man shops globe

So, how many of you, like me, have upgraded your tv package to include the Sundance channel just to watch this show? Man shops globe is such a great show. I sat there with my jaw gaping open at some of the pieces and places he discovered and visited. Keith Johnson has one of the best jobs I could ever imagine. He is one of the buyers for Anthropologie and is responsible for some of their beautiful displays, furnishings and art, all of which can be purchased, which I did not know. I know have to set aside a much larger budget when shopping Anthropologie!

So, you must watch this show or catch some of the episodes on the Sundance website.  I just wish it was like 2 hours longer! AND in HD!

oh the times, they are a changin’

I know I have had a lack of posts recently and felt that my blog needed to take a backseat to my real life for a while. So many changes go on in ones life and some are for the better and some are for the worst. I like to take those changes that seem that they’re for the worst and bring something good out of them. One wise woman said to me in life that if you cant laugh your way through things, then you’re doomed, poor girl, doomed. So I have my humor and look at things with my humor in hand; burst of laughter ready at the go.
Soooo. With change comes more change! At this new state of change that has emerged, I feel the need to change my surroundings. I want to update the interior of my home. Make it my own.
I bought my house about 5 years ago and feel it needs a change as well. So heres a bit of what I am thinking about:

dressed all in leatha’

Just diggin’ this leather chair over at Urban Outfitters. I am finding myself drawn to more natural materials. Although I have mixed feelings on the issues of animal rights and leather materials. Maybe I can find a “pleather” one.

Oh, and I love the wood side table too. I want to sand and coat some chopped pieces of wood from my yard and use as tables like this.

O christmas tree

So I finally got the tree up and the lights on and I pulled out my huge boxes of ornaments to hang. I love the ornaments. My mom has always picked up ornaments from different little cities or gift shops that we visit and then when years go by and I pull all my ornaments out, I unwrap one and sit back and say, “oh, I remember this trip, when we ate the crawfish in the spices and they were so hot and spicey that our fingers were even on fire!”

I love that part of christmas and I can also totally see these on my tree..

Organize, organize

So now that I am getting quite a collection of necklaces that I want to keep and wear forever I hate to pile them into my old jewelry box and let them tangle themselves into an unrecognizable heap of metal.
I found this necklace stand on Urban Outfitters on sale and its so vintage and cute and the whole “bird” theme is pretty popular right now. I bought it. I did. I love it….. Now, to put it to use!
