something we new englanders can relate to.

I am so tempted to copy this guy & make a fort in my courtyard.
Space of the Week: When Life Gives You Blizzards, Make a Snow Fort

just sayin'

Can't help but think this great home in Brooklyn designed by Elizabeth Roberts reminds me of my own.
Um - black floors.

The kitchen table.  This chandelier is killer.  Wish my kitchen ceilings were high enough to accommodate something like it.

Nice bath.  All the materials that I would use.  Simple.

And penny-rounds.  Becoming a staple in my bathroom projects (especially kids baths!)

small new purchase and 1 missed perfect purchase

So happy with the new hand towels that I picked up at West Elm; they are doing a nice new bath line.

They work well in my powder room and master bath.

I also love that they have this affordable industrial cabinet which would be great in a bath filled with towels or with beautiful objects.

Well, this is not supposed to be a West Elm blog.  Just liking it right now.  

Sad news is that I found the perfect table.  I mean PERFECT and I didn't act on it within the 24 hour hold I put on it and it was sold right out from under me.  OK, so I didn't get back to them in time (I had to work!)  
I am crushed.  I don't think I'll ever find the right table for the dining room.  I shed a tear for this one.  It even has leaves that make it super long.
