Where tiny places and thoughtful spaces fall in love....

Golden Eagle Eye...

One of the many things I love about the women in my family is that we not only share our obsession for chocolate and a good long phone chat, but we also share our passion for a fine piece of furniture.  Pieces of decor get passed around our family like a signature recipe.  When my little cousin and her husband moved into their first home they had their pick of heirlooms to outfit their new place.  Most recently my mother downsized houses and we each had our pick of pieces that wouldn't fit into her new place.  Although we have so much in common, it is a rarity that we're ever vying for the same piece....until now.  The Golden Federal Eagle Mirror might just cause our first family feud, and this beautiful baby might just be worth it!  Great Aunt Janet watch out because I think this one's mine!

All of my Love to Jadeite Cake Stands

While planning a little get together that I'm hosting this week, it occured to me that I would give up my right eyebrow to serve all of my desserts on a beautifully delicate Jadeite Cake Stand.  You can find one of your own at Fishs Eddy, one of my all time favorite stores in NYC!

The Butterfly Chair...never Outgrown!

One of my first furniture purchases as a home decor obsessed 12 year old was my very own Butterfly Chair.  While my fellow 7th graders were obsessing over the Backstreet Boys & Dawson's Creek, I was rearranging the furniture in my bedroom for the 10th time that month.  That same Butterfly Chair stuck with me through 1 dorm, a sorority house, 3 college apartments & 1 tiny studio on the other size of the country.  Now...for some ungodly reason I am kicking myself for ever getting rid of it!  How could I ever do such a thing after seeing these amazing leather versions?  Find your very own here: Urban Outfitters, Neutral Dwelling or CB2 and don't make the same mistake I did :(

Wrapping it up in 2012....

I told myself that 2012 would be the year I start being more thoughtful with my gift giving just like my best friend Jenn.  Jenn and I are not only fellow Sagittarians, but we happen to share the same birthday!  Fortunately and unfortunately for me, she is that amazing friend who always shows up with the most thoughtfully unique and always unexpected gift.  I on the other hand, queen of gift cards, corner market flowers or last minute wine bottles will come to the realization that I should bring a gift to our shared birthday party on my way to the event.  Is it inappropriate to give cash I might ask myself?! 
Let's just say I am NOT going to go there this year!  One thing that may help me with my little resolution is my very own wrapping station!  My favorite is the first picture of a behind the door set up, best for those of us who don't have the space for a microwave let alone an entire room devoted to gift wrapping!

Country Kitchens...

Think I'd have to learn how to make Apple Pie if I was a
lucky enough girl to have a kitchen like one of these!
