Friday Faves 11.29

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! Join me starting on December 1st (THIS SUNDAY) as I”ll be kicking off the fun!  I don’t I don’t usually post on Sunday’s but we’re not cutting corners on these giveaways… one everyday for 24 days straight.

 

 

 

Make sure to head over to Little White Whale and This Little Street to thank Glora for putting together such an amazing website for the 24 Merry Days and Audrey for organizing this entire event!

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?

FIVE I’m loving silver this fall/winter and this dipped Baggu tote from West Elm would be the perfect gift too, $45.

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!

Friday Faves 10.18

 

ONE pandan woven bins with metallic detailing from Serena & Lily are perfect for the active but stylish home.  $24 when you buy two. TWO foil framed glasses art is nerdy chic at it’s best.  $16 from Honey & Bloom via Cyd’s board on Keep.com THREE one of the best new fall fragrances from Illume is Gilded Amberleaf… ummmm….. and with a beautiful gold and white geo tin, it’s the best smelling decor I can imagine. $18 for the large tin. FOUR these fall leaves linens from design.christonium are made from natural linen and have a seasonal, but not overwhelming print. I love how subtly sweet they are! $25.  FIVE a vintage look with current personalization is what drew me to these bautiful ceramic pieces from Van Ivey Ceramics.  This platter would make an amazing christmas gift for a new family!

 

I hope your week has been amazing!  For me it’s been full of ups and downs.  It’s been a pretty rough work week, but I was also SO happy to be featured on Style Me Pretty for a styled shoot I worked on this fall.  I was very lucky to get in a much needed dinner date with a good friend, and Grandiflora is making great progress!

This weekend, I have to kick it into super high gear.  I have my big project with West Elm that I’ll be working on (and Instagramming about!), I am doing a few fun and easy Halloween projects that I’ll post next week, and I’m preparing for the product photography session to shoot all of the Grandiflora merchandise for the site and lookbook!  In addition, I’m getting in a dinner tonight with the FABULOUS artist who did the invitation suite for the SMP shoot, and a breakfast date tomorrow with a friend who I haven’t seen in far far too long (even though she lives one mile from me).

I can’t wait for tall of the action.  I’ll be bustling about!  What are you doing this gorgeous fall weekend?

 

p.s.  I’m restoring some cane chairs that I found alongside the road!  I’m letting YOU GUYS pick the fabric, so vote!  I’ll reveal the winning pattern next Monday!

ONE the large ash bowl from Crate and Barrel is the perfect mixture of natural and modern. $40.  TWO West Elm salad plates designed by Shanna Murray are one of my favorite things ever.  $8 each. THREE rose gold is like regular gold for autumn and these salad servers would look be perfect for your Thanksgiving table. $49 from West Elm. FOUR MacAusland throws are made from 100% virgin wool on Prince Edward Island.  $95 from Drake General Store.  FIVE this white mosaic mirror has been on my love list for a while.  $595 is a little out of budget, but it’s a beauty, no? SIX I love this little blown glass lantern!  Several of these on a mantle mixed with some pumpkins would be perfect this fall, from hushhush.com.

 

It’s been an amazing week.  This was the first week in over a month that I’ve been at home for five consecutive days. Every night after work, I did absolutely nothing aside from cooking dinner at home each night and catching up on blog work, Grandiflora work, and watching TV (Homeland, anyone?!).   It feels so good to stand still for a while.

A couple of things going on around here:

- I discovered the Drake General Store this week and have been chatting back and forth with the owners, Carlo and Joyce.  They’re awesome enough to offer a discount code for House of Earnest readers!  Just enter HOUSEOFEARNEST at check out for 20% off your purchase!

- Tonight I’m headed out for drinks with Ali, who recently moved to Ohio! I’m excited!

- This weekend, I’m getting elbow deep in a VERY exciting project that I’m working on with West Elm and I cannot wait to share it! Look for sneak peeks on Instagram!

Have a fabulous Friday and weekend, everyone!

ONE sunburst mirror is a little more subtle with rounded edges and an antiqued gold finish.  $69 from Land of Nod. TWO bright dipped mini bowls in fun colors from Leif go well with the jewel tones that are so popular this fall, $24 for a set of 3. THREE mini teaspoon set (also from Leif) is really fun and totally reusable, which is necessary with a $38 price tag.  FOUR this is one of the most fun rugs I’ve seen in a while – It would add a gorgeous splash of color to a living room. $531 for a 5 x 7 from Rugs USA.  FIVE this marble and brass finish coffee table from West Elm is my favorite of their new arrivals.  $499. SIX a very true statement in a simple package. ‘dreams don’t work unless you do’ print from the Note to Self Print Shop.

I’m clearly smitten by all things glam this week on the faves, huh?

I’m in San Francisco this morning at the Evernote Conference learning some pretty amazing new things about the App.  I’m pretty excited to hear Brit from Brit+Co speak today about creativity and technology.

Tomorrow, I go shopping and eating around the city with a good friend and hopefully pack as much in as I can before heading home Sunday.

ONE discovered Koromiko this week and adore the shop.  These candles are an example of one of the offerings that I’m coveting! $34-$38 and created by Angela Hodgekinson in Oklahoma City. TWO I love copper anything at the moment and these ladles are vintage perfection.  I promise I won’t snatch them out from under you, like I did with this colander. THREE white on white queen quilt is just one gorgeous example of the plethora of beautiful things from Gypsya – my new fave shop on Etsy. FOUR Isn’t this bar cart amazing?  And at only $130 from Threshold, it’s a steal! I don’t have room in my house for another bar, but one of you needs it!! FIVE another find from Koromiko, these felt coasters are so unique, but neutral enough for any decor.  Made by Molly McGrath out of San Francisco.

It’s Friday!  I’ve had a jam packed week, starting with three days in the office, then flying to New York for a Better Homes and Gardens workshop yesterday.  Today I’m still in New York meeting with a few amazing brands with whom I have upcoming collaborations with!  You’ll be excited to see who I’m meeting (psst. follow on Instagram for sneak peeks of my day!).

I hope you have a fabulous Friday!
