this is my new pottery barn.
 it's a bit more modern than pb
but i did have fun shopping here today.
a new friend told me about habitat.
there are a few of them around the city
and lucky for me..
there's one within walking distance.
they have a great kitchen section
and all kinds of fun accent pieces
for your home.
i bought a few pillows, throws and 
some glassware.
i think i'll be spending some time
(and money) here.
and lucky for me it's not too pricey.

i told my french friend beatrice
that i'm in the market for an 
antique desk and 
dining room table and chairs.
obviously i'll be scouring the flea markets
but beatrice told me to check out 
french ebay.
spent way too much time on french ebay today.

new pillows and throws.
makes me happy.

my bedside table.
it's constantly changing. 
right now i'm reading 
david McCulloughs 
the greater journey.
i love history.
and i'm loving reading about
the americans that made their way 
to paris in the early 1800's to learn
about art and medicine and literature.

the kids started their autumn break.
we've never had an autumn break before!
so we're headed to italy!


  1. love the pillows & throw you picked!

  2. That fireplace mantel is killing me!!!!!!

  3. gretchen's right...WOW!
    what an amazing place to shop.
    enjoy every minute of that italy no less!!!:)
    have a happy day pam

  4. Buon giorno! Love your new pillows and throw!! I started reading A Greater Journey a few months ago, but never finished since it was on loan from the library and my time was limited. I really enjoyed it though so must finish. Enjoy Italy!! xoxo
