Can't Get You Out of My Head

I spied a pair of these, at what has become a favorite place of mine, Julie's Upscale Retail in Door County. 

My finds from Julie's are worth their very own blog post.  Hubby just picked up a small car load this weekend. Stay tuned for more on that! 

I'm picturing them, in our future Door County home of course, used like this:

Or this...

Or here...

And quite frankly, it is killing me. I want, I want, I want! 

But at this point, it's all hypothetical, that one day, in the near future, I will have the (high ceiling, fairly large proportioned) room that could pull these off with smashing success...madness I tell you!  I just hate to think of losing out, on what most certainly could indeed be a once in a lifetime opportunity. A bit dramatic, I know. 

But I get like that with the old, the unique, the antique, the real deal. 

The inspiration behind the Pottery Barn...

Sigh. Nothing compares to the original does it? 

I suppose, I could always just put them at the end of my long, winding drive, with the stone gate. 

Which is also pretend, at this point. 

I am alone in this affliction? 

Now don't go buying them out from under me without a "are you sure you're aren't going to snatch them up first?" warning.  I have Julie's on speed dial. :)

Friday Love

I think I just might need me a pink, velvet tufted cocktail ottoman.

Enjoy your weekend!

Under the Weather

Hello? Hello? Yes, I'm here, I'm here! Oh goodness me. So sorry I'm late!

I'm going to blame the cause of my long absence or tardiness on blog posts on...motherhood... A 17 month old who has discovered my keyboard. A 4 year old who wants to play "fort" under my legs whenever I sit down.  Top that off with the holiday madness and two weeks of in-law relatives staying with us and I was mentally kaput.

But here I am. With a nasty cold. But ready to get back on track. Yesterday I took 2 hot showers to ease congestion.

Unfortunately, not in this shower. I wish this was my shower. It's not.

Sorry, this is one of those oldies from the files...I don't remember where...

At present, our current sole full bath is also our master bath and the whole room might just fit within the confines of the aforementioned dream shower.

The one redeeming feature in our bathroom had been Kelly Wrestler's Imperial Trellis wallpaper in the soft aqua colorway. A huge investment, oddly, for such a small room.  But at present, it is peeling off the wall and sort of corroding to make a long story short. Perhaps not the best choice for a bathroom. Just so you know. But Imperial Trellis is "out" anyway, right?

That's it for now...the 4 year old is getting rowdy underneath the fort walls...
