Things I am Loving Now.

~ Hello friends! ~

Today I thought I would start a new, fun little regular post featuring some of the things that I already own and LOVE, or things have caught my eye lately, and I am still daydreaming about. 

I thought it would be fun to do a post like this once a month. Lord knows I have enough inspiration photos between Pinterest (Please check out my boards, and follow along with me!) and my iPhone (I just click away when I am out shopping, shooting whatever I like).

Here we go...things I am wearing today...

 I mix Jo Malone Wild Bluebell, and Orange Blossom for a fresh summer scent. Heaven. Bought these at Nordi's.  (That would be Nordstrom. -Lisa speak de-coded.)

Havianas. Perfect for running around town here in So Cal. These are called Havinana Black Lace, bought at Macys.

Also at Nordi' cute woven fedora. Mine is just a bit different. I bought it last month, and cant find it on the website now. Here is one that is similar...

Great fix for a lazy hair day!

These bags are things I love, but I am still dreaming about. I think I am going to order the first one. The orange Ikat from Layla Grace.

 This one is fun too, and could transition into fall quite nicely.

Most of you know that I am making some changes in my kitchen due to a huge leak. I am taking the opportunity to update things that did not get damaged, but that I am ready to change. 
 I love this farmhouse copper apron sink. I am still trying to figure out if I can make it work with the current granite. We will see. I may end up with something entirely different!
 A monogram wall. This would be so cute in my office!

Here are some fun things I have seen while out shopping around town... 
 This fun chair was at Anthro. (De-code for my mother, Anthropologie.) I saw something similar on the Nate show a while back. One of his design team members stitched together scraps of her son's jeans from his very first pair, to his teen years, and used them to recover a chair. I thought it was brillant, and so sentimental! And then, not a month latter, I walked into Anthro and saw this. I just love the idea of using my son's jeans somehow.
Maybe even a pillow? Who knows. I will save them now for sure!

Speaking of pillows...
I keep thinking about this pillow at Target, so I am going back for it TODAY!! 

 How cute are these Mercury Glass Shells from Pottery Barn?!

 And while we are in sparkle mode, I love these bronze and pewter wedges by Bandolino at Macy's. 
 Another cute Target find, Birds on a Wire pillow.

Also at Target, this Privet House Dinnerware. Or anything Privet House at Target right now! LOVE!

FABULOUS!!!  This beauty could be a kitchen contender. But, not with that copper sink! This pendant is at Layla Grace.

These Moroccan Pendants are great for outdoors or in. Found at Pottery Barn.

Cute preppy sheets for the little guy.
Pottery Barn Kids, of course!

And finally, I found a great new primer for under makeup. It gives an incredibly silky finish to the skin, so makeup just glides on...

So that's a wrap on the first installment of Things I am Loving Now! 
I hope you are having a fabulous start to the week! 
See you tomorrow!
Linking to the following...


  1. I love the farmhouse sink!!! The hat that covers the bad hair is so cute and the bird pillow would look great with my decor. Love this post :)

    1. I know, right? I love a farmhouse sink! So nice and roomy!! You should go online and look for the pillow. Sometimes they run online coupons for pillows too!

  2. I will be dreaming right alongside you! Loving that ikat bag!! And, Havianas are the best!!!

    1. I love the summer casual vibe of both of them!

  3. Hey....congrats on your feature over at Rhoda's! I love that ikat bag. And the Anthro chair!


    1. I could totally see a chair or a pillow like that in your guest room or playroom. Thanks for the heads up about the feature. Yesterday was such a busy day, that I had not been blog hopping yet, so I didn't even know! That made my night! :-)

  4. Love Love Love Joe Malone!

  5. So very cute! I love the chair, and of course the sink. I keep toying with doing a monogram wall too, I just can't decide where!

    1. Thanks, Jamie!

      I just bought 5 different size W's to incorporate into our family photo gallery wall I am working on for the downstairs hall. I think it will be cute.

      I am still tempted to do a small monogram wall with my first initial 'L' up in my office somewhere. Stay tuned...

      Thanks so much for stopping by!

  6. Oh such great pics. I think there are several things there that I would love too. Thanks for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty
