Alexandra Ferguson

I don't usually particularly LOVE the whole "words on pillows" motif, but I believe Alexandra Ferguson's pieces are my exception to that rule. I think pillows like these could be fantastic accents in any living room with bold colors. I think the trick is to just not use too many of them. If you walk into a room and there are one or two of these "phrase pillows" scattered on a wing chair or sofa, you actually notice them, and then can appreciate them more in their environment. When I see too many in a room I think Britney Spears and her infamous phrase t-shirts. Too much? I also like how Alexander calls her business "A sassy little pillow company". English Muffin likes too! Happy Friday, guys!

Marcel the Shell

This needs WAY more hits than it currently has. She's just wonderful.

Sperm Whale Carvings

I'm assuming it's a strange thing to be REALLY into... but I LOVE these! When I was little I remember (completely rationally) believing that we could absolutely own a pet whale and just have him live in our swimming pool. I guess my fondness of whales never really went away. I appreciate the simplicity of these carvings with their distressed paint and profiled forms. You will definitely find me putting one above my front door someday. Happy Sperm Whale Thursday!

Well this cheered me up. Pictures from photographer blogger Camilla Engman's French Vacation.

Tuesday, Shmuesday

In the words of my sister: "I just want to take a bath!" I'm in the midst of trying to shake my Tuesday blues. I hope everyone is having a great day! I'm going to look at pretty pictures of Costa Rica the rest of the afternoon.

Wall/Hanging Plants

My tiny Manhattan apartment doesn't really allow for this sort of wall planter decor, but I still love it.

Seriously, this child is the coolest kid on the planet. He's peaking before he's even 5 years old! I freakin' love this little guy. See more on Buzz Feed. Well done Gwen & Gavin!
