Happy Friday!  What is on your weekend agenda?  I am scooting off to Chicago this weekend for my nephew’s first birthday party and I’m excited to get out of town even if for a little bit.  I always enjoy exploring little pieces of chi-town each time I’m there and discovering something new.  My Brother-in-law and Sister-in-law’s neighborhood is always full of fun little gems.

This week, we have a few lovely finds that are totally worth a bit of you time energy (and dare I say moolah?) Let’s go!

The List Week 38

No. 1 HALF & HALF: I just love interesting coffee cups.  It’s one of those obsessions that I really have to curb due to our lack of cupboard space. If I did have more space, however, I’d totally be into these black dipped mugs.  They just remind me of the contrast between the coffee and milk while you’re pouring it in and it’s swirling around. $5 from CB2.

No. 2 SIMPLY COOL: This graphic pillow is just cool. It’s super simple, but adds a little cool factor to the throw pillow realm. I could see it being paired with a smaller all over pattern  or a texture like herringbone or tweed.  $45 from Design Life Kids – also comes in blush!

No. 3 LEATHER LATTICE: Wow!  This leather lattice basket is just beautiful, no? At first glance my thoughts went to a DIY, but then I just figured the real thing was probably better (sturdier) and has prettier leather than I could rustle up.  $118 for the small from Terrain.

No. 4 WINE HIVE: I am usually not a huge fan of wine racks because I think they’re usually pretty cheesy, but I like this gold hive version because it’s dainty and has some structural detail. $68 from Jayson Home.

No. 5 TWIN TALK: I read this amazing article about dopplegangers on Victoria’s blog and was super interested to see if there was another Erin out there, so I signed up on Twin Strangers.  Needless to say, I didn’t find a match and most people who claim to have a ‘button nose’ really don’t. They need to come to columbus and see my little mushroom nose for a comparison!

 

Have a fabulous weekend out there! See you back here on Monday!
