    How to Converse With Style.

    The look on my face when my vintage rotary telephone arrived in the mail was priceless (a surprise from my sister as a part of my Christmas gift from LNC home). I’ve always wanted one, but didn’t know they existed for purchase. I have an appreciation for the finer things in life and a knack for antique additions to my guest room (Remember my post about ‘The Suite Life?”). The best part about it is that it actually works and I use it which makes it all that better (yes, I still have a landline- I’m an old school gal). The intricate carvings and designs on it are flawless. However,…

    All These Little Things: Making Small Changes Before Selling Your Home

    Sarah has contributed to Little Blue Book on this post! Selling your home is always going to be a massive task however you look at it. But there are things you can do to break it down into manageable chunks, and one such a thing is to change little parts of your house before selling it on. When it comes to selling your home, it’s important to remember that you don’t necessarily have to add a lot of style to your home because you’re trying to make it a blank canvas for people to envision their ideal home. So little changes mean a lot in this instance and here are some things to…

    Kitchen-MAID Mixer!

    I absolutely LOVE my Kitchenaid Mixer that my sister gave me as a house warming present a couple years ago. The fact that it is Tiffany Blue is just the cherry on top! No more kneading the dough with your bare hands or worrying about standing there with a handheld mixture while you could be prepping other things or worse… attempting to mix with your own hands and killing your biceps. The price is definitely a reason why many people don’t buy it. I find that it is actually very well worth it- great money spent. Here’s why: Saves time when you are in a time crunch. You can make…

    Around the World in 60 Seconds

    Ever since I was younger, I always said when I grow up I’d buy a vintage world globe for decor. I don’t know, but there is something about having the entire world there to look at & spin around, point to a random place and take a trip there. It’s also astonishing how many adults do not know where many countries are- even I have to google “world map” frequently. There are plenty of ways to decorate a room with a globe, but my favorite is one globe that is not the focal point, but a decor piece near the couch where I can touch and look at it: Of course there…

    SATio Furniture

    You know that time of the year when the seasons are transitioning from winter to spring and it’s 40 degrees in the morning but 80 degrees throughout the day and you never know how to dress or whether to keep your AC or heater on? I’ve always disliked ‘that time of year’ except for one thing- being able to sit outside on the patio in the PERFECT weather conditions. No humidity, it’s not too hot, it’s not chilly and it has the perfect breeze. Sitting out on the patio takes me back to my childhood when we used to grill outside or sit with my grandparents and play cards. So…

    Mirror Mirror On The Wall

    My hubby and I are Restoration Hardware fanatics. I first discovered Restoration Hardware 5 years ago when I was living in Michigan which was when I introduced it to my husband and the fascination begun. We both knew whenever we got our first house together that it would be restored (no pun intended) with Restoration Hardware inspired themes. It was funny because when we got our first place together, our first argument as a married couple was about this leaning mirror behind our couch. My husband wanted it there and I thought it looked extremely odd because it was this nasty yellow color. So, we finally agreed (of course after…

    PRADA MARFA

    Follow my blog with Bloglovin I first learned about the infamous ‘Prada Marfa’ sign from the show Gossip Girl where it was displayed in Lily’s penthouse. I loved it and vowed to myself to buy it one day when I had a house (I got lucky in that my husband feels the same)! I wanted to learn more about the artwork before purchasing it and to my surprise, it had a very interesting history. Prada Marfa is actually a building in between the cities of Valentine, Texas and Marfa, Texas which was designed to emulate a Prada store. It was created in 2005 by artists Elmgreen and Dragset. The building…

    The Suite Life

    Follow my blog with Bloglovin “Well, when I get it the only thing that does any good is to jump in a cab and go to Tiffany’s. Calms me down right away. The quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there. If I could find a real-life place that’d make me feel like Tiffany’s, then I’d buy some furniture and give the cat a real name!” -Holly Golightly How delightful would it be to live inside a blue Tiffany & Co. box? The St. Regis in New York on 5th avenue can make this possible in their Tiffany’s designer suite designed by John Loring (Tiffany &…
