Quick update here on what I picked up at Linen Chest on a recent visit. I should preface this all by saying that you will notice a trend in what you see… and it will come as no surprise to you all!
As you may remember from a previous post, this was my wish list. Lots of black and white and drinking utensils, remember?
Well, this is what I actually got:
Ok, so just one item from the wish list, but that’s because I fell in love with new stuff once I was actually in the store!
These tea towels screamed my name as soon as I walked in. They’re super thick, have a great pattern, and hello… black and white! It’s only appropriate that I should have these in a kitchen decked out in the two colours, right?
The mugs… well I’ve had my eye on these two mugs for quite some time. They are Kate Spade, and every ounce adorable! The polka dots were a no brainer, but the cha-cha-cha mug was just so much fun! I couldn’t resist their little gold shoes. WAY too cute.
The orchids are actually going to be gifted to a special friend. Orchids were the flower of choice at her recent wedding reception, and I’m going to give her these as part of housewarming present as a little reminder of their special day. As soon as I saw these, I knew. I considered real orchids, of course, but they bloom like never. These will be alive and blooming foreverrrrrr!!!!
Finally, the peonies are for me. These are basically everyone’s most favourite flower ever, and I totally get why. Sadly, they bloom for about 2 weeks and then nothing… I almost never find them at local flower shops, and when I do they are crazy expensive, so again… these will be alive and blooming forever. Just the way I like them! I put these on my desk because I’m pretty sure Alex has no desire to see any more plants of flowers of any kind anywhere else in the house. They are literally in every room!
I love that each thing I got has a bit of whimsy. They all make me smile, and I think a home should be filled with things that are beautiful and special to you.
Oh, and if you’re wondering about the awesome quote on my desk, that’s a little gem from Topknot Events on Etsy. Sara’s shop is on vacay at the moment for wedding season, but she’ll be back with more awesomeness, so watch out!
Also, congrats to Summer P. who won the $50 giveaway! Thanks to all of you awesome people for entering.
Have a great weekend!
