I know, it's not Wednesday, but since I'm having a baby tomorrow I thought I'd get one last wish-list post on the record before I enter baby-land. Each of these are books I would adore, use, and peruse through on rainy days. all available on amazon.

This printmaker's sideboard is quite possibly the coolest piece of furniture I've seen in years and I have to have it (I've measured and it will fit my entry hallway just right). It's one of those pieces I long to find at a flea market but know that someone who came at 4am would already have hauled it off.
oh. my. This candle smells like pure heaven, like a sun-filled home with wet beach towels hanging to dry. I need it...I really do.Spreegirl hipster-undies just look so sweet & sexy - they come in the best patterns, and I never say no to a ruffle.

Amazing! It has all of the ingredients of a perfect film: gorgeous Audrey Tautou, visually stunning sets (like living in an Anthropologie photo shoot), and the story of a woman who makes dreams come true from hard work and passion. I saw this with my girlfriends and haven't stopped daydreaming ever since...totally recommend it!

9 days until I have this baby girl. 9 days until I can eat more than 5 bites without feeling like I'm about to explode. 9 days until I can sleep on my stomach without 12 pillows, oh the joy! 9 days until my brain functions somewhat normally and I might remember what I was supposed to be doing once I reach the top of the staircase. thank you for always being kind, and for your words of encouragement! xo

The nursery is finally complete! It's such a cozy little spot, I have a feeling someone will be very snug in here. The fact that we turned our closet into the nursery was such a challenge, but when I look at it now, I can't even remember what it looked like before. It was hard to capture images, with the sunlight beaming in, but you get the idea. Still waiting on a rug and a few more things for the wall, but come in & take a peek! for-like-ever, yellow pom-pom trim, daisy pendant light, sun+moon mobile, dwell bedding, crib (hand-me-down free =good), knobs

Silky finish & brilliant shine - yes, please! The very first item on my holiday wish*list is this new Moroccan Oil that's supposed to work pure beauty magic into hair like mine (wavy, curly, a little out-of-control). It comes in a glass bottle (even better) and the line includes shampoo, conditioner, masks and gold glimmer shine - can you say gorgeous holiday hair?

On Saturday I found 2 thick catalogs in my mailbox - Anthropologie Holiday & Victoria's Secret Holiday and I have to tell you, I had to giggle at the comparison. The Anthro catalog was chock full of bright and shiny and left me with chills of excitement, not to mention many dog-eared pages. I wanted to be alone by the fire and live in my snow-filled dream world. I didn't bother opening the other one, being 9.5 months prego, that's the last thing I need to see, but I did hand it over to my husband, I mean he deserves to be left with chills and dog-eared pages, too, right? Well, he had the perfect reaction, he said the girls look too young & too skinny now, LOVE him.

Maybe it's because I haven't had a waist for the last 9 months...but I am ridiculously excited for holiday clothes this year. I'm pretty sure this ruffle top will be living at my house once this baby is out and this velvet blazer is an all-out holiday staple. all from anthro
ps....sorry for the lack of posts, these last couple weeks before baby have been tough!

I don't think burlap gets the respect it deserves - it's all rugged + rustic, but can also look refined without looking stodgy. When lit, it casts a dreamy autumn glow that warms a home right up. There's a custom-made rectangular chandelier in Coastal Living this month that I can't stop dreaming about, and I'd love to find something similar for our dining room for under $300...any suggestions?
