This coffee table because it now sits in our living room. The pop up work/eat table and hidden storage below is genius. It looks pretty nice, too.
This hat because I spied it while browsing a wonderful flea market last weekend while we were in Boston and I just knew it was going to be one of those things I didn’t buy it but continued to think about. Luckily I found the exact same flea market seller online and the exact same hat is available for purchase. So I can continue to think about a knit hat. Great.
This podcast because it’s everything right now. (check the link for fun extras on the website)
This lady (a.k.a. my momma) because she’s on her way here right now and we’re going to have ourselves a nice little ladies weekend.
These boots because admittedly I may have small problem when it comes to brown boots (wha? is six pairs too many?) but a lady needs a pair of black knee highs for the colder months and Sam Edelman rarely disappoints.
What have you got on tap for the weekend? I hope it’s fun.

It’s hard to imagine. But there was a Brooklyn long before bespoke cocktails and beards e’rrywhere. And the website BrooklynPix has proof. The website divides the borough up by ‘hood and has photos from 1890 through 1965. Y’all know I love stuff like this. And I immediately got lost looking for images of my neighborhood, hoping to catch a glimpse of our 1931 building. No such luck, but these three were taken incredibly close. The top one is but a mere block away. The little shop on the right hand corner is now home to the bar where I had my birthday party. Obviously everything’s different but the bones are there.
And this is why I hate new construction.

I have talked about it before (a couple of times) and I’m sure I’ll talk about it again, but I’m always on the hunt for nice big art. I’m drawn to it. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good gallery wall. But less is more when it comes to those and when you’ve got walls to fill sometimes the biggest bang for your buck is to invest in one or two oversized pieces. It’s a more streamlined look and if it’s the right art the effect can be pretty perfect. Of course, that’s the hard part isn’t it? Finding the “right” art. And so begins another search.

I have always had a bit of a weakness for expensive, yummy smelling candles. Such a delectable luxury. And I’ve found my favorite new candle. Meet Good Candle. And wouldn’t you know it? They’re made right here in Brooklyn. And not just that, because who cares Brooklyn is a pretty big place, these beautiful babies are made only a few blocks from our new apartment. They’re hand poured and they smell fantastic. I procured the Rose and next up I want the Campfire. Oh they’re in a cute mason jar and they even have an adorable bike cart they ride around on to make their delivers. Aw. How Brooklyn.

It’s relatively quiet around here these days. Work has been slow. I’m getting over a cold. Really exciting stuff. It’s safe to say the last few gasps of summer have come and gone and we’re slowly getting settled into our new place. Speaking of, a favorite internet pal pointed out my use of the word “our” on a recent instagram I posted of a pot rack in “our” kitchen. It made me smile. It’s funny how quickly it’s become “our” everything. Our new media center that’s due to arrive this Thursday. Our ongoing discussion of where to put the floral chair. Our first overnight guest. Our decision to make Taco Tuesdays a thing around here.
It’s a good word, isn’t it?
