I hope everyone had a swell weekend.....I left y'all on Friday with thoughts of painting my powder room but just could not get motivated.
What is wrong with me? I could hear all of you guys in my head painting...doing DIY projects...rearranging things and it still did not help to get me to the paint store.
Crap....maybe I need to schedule a party. That will get you going right:)
I got an email that West Elm is having a great sale with 25% off their sofa's and chairs thru 9/1.
I had to pop over and see what's new.
The first thing that caught my eye was this cute sofa.
The Captain's Settee
It is very similar to this chair from Gabby Home which I love.
I pulled 2 different colors and put together a board...
Love this one welted in navy...
It would work in a small keeping area or maybe in an office right?
Have you seen some of WE's new lighting....and their art?
Here is another room done with the navy upholstery.
Again...trimmed out in a light color. This could even be used in a dining area for seating.
Of course you can't leave West Elm without looking at their great accessories.
No secret that I love some black and white goodness. The woven trays are a favorite also.
I used one on an ottoman here...
And in a bar setting!
How about the stackable boxes
Yes to those please.
So about my weekend.....here are a few iPhone pictures to sum it up.
I usually stack a bunch of pillows on the LR sofa to keep this girl off but on Friday she decided it was easy to kick those suckers out of the way:)
On Saturday I dressed her up in her best funeral/mourning outfit in honor of the loss of my friends dog.
I sent this to her and she said she looked like an old man. I'm just busy....busy.
She managed to find a puppy that needed a home so things are better now....
Patchy smiled when she heard that news....
I tried this Bruschetta recipe from Mary Ann at Classic Casual Home and let me tell you....there were no leftovers!
And...dug out a collection of amber bottles for my mantel.
