Have You Seen It?!

I'm talking about the new Restoration Hardware catalog. I'd just like to say ****droooool****
Aren't these steel beds and the zinc dresser fantastic?!

...and we all know I'm a sucker for a linen slipcover.
This desk is hilarious, and really tickled my fancy. I'd love to know who is buying it, and where they're putting it. My brother-in-law has a plane, but I don't think he'd put this desk in his house, no matter how cool it is:
This couch reminds me of MY couch, so of course now I want to own that awesome coffee table...
This is sleek and lovely:
The whole catalog has this time-worn washed out wood theme going on, that I'm really loving.
I think I may have posted this pic before. I love a winged bed!
This desk appealed to me right away, and then I looked at the description, and it's a copy of a garment table--I'm assuming one that used to have a sewing machine on it? See? It was meant to be! I love that mirror above the desk too.
Tuft me, baby!

LOVE this table, and would love to have a party around it:
Some day I'm going to find me one of these pharmacist cabinets at an antique store, and I'm going to strip it, and it's going to look just like this:
(hey, a girl can dream...)
This mirror: *swoon* again:
Oh how I wish I could pull off this look in my house. I just always gravitate to color, though. I can't help myself. Color makes me happy! Maybe I'll save this look for my beach house:
(like i said...a girl can dream, right?!)
More tables waiting for me to host dinner parties:

...and last but not least, a closer look at the zinc night stand. I love zinc. I once saw a zinc bathtub at an antique store in Hudson, NY, and fell in love:
Go to RestorationHardware.com to see more of this deliciousness. I'm only like 10 pages into the catalog, and this is how excited I got! :) (Oh, to have millions of dollars to blow....)

Miraculous Paper Sculptures

Around the holidays, when I was searching the 'net for ideas for my vintage book wreaths, I came across some of the most amazing paper art that I have ever seen. The artist who did the little bird in a tree below is Su Blackwell. You must go check out her website for more of her amazing work. It's whimsical, beautiful, and sometimes even a little bit sad....

This light from Paper Couture is genius, and I'm thinking I'd like to make one some time:
Another artist, Oona Patterson, creates the most amazing things!
These next three are completely different, and are by San Francisco artist Jeff Nishinaka:
I love the soft roundness of his pieces.

I got this pic from DesignModo.com, which is a design website of some sort. I think this was part of an advertising campaign or something. Sorry I'm short on credit for this one. But I just liked the more retro feel of this work:
I think this last one is my favorite from Su Blackwell....a little cabin in the woods:
Someday I'll have one of these....

Winter Wonderland

I probably should have brought my pots in....*sigh* I hope too many of them don't get ruined.
Maybe when it warms up I can rescue them.

My little Japanese maple is so picturesque:
Remember you can click the photos to see them larger.
They really look much more impressive that way.

I love this stand of young cedars in my neighbor's yard:
These are lily seed pods. These lilies are incredible when in bloom.
I'll have to get a good picture this summer:
I felt badly for the birds today, with all the snow on the ground. Thank goodness all of my neighbors have bird feeders. I think that's why there were so many birds around this afternoon while I was shoveling. I'm glad SOMEbody's taking care of the poor things!
I took this picture from the end of my driveway.
I hadn't shoveled myself all the way out at this point:
If you've got snow, as I know many of you out there do, make the most of it and enjoy it! Spring will come. I promise!

*all of my photos were edited with Photoshop Elements 8.0 and Lightroom 2.0

Snowy Morning in NY

I love waking up to a snowy morning when the snow has managed to stick on everything and stay there! It's a winter wonderland out there today! It's mild, though, so the roads are all melted. It's the best of both worlds!

My poor flag. I guess I should bring it in for the winter.
I love icicles!
View out one of my LR windows:
See my "when pigs fly" glass figurine from my sister Ann? He's so cute!
View from my DR/office window (side of the house):
And last but certainly not least, my lovely little Japanese maple tree:
I hope you're all enjoying a lazy Saturday. We're staying in and watching movies and football today. Go Jets! :)
