For Like Ever

Today is our wedding anniversary, the anniversary of the day we promised forever no matter what. So in honor of that I thought I would post some things that I have loved...you guessed it, forever. As a decorator and well, really just an average human, I fall in love with new things all the time. Some though don't just pass as a phase, some stick for years. For example, this poster...I have loved this for years, well to be exact since the day this issue was delivered in my mailbox, September 2006 I believe...
Other items that have held my attention through the years (I know most of these have been on here before, what can I say?).....
Above Niermann Weeks Mansard Lantern, below CB2 Peekaboo Clear Console

While we are looking through things, I know I am not original on this one, but I LOVE the Philippe Starck Louis Ghost Chair.

A favorite piece from a favorite company...
Another old favorite from Market, not even sure if this is still available...I picture several of these around an old, worn farm table....
Just a few of many, many fabrics I LOVE. I generally don't post fabric because they don't look half as good as they do in person...

These below may be the first pattern I ever really really loved. Just trust me, in person they are very cool, oh and very pricey. It would take me DAYS to post all the fabrics I have loved for years.

When I step off the elevator at Market, Bobo is always the first showroom I see. Many of their pieces I have loved forever, this is just one....I know I am going against the majority here, but I LOVE this piece, well really it is two pieces put together. Most people think I am crazy (Hubby included), but it is just one of those random things that has always drawn me in. Once again, so much better in person.
A Swedish clock, I will have one somewhere in my house one day. These here.
Some oldies that are longer available that still call my name from beyond the grave, haha.

I could go on for a while but I will stop for now. This year instead of presents we are putting money towards a trip we are planning. Of course, last year's gift to each other is in the picture below and how do you top Harry?*This is only picture we have of all 3 of us, it is not a good picture of anyone (Harry included), how sad is that?

**One last thing, while this is not our "song", it always makes me think of spending forever with the one I love. While I like the video, I wish I knew how to just post the audio so there was nothing to distract from the words.

Thanks for sharing this day with me!

Happy anniversary!! Hope you have an absolutely wonderful day!

Btw, this post got me thinking about fabric.. I'd love a post sometime dedicated to your fave fabrics. :)

my favorite and my best said...

happy anniversary!!
although i have to disagree with you a little bit. i honestly felt that the video enhanced the meaning and words of the song.
i thought the song on it's own while sweet and simple and pretty would be kind of forgettable. but the video just made it stand out and become a bit more memorable to me. that's just me though. either way i enjoyed it so, thank you!

Funny you should mention Domino, I had a Domino "party" last night sitting on the floor with all my issues around me going through them all wishing that one more copy would show up in my mailbox, I miss it!

Thank you all for your sweet comments, you are the best!

Our song, the one we danced to at our wedding was "I'm Coming Home" by Robert Earl Keen. Our good friend sang it for us. Since we did the distance thing for years it is a special song.

What a lovely post! I love your family photo, and contrary to what you say, I think you all look pretty cute (you just need to photoshop out that red in your hubby's eye, and you got a gorgeous family photo ;-)). But, seriously, happy anniversary, I hope you have a wonderful day and that you celebrate the "for-like-ever"ness of it all!
