I LOVE the cover of the new Lonny Mag. I audibly said “ooh!” when I saw it….
I love that one fresh and bold colored piece can take a room that in my opinion would otherwise be dull-town, and turn it into something so beautiful and playful.
Today I walked through one of our local antique places hoping to find a big, round some kind of wonderful mirror for my bathroom. I didn’t find that, but I found a lot of other things. None of them came home with me, but I took some pictures of the gems that were amongst a ton of stuff.
Most of these were fairly reasonably priced, and what is nice about these kind of places is prices are usually negotiable. Any of these can be yours at Traders Emporium in Soquel, CA.
I picked up this jumper a while back at Urban Outfitters, on sale from $300 down to $30…That’s 90% off folks…and yes, to answer your question, I AM awesome at math.I love the black and cream graphic print, but my favorite feature is…The fun cutout back! I love the shape of the cutout and the visual interest it adds, and I like that it’s not overly revealing.And….This is me, pretending to be a bullfighter. I think my portrayal is pretty convincing.
Who out there was up super late last night waiting for the Missoni for Target collection to launch? Then eventually went to bed, woke up this morning to Target.com being down…took a five minute break to take a shower, and then returned to their computer only to find that all the items they wanted were sold out?
Here are some of the items I would have purchased, had I actually been able to purchase any items…
I’ve been searching for a curtain rod for my bedroom, but I need it be 158″ long, which turns out is a crazy long curtain rod. My first thought was to go to Home Depot and get a really long wood pole, and paint it the same color as the wall to make it disappear a bit. But, turns out such a pole doesn’t exist beyond about 12 1/2 feet. I’ve read about people using conduit pipe- it’s cheap and minimal, but I am not sure if I like that idea. Maybe if I could paint it the wall color. I think I lean towards curtain hardware that disappears more than trys to be an additional decoration or adornment.
I love these curtains on the cover of Elle Decor, and might try to duplicate those in Van’s room. Seems like just a lot of fabric, and maybe mounted good velcro onto a hidden strip of wood right under the ceiling (uh, pretty sure that’s not how they did it, but my I Can Make That disease tells me otherwise).
Though none of these are long enough for my room, here are some options for you should you be roaming in the curtain rod aisle-
I gotta tell ya, there is not that much out there. Nothing is really floating my boat. Have you found anything cool? I was also thinking I like the idea of a gold one, but not shiny cheap looking gold. Pretty perhaps vintage looking gold? But not shabby chic or weirdly speckled or something. I don’t know. I guess I’ll know it when I see it. And may it be 158″.
