Did I mention yesterday how much I love Valentine’s Day? I’ve been eyeing lots of cute little Valentine’s Day-inspired gifts lately, from trinkets for your girlfriends to a few little gifts I wouldn’t mind myself (yes, I mean you, you darling little gem locket!). Who’s your Valentine’s Day gift list? Untitled-1

I spent my day off tackling a list of home projects: first up was cleaning out our office closet where I was elbow-deep in holiday garlands and craft supplies. While there is nothing as satisfying as knowing exactly where every jar of glitter you own is stored, once the closet door closes there’s a little less excitement about that type of sprucing. Luckily when my Mom visited this weekend to accompany us to our wedding tasting, she brought a big bag of belated birthday presents and in it, a new grosgrain applique pillow from Target — just the kind of visible sprucing I was looking for!

In the age of online shopping, sometimes I just get a little burst of joy when a really great catalog pops up in my mailbox. Which is exactly the case when the Spring Boden catalog arrived this week. To me, it feels so bright and fresh and playful — and the styling is spot on. In fact I was almost as excited about that vintage bar cart in the background of one of the models as I was about the adorable patterned pencil skirts! img067img06859602395040371485_xiSTM1jQ_c

I spruced up our bedroom recently with a few new accessories that were under the Christmas tree! We have slanted ceilings in our bedroom which can make decorating a challenge — but my parents gifted me the perfect little gold starburst mirror that fits perfectly in the in the spot above our bed that I’ve been trying to fill for a year and a half.  And I added a new Dwell Studio citrine zebra pillow that has been on my wishlist forever; it’s the perfect pop of color against the poppyseed walls!

Here’s my question: would it be unreasonable to buy a lobster door knocker and store it away in my closet until I someday hypothetically own my very own front door? I think my supportive blog readers will agree that no, that is in no way unreasonable (and that’s why I keep you guys around, to justify buying lobster door knockers).
