finally! a beautiful, sunny day in the high 70’s! it’s about time. i’m hoping it will help flowers grow. how are you enjoying my magazine finds? good? or is it getting boring? well, either way, only a couple more days. and i’m having fun, so i guess that’s what matters most.
no. 1 – Better Homes and Gardens
remember the bedroom i showed you yesterday? well, i found another image with the same artwork. cool. right? well i actually really, really like it, so i did a little research and found it! can you believe it?
here’s close up…
turns out it’s a needlepoint of silk and wool. and of course, i ‘love’ it. and of course, its $2,750. ouch. i guess i’ll be waiting until i become rich and famous or until they turn it into a poster of some sort.
no. 2 – House Beautiful
i was really happy to stumble across this picture.
the yellowy orange they used on the walls is almost identical to the yellowy orange i used in my dining room. see…
some days i love the color, other days i want to paint it over with a creamy (almost white) yellow. eventhough, everyone that sees it says they like it… and it’s so cheery. when i found the picture in above, i was actually convinced i did choose the right color … but, it just needed finished. see the detail modeling they added? do you like it? should i do it? i think i should.
no. 3 – Food Network Magazine
it’s been a while since i’ve had/made a really good guacamole. or should i say the perfect guacamole?
my sister-in-law was talking about this recipe the other day. i sort of forgot about it, then as i was flipping through my magazines, there it was! so as soon as i can get my hands on some ripe avocados i will be making this. (although, i’m not the biggest fan of cilantro…. maybe i have to reduce the amount a bit.) do you like cilantro?
no. 4 – Food Network Magazine
i saw this amazing herb pot (three pictures down) and just loved it! i did a little research and found its from a company called ‘perch!‘. they have the neatest stuff. here are my favs…
goodbye grandma’s old crocheted pot hanger, and hello modern ceramic wonderfulness!
i’m pretty sure these are the coolest salt and pepper shakers i have EVER seen. they’re called ‘shake-a-leg’ hehe. they also have a set called bonnie and clyde which are pretty cool too.
the planters that let me to this cool company.
and the coolest bowl.
i must warn you though… while these items are super cool. they come at a price, but i’m sure they are worth it!
