Friday Faves 1.3

Friday Faves 1.2

ONE a modern hexagon tray is simple, but stunning.  $64 from Waiting on Martha. TWO cheers to good luck in the new year!  Gold horseshoe wine stopper from Furbish Studio for $22. THREE escape the ordinary with the cutest ever candle from Kate Spade.  It’s $40, but how darling would the cup be for pencils after the candle is gone? FOUR I definitely need this pillow cover.  There are loads of other gorgeous gold cushions from Caitlin Wilson as well.  They start at $65. FIVE up your organization this year with gorgeous geo boxes from Kate Spade Saturday. $45 for the set of three.

 

Well guys, it’s been a wonderful last week of 2013 and first week of 2014.  I didn’t take any time off during the holidays, so Matty and I are taking the week next week to head out to Colorado for a bit of relaxation and skiing.  We’ll be out there with a few friends and I am so excited to get some good outdoors time and ski my little heart out.  I think if I can ski at least once a year, I’ll keep some sort of skill up.  Are any of you guys big skiers?  Side story, Matt and I used to live in Vail, Colorado where I learned to ski at age 23.  When we moved out there I’d never skied before and he all but told me that if I didn’t try, he didn’t know about a future with me. A guy serious about what he wants in a girl, huh?  He was kind of joking, but I guess I figured I should learn.  Luckily, I fell in love with skiing and ever since then, I really can’t go a winter without some fun in the powder.

Even though I’ll be traveling next week, blogging is really so therapeutic for me, I’ll be spending some quiet time each day sharing posts with you guys.  I have my 2014 resolutions to share on Monday followed by a bedroom refresh, and (finally!) the reveal of my cane chair.  Of course there are a few other things squeezed in there too, but I can’t wait to start the year off with a bang.

As always, I’ll be sharing photos of my travels, keep up on Instagram!

Friday Faves 12.27

Friday Faves 12.27

ONE a quirky black and white print is the perfect addition to any gallery wall.  ‘Bear of a few words’ print from Bodie and Fou is just $24.30. TWO a wall art sculpture with silver antlers is on my wish list, and at just $14 from Target, it might be making it’s way to my home soon. THREE a great mix of warmth and rustic, this pouf top stool in cream faux mongolian fur from Furbish studio is $250. FOUR wool pillow from Leif is a fun, graphic punch of geo, $68. If you struggle adding pattern to your home, adding it all in B&W is a great start! FIVE a funky vase in all cream is a modern classic (and you won’t be able to see crazy stems if you’re new to arranging). $100 from Kate Spade. SIX Matt got me the book ‘Artisan Cheese Making at Home‘ for Christmas and I can’t wait to dig in and learn about how to create my own curds.

What a holiday week it’s been!  We’ve had parties, gone to parties, played lots of games, and eaten tons of great food.  It’s so evident, especially around the holidays, how blessed we are.  I am so happy to spend the rest of the weekend laying low and hanging around with Matt.  We’ve got a full week next week then head off to Colorado for a week of skiing.  I’m pretty excited to get into the fresh mountain air with loads of snow!

We still have a few fun ideas for your New Years party coming up next week, so come back by and get some last minute inspiration!

Friday Faves 12.20

ONE I have recently (like, yesterday) become obsessed with this giant dot bedding from Nordstrom. Isn’t it just adorable? And at $98 is much less than the dot blanket I posted last week!  I can’t find the shams on the site, but as soon as I do, you’ll be the first to know.  TWO Porcelain pinecone votives from Crate and Barrel are my favorite holiday purchase this year at$2.95 each.  They create such a beautiful warm glow and I think I’ll keep them up all winter long, just changing out the THREE Cedar & Balsam candles from Illume.  They’re like Christmas in a can.  I can’t get enough, $9. FOUR galvanized planters from Terrain are on sale and will be great for late winter/early spring on the porch. FIVE it’s winter, and my skin is dry and flaky (do I sound like a lotion commercial?) well, it’s true.  I saw this scrub and thought it might be the perfect thing to get my skin the the holiday spirit, $44. SIX cute and to the point thank you cards for after the holidays from J. Crew, $26.

