Running Shopping List

I was cleaning out my bag today and I found my ongoing shopping list.  You know what I'm talking about, that list of things to keep you eye out for.  Mine is constantly growing and changing as things get added and crossed off.

Currently here are few items on my list:


a footstool. Preferably one like this, I am in love with those claw & ball feet. I'm dying to get my hands on one like this to recover for my family room.

fabric- it's always at the top of my list

Lion drawer pulls- I have no real specific use for them right now, but the fiance has this love of lions and I think it would fun to incorporate lions like these into a piece of furniture.

Bookcase with storage.  The one above is my current obsession- I can't get it out of my head!  I'm dying to get the fiances books out of the boxes and up on shelves in his office.  The cabinets below would provide much needed storage for office supplies and other items we want kept hidden away.

Why oh why is it so hard to find a piece like this without spending an arm and a leg??  I'm willing to re-paint or put work into it, anyone know where I can get one in the Boston area?

Wood frames with fun details.  Old frames are so much more interesting, the detail in them is amazing.  They can be left alone or make great projects for repainting.


So tell me, what's on your running shopping list??

Love the lion drawer pulls! You might check out etsy for footstools...I've seen quite a few on there. High Street Market has great ones every once in a while, and they usually have really cute fabrics.

If you find a great source for foot stools let me know. Would love to find something I could recover myself.

This is fun! Love your list. I'm with you on the footstool, I need a pair that look exactly that one to upholster with my ebay la fiorentina fabric. I'm also on the hunt for a campaign dresser, and some pretty brassy bambooey furniture!

I am trying to see how long I can go without buying something...I need to save my money, but the Ipad is definitely on my list!

LOVE that footstool, just gorgeous! I'm constantly on the search for a similar footstool on Craigslist, but haven't had any luck (thus far, anyway!).

Averill said...

Love your list. My shopping list always seems to change but constants definitely include a pair of gorgeous brass lamps for Dave's office and a stunning console table for the entryway.

Enjoy the long weekend -- off tomorrow for a vacay!

my favorite and my best said...

all of yours plus a million more..

Marija said...

Love your lion pulls. I'm desperate for a little foot stool to set in front of a mirror so it can't be too tall. Something similar to what you've shown. Keep me in mind if you find one...I love your style!

Haven and Home said...

I love lions and when I say these it reminded me that I need to restart my search for my lion door knocker. I have been on the hunt forever!

sarah, flourish design + style said...

Too much! I've seen lion pulls at home depot, very reasonable. xx

Deliciously Organized said...

I'm not sure, which is a bad thing! That means I'm just buying to buy...ha. Might need to make a list tonight!

Ariane: Audrey Onassis said...

I adore that footstool. What a fun list!

Laurie Jones said...

I too love the lions! My shopping list is too long to list since we just moved into our new home and if the list wasn't long enough I also use my iphone to take photos of things I see while I'm out and about to add more to the list!!

I love the idea of having a running shopping list. ON my list are espadrilles and summer frocks - amongst mirrored bedside dressers...and fun wallpaper.
