A Smell of a Rose

Posted on: Friday, August 28, 2015


It's Friday. 
So stop. 
Take a Break. 
And stare long enough at a painting until it begins makes sense.


Oh, and don't forget to wear something wonderful.

Preppin' for School Again

He said, "Above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you, because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it."
-Roald Dahl

A new school year is sneaking up on summer--and though late nights and lazy days begrudgingly fade into homework and schedules, there is some sort of exhilaration in getting back to school. The new outfits, new school supplies, hoping for the right teachers and best classmates, so much anticipation and wonder surrounds that first day. And in this time, whether you are heading back to school or remembering those days, it's best to go into it believing in magic, and absorbing what's ahead with glittering eyes and willingness to learn.

And if the year doesn't shape up the way you hoped, there's always day dreaming to get you through. Happy Friday!

3: "Oh, give me a home?" This buffalo's roam called to us, and now he's looking for a new range, er, table.





4: All green with envy from your friends' blankets? The tides have turned--though these blankets are green, you'll be feeling much better wrapped up in one of these wool wonders.



5: Shiny, stoic, vintage--this myrtle-wood lamp is just gorgeous. You'll be leaving the light on a little bit longer.



6: As vibrant as can be, and in such good condition, we couldn't help but grab multiples of these beautiful rugs! Each pattern a little different, but equally unique.
