I got the bells

I’m really feeling bell details in decor right now!  Look how creative this bell installation is.  There is just something so cool about it… modern, but calling on the past.  Loves!


So, I’m thinking that I’m going to channel my bell obsession right not into my Restore find.  Here’s the eye candy I’ve been using as inspiration.






I’m having a girlie moment…wait for it…”OMG!  Those teensie bells are just sooooo cute!”

I realize my little fixture is not a lantern, not bamboo and not even square, but there’s some neat fish-scale details there that I think channel an Asian flair.  And I gotta worth with what I got, right?!

Am I on my own here or are you having the bells today too?

By the way, these super purdy lights ain’t cheap and my little masterpiece is currently clocking in at $7!  Hope you like her too… should be done in a day or two.

Trolling the Restore Store

I don’t know if you’ve heard of this store, but I had read a few diy’ers mention it as their go to for scores and then (as luck would have it) I saw one opening in my neighborhood!  Finally, I’ve had a chance to check it out and yes, it is pretty cool. There is junk, there is treasure and there is fun stuff to just imagine fixed up!  Here are some of my fav’s….

There were a pair of these for $15 buckeroos each!
There were a pair of these for $15 buckeroos each!
Great for the porch or patio – $40 bucks a pair!
Really liked both of these. The foot rest, $30, has fabulous chrome legs and would be easy to recover and the the side table, $35, just needs a glass piece – so Mad Men looking!
This diamond in the rough was only a few bucks!

The last little gem is the piece I took home with me.  She’s currently getting a facelift and should look oh, so cute in the hallway as a lantern.

Happy Hunting!

Feelin’ lazy today…

Just wanted to show you where I’ll be cuddled up reading a book today.  Sigh… I wish!!


Anthropology has the coolest stuff ever and one day I will make one of these (’cause the 4k price tag ain’t cheap)!!  I adore their sense of whimsy and the awesome prints.  Their style is a little too boho for me, but it definitely inspires!

Take it easy today =)
