Vacation >Blogging

We are going on vacation. Whoop whoop. 

Trying to get out of here is another story.  My life today...

You know how I said I am going to pay more attention to this blog. I lied. I decided to go to Turks and Caicos instead. My life is so hard. :) 

Let's go Shopping

-I would like nothing more than to steal this entire Rebecca Taylor look. 
-Thanks to Bethany for showing me the knock offs of the Jenni Kayne D'Orsay flats

Why I have been neglecting you...

Hey party people. I feel like I have been going through blog withdrawal over the past month and a half. Last week I  finally finished up my real estate class and passed the class test. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Friday we headed to Charleston to celebrate our favorite friends, Caitlin and Whitey. Caitlin is a wedding planner and works for THE Calder Clark. I wish I would have taken more pictures, because everything was out of this world. 

I am so excited to finally have some time to blog, tackle some house projects and catch up on all my favorite blogs!

A Good Nude

This image from Anna Spiro's Brisbane apartment circa 2009 is one of my all time favorites.
I am always on the hunt for original art. Finding perfect pieces I can afford, is proving to be quite time consuming.

In the meantime, I am in the market for a good nude sketch. has a Henri Matisse print that could do the trick AND it is only $12.99.

Insert Art

Sometimes there is nothing better than having a huge blank wall...

*these prints are not to scale, they are ginormous. 

Sconces(no longer available)/Artwork

Things of note:
-The Well Appointed House has some really pretty art. 
-We need sconces. We have too many lamps. 
-Doug is pretty handy but he is refusing to do sconces. Have any of you installed them yourself?

Grown Up Den

Our den needs a serious makeover. It currently consists of a hodge podge of hand me down furniture we had when we moved in. I got lucky and scored a tortoise coffee table and I feel like I owe the room a little more attention. 

I am on the look out for a vintage rug. 

I am always checking Ebay, eSale Rugs and estate sales. What are some of your favorite sources for vintage rugs?
