Mugs...What's Yours?

Yesterday I ran into Pier 1 for a client and I had to talk to myself out of buying this....Okay, I will be straight with you, it was actually this one....
I know, I know, you are questioning my taste, at this moment I am too. I have an excuse though. You know those things you always want to buy even though you don't need one more (probably because you can't stop buying them)? Usually this particular vice of mine falls victim to the coat/tee shirt category....
However, there is something about a mug that I find hard to resist. Especially if it has initials...
Numerous times I have almost bought the mugs above (Anthropologie) and below (West Elm).
I have been able to exert a significant amount of self control over the years but sometimes it is hard. Which leaves me wondering what is it exactly that draws me to mugs? I don't know to be honest.

Other items that randomly yet often tempt me: pencils, paper napkins and coffee table books.

So let's hear it, what do you find yourself constantly wanting to buy over and over for no apparent rhythm or reason?

Trina and Schumacher

The other day I saw the new introductions in the Trina Turk for Schumacher line and I am in love. The punch of color from the indoor/outdoor (yes, that means kid friendly) fabric was just what I needed this time of year. More from the line...
Additional information and prints can be found on Schumacher's site. Thank you Cecily for the pictures and all your help!

Quiet Time

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4: 4-9

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever. Phillipians 4:19-20

"Means we use must be as pure as the ends we seek."

"An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity."

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

I wanted to take a break from interiors on this holiday to honor the late Martin Luther King, Jr. Thank you for the example you set for all of us.

A Vogue Abode

I must admit I was excited when Vogue featured their very own Lauren Santo Domingo's apartment. She is a style icon so I was not surprised to see her casa has a personality all its own...I included this picture for two reasons: 1. the chairs in the back-very cool 2. See the dog bronze by the coffee table? It was an anniversary present to her husband she had artist E. Cunningham make of their dog. Maybe Patrick needs a Harry statue....
That hippo is actually a full bar, you know how I love quirky items...this one takes the cake. I wish it were mine.
Don't you love looking at bookshelves and what they hold?
No need to comment on why I love this shot...
Orrrrrrr this one....
This room is about to become a nursery, I hope at some point pictures of the lucky baby's home will float my way.
