THIS AND THAT




Quite the catchy title huh?  These last few weeks have been full of before and afters.....and I feel like I have hit the bottom of the ice cream container.  It will take time to make more:)

So I did what any self respecting blogger would do and scrolled through my pictures.  I  came up with some pretty to share with you....whew.

Here are a few things I saw while shopping for those jobs.

This rug at World Market.  You could have bound it with any other color and I would have walked on by but you slap a little blue on something and I get positively giddy.

Same with black & white!  This pillow cover at Crate and Barrel

Pottery Barn score big points with me on this duvet cover.  Dayum.  Iwantsobadly.

You remember when I found this wood table at HomeGoods and used it in a project....I saw it again just the other day [79.00].  I have seen it on Overstock for more than double the price!


I wanted to show you the other color ways that Designer Guild fabric comes in...Here is the one I used with a cream background.

This is a yellow background.

And a white background...


Love all.

At the mart Chelsea Textiles [known for their beautiful Gustavian and French Country reproductions showed us some modern pieces.

Gustavian

Country French

Mid Century Modern

Loving the handles.


And these.

A few chairs that caught my eye on the website.

 This one....

These spoke to me in a dream.....buy me please.

We are expecting a light dusting of snow...maybe 1".  That means it is panic time in the south.  I just borrowed this picture from FB from one of my friends.
I don't know about you but if I am stuck in a 1" snowstorm I do not want to exist on bread and milk.   My preference would be chocolate and wine.... the staples.  Just sayin.

Crikey people.

This is the winter that will have people dancing in the streets neked when spring finally rolls around.

Those chests are so beautiful, especially that first one. Just lovely. I also love Pottery Barn lately, one just opened near us so I am there often.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

You are cracking me up. Yes, chocolate and wine sounds much better. I hope we do get some snow. I love watching it.

Elizabeth @ The Little Black Door said...

I will dance naked in the streets when we can finally stay over 50 degrees!

Kelly said...

You are so right!!! I always find it funny that suddenly people need bread and milk and think they will be trapped in their home for days. This weekend is going to warm up and where I live there will be less than an inch. No worries here.

Linda {Calling it Home} said...

Just had some chocolate and wine last night. Don't wait for the snow...live now.

Love that fabric and all the other goodies. I want to go to World Market…but I miss my Orange County Home Goods….used to love swinging by there. Now I have to go out to the 'burbs. Just fog here today. Snow would be fun. Stay warm.

The kids are due home early because of the snow, any moment, and I'm already eyeing the bottle!

cheers! xoxo

I saw that wooden table at my HG as well and knew I should have picked it up. Maybe it will still be there but I doubt it somehow.

Ashley Jo said...

I'm right there with you! Anything with a little blue and you can count me in. :)

I have already stocked up on the wine. I have my priorities straight.

You should have seen the empty shelves of kids rain boots. I had to go three places to find my son a pair! I'm with ya on the wine. I have a stash of Zing Zang and vodka so I am good to go!

Stacey {steward of design} said...

You've spotted so many goodies. I love that little side table and love the PB duvet.
Stay warm!

Bethany DeVore said...

that's such a great little side table! Loving those pulls too!

Jennifer @traditional glamour said...

I recently started following you and I must say you are hilarious...and talented!!Stuck up here in the Washington DC metro, we don't have a lot of funny and talented bloggers!! Thanks

Katie said...

Fun pics as always... though it's gonna be painful with no before and afters for awhile.

They are calling for less than an inch accumulation here in the Roanoke Valley, which evidently means "send everyone home early in case of bad roads". Ya don't have to tell me twice.

My only question is... what do people have against Nature's Own Whole Wheat? I think that little extra bit of fiber would be quite valuable to a diet of milk and bread. haha.

Jennifer@traditional glamour said...

You are so hilarious and talented! Just started following your blog and I love it!

Patty Day @Pattys Epiphanies said...

Crazy with the milk and bread.
I'm with you, we have our wine and chocolate!

therelishedroost said...

Chelsea Textiles is one of my favorites, its so classic and pretty, the fabric and the pieces!! Really like that pottery barn block print oo!

Heidi @ Decor & More said...

And can you believe I don't have a drop of wine in my house? Knew I should've stopped at the liquor store on my eventful ride home today... there's always vodka, I suppose. :)
xo heidi
PS -- stay in - stay warm!

My Notting Hill said...

Loving that chartreuse chair!

Yes, wine and chocolate are staples in our pantry during Winter...and all the other seasons.

pam {simple details} said...

Oh, you funny girl! I used that HG table for my clients on their covered patio, it's a steal! I'd add warm homemade cookies to wine & chocolate! :)

Alysa said...

Sherry you have a winning combo- visual talent and the talent to make people laugh! Love reading your posts

cindy hattersley design said...

That table is fabulous! I wonder if they have it out here! I concur with your staples. I will take that over wonderbread any day!!
