These are a few of my favorite things...

Pottery Barn velvet curtains and white faux-fur throws...
As we'll be knocking out a wall and gaining a window in the master bedroom, we needed to match the third window treatment to the other two we already finished. Pottery Barn to the rescue...got one more velvet panel in pewter. I also had to have the coziest throw EVER in white to keep me warm this winter. I can't wait to curl up in it by the fire with my babes.

I also have my eye on two other fantastic PB finds that are over the budget for now (here's hoping for a sale!):
-The velvet curtains in espresso for the living room. We need two 100" x 96" panels and PB actually carries this size.
-The new Cecil rug. Love it! Love it! Love it!
The design is such a unique take on the Arts &Crafts style, combining beautiful shades of greens, oranges and reds in a graphic yet sophisticated pattern.


  1. Sorry, but your title totally had me singing Family Force 5 - My Favorite Things... I can't help it. I will say that I do like the rug :)

  2. I second that emotion. I have a PB rug that I really love (purchased for a total steal). I'm loving these lights at C&B: http://www.crateandbarrel.com/family.aspx?c=1240&f=31066. Wish they had a nice mica shade, or something glass, though.

    I will get new pics of the paint stripping up soon. Setting a goal of stripping the entire dining room (ok, it's a small room) in the month of January.

  3. Oh yes, I am loving that chandelier too! It reminds me of the one at Restoration Hardware only WAAAY more afordable! http://www.restorationhardware.com/rh/catalog/product/product.jsp?productId=prod1593088&navCount=1
    Good Luck with your stripping. If it goes well for you I might brave giving it a try. :)

    Oh, also here are small mica shades you could swap out: http://www.lampsplus.com/Products/Hexagonal-Mica-Lamp-Shade-3x5-25x4-5-Clip-On__44149.html

    I really loving online shopping.
