Anne recently told me her husband thinks that using trash/found items is insane and she gets NEW things because of it. Must be nice right? I do like the occasional new item. My mother did housewarm me with these pretties when I first moved in
Messy house pic! yes, I am a human being, sometimes my house is messy. Shock! Gasp! I know. these blue cubes are lovely. They are from target and they are my copycatchic version of the much pricier crate and barrel version. I used to keep reusable grocery bags in one and blankets in the other. Now I keep airbnb.com guest supplies in one and the other has home decor items and fabric I have yet to use!
This duvet cover is from Ikea. It is aptly named Andrea! Who knew I was swedish? Seriously Ikea have you really run out of names? Or did you just not want to name me Desiree because it sounded too “ethnic” ( thank you father!)… You might also have seen this duvet cover on television. It is the mom’s duvet on the great british tv show Skins in season 3 and 4. It is also the oldest daughters duvet on Modern family. Both ladies obviously have impeccable taste. Note that the boat pic used to live over the bed. I change stuff around….A LOT….often after trips to Maine… The Andrea sheets are my fall-winter sheets. The vintage marimekko I have decided are the spring sheets.
So, yes while I love old and foraged I do appreciate some new things from time to time! As my fave tune goes from brownies… Make new friends, but keep the old one is silver and the others gold!
