I've been eyeing this tray...

You can't have too many trays. This statement especially rings true when you lay eyes on this gorgeous lucite number from Iomoi. Not only are the designs really playful and unique, but the hardware is a real stunner. I've seen my fair share of trays, but this one really takes the cake.
Maybe this should go on my xmas list?
Take a look a few of their designs...

What's Cooking

Amongst other things, I've been making an effort to try new recipes. I feel like I always make the same 5 or so dishes and how boring is that? This was prompted by an attempt to clean out my collection of Martha Stewart Everyday Food magazine...a very sentimental collection I had since 2006. As it collected dust, I decided to sift through and save the good stuff, pitch the rest. So with the saved recipes, I'm making something new each week.
See why it's so hard to throw away? It's cheerful just looking at it - and the size? I mean, genius.
A delicious success that I made this week: Corn Chowder with Zucchini & Orzo (see below)

A few weeks ago I made these Zucchini Fries and they were so tasty and addicting.

Stay tuned for more...

Starburst Lighting

Aren't these starburst sconces great? They are new at Wisteria {here} and only $69!

They'd be beautiful in a hallway, flanking a mirror or art collage. Love these.

Trying to get back on track....

I love blogging but time really slips away from me and I hate to see weeks go by with out a post...anyway, as I've said before, time to get back on track.
A few times a day something will cross my mind that I want to blog about, whether it's design related or not. Today I'm just in aw of the baby items now being carried by Jcrew. It's just too cute.

Gingham in all forms

 Getting {back} in to gingham over here. Personal style and interiors too...something classic-fancy and fun about it.

gingham / gingham

Gingham decor
Large gingham curtains - I can't help myself...

Juxtaposition at it's best - who knew a fancy chandy and red checkered gingham could work together?

Adore this look!

This is close to the theme I have for Jake's next bedroom...especially loving the sheets!

Around Here

Happenings around here...
Enjoy your long weekend!
My door knocker was installed and I love it. Sir Fidel looks so serious and distinguished...unlike my zoo of a household!
I scored this vase at Anthropologie in the sale section - only $5!
These quotes crack me up - this one in particular. LOL
I found these at Whole Foods and they are sooo good! If you are some one who needs a little sweet bite of something after dinner {like me!} these will fit the bill.

Pretty Packaging

Have you heard of Mast Brothers Chocolate {here}? Not only should you check out this brother duo for the delicious chocolate they create, but the packaging is so charming. As in I want to blow it up in to a roll of wall paper...especially the anchors! These would be darling in a gift basket or make a fun hostess gift.

HomeGoods Fix

I hit up HomeGoods this week to see the latest and greatest. Came across a few items worth mentioning...
If you need a basic grass cloth rug for an entry or mud room, they had tons!

I was totally digging this. No need for a rug right now but I quickly worked up a scheme in my head that would pair well with this geometric beauty. 

Another great rug...see my little helper to the left?

I'm obsessed with these ribbon sets. Perfect for the gift wrap collection.

They had a slew of upholstered ottomans hanging around...I could live with the grey ikat.

Row and rows of flat weave rugs.
I came home with 2 of these - $25 each, not bad.
They are living here at the moment...this mantle needs some love. Oh and this is my living room.

I don't blog about this space much b/c it sort of came together randomly with odds and ends but I'm starting to love it. I always wanted a navy room. Needs more love, but as I say, it's {as is every room} a work in progress.
