Hi there! I’m back with a few of my favorite things on this fine Friday. Can you believe we’ve made it to Friday? Yay! I wish I could say I was doing amazing things this weekend, but alas, I’m working. It’s not all bad, I’m hostessing at an amazing model home this weekend. I do love elements of my job.
Without further adieu, I’m introducing a new feature here on Fridays. I’m calling it Friday Favorites, it’s a twist on my very old Friday Finds that every blogger is doing these days. Don’t get me wrong, but if we are all doing it, how does one post stand out over another?
First up, it seems everyone has discovered Chair Whimsy. I’m seeing her colorful amazing chairs popping up all over instagram and Facebook. I gotta say I love her style. She uses an array of color and pattern that takes a regular vintage chair and makes it something more interesting. Her chairs become the focal point in a room. You know the DIY’er in me is scheming to figure out how to create a similar look with chairs of my own. (photo credit)
I’m also crushing on these gorgeous blooms I spotted prior to a wedding being set up. They are so beautiful aren’t they? I want to hit the local florist and load up on bright pink roses for the house.
We stopped in at the art museum last week to check out a few of the exhibits and I stumbled across the event crew setting up this incredible lighting structure with a dance floor to be put in underneath it. I didn’t get to tick around to see the completed display but I imagine it was simply magical. They were hanging edison bulbs from a scaffolding over head and draped random bulbs with bright colorful cloth lanterns. How delightful would that be to dance under for your first dance as husband and wife?
On a recent trip to HomeGoods I found this navy pillow with the ever classic Greek Key motif adorning it. It’s perfect for my guest bedroom and I’m kicking myself for not picking it up. Perhaps, I’m talented enough to make it. Of course I am.
As the temperatures begin to rise it occurs to me that it’s almost time for my favorite spring and summer cocktail, the classic G&T. I discovered Fever Tree’s Elderflower tonic water last year and it’s now the only tonic water I’ll use with my Gin & Tonic. Kevin always kids me that it’s an old persons drink. So what? One can not go wrong with a classic drink when summer arrives.
Is it so bad that I’m loving these rich vibrant colors from Essie this season? I’m sure they are not from this year’s spring collection, but some times you need to buck the trend and enjoy what ever it is you love. Being trendy is so not Wendy.
