For Jules...

Finally, for Jules, I have come up with a suggestion for how to add that "wow" factor to what already is a fabulous space. As you can see Julian has impeccable taste, from his art to his table and chairs to his newly remodeled kitchen. It's a great space as is, which made it difficult for me to improve upon. And, with Julian being a male, well, the pressure was on. I decided to keep it simple. Just adding a few touches of wow that were simple, but bold and hopefully masculine.

My suggestions for Jules are quite simple. Pick up this "wowing" Vintage Red Wing Smart Set Large Salad Bowl. The colors are perfect and the graphics, well, they wow. It can be used multipurposely - 1st as an accessory by displaying it on the counter (I would purchase a stand/easel to sit it on) and for serving those delicious salads he's known to whip up. Jules, you can purchase this bowl with the buy it now option on Ebay for just $32.99. That's a deal. If you like it, since it's vintage, I'd purchase it ASAP because it will be gone and there aren't alot lying around. :)

Second, I would remove the art to the right of the sink and replace it with three of these 5 1/4" black square plates at just $4.69 each. Or, I'd remove the art to the right of the sink, leaving that wall bare and hang the plates over the sink. I've tried to think of something clever and wowing to glue in the center of them but nothing has stood out for me yet. If anyone else has an idea for this, please share. But even without the extra, the black square plates alone will make a cool pop against your wall, plus add a touch of masculinity. :)

And that's it. Plain and simple and wow. But as always, these are merely my suggestions. I'm sure others will have clever ideas and wowing options to share in the comments below. :)

There's no place like home...

Although I am not a fan of type on decorative objects (I know, I know) etsy seller pillowhead's "Home" pillow speaks to me. It just says"home". :) Enjoy! (She also makes the floral printed pillow as well.)

Spoon Feed Me...

So, lately I've got spoons on the mind, from Heather's new tea towels, to Lady Di's great find, to my husband cooking me dinner and asking "Where's the wooden spoons?" and my sheepish reply of "We don't have any." I feel as though my life is is not quite full without these wooden spoons, being that everyone else seems to have a fabulous collection and I have not one.

Ebay, as always, has the cure to what ails me. A spectacular array of spoons for sale from ebay seller winningtreasures. I'm pondering whether I should actually buy them, or simply frame the picture. ;) Enjoy!