Christmas has snuck right up on us!  Although most of the stuff here is probably still up for consideration with two-day shipping, if you want to venture out this weekend and make some gorgeous gifts, I’ve posted three DIY gift ideas that (although kind of girly) are great for people you’re still not quite done shopping for.  Check them out here.

This weekend, I plan on relaxing as much as possible.  I’ve had a very busy week preparing for my Grandiflora trunk show which was Wednesday and going out to dinners with friends.  I hope to watch some Christmas movies and snuggle up by a fire for the large majority of Saturday and Sunday night! How about you?

Friday Faves 12.13

ONE Malena teak appetizer plates and utensils are back in stock!  Get yours while they last!  $44 for a set of 4 appetizer plates and $28 for a set of three (fork, spreader, spoon) appetizer utensils!  Just in time for Christmas! TWO high gloss white carafe from Crate & Barrel is perfect for the holidays.  I plan on using this instead of my coffee maker carafe so that I can brew another pot simultaneously. $35. THREE every time the holidays roll around, I’m reminded how much I need a sideboard or buffet in my dining room.  This light washed Boston Oak sideboard from Wren Living would be perfect… now to find one stateside… FOUR I saw this gold foil cocktail napkins in C. Wonder yesterday and was on the brink of buying them as a Christmas gift to myself.  I resisted, but can’t stop thinking about them! $32 for a set of four. FIVE aren’t cute S&P shakers one of those things that you don’t realize you need until you set the table?  Get ahead with this crazy cute salt & pepper set for $30 from Kate Spade. SIX this darling dot cashmere and wool throw by Paul Smith is quite a splurge, but isn’t it such a find?

 

More metallics and neutrals.  I guess when you have a type, you have a type, right?  I’ve been really trying to narrow my shopping list this week for Christmas and only have a couple of outstanding people for whom to shop. I think I’ll trying to finish everything this weekend so I can focus on wrapping next week.  How are you guys doing on your lists?

In other news, I have some fun meetings today which I’m pretty excited about.  I’m meeting with the owner of a really gorgeous local boutique today to discuss a Grandiflora trunk show that we have scheduled for next Wednesday!  I am really excited to show off my goods! If you’re in the Columbus area – shoot me an email and I’ll give you the details!

Also, if you’d like to gift some goodies from Grandiflora, you can order though next Wednesday for assurance to receive before Christmas, or through Friday if you choose 2 day shipping! Happy Shopping!

Lastly – There are only THREE MORE DAYS to vote on my recipe!  I would love for you to vote to give me a chance to win a trip to Italy!

Friday Faves 12.6

ONE the most darling tea pots I’ve ever seen.  They’d make a great gift for the hard-to-buy-for on your list.  £59 from Emma Bridgewater. More Emma Bridgewater teapots from £59 TWO brushed silver geometric lamp is very simple and still so cool.  $42 from Target. THREE I love this monogramed log tub from Mark and Graham.  I would use it for a ton of ice and some bottled beer and wine.  It would also make a phenomenal gift.  FOUR monogrammed paperweight is so cute.  I just love the ski one! $35 from Mark and Graham.  FIVE these might be the ornaments I’d get if I were doing ornaments this year.  They’re little photo-real ornament scenes from Terrain for $38.

 

I have had a phenomenal week in Hawaii, and although I have been loving it, there’s a bit of snowy christmasy stuff that I’m missing out on back home.  I am excited to start decorating as soon as I’m back, but for the remainder of my trip here in the islands, I’ll be hitting up the Na Pali coast tomorrow and seeing some more sights before I head home tomorrow!

In the meantime,  we have a TON of stuff going on this week -

*please vote for my 12 Days of Marsala recipe over here.  I would be FOREVER grateful since my winning would mean a trip to Italy… Please vote!

