Friday Collections

January 13, 2012


This week has not had the kind of structure I’d hoped for – you know the kind where you end up asking more questions than getting answers? But that’s okay.

I’ve wondered about chivalry. I can’t believe it’s dead as long as there are folks like us that still teach little boys what to do when a puddle appears.

I look around my house and I want to redo each room I see. I’m not sure where to begin, but I know that a pair or seven of these ginger jars are in my future. They remind me of a pair my grandmother has in her house that have always fascinated me – except hers are capodimante.

There is no way to make a sausage dish look anything but phallic, but that doesn’t stop this dish from SOUNDING delicious and warm and homey. Beef sausages with balsamic tomatoes from Kaotic Kitchen. And a fireplace. And wine.

The color of the year is Tangerine Tango. I think I’ll start at my feet with these adorable Kimchi suede wedges at Urban Outfitters. Join me?

But really? This image just about sums it up.

A few quick notes…

I was so thrilled to guest post over at Here in this House today. Go check it out – I posted my inspiration board after cleaning out 50% of my closet. NOT KIDDING.

Have you stalked me and my rabid internet browsing yet? You should. There is LOTS to discover.

Have a great weekend, everyone – we’ll see you back here on Monday. xo

    When my husband and I went to Mexico one year we bought lamps that look just like those ginger jars. They are the swirling pattern and are turquoise. The place we bought them was FABULOUS, just miles and miles of talavera and they shipped everything for us and nothing broke in transit. If I could somehow remember or get back in touch with them I would buy two more for our living room in the black chevron pattern. SIGH.

      I’m so obsessed with the ginger jar shape right now. I want a pair for my bathroom counter – and another pair for my kitchen window.

      It’s a sickness.
