Crushin’ on Coral

17 Jun

I am currently crushing on Coral.  I love the vibrancy of the color and along with it comes day dreaming of hot summer days.

A Piece of Gossip Girl

8 Apr

One of my best friends, R, gave me this canvas print for my birthday this past year.  It is one of my favorite pieces in our condo.  Makes me feel that much closer to one of my favorite shows, Gossip Girl.

I’m counting down the days until April 18th.  Happy Friday everyone!!

Weekend

1 Apr

J is going away this weekend for a friend’s bachelor party so I am going to get the place to myself.  I’m going to miss my partner in crime but here are a few things that I’ll have to look forward to…

Although I am a horrible baker so far, I am going to try my hand at baking a few things this weekend.  Guess you’ll see posts if anything turns out edible.

Excited to have game night in with some friends.  PJs, snacks and good times all included.

Happy Friday everyone!

P.S.-Happy Birthday Case!

 

Antique Mall

15 Mar

Determined to find some treasures for our home I dragged J out with me to the antique mall this past Sunday.  There happened to be a sale going on at Pacific Galleries in SODO so that was where we headed.  It was my first time at Pacific Galleries and I was pretty overwhelmed!  This place is huge and there was so much to see.  I could have easily spent hours upon hours in there but didn’t want to bore J who didn’t seem to share my interest of old knick knacks.  There were definitely some pins, teacups and other random things that I have my eye on and hope to get on my next trip back but I was happy to leave with my four treasures.

A milk glass vase that is currently home to my pastel tulips.

A canvas painting with quote.  This quote has been so helpful with the week I’ve been having.

This vase was probably my favorite purchase of the day.

Mini mannequin bust currently on our bookshelf.  J thought it would be perfect for Roscoe’s clothes…what a funny guy.

 

I think I do believe that some man’s junk is another man’s treasure.

*On another note, Happy Birthday to my bosom friend Faye!

Mirror Mirror

8 Mar

Sorry for the lack of outfit posts lately.  I have been busy outfitting our living room instead!  We are doing some spring cleaning and redecorating so I’ve been out furniture shopping.  Our new couch just arrived yesterday so I spent all day moving things around.  Now that we have the big pieces, its time to find the smaller accent pieces that are just as important.  I came upon the Faceted Mirror Side Table from West Elm and just HAD to snatch two of them up!  I can’t wait until they are here in my living room.

 

The tables are exactly what I was looking for.  I think the shape keeps the tables modern yet the foxed effect mirrored faces give them a vintage glamour feel and that makes them so versatile!  I love.

It’s my party…

17 Jan

And I definitely didn’t cry but I was surely surprised!!  J and some of my best friends threw me a surprise 50’s Sock Hop themed party for my birthday on Saturday.  The girls even made me my very own poodle skirt!  The decorations were awesome and we had diner food and a hot dog toppings bar!  Here are some pictures from the party.

 

 

A huuuuuge thank you to everyone involved and all the guests for celebrating with me.  You have all made me feel so loved and I couldn’t even think of a wish when I blew out my birthday candles because I couldn’t have been happier.  Thank you.
XO,
Anna

Hey Mr. Postman

4 Jan

With internet capabilities virtually everywhere, the art of letter writing has greatly dwindled.  BUT, I will always love getting postcards and mail, especially if they’re as cute as these wallets!

Speaking of mail, I have got to get started on my thank-you cards!
