Is it too early to think about Christmas Wish Lists? Judging by the fact that all the department stores have been decked out since the day after Halloween, I’d say wish (or perhaps shop) away!
Clearly, this list is for the mostly casual girl that likes a little sparkle and a nice, red lip from time to time. Hmmm, I wonder who I was channeling when I put this together.
Take a look at some of these can’t fail items, if you need inspiration for your own list (I’m sorry, I do not comprehend this concept) or if you are shopping for some special chick(s) this year. (Shop them on my Polyvore page.)
Anything I’m missing? What’s at the top of your list? Let me know in the comments below!
You might find this so random, but today I am coveting a Pergola.
We had the lovliest time on the back deck of some friend’s of ours last night. They had little round lights outlining the deck, which provided the perfect amount of ambient lighting for late night cocktails on a hot, summer night.
We too, have a fabulous outdoor space for entertaining and while it’s practically perfect in every way, I have this vision for a gorgeous pergola to semi-cover our patio. I want it to be strung with little white lights and maybe even have a ceiling fan to keep us cool when it gets beastly hot in August.
I also want it to have the same ivy growing in and around it just like I have crawling up the walls of my home.
What an outdoor paradise in the canopy of tiny lights and lush greenery!
This one is absolutely gorgeous and is like adding square footage to your living space. But maybe too-muchy like being in your family room.
I love the lights and the chandalier, presumably with votives for extra mood lighting.
But this space is absolutely UH-MAZING! I must admit however, that it may not be just the pergola that has me so in love… it might also be the stone patio and the table for dining al fresco.
After four seriously stressful days of trying to renew my LBS.com domain, I have finally succeeded. If you missed Happy 125th Birthday Eiffel Tower! this week, it’s now available, and I promise to get some more good posts up as soon as possible!
Happy Friday (or Saturday for you far away bloggy friends!) and thanks, as always, for reading LittleBlackSweats!
I also have Spring Fever, which makes me want to liven things up around my house.
My living room has been a tough room for a long time. It’s always felt “unfinished.” I have finally decided to pay some attention to it. I started with the easy part. Pillows!
We added an adorable little chest, which we painted bright turquoise against our paler blue walls. It’s got gold accents, which look great against our straw-colored sofa.
Now, I’m wanting to update lighting. I want something a little more modern to juxtapose with our mostly French-style antiques. I think after scouring site after site for lighting that is fabulous, but also affordable (really? $700 for lamps?!), I have finally found what I’m looking for… enter Pepita glass lamps from you’ll never guess where!
