The Little Things...

Dear Deweese,

It makes me so happy to hear that you had such a good time. As soon as I put my feet in that HOT Florida ocean water I just knew you'd like it. And 10 minutes later when I had to get out of the water because I was feeling too hot as if I was in a hot tub... I knew you'd love it!

So lately Nick and I have been moving at a snail's pace when it comes to the apartment.  We ordered a rug for under our "Eames" chair and had to return it because it was the wrong color.  Grr.  Also, I've been looking and looking for a round coffee table and having just no luck! This week, I'm leaning toward this one.  Yum, but a little pricey and wood, and I was looking for a color/pattern. Hmm.

So I think I'll focus on the little accomplishments. For example, I switched out the knobs on our china cabinet. You might remember that we had searched high and low for an antique cabinet and eventually found one from a big box store that worked for us.  But the knobs were so.... furniture store. I wanted to change it up but keep it elegant and not tooooo folksy/craftsy (since I have a tendency to go there).  No surprise, I found them at Anthropologie... aka the mecca of unique knobs. Check it out:

What do you think? I love how switching up the knobs and hardware make a piece of furniture completely one of a kind. Oh yeah, and we also got this little ugly dog from Urban Outfitters...and named him Lou. Just for a little weirdness and because we really miss the French bulldog that was our next door neighbor in our old apartment building...check him out:

So bad. So awesome.

Love ya,


  1. i totally have the same ugly dog piggy bank! we named him bruiser :)

  2. Cassandra: that is too funny that you have the same one... he is totally a bruiser! Lori: thanks! we are loving Lou in our foyer... he welcomes us home.

  3. Cath - my mother collected little ugly Lous when I was little! I have several of my own and giggle every time I look at them.
