Happenings


A quiet long weekend was exactly what I needed so I’m feeling quite happy on this Monday Tuesday morning.   I was able to push a few projects along in the loft, do some fantastic shopping and spend time with good friends.  A girl can’t ask for much more, can she?

Here’s a little round-up of some new happenings around the loft.

#1 While shopping for vintage accessories for my clients I scooped up the most beautiful little rug for my bathroom.  

#2 Finally got around to hanging some art on my Blue wall.  

#3  Picked up a sweet little incense holder at that movie set sale a few weeks back.  I paired it with my coral (previously on the bookshelf) and I’m diggin the new coffee table vignette.

#4 Three words: Vintage Suzani Tablecloth. 

I hope you had a great Labor Day weekend too!  And since I don’t think I say it enough… Thanks so much for stopping by my little spot.  I really do appreciate each and every one of you readers, commenters and lurkers.  Keep it snazzy.

  1. Sounds like the perfect weekend to me too–that rug is so pretty! Love all the vignettes, and coral on the coffee table is just what I’ve got right now too. It adds so much texture and shape interest.

    I got to paint my daughter’s table and chairs that light gray blue I mentioned a while ago. Looks really good! Also put that color on a big canvas for the living room!

  2. Sounds like a great weekend to me, I love the little rug you found for your bathroom and your artwork really pops against the blue wall!

  3. Love it all! Especially that rug and suzani tablecloth – wowza. Your little peaks are such a tease. I want more!

  4. Nice finds. The rug is magical. I would try to ride it. JK. Love the art with the two bulls. They’re all pretty neato.

  5. love the little rug. I’m a complete sucker for old, worn rugs this size….donna

  6. I honestly don’t know what I love more, that rug or the color of your gallery wall! The blue is so stunning. Great finds!

  7. LOVE that color on the wall and your rug, truly beautiful. What a picture perfect way to usher in a new season!

    You sure packed a lot of hot in one little ol’ weekend.

    The rug is a super score!

    [sigh] So much color and prettiness. Love the new rug!

  10. Glad everyone liked the rug! I almost walked away from it because the seller wanted $30 for it and I thought it was too expensive. Hehe.

  11. Great job on the projects! I love the color blue on your wall. And I also love finding new spaces for my coral. It works everywhere! :)

  16. Your loft is so worldly…love it. I’m so tempted to paint a wall cobalt blue. Your frames definitely complete it. Nice! xoxo

    Well, clearly the consensus is that the rug is a hit! But, I’ll still add my two cents worth, it’s fabulous!

  18. You have a lot of fans here. :) I have some coral just like that (unfortunately in storage in tnhe US) and it looks great on your coffee table! I am jealous of the movie set sale – what cool finds…and $30 for that rug???!!! Amazing

  19. Hi Naomi!! Not sure if you got my reply back to your comment on my engagement post but it is such a small small world!!! I heart those Chapracki twins, we spend every holiday with them and they were awesome in our wedding party. I told Michael about your comment and he says hello and totally remembers you! Such a funny, sweet small world. Let me know if you are ever in the city as I would love to meet up sometime!
