Amazing Grace!

Hi! I am so excited that today is F-R-I-D-A-Y!! My weekend is off to a great start. Last night I went to the Design* Sponge book signing at West Elm and met the amazing Grace Bonney! 

Grace is such a doll on her blog and in person...


Bad, bad iPhone photo, but I didn't want to take my Canon and look anymore starstruck than I already was...


While she was signing my book, she and I were talking about the crazy traffic here at Atlanta. She was tweeting about it before she arrived. It was raining last night, so she experienced it at its worst. She gracefully thanked me for coming. I'm so excited that I met her!

I intended to leave after the signing.

But everything in the store was 15% off, sooooo I had to walk around...


I've been a little obsessed with globe pendants lately. They are so simple, but exude so much style. 


If you are an avid reader of my blog, can you tell that I love mirrors? I do- especially circle mirrors. I thought this one was beautiful...


I didn't buy the lighting or the mirror, but I did buy this $5 bowl for my entry table. I would say that is all I bought...


But I would be lying to you.

I bought a few more things that I will share with you later. And...

I actually bought something for one of you...


Stop by next week for all the details!

Happy weekend!

  10. Such a cute pic! Sounds like a fun evening for sure. I really like your new bowl and I am in love with those throws after seeing them in the WE catalog...did they feel soft in person? Hope you are having a good weekend. xo

  11. I can't even tell you what an idiot I would make of myself if I ever met any of my idols...seriously. Like if I ever met Jaime Meares, she would probably think I had serious mental issues! (c: And combine that with shopping at the fabulous WE, sounds like a great night!
