations.  So, I want to add a few maps and symbols that represent these places and the important places to my hubby as well.
    Right now, I'm in the phase of spray painting frames and gathering photos and maps... I will show you what I come up with in a week-or-so.  However, here are a few inspiration photos I've been gathering to help me with my project.

    I'm Back....


    I'm back from a nice vacation with the fam.  The kids are off track, so we went to Las Vegas with Mr. D and enjoyed some amazingly warm weather, while Mr. D had some work to do.  We went to a different park everyday and had frozen yogurt everyday... in fact, it was so warm that the kids were complaining it was too hot. Funny. Their little bodies just didn't have time to adjust! They went from snow & freezing cold, to hot & sunny 80-90 degree weather. We surprised the kids with a little 2 day trip to Cali too. Loved my time with the kids, however, I had a hard time being disconnected from the computer for a week. I usually put the kids to bed and hop on the computer... well, I guess the bonus to no internet is more sleep. :) I now have a lot to catch up with, but am always grateful for playtime with my kiddos. Will post more photos later.
