ONE a pretty amazing site with a plethora of vintage goodies, Hunter’s Alley, is home to this gold beveled mirror that is just my style – classic and a bit modern. $275. TWO how amazing are these agate cabinet pulls from West Elm? I don’t even have words for them. At $49 each, they’re a bit pricey, but boy are the gorgeous.  THREE this whole light and airy white collection from target is toying with my emotions.  I want ever piece, but especially these side tables with leather drawer handles. And it’s just $63. I almost can’t resist. FOUR a pretty scalloped planter by Susan Simonini has me thinking ahead to spring. FIVE graphic french windows make a cute little illustration on this ceramic coaster from Wandersketch, $12. SIX during the ‘month of love’ this is a cute doormat to remind all who enter just what a pair you are, $45.  Aside from the obvious association with the holiday, it’s a really darling piece all year and the amazing team at Lulu & Georgia would like to offer you a discount this weekend on their entire site with the code HEARTDAY20


Happy Valentine’s Day! Whew, it’s been a busy week! I feel like my heads going to spin off there is so much going on, but I kind of like it that way!  I am preparing for my first ever tradeshow in just three short weeks where I’ll showcase my Grandiflora product to buyers from all over and hopefully they’ll all love enough to sell it in their shops.  I’m both nervous and excited! Have any of you done a trade show before? Tips?

I’ll be preparing most of the day today for our Spanish Tapas party tomorrow and I am excited to heat things up with lots of friends and fun since we’re still dealing with utter cold temps and I’ve resisted going out to dinners.

What is on your weekend agenda?

ONE hand lettered gold XO print would be a perfect gift for her, $28 from Rach Illustrates. TWO carved wood shape salt and pepper shakers are interesting, but classy from Crate & Barrel for $25. THREE I’ve always wanted a moroccan wedding blanket, and I like the darker colors woven through this one from Urban Outfitters, but it’s still a little pricey at $799. FOUR If you’re having a hard time adding a textured tribal look to your home, this striped hemp pillow is a nice place to start. $65 from Nomadic Trading Company. FIVE brass votives from Furbish are the kind of thing you can use or your table or move to your bookshelves or style in a hallway vignette.  They’re totally versatile and quite pretty. $26.50 each. SIX I love this gold triangle wrapping paper.  It’s a great option to have on hand for that ‘pop-up’ party you need to attend. $7 for two sheets.


It’s really been a great week here in our corner of the world.  I got my husband back after his man-cation, I had a wonderful dinner with a friend who had moved away, and I’ve been doing some really fun styling work for a local company’s website (I’ll share soon!).

I have a few meetings this weekend and then I’ll be working on my master bedroom closet (details to come)! My sister is coming up from Nashville, so I’m excited to see her in between my work.

What’s on your agenda this weekend?


p.s. I sincerely apologize for the confusion with my post yesterday.  I put up a giveaway, but then had some issues with it, so I had to pull it back down to revamp.  It will come back soon!

ONE ‘fortune favors the brave’ print is just the perfect reminder to take that next step.  Three sizes available starting from $18 from FieldTrip. TWO I love natural vachetta leather and this little clutch looks so luxe, but minimal.  It gets more and more beautiful with age and wear (think LV handles!).  The maker, Minimaliste has lots of great shapes, this one is $150. THREE vintage Eames rocker sit’s at the top of my wish list and one day I’ll make the splurge.  $465 from Cast & Crew. FOUR vintage kilim Turkish rug is so vibrant and would add a gorgeous splash of color to an otherwise neutral room.  This one is a large 6.5′ x 10′, but the shop have several sizes available. FIVE navy blue mini triangle pillow would be the perfect addition to my sofa in an effort to bring some navy into the living room. $48 from ShapesColors. SIX my skin is freaking out over here. I need to buy some serious lotion to stave off the winter dryness!  This chamomile and grapefruit body butter from Beridan Naturals is all natural, super thick, and calling my name, $32.


Well, I’m back from Utah and getting back into the swing of things over here.  It’s been super cold all week, so we’ve been hunkering down, catching up on our DVR, cooking dinner at home, and drinking lots of wine.  I just started watching ‘Girls’ and can’t decide if I like it or hate it… any watchers?  Of course, the highlight of my Sunday nights is Downton Abbey.  I just love it.

Matty is going away for a boys ski trip this weekend, so I’ll be catching up on some of the work I missed while at Alt, watching girly movies, and possibly treating myself to a manicure.

What are your plans this weekend?


p.s.  Big news – I’ll be having a virtual garage sale next week starting on MONDAY!  Follow @erinsclosetcleanout on instagram for all the details!  I’ll be auctioning everything from bags, shoes, accessories, and clothes to some furniture and home accessories!  I’ll be sharing complete rules on Facebook, so be sure to follow there too!

ONE cool, abstract chevron makes a cool pattern for this Addison duvet cover from Crane & Canopy, $99 for a Queen.  TWO I love  marble anyway, but mixed with wood, it sure makes a gorgeous cutting board!  $48 for the small cutting board and $78 for the large from Terrain. THREE the new Steven Alan for West Elm stuff is amazing!  This papier mache table tops my list, $299. FOUR the Viv wall hook won’t leave you hanging, a beautiful brushed gold geometric hook with ample space for everything from coats to handbags to umbrellas. $38 for a set of two from Grandiflora. FIVE I was miserably sick all week last week and this menthol bath soak looks like the perfect way to rehab.  Also, I can’t get over the art deco tin of the cough suppressant rub from J.R. Watkins and wish I’d found it a week sooner! $10 each. SIX bring some green into the winter months with this monogramed emerald green leather tote.  $199 from Mark and Graham. SEVEN cute grey geometric  letterpress coasters just make me smile! $15 for a set of 10 from Grey Line Letterpress.

Aren’t these grays and greens so soothing for the winter weather months?  I suppose if I can’t get my sunroom, I can just include some greens into my home until spring pops along.  Speaking of green, last night at Alt Summit, there was a giant party and the entire theme was green!  It’s one of my favorite colors, so I was happy to be surrounded by it. Check out my green dress choice and see other highlights from the conference on Instagram!

I’m heading out today for another full day of learning at Alt and then a series of mini parties tonight before I head home Saturday.

Have a wonderful weekend you all!

ONE it doesn’t have to be June to enjoy a little color from peonies.  This cute faux  flower arrangement with brighten up any room this winter, and the gold vase is right on trend. $20 from Target. TWO I’m excited to show you what I did with my white and gold longhorn skull, but if you’re wanting something for your walls, this resin gold deer head is a great idea! $85 from Faux Taxidermy Loft. THREE a tufted gold and cream stool is the epitome of feminine and is such a great price at just $99 from Threshold. FOUR cold, dry winter lips be gone!  This cute lip balm trio from Herbivore Botanical contains Rose, Mint, and Blood Orange all for just $28. FIVE Watercolor art from Evelyn Henson is the perfect pretty piece to make you smile.  This one says, “Happy Girls are the Prettiest Girls” and looks like a gorgeous perfume bottle and is just $19.  SIX a little book with tons of tips from interior designer India Mahdavi, Home Chic,  is on my wish list.


How fun and girly are the faves today?  I’m not usually a big pink person, but the mixture of blush and gold is just something that I can’t resist.

This weekend, I’m going to be preparing for Alt Design Summit which is next week. I’ll be doing a little shopping and thinking about a strategy for what brands and bloggers I want to connect with to ensure I don’t miss anyone!   I’m so excited to see some friends and get all dressed up… something that doesn’t happen too often when working from home!
