All the gift guides out there got me in the mood to do a few of my own. These are things that I have come across and loved.
FOR HER (aka as things I’d feel lucky to find under the tree;)
edit: btw I know that sconce is rather indulgent, but I’m having quite an obsession with it, so I had to add it
Here’s hoping you have a lovely weekend! I am chaperoning a ‘girls night’ at my daughter’s school (seems like everyone I talk to had a universally horrible middle school experience, me included). I also am itching to paint and work on a horse costume. As in a costume for a horse. Good times!
Here were my favorite pins this week:
This made me laugh because I pretty much always have paint on my hands, and the day I saw this I had stepped in some as well

in lust with these chairs (via bodie and fou)
my toes need these slippers this winter (via toast)
Ah, Friday. I picked my husband up at the airport this morning. He’s been in Asia for the past few weeks, so this weekend we will be adjusting to having him back around (what my friend calls ‘re-entry’)! Oh, we will also be burrying our beloved ‘fishy’ who died a few days ago. He was a guppy my daughter had gotten in the 2nd grade, so he was around 4 years old, a good long life for a fish, I’d say.
Here were some of my favorite pins this week, have a lovely weekend…
1. I love the title of this book, so true, don’t you think? ‘A Perfectly Kept House Is The Sign of a Mispent Life,’ found here
2. Obsessed with Cy Twombly right now
3. This outfit says fall to me, found here
I just wanted to share this beautiful shop I just discovered, Elk. Not only are their things beautiful, but the packaging is lovely. That always earns huge bonus points, and even though they are in Australia, their shipping is super fast!
(thanks Annie for introducing me to this beautiful store!)
Toast, please stop. You are killing me. The clothes (yum) but also the little videos for each piece.
(thank you to Olivet for reminding me how amazing their stuff is)

I am now taking full and complete advantage of this blog by (not so subtly) posting my holiday wish list. Now, if my wonderful hubby just happens to read this post I have ever so helpfully included links to each one
:everything at emmerson made is so simple and beautiful. (also i want to live at the house where all her products shots were taken, and i’ll take the duck, thank you.)
I have a very sick kid at home (day 4 with super high temp=no fun, poor kid). So while we watch every Harry Potter movie (again, again and again) I have been sitting here finding all sorts of stuff I now want. The list includes:

look at me, three posts in one day. Every summer, our kids beg, beg, beg for a tree house. The problem, we don’t have a tree. Look at these! Make it a little larger and add some indoor plumbing and I’d live in it!Worapong Manupipatpong found via ohdeeoh
