Just a note:

I'm getting ready to head to Indiana to see my brother before he heads overseas. I'll be gone until late July 1st. Hopefully, I will be on posting overload after that.

Have a great rest of the week!

Skulls & Crossbones

Next to colorful things, I like anything that's a little off kilter. Skulls, crossbones, that sort of thing.

Skull & Bones Dinnerware

Silver Skull Placemats

Silver Skull Coasters

Beaded Skull Placemat

Yorick Votive Holders

Skull Napkin Rings

Peacock Dinner Accessories

Tracy Porter "Artesian" Peacock Salt & Pepper Shakers

Peacock Butterfly Napkin Rings

I love peacocks. Next to the flamingo, they're probably my second favorite bird/animal. So I like my animals colorful too.

Cameo Plaques

Horchow Cameo Plaques

I love the idea of a pair of cameo plaque in a shabby chic bedroom.

Jewelry Stands.

I love jewelry. I have a ton of it that I don't wear (some still with their clearance tags on them; I'm that cheap.) but I can't part with it. I also feel sad that I don't display it. So, my solution is to buy a stand for some of the colorful fun stuff so I can get it in my sight more often and maybe wear it. Here are a few options:

Twig Jewelry Stand

Manzanita Jewelry Tree

Little Birch Jewelry Stand

Sakura Earring Stand

AtHome Lamps

After my AtHome America party, I decided, on a whim, to order a lamp. I ordered this one:

Cypress Stylelight

It's greener than in the picture. And it's huge.

I also liked this one:

Crystal Moon Stylelight Moulin Rouge

That one you can also order with a black shade. I love the vivid red color of the shade, though. (I have one like this from Target in my bedroom, but much smaller.)

Photo Frames

I like pictures. I like displaying pictures and looking at other people's pictures. So I, in turn, like picture frames.

Sausalito Frame

Tangerine Lacquer Frames

Purple Nouveau Jeweled Frames

Fleur Frame

Reclaimed Tin Frames

Reclaimed Wood Frames

Patchwork Wood Frame

4 X 6 Burl Wood Frames

Agate Photo Frames

Candles & Votive Holders

Votives for Jackson Pollock

1960s Vintage Lawn Chairs
(These make me laugh because I constantly take pictures of my cell phone sitting in tiny chairs, like these.)


Lotus Tealights

Fleur Tealight

Window Coverings.

Curtains are the bane of my existence. I cannot pick anything out that I think looks right or appropriate for a room. BUT, that doesn't mean I have stopped looking at them.

Icon Panel

Brussels Panel

Soleil Panels

Gala Panels

Metro Panel

Canvas Panel


"Polka Dot" Dinnerware

Anthropology Luncheon Plates

Celebrity Plates

Fuschia Avalon Dinnerware

Mango Avalon Dinnerware

Fun Child Bedding

Okay, not necessarily "children" bedding, but I love fun rooms for kids. Not necessarily the "primary colors only" kind, but the kind that screams "I have a personality at the age of 18 months!" After awhile, the frilly pink-or-blue seems bland for a toddler that is constantly on the go making funny faces. (But this is just me, of course.)

Denim Bed Linens (Very similar to Pottery Barn's Star Bedding, which is on sale!)

Geography Pillows

Dog Pillows

"Dottie" Quilted Bedding

See, really fun!

Beachy Decor

Porcelain Coral


Darn Horchow, making me want to spend money.

Another Rug Day

While contemplating replacing our wall-to-wall berber carpet with laminate wood, I realized I would need rugs. So it's my current obsession.

Martha Stewart "Tendrils" Rug

"Damask Print" Rug

"Soho Vines" Rug

"Wymberly" Rug

Martha Stewart "Faux Bois" Rug

They're not all that colorful, but they're certainly fun.
