Things I Love Today: July 07

First off, let me squelch those rumors that no, I have not been abducted by aliens. No, I’m not in hiding from the paparazzi, and no, the mini’s haven’t left me hogtied in a closet somewhere waiting to be discovered (although I’m fairly certain I’ve only narrowly escaped that last one pretty recently). I'm also not passed out in a drunken stupor somewhere either (although that is not to say I haven't considered it). I’ve just been busy with life and out of town company. If you’ve emailed me and I haven’t gotten back to you, then please forgive me and know I will get back to you. I promise.

Now, in light of me finally showing my face around here (this is so very unlike me, I know, but I’m trying to make myself relax and not feel like I HAVE to blog every day. Because I don’t, right?), I really wanted to share some really exciting Things I Love Today. Very summery, very fun and fresh, and oh so lovely!


What could be better than fabric and embroidery monogrammed table lamps? Not too much, that’s what. And you better believe we’ll be working on this project ourselves too so stick around, peeps. In the meantime, hop on over to Brownstone and Cottage to check them out for yourself.

A reader turned me onto these monogrammed camera bags from Doona Downey several months ago and I love them! Granted, I have a bit too much camera equipment for a bag of this size, but when she does the custom camera backpacks with individual compartments for all my lenses and paraphernalia, I’ll be all over it.
I saw this little hand-hooked pillow over at Coast and Cottage and it had my friend Cresta written all over it. I loved it at first sight! This could very easily be her girl Lucy in that sailboat, and it would go swimmingly in her family room!

I know it! I REALLY think I can pull this one off too. It should not be that difficult at all so it's going on my "to do" list.

You beat me! That was tomorrow's post on my blog of market findings! I love them and decided to get 2 for my mantel. The guys that own the store are adorable and were so nice!!! I'm sure yours will be so cute too! I just don't have the time....guess I will just buy them!

Oh, what a cute camera bag! I would force-fit our D100 in there just so I could tote it around it style. :)

My friend Moira had a lampshade monogrammed for her daughter which was also fabulous. And I love that pillow!
