Drooling Over: Millie Fairhall Serving Boards

May 29, 2014

I have this new thing for wood boards—I want a whole collection of them in different shapes, sizes and colors. I think it started with asking Tim’s dad to make me a cutting board for Christmas and turned out pretty amazing. Then I bought this one from Newberry here in St. Louis when they had a pop-up shop at West Elm. Now I seriously want to add a serving board from Millie Fairhall to my collection. She’s located in Australia and hand carves and paints these amazing serving boards. I love not only the designs that are painted on the boards, but also the organic and sometimes odd shapes of the boards. Considering the price of these boards, it would definitely be an investment piece, but I know I would have the board for a very long time.

Drooling Over: Garance Doré

May 21, 2014

I was recently introduced to Garance Doré thanks to the new collaboration with Rifle Paper Co. It was then that I realized how many of her illustrations I’ve seen in the past—I just never bothered looking into them. (Silly me.) The illustrator and blogger, originally from the French island of Corsica, has done work for Vogue Paris, Tiffany’s, Kate Spade, Louis Vuitton, Céline and Gap. Even though I have a fine arts degree, illustration was never something I pursued, which is why I think I have a tendency to gravitate towards it with other’s work. Garance’s The Cape illustration is one of my favorites, followed by the Belle De Jour illustration. I feel like there’s a level of sophistication in her illustrations that any girl would love to achieve in real life. Besides these prints/posters, she has a stationary line. I’ll take one of everything please!

Drooling Over: Urban Outfitters Home

May 7, 2014

There was a time (my first two years of college) when I spent way too much money at Urban Outfitters. I was obsessed with the store! After a while I stopped going there—my style changed and I realized I could get the same thing from Forever 21 for a fraction of the price. Well now it’s not the clothing that I’m paying attention to…it’s their home section. So many things I am really loving! A lot of the furniture is more of the mid-century era (which I love), and most of the decor items are on the simple side. I could have easily listed fives times the amount of items and not just eight. It’s probably not a good thing that the UO and West Elm stores here in St. Louis are located in the same mall. Actually, I take that back. It is a good thing.

1. Plant stand $49  /  2. Wall flag $34  /  3. Floor lamp $129  /  4. Dagmar chair $289  /  5. Diamond rug $89-199  /  6. Wine lover’s guided journal $15  /  7. Geo pendant $69  /  8. Nightstand $149

Drooling Over: Zoku Popsicle Maker

April 24, 2014

The other night Tim and I were sitting on the couch and I got this idea that hasn’t left me—I NEED a popsicle mold or maker. I mean, who doesn’t love popsicles on 100 degree days? Especially since St. Louis has their fair share of 100+ degree days in the summer. I don’t care to buy ones from the store—there’s always so many extra ingredients that shouldn’t be needed. So why not make my own?! Do three hours of yard work and grab for a beer? Nah…hand me a popsicle 😉

So that’s when I started pinning popsicle recipes like crazy and came across the Zoku Quick Pop Maker. It can make popsicles in like 7 minutes! It comes in a few different sizes (amounts), or you can just go with the traditional molds. I’ll probably have to make a trip to our local Crate and Barrel this weekend and pick one up. Tim told me to sleep on the idea, but I know he’ll be happy I bought one.

Drooling Over: Hanging Planter

April 16, 2014

It’s been a minute since I’ve done one of these posts! Over a month to be exact. I’m excited to get back to doing these every week.

I came across this hanging planter a couple weeks ago and instantly fell in love. It’s so simple with just two pieces of wood, and I love the diamond shape of it. Not to mention the sweet brass chain. There’s a spot just to the left of my desk in our home office where I’m dying to put a hanging plant. At first I wanted glass terrariums with air plants, then I changed my mind to wanting a macramé hanger, and now I think I’ve changed my mind again!
