Numbers! I can think of a *number* of ways to use these vintage number rubber stamps from Anthropologie. Somebody better put them in my Christmas stocking..

When you need to cool your champagne.. This bottle cooler from Porsche has an “original ribbed cylinder from the early air-cooled 911 models.” If you know anything about Porsches.. then you know this is cool. Spendy but cool.

This quilt is so gorgeous, I can’t stop drooling. It’s a baby quilt from b/perrino quilts on Etsy. I found it via the lovely blog Saídos da Concha. The colors and the design..everything is perfect.

Happy weekend!

i love lamp

via Colour Me Happy

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about lighting. Basically because my home doesn’t have enough. Maria Killam, over at Colour Me Happy, says that to have good atmosphere in a room you need to have light coming from the four corners of a room. As I look around my living room, with no overhead lighting, I see that I have two table lamps. I definitely need two more sources of light, and probably not another table lamp.

wallpaper lust

I was searching ebay for a roll of grasscloth wallpaper last night and came across what could be the most amazing wallpaper I may have ever seen. Flocked chinoiserie on grasscloth. Vintage. I haven’t been able to verify, but the listing states is was made by a company called Fashon, from the 1960s.

It’s not cheap though, about $230 dollars, plus it’s in Australia, and the shipping would be about $150 for three rolls.

Those are some heavy wallpaper rolls.

Apparently grasscloth wallpaper is difficult to hang, and for it to be done right, you need a professional to do it. Plus it probably isn’t the best idea with kids around, it’s difficult to clean, and not hard-wearing, particularly if it’s vintage. I guess I’ll have to do without, but I can always dream of how awesome this would look on a wall of my bedroom or dining room. The red flowers will definitely inspire some future projects.
