I love Vintage Junky because she seems to decorate a lot like I do. Vintage pieces mixed with not so vintage, a little whimsy here and there. I have just been reading her a short time, but already have plenty of ideas stashed away in my Rolodex of a brain from her. Thank you Vintage Junky, you jumped started my creative battery again. It was running low.
OK now, some of the things on my party list are really expensive but maybe one day. A girl can dream can't she?
Yet, some of the things on my party list are reasonable and would be great presents for me. Just in case any husbands, moms, dads, mother in laws, ga-ga in laws, brothers, brother in laws, sister in laws, future sister in laws or best friends are reading this.
Piece number one:
This piece is huge. It may be too big for my house, but I heart it so. It isn't rustic or vintagy and that is what I like about it. I think it would look lovely filled with milk glass, mercury glass and carnival glass. With silver frames of family and friends sprinkled throughout.
I have been obsessed with the below two apothecary jars for awhile. They are huge and original and from France.
And they cost $12,500.00 for both. Could you imagine me having some glass that cost that much when I have Tess and Bram as children. That would be very poor decision making.
Trust me, I have been on a hunt forever to find something similar that cost ohhhhhh maybe $20 a set. I want them for my bathroom.
New bedding. I want the below bedding from Anthropologie. I want it for Spring 2010. I also want to wallpaper my bedroom. This will happen at some point in 2010. Mark my word, I am just going to have to be quite sneaky about it and do the wallpapering when Hubs is out of town. Can you wallpaper in a weekend? Is there a way to practice wallpapering? Need deets.
Anyhoo, this bedding is so bright and cheerful. What I love in bedding, it just makes me happy.
I must have this mushroom plate from Anthropologie to add to my plate collection.
I also want the three candlesticks below. I am buying a vintage piece that is VERY shabby, and these three will look perfect lined up on top. The simplicity of the sticks with the rusticness/shabiness of the piece I am purchasing will be perfection.
I also want this from etsy. Just love anything pears right now. Weird. I go through fruit phases.
Last but not least, I REALLY want this, this, and this all to put on my couch. I know they are kind of hokey, but I have seen them in person and they are so fun and detailed.
Fort Worth (best city in the whole wide world. Maybe universe) where I was born and raised and Austin where Hubby was born and raised. And of course being that we are both 8th generation Texans, we HAVE to have the Texas pillow. Seriously, I have wanted these pillows since we got married. Love them.
Upon closing, I would like to remind my mother and father that if it wasn't for me, they would have 0 grandkids. AND I would like to remind Iddy, that if it wasn't for me, she would not have a granddaughter.
That was fun. And if you want to join in the party, go to Vintage Junky and linky loo on!!
