Friday Faves 11.15

cute office accessories


ONE ‘but first, champagne’ print $16 from chloevaux. TWO confetti tumblers – for any type of celebrating, $58 from Grandiflora. THREE wish list notebook (today is a BIG check off my wish list) $10 from Schoolhouse Electric. FOUR simple, pretty calculator from Muji, $28. FIVE a comfy desk chair which doesn’t look half bad either! $499 from Pottery Barn.  SIX cute file folders by Nate Berkus at Target.


I am trying to communicate with you through images today.  Do you know what the above (all put together) says?  I’ll tell you.  It says, “I QUIT MY DAY JOB so I’ll spend my whole weekend drinking champagne before I get down to business on Monday morning running Grandiflora and House of Earnest with everything I’ve got”.

That’s what it says.

In all seriousness, though, I am so so so so happy this morning to tell you guys (finally) that I’ve left my job to pursue my dreams of running my own brand full time. Although my dream is to create a furnishings empire of my own (hey, why not?), I’ll also be so thankful to be able to spend more time here on House of Earnest as well.

I am so thankful for all of the amazing support you all have offered this week with the launch of the line and cannot be more grateful for the amazing group of people who come here everyday seeking home and entertaining inspiration. For that, thank you thank you thank you! 

Now, onto the champagne drinking!
