On one hand, I’m glad it’s Friday, but on the other hand, I haven’t gotten nearly enough done this week. I’m finding that this decrease in productivity is the new normal and I need to start adjusting my to-do list accordingly instead of trying to keep cramming things in. It’s funny there is such a stark contrast in the blocks of time that I have throughout the day. While the baby naps, I’m like a maniac trying to get things done, but then while she’s awake or I’m feeding her, there are these big blocks of slowness during which we are sitting quietly together. It’s a lot of stopping and starting in other words. I have a feeling this is how it goes!
Onto pretty things…
The List Week 42
No. 1 SLEEK PEEK – It’s no secret that I have a thing for wall sconces… they seem to make many appearances in my weekly lists! A sleek brass sconce is under $100 and is such a beauty! Even if your home has a more traditional style, this piece could add a modern touch without a style overhaul.
No. 2 PERFECT PERCH – Rattan side tables and ottomans are so versatile and really create a laid back natural feeling. I’ve been eyeing the Pismo Rattan side table for some time… it’s perfect!
No. 3 SIMPLE ABSTRACT –A lot of abstract paintings are a lot to look at and can add a heavy feeling a room. This simple abstract design is funky, but still has a feeling of order, which I like.
No. 4 CHUNKY COZY – Who doesn’t love a good chunky knit pillow?! Crazy people, that’s who. And this one is only $29!
No. 6 KILL PROOF – I have to revert to faux plants in some areas of my house. I notoriously have a black thumb, but love greenery, so these pretty olive tree topiaries are right up my alley.
