Friday Faves 6.21

ONE the prettiest blue wind chime would be right at home on our back porch. $69 from Dot & Bo. TWO I am so excited for the Poppytalk line for Target!  It launches this weekend and I’ll be there for it! THREE a modern rocking chair from CB2 that doesn’t look the least bit old fashioned and is on sale for $199. FOUR a little pot with clementine lip scrub inside looks almost as pretty as it probably smells! By Sara Happ for $24. FIVE I love that these gorgeous bamboo tumblers are biodegradable.  Don’t they look like ceramic? $24 for a set of four from Terrain. SIX the Joon pillow from Crate & Barrel looks like a mirror print, but is actually embroidery and all for only $17!


Happy Friday!  It’s been a wonderful week here for us.  Matt and I have been working in Hong Kong all week and after a day tomorrow to do some exploring, we’ll be heading back home on Sunday.

Although I’ve been overseas, we haven’t been short of inspiration over here on House of Earnest!  I am still obsessed with the luau party we hosted last week and shared on Wednesday and if you didn’t catch my 5 minute frozen yogurt, check it out too! I love the summery, relaxing vibe of today’s faves and they actually make me a bit homesick to get back to the Ohio summer. Do you ever get homesick while away?

We’ll see you back here on Monday with some peeks of our trip!  Until then, have a fabulous weekend!

ONE I love this little ‘Oui Oui’ bar necklace from Honey & Bloom.  It’s gold plated brass and just $90! TWO isn’t this the coolest ‘magic carpet’ yoga mat?  I think it would make me want to do yoga more just to show it off! $98 from Anthropologie. THREE You just can’t have enough poms in your life and this pompom blanket from West Elms would be perfectly styled on your patio or in your home. And it’s on sale for $19! FOUR If you feel like you need a bit of personality on your patio this summer, look no further.  This embroidered pouf will rescue any bland room for £95. FIVE this gold leaf console is just gorgeous.  It’s a little mid-century glam but is minimal enough that it won’t overtake any other decor. SIX think optimistic thoughts!  Art from satsuma shibuya will help you get there.


It’s Friday the 13th! Are you superstitious at all? I’m not, I’m just hoping the crazies don’t get in the way of all of the hoards of things I have to do this weekend!

I’m gearing up for my event tomorrow morning at West Elm (If you’re in the Columbus area be sure to stop by) and then I’ll be headed home to have the big LUAU party!  If you missed it, I posted first with a mood board for the party, then shared some of the tidbits I bought as well.  I cannot wait to put all of the ideas together and host a big old shindig before I head out of town on Sunday to Hong Kong again.  I will be posting the full party details next week from abroad so keep your eyes peeled!

Although I’m not doing another outfit challenge, I’ll still be instagramming and posting from my travels, so be sure to follow along.


See you on Monday from across the world!

ONE a beautifully sculptural ceramic stool from Jonathan Adler for JCPenny and it’s only $99. TWO bolga baskets from West Elm are the perfect way to add a little color and a lot of texture to a room, $149. THREE brushed brass hex knobs are a great update to the classic round.  From Schoolhouse Electric for $17. FOUR this indigo patterned rug is draw-dropingly gorg.  I love everything about it! $1264 for a 6′ x 9′ from Joss & Main. FIVE my all-time favorite summer scent is the Coconut Milk Mango from Illume.  I have it in candles, hand cream, perfume, and soap.  It just makes me feel like summer all over. SIX cute little foil notebooks will help you stand out from the crowd!  $14 from Biscuit Home.


It’s Friday!!  I have a morning full of meetings then I’m talking off for Chicago!  I am so excited to get away for a weekend with Matty and have fun with friends before three weeks of craziness begins.  I’ll be staying in Chi-town through Tuesday for a conference and then it’s back to Columbus for a Grandiflora Trunk show on Wednesday, a West Elm event (details soon) on Saturday, then off to Hong Kong on Sunday. Whew!  It’s going to be crazy!

I hope you have a fun and relaxing weekend ahead of you!

Friday Faves 5.30

bentwood chair, prosecco, bridal shower ideas, picnic basket, grandiflora home and decor,

ONE This has got to be the prettiest bridal shower idea I’ve seen in a long time… bright colors, lots of gorgeous details and a flamingo cake, what else could a girl want?  The whole party was the brainchild of Brittany from The House That Lars Built.  Pop over here to see all of the amazing photos.  TWO when the weather gets warmer, my drinks get colder.  Since I’m not a huge white wine person, I usually stick to prosecco all summer long… mixed with other things or plain, it’s the perfect summer sparkler.  La Marca mini bottles work perfectly for a little here and there without opening a large one. THREE I don’t know why I like this golden glittery horseshoe, I just do.  It would be a really darling little object d’art for the home. $24 from Cast and Crew. FOUR I love this sculptural and modern side chair and guess what?? It’s only $89… believe it! FIVE the most adorable picnic basket ever. That’s all. $52 from Provisions. SIX wow! You guys really like some handwoven rugs!  All of my geometric pink rugs sold out and I only have one of every other color left. crazy town!  $32 from Grandiflora Home + Decor.


Yay!  It’s Friday!  This week was a busy one! Lots of work and play was crammed into a four day work week.  I’m working feverishly on the Luau party (shopping details to come next week) and getting ready for a few business trips that are coming up as well.

This weekend we are hanging around Columbus, chilling with friends and enjoying our patio! I hope you all have a relaxing weekend in store as well!

ONE ‘lets do cocktails’ print is a perfect little friday reminder and one of my favorite pieces from Evelyn Henson, $20. TWO hand embroidery on black leather, this Lizzie Fortunato clutch is a beauty, $350.  THREE I bought two of these natural woven poufs today for our patio!  They make the perfect little seats or place to prop your feet. $49 each from Target. If you text patio5 to 827438 you can get a $10 for patio/outdoor purchases over $50! yay! FOUR a loved this pom pom trim summer pom pom blanket that Ashley from Sugar and Cloth made!  It is weirdly similar to project I have to show you on monday, but who cares!  There are plenty of pom poms to go around!  FIVE this decorative glass tray is perfect for holding little baubles and offering up a daily reminder.  It would be a wonderful graduation gift for a young lady! $68 from Nordstrom. SIX tortoise tumblers have just a touch of glitter and are on sale! $6 from Pier1 Imports.


Woohoo!  It’s the weekend, guys!  It was a bit of a rough week for me, but the end is in sight and I’m going to take a cue from the print above and have a few cocktails.  We have a happy hour scheduled tonight with friends, a little bit of a splurge dinner tomorrow with other friends, and of course a memorial day party or two to attend.

In between the partying we are going to do a little more work on our patio this weekend to gear up for the big luau that we’ll be having next weekend!  I couldn’t be more excited.

What is on your weekend agenda?