*We have a Lowes accent chair giveaway going on right now!  Definitely enter because the chair  is awesome!

Friday Faves 11.29

 

ONE I have loved this chair for a while, it’s a little Scandinavian and a little mid-century modern.  It’s perfect for an accent chair that you can just pull up to the table if you need an extra (pretty) seat. $300 from Lowes. TWO the new ‘notable’ collection from Rifle Paper Co. is totally up my alley.  This tape dispenser is $24, but one of those classics that will grace your desk for years to come. THREE gold confetti paper napkins from Anthro are so perfect! I love that the little scalloped edge! FOUR the black geo design helps this basket look hip and minimal.  $26 from Baba Sok. FIVE the Martini side table from West Elm is one of their classic pieces and will ensure that no seat is without a place to set a drink this holiday. $149. SIX the most darling little thank you cards with foil accents.  $18 for a set of eight. SEVEN get some wheels! This really fun bike from Public Bikes is sure to turn heads and is pretty inexpensive for a good bike.

 

Want to hear some amazing news?  Every single piece in today’s Friday Faves can be won in the 24 Merry Days of giveaways!  You might remember the 24 Merry Days from last year, but basically, 24 bloggers have all gathered together and will each be having a giveaway each day leading up to Christmas.

We’ve got prizes from all of these sponsors plus Land of Nod, Artifact Uprising, Sezane, Leif, and a TON more!

Friday Faves 11.22

ONE wow every single person at your holiday parties this year with amazing hot chocolate on a stick from Ticket Chocolate.  This gingerbread variety is in my pantry and ready for our Friendsgiving on Sunday.  They’re $25 for 5, and you’ll be savoring every drop.  TWO it’s gold, which means I love it, and it’s limited edition from Anthropologie, which means I have to have it.  I’m thinking gold letter mugs would make really cute christmas gifts and at just $10, you can still afford to fill them with some goodies (like the aforementioned hot chocolate!).  Now how’s that for a decedent gift for under $15? THREE a feather banner would look so right paired with a thanksgiving bunting (like this one).  FOUR after my first week of self employment, I’ve never felt more blessed, but think that motivational art like this gold and navy piece from The Everygirl would be perfect for my home office. $30. FIVE I was immediately drawn to these organic sheets with a crochet edge from Zen Bedrooms – they’re perfectly delicate, dainty, and natural.  $148 for a set. SIX cheese markers are my weakness!  I love that this set from Nelle Design isn’t too formal, but still gives people a clue what they’re eating! SEVEN all of the linens at Ten & Co are so cute, but this ski tea towel really hits home for me this time of year when I miss living in Colorado.

See ALL of these things, plus other lovely pieces I’m loving on my Keep page!  (my Christmas list is also on there, hint, hint :)

 

I am loving all of the pre-holiday spirit in the air, aren’t you?  It’s been an amazing week for me… I pushed out a ton of Grandiflora orders (if you haven’t made yours yet, do it soon because things are selling out quickly!), and I helped out a really wonderful team at the Bath and Body Works headquarters with some of their upcoming blog content – what an absolutely fabulous opportunity and equally amazing group of ladies.  I had so much fun.

I’m preparing hardcore for Friendsgiving which we’re hosting on Sunday.  Matt and I are making the Turkey and providing alcohol – all of the other items are coming potluck.  I am so excited to see what people bring and get a taste of what our best friends grew up enjoying at their family Thanksgivings.

I’ll see you all on Monday with photos from the event and some tips on preparing for a potluck meal. Have a great Friday!

Friday Faves 11.15

cute office accessories

 

ONE ‘but first, champagne’ print $16 from chloevaux. TWO confetti tumblers – for any type of celebrating, $58 from Grandiflora. THREE wish list notebook (today is a BIG check off my wish list) $10 from Schoolhouse Electric. FOUR simple, pretty calculator from Muji, $28. FIVE a comfy desk chair which doesn’t look half bad either! $499 from Pottery Barn.  SIX cute file folders by Nate Berkus at Target.

