Happy Friday, friends! To help kick off the weekend, I thought it might be fun to create a list of 15 of my current favorite finds and share them all with you.
These are in no particular order. Just a mash up of what’s rocking my world right now. I hope you enjoy perusing them as much as I’ve enjoyed gathering them…
#1 GLITTRAN Mixer Tap from IKEA
#2 Country Living is now on Pinterest
Why it’s a good thing: I’ve saved nearly all of my old CL magazines, dating back to 2004, and most of them have torn, folded, and dog-eared pages. Being able to Pin all my favorite CL images to designated boards and have immediate access to them anytime I need a little inspiration is slice of heaven.
#3 The Perfect Veggie Burger
Why it’s a good thing: From one of my favorite food blogs, Oh She Glows, comes this absolutely amazing recipe. And you don’t have to be vegetarian to fully appreciate the benefits! So yumm!
#4 Seabold Vintage Market
Why it’s a good thing: My new favorite online shop, Liz offers a great collection of vintage and adored items, particularly these red cross necklaces by artist Donna Clement.
#5 Jeanne D’ Arc Living’s new hardcover book
Why it’s a good thing: I got my first peek at this book thanks to my friend Kathee who is selling them like hotcakes in her space at American Home in Ventura. This book is drop-dead amazing! If you can’t stop by the store, she can mail a copy to you. You can contact her via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
#6 Blanket sofa by designer Maresa Patterson
Why it’s a good thing: I love the fresh concept of reinventing vintage upholstery using old plaid blankets and textiles. Unfortunately this sofa is already sold, but you can view more of Maresa’s pieces here.
#7 The Winston Cushion from Hunters at Home
Why it’s a good thing: It’s the perfect combination of my two favorite things…bull dogs & union jack flags. But I must say, that eye patch is pushing me over the edge of cuteness indeed.
#8 Magnifying glass votive sconces
Why it’s a good thing: Spotted on the blog Perfectly Imperfect, I’ve decided I need to find a wall for these sconces somewhere in my house. And by the way, don’t they look 10 x’s better displayed on Shaunna’s mantel versus Pottery Barn’s website. Just sayin’.
#9 My friend Kimberley’s recent dining room before & after reveal.
Why it’s a good thing: Kim is so inspiring! I adore her new neutral-gray color palate, and I especially love how she incorporated the Pom Pom linen tablecloth she bought from my online shop in her makeover.
#10 Slate Flooring
Why it’s a good thing: Okay, so our master bathroom may not exactly look like this (see before pics), but I am crazy about the slate. We’ve been looking for a summer project, and a flooring project just might be it.
#11 “Somebody that I used to know” song (cover version)
Why it’s a good thing: You’ve probably heard the incredible original song by Gotye. Well, this version is so brilliant, it’s one of the best covers I’ve heard. 5 people, one guitar. Worth the watch, I promise. Besides, over 100 million views can’t be wrong!
Why it’s a good thing: Using your iPhone, PaperKarma is an app that allows you to take photos of the junk mail you wish to stop. Simply snap a photo, and you're done. We’ve been using it for 4 weeks now, and we’ve already noticed a major reduction in junk mail!
#13 Flower Market Fridays in Santa Monica
Why it’s a good thing: Fresh flowers curated by Rachel Ashwell from her Santa Monica store. I can’t think of a better way to start off the weekend, than driving home from the city in a truck full of fragrant, beautiful flowers.
#14 Saturday mornings at the Farmers Market
#15 The views along Pacific Coast Highway
And there you have it, my happy little “15” list!
I hope you enjoyed it…I’d love to read your comments. Maybe I should start working on my next Good List, Part 2?
I hope you have a wonderful weekend : )
