Blue Funk


I'm lacking in the creativity department today, hence the awful post title.  I think its all the rain we are getting.  I had to post this picture though, I am in love with it all.

The a mix of old & new and the bright & neutral colors are done perfectly. A lovely layered look, just how I like it.

what is it about a good tablescape that is so F'ing enticing? This one is delish- especially that mirror!
I think I like leaning mirrors better than hanging mirrors. Or maybe I'm just afraid of nailing stuff into my walls!

The title works for me...we have quite a few of those days in Chicago! LOVE the color of that mirror! Marija

I'm lacking in the sleep department... deprived actually. Want a 2 yr old? He's cute.
Anyways, had to stop by because I loves this! I'll take one of everything and a cottage to put it in... please. Just make sure you put aside a weekend to come visit. See what sleep deprivation does?! xo Erica

This is great! That is the exact look I would like to create in my home. It's so hard to get right, though.

Yeah, this rain sucks! Not looking forward to driving home in it.

I love how the mirror coordinates with the book (or vice versa!).

I have heard about all of that rain you've been getting. I don't mind it when you are lacking in the creativity department if you still pump pictures out that look like this. I am a fan of that little box.
