If I Had a Million Dollars...

There is a blog that I follow called My Sweet Savannah and she posted a link earlier to a website that is just amazing. The stuff is SO beautiful, but, unfortunately, a little out of my budget. But it really is worth taking a look at. It definitely gave me some inspiration!

SLAH is Going to Make Me Go Broke!

The Spring Southern Living At Home catalog came out a few weeks ago and it is a feast for the eyes! After a few seasons of nothing to get excited about, this spring I think they picked the items just for me. I want it all!!!! But here are some of the highlights:
Chesapeake Flatware-Love it! It would tie my dishes and my flatware together so nicely. Also loving the appetizer plate, more on that in a minute.
Covington Accent Tray: Love it! In the catalog they also have the tray and the appetizer plate from above paired together and they look fabulous. We'll talk more about these dishes in a minute too.

Emerson Stemware: Love it! As if I don't have enough stemware already! The shape of these is so beautiful. They look like a candlestick you can drink wine out of. I may need to sell some of my stemware on Ebay to make room for these, but I'll definitely be getting them.
Estate Bathroom Collection: Love it! I must have these simply because I have all of the other Estate pieces.

Orleans Vase Set: Love it! So beautiful and delicate, these little bud vases can also be used as place cards.

Terrace Appetizer Plates: Ah, here are those appetizer plates again. Love it! What more can I say?
And the pièce de résistance:

Villa Stoneware: LOVE IT!!!! These dishes are my soulmate. The dishes, flatware, and accent tray are the most perfect combination I have ever seen.
So obviously, I love it all! I will definitely be having a SLAH party or two in order to try to afford some of these beauties. If you want to salivate through the catalog you can look at it online at www.southernlivingathome.com and click Browse Our Catalog. And BTW I am a SLAH consultant so if you want to have a party I'd be happy to do it for you. You can always place a catalog order through me as well.

Love At First Sight

On a recent shopping trip to Bed Bath & Beyond with my sister we saw something that literally stopped us dead in our tracks. It was the most beautiful shower curtain ever! The picture just doesn't do it justice, but it gives you an idea. The blue is deeper and sort of shimmery. The pattern is a brown velvet.

Fortunately, the color would have clashed with the color of the walls in both of my bathrooms. I say "fortunately" because I just purchased two new shower curtains for my bathrooms in the last month and I would have HAD to buy this one had it not been for the obviously color clash. My sister has decided that it will work in her bathroom though. I did get the hand towel while we were there for my master bath.
The handtowel looked so wonderful in my bathroom that I've decided to go back and get a few of the accessories too. I hope that they'll look good with the wall color but I'm not positive. I love them so much though that I have to give them a try! I especially love the toothbrush holder. Just look at the shape and design of it! Its heavenly!!!

A friend (who is having a baby) and I were discussing baby bedding the other day and I told her I would post the pics of the ones that I have picked out for whenever (if ever) I have a baby. These are the two that I have fallen in love with, one of a boy and one for a girl. Of course, I'd rather have the one for a girl, but I guess that's all up to God! By the time I actually do have a baby I will have probably changed my mind but if I were having one right now these are definitely the ones I would choose. I don't care for how they decorated the boy's room, there are some things that I would do differently. But I love everything about the girl's room. It is exactly how I would want to do it. Anyway, just thought I would share.