 

I am trying to communicate with you through images today.  Do you know what the above (all put together) says?  I’ll tell you.  It says, “I QUIT MY DAY JOB so I’ll spend my whole weekend drinking champagne before I get down to business on Monday morning running Grandiflora and House of Earnest with everything I’ve got”.

That’s what it says.

In all seriousness, though, I am so so so so happy this morning to tell you guys (finally) that I’ve left my job to pursue my dreams of running my own brand full time. Although my dream is to create a furnishings empire of my own (hey, why not?), I’ll also be so thankful to be able to spend more time here on House of Earnest as well.

I am so thankful for all of the amazing support you all have offered this week with the launch of the line and cannot be more grateful for the amazing group of people who come here everyday seeking home and entertaining inspiration. For that, thank you thank you thank you! 

Now, onto the champagne drinking!

ONE leaf gift tags, place cards, or anything cards.  They’re 12 for 21 tags in a little wooden box from Rowen & Wren. TWO I can’t explain why I love these mini hand-painted wooden houses…I just do.  $30 for the set of three from anamarko. THREE I’ve been eyeing this black and blue geo basket for a while, but it’s not in my local Target store, so I’ll have to buy online, $30.  FOUR I always joke about how I’m going to get some goats and start making cheese on our farm, so this mini cheese kit might be the perfect intro for any budding cheesemaker.  And it’s just $10 from Urban Cheesecraft. FIVE you guys know I love little trinket bowls.  This organic shaped dish combined with a classic monogram is one of my faves (clearly). $12 from Umba.  SIX for the discerning cook and hostess, pure linen textiles with prints by Celina Mancurti are amazing.  I have a few and love them!

If you want to shop all of my favorite finds in one place, you can HERE on Keep!

 

 

It’s Friday!  And it’s November! I know this month will be full of new experiences for me with the opening of Grandiflora, my in-store event at West Elm (won’t you come?), and a ton of blog collaborations that you are going to love.

What kind of month will it be for you?

ONE grey dotted ribbon would be cute for a fall birthday gift of to hang ornaments from the Christmas tree this year.  $4 for 5 yards from inkkit. TWO a pinecone pillow is seasonal without being kitschy.  $20 from Only Pencil.  THREE imagine a sheepskin thrown over this bamboo chair then imagine it in your home.  It’s lovely in light grey.  £135 from Idyll Home FOUR mirrored frames on mirrors can by fancy, but the antiqued finish and gold accents on this octagon mirror really are what draws me in and keeps it casual. $299 from One Kings Lane. FIVE I’m loving silver this fall/winter and this dipped Baggu tote from West Elm would be the perfect gift too, $45. SIX I post so many little trinket and jewelry dishes, but don’t have any (for whatever reason).  This one will soon make a home in my home.  $20 by The Object Enthusiast from Brika.

Do you notice how I mention Christmas a few times in the items descriptions?  It’s two months from today!  You’re either seizing up in fear right now or super excited.

I, however, am super excited.  I love love love the spirit in the air from Halloween straight through until early January and can’t wait for the holidays this year for a few reasons:

  • I am hosting a Holiday DIY with West Elm where we make an amazing holiday project together and I lead you though it!  I am literally bouncing off of my seat, I’m so excited. If you live in the greater Columbus area, you can RSVP for the event here, or if you live  in McLeanWestportBurlingtonTorontoGeorgetown, and King of Prussia your store will also be featuring a class to teach my DIY (which you then get to take home).
  • I am launching my home + decor product line, G R A N D I F L O R A next month.  Get ready to love every piece.
  • I am participating in so many giveaways, guest posts, and collaborative events with other bloggers through the season, you’ll just have wait for all the awesome to come rolling down the pipeline!

So, put on your party pants, because it’s going to be a festive fall around here!

Have a happy happy fall Friday!
