Friday Faves 11.2

ONE Kate Spade card case prompting, ‘Let’s do Lunch’ to hold all of your namecards from other lunchmates. $20 from Bloomingdales. TWO Orange cinnamon candle where the wick is actually a piece of cinnamon! It’s bound to smell amazing. $30 from You Organic. THREE dip twig pencils are too cute to use… almost. $13 from Inkkit. FOUR mini milk creamers makes me smile and are the perfect touch when having a friend over for coffee.  $8.75 from Room for Emptiness. FIVE Bonjour retro art $17.25 from Edubarba; SIX pretty patterned woodgrain iphone skin, $12 from Field Trip; SEVEN letters and numbers stamps are almost as darling as the sweet box they come in.  $36 from Pink Olive.

I rounded up a few of my favorite things from the week, and did I ever tell you that every Friday morning when I put this post together I sing ‘These are a Few of my Favorite Things’ to myself.  Every Friday.  It didn’t help that I was listening to Christmas music this week as I finished up my Home Depot Style Challenge which involves me decorating my dining room using the latest and greatest from Home Depot.  I am prepared to show you a little sneak peak next week and will be doing a few DIYs that I did for the shoot throughout the next two months!  I’m excited to share, and I hope you’re excited to see it all!

Have a FABULOUS Friday out there, guys.


Friday Faves 10.26

ONE Spicy apple tea lights from Terrain are definitely on their way to my house.  A little hint of spice in each room is perfect for fall. $12 for six; TWO I’ve always wanted an antler chandelier and this one is particularly appealing with its smooth lacquered finish.  It’s modern meets rustic at its finest. $1550 from Shop Horne; THREE Bright walnut botanical print drawing is finished with a scroll style frame made of ash and is just $20 from Ikea; FOUR I fell in love with this bar cart about two months ago and still cannot stop thinking about it.  I think it needs to find a home in my home! Libations bar cart is $599 from Crate and BarrelFIVE I love a cute pitcher that can double as a simple, modern vase. $25 from House and Hold by Design House Stockholm; SIX I love the look of this ‘Man-orah’ made by Frick and Frack Scraps for just $27.


I’ve never been so happy it’s Friday.  I got in from China at around midnight on Monday night and went right into work on Tuesday morning for a full week of crazy.  Matty and I have deliberately put nothing on the schedule for this weekend to recover and I couldn’t be more happy about it.  I’m planning to unpack, do laundry, get caught up on a few projects that have been put off, and possibly relax.

It’s going to be a beautiful weekend in our area and I cannot wait to take advantage.  What’s on your short list for the weekend?


Have a FABULOUS Friday and weekend, guys!


Friday Faves 10.18

ONE Teak spreaders from Muhs Home scoop, spread or stir.  Now, that’s my idea of a multipurpose tool! $18 for four. TWO Sahara pillow has the prettiest golden tassels and I’m loving tassels right now, $166 from Pure HomeTHREE handmade stoneware teapot is a perfect fresh addition to your cool fall nights.  $88 from Gone to Pot Texas FOUR Octagon coffee table from Horchow has interesting lines and a slightly rustic look.  The glass top takes up less visual space and is good for small spaces, $899. FIVE delightfully sweet, but still fun and graphic, these dessert plates from Pure home are perfect for brunch or dessert.  $48 for a set of 6.


This weeks round up is full of pretty little things I found around the interwebs this week, and there is no doubt that I’ll try to DIY some tassels on a pillow soon after seeing the Sahara pillow (I love it, but close to $200 for a pillow is a little nuts).

Today is my last day in the Shanghai area and I head off to Hong Kong tonight to meet up with some friends and have a little ‘Erin’ time.  I just love the girls I was traveling with, but it’s always nice to be on your own as well, exploring a city and going at your own pace. Keep up on Twitter and Instagram and I’ll show you some of the fun I get into on the other side of the world!




Friday Faves 10.12

ONE  vintage southwestern basket is a beautiful option for unique wall art, $42 from ethan ollie; TWO tiny vintage safety matches from Sweden, $4.50 from Just Smashing Darling; THREE Aran knit hot water bottle cover, $37 from patmellor; FOUR boubon barrel cured Noble Maple Syrup from Terrain, $38; FIVE birch paper straws from Garnish, $4 for 50. SIX Salt cellar with cork lid by Vitrified Studio, $35.


You can tell I’m yearning for the cooler weather of home this time of year? I wanted to share these cozy faves with you this week because I’ve been so drawn toward earthy textures and warm colors.  I bought the birch straws yesterday and have plans to use them during the cocktail hour of my fall dinner party.  I can’t wait to get home and really get into the fall spirit – prepare for the party, turn on the heat, start wearing thick socks and have a fire in the fireplace.

While I’m here, however, I still have a ton of great fall posts lined up, so come back next week for some DIYs, a trio of recipes, and some decor inspiration!


….and don’t forget to follow on twitter and instagram for updates from China!









Friday Faves 10.5

ONE These salad servers from The Curiosity Shoppe at Target are a conversation piece and for just $15, the price can’t be beat either! TWO a little pouch for travel, home, make-up, or office, $49 from Moose Design Bags; THREE personalized stationery is anything but traditional in a pretty pop of orange and bold lettering, $25 for a set of 16 from Silhouette Blue; FOUR subtle color dipped candle holders from Wind and Willow home are a perfect gift (for someone else or for yourself!) $16 for a set of four.  FIVE dotted linen napkins are neutral, but really fun for any season, $12 from Anthropologie; SIX ‘skedaddle’ knob in beautiful brass deserves a place on a traditional piece of furniture for the perfect juxtaposition, $14 from Anthropologie.


