Favorite Finds: A Few Random Things

Check out these random few things I’m loving right now.

I came across this photo when I was reading Abigail Ahern’s post on 10 Steps to a Stylish Office and I was immediately smittened with these dishes. How awesome is it that these dishes look likes pieces of a picture or a tapestry? What’s more intriguing to me is that you can’t see the whole picture. It leaves a little something to the imagination and I love that concept!  Do you know where I can find something like this? Please let me know.



Book Club: The New Bohemian

Once in a while, there’s a book worth the wait. This was one of them. The New Bohemian by Justina Blakeney.

I love bohemian and I’m a little free-spirited. But bohemian is not entirely my style. I’m a bit more eclectic. As I read this book, I discovered there were six types of bohemians: Modern, Earthy, Folksy, Nomadic, Romantic, and Maximal. Who knew? I didn’t. This is why I read (Preferably hard copy, thank you. There’s more magic involved.). I’m a bit of an earthy and nomadic bohemian. Lately, my collection of live greenery has been growing. That’s due to what’s well known as “trial and error.” My Christmas cactus has been hanging in there for about seven years. Impressive life span, don’t you think?


Inspirational Words: Wanderlust


Via Potential Psychology

I’m not sure who said those words, but it’s like they know me. It’s almost like my body needs some routine, but my soul can’t be tied down. Sometimes it’s hard to know which one to listen to. I only have one of each. Maybe I should listen to my soul. The body is tougher than it lets on. Maybe it can break out of routine for a while. Fortunately, I have a trip coming up. Helen, GA, anyone? If you’ve been there, tell me about it!

The Spotlight: Blue, Gold and White Kitchen

Sarah Richardson is one talented lady. She is at least an author, designer, and tv show host. I, unfortunately, haven’t read her new book and I don’t currently have cable- so no HGTV for me. But I have seen some of her design works. Take a look at this kitchen.

Sarah Richardson's Blue & White Kitchen.... I love the royal blue and gold together. This is from a great blog I follow!

Normally a kitchen like this is far too white for me. But there’s enough royal blue and gold in there to warm up the space for me.