It’s been a long week, and boy am I happy it’s the weekend.  My weekend is probably going to be just as hectic, but I’m ok with it as long as I get to spend some time outside and with Matty. I plan on doing some apple picking, a little shopping, a lot of crafting and DIYing, and finish the Christmas project I started last weekend.

How will you spend your first weekend in October?


p.s. Matt bought the new Mumford & Sons CD and I just love it.  I’ve been listening to it all morning! Definitely check it out!

I can’t tell you how happy I am that it’s Friday.  I’ll be celebrating a little bit of the holidays this weekend, and hanging out with family who is in town for a wedding.  All around, it will be fun and relaxing.

What’s on your agenda?


Happy Friday and Weekend!


Friday Faves 9.21

ONE gold geometric lamp from Land of Nod, $69; TWO It’s no secret that I like things ‘dipped’.  Modernist dipped chair £395 from Folklore; THREE a beautiful embroidered pillow captures the colors of this fall, and mixes browns and blacks, just like I talked about last week. $110 from Dwell Studio; FOUR a sculptural and elegant decanter is definitely an must for a classic home bar, $155 from Empiric Studio; FIVE if you either don’t have the time or the strength to schlep a bunch of fall gourds home for your decor, Terrain will deliver you a crate of 7-9 assorted pumpkins for $68. SIX clean, modern lines and a naturally rustic finish are what makes this serving bowl from Julia Paul Pottery so special, $105.


Today is the first day of Autumn and I’m celebrating with a very fall feeling round up of my favorite things from the week.  I really just love the crated pumpkin idea, and goodness knows all of these colors are right down my alley for my own home decor.

This weekend, I’m excited to jump right into some of my own fall decorating (scheduled to share next Monday) and spend some time with Matty.  What’s on your agenda?


Have a FABULOUS fall Friday and Weekend!


Friday Faves 9.14

ONE Pendleton 5th Avenue throw is made from durable wool and is ideal for a night around a bonfire ,$138 TWO Terrain’s rustic copper fire pit is beautiful, but pricey at $1998.  If you’re in the market for one this fall, here is a similar version with a much sharper price tag. THREE I squealed when I saw these precious golden herb napkin rings.  The rosemary is shown (my favorite), but they also come in a variety of other gilded greens. $60 for a set of four at Rain Collection. FOUR this etsy shop has such a beautiful collection of return address stamps.  Get ready in advance for Christmas Card season! FIVE the design, the colors, and the texture are all perfection in this surprising find from Target, $29. SIX this nightstand (or side table) reminds me of a campaign camp chest from the ’20′s.  This one isn’t antique, but that means it can be yours! The Overland Cross Table is just $395 from Serena and Lily.


It’s such a beautiful Friday morning and I cannot wait to get into the weekend.  Both Matty and I are home (for the first weekend in a while!) and we’re going to spend some time with friends, do some projects around the house, and get everything ready for cooler months ahead.

Things were busy around House of Earnest this week as well!

I guest posted for Cassandra while she is sailing the high seas

Have a FULLFILLING Friday and weekend out there, guys!


Friday Faves 9.7

ONE a delicate little bowl for your earrings $55 by Tiffin StudioTWO keep your books tamed, but let your wild side out.  Pig bookends are $30 from CB2; THREE these ‘cheers’ coasters would make the sweetest gift. $32 for a set of four from Linea Carta; FOUR this striped teacup giftset could be used for so much more (I’m thinking a unique vase) $39 from Rain Collection; FIVE a message in a bottle is super cute, but isn’t available outside of Japan.  and for $43, you could probably put this clever idea on your DIY list. SIX I would have no problem finding room in my house for this indigo dip dye rug from West Elm $129 for the 3×5 – perfect for a cool new entryway.


This week just flew by. Obviously it was a short one for a lot of us, but aside from that, there was the perfect amount going on.  If you follow me on twitter, you might have seen that I just started working out again after 3 years off the wagon and we’re still without internet or cable.  To be honest, aside from it taking twice as long to do a blog post, I don’t mind it.  I’m not a huge TV person anyway, so not much in lost in my eyes.

This weekend, I’m excited to have coffee tomorrow with a local designer and blogger, Allie, finish reading my current book, and finish tackling this bad boy after about a year hiatus.

Anything fun on your agenda?


Friday Faves 8.31

ONE A thermos for hot chocolate – $15 from Bewildered Amusement, TWO football tailgating just isn’t the same without hot grilled anything.  This small charcoal grill is perfect for a party on the go – $79 by Bodum; THREE perching perfect doesn’t have to be a style compromise on game day – $25 from Bluejays Workshop; FOUR throw out all of your old beer koozies and buy this cute, and simply stylish knit version… plus, drinking from a mason jar is much cooler than a red solo cup! $8 from Knotty Monkey; FIVE show your school spirit in vintage fashion.  B’more Unique sells vintage pennants starting at $30; SIX  don’t forget a blanket.  Even if it’s too hot to cover up, folding it beneath your tush on hard stadium seating is a wonderful use.  $30 from jacklom3.


Living in the midwest, the end of summer has always signified the beginning of football season, and I really cannot wait.  I love spending saturday mornings getting geared up, drinking bloody mary’s and meeting up with friends for the big game.  Tomorrow we’re heading to a friend’s house for a big bash to kick off the college football season in our town and I’ll be there with bells on (and maybe some of the above fare).

Aside from the impending game, I’ve been struggling this week without any internet.  Blog posts have been going up at a coffee shop or the office, and I hope you guys haven’t been too thrown off!  I hope to get it back today (yay), and will resume regular early morning posting.

Around here this week:

Have a great long weekend out there, guys!
