GofE Bouquet - C Wonder

This is one of those websites that I wish I had heard about sooner - and I'm so happy to be sharing it with you!

C Wonder is amazing - adorable accessories, cute clothing, and of course my fave - home decor!

Since I'm currently obsessing over mixed collections of art in vignettes, I thought I'd show you these unique plates - all of which are $38. Mix and match with frames, clocks, art, anything on your walls to make a bold statement. 

ps... there's much more from C Wonder that I'll be putting together so stay tuned.


What a cute little elephant plate!























Fun fun fun!

GofE fave site - 1st Dibs

One of my favorite things to do is peruse magazines - House Beautiful being amongst my subscriptions.

Whenever something catches my eye, I always look up the source of product and immediately go to their website figuring I will find more goodies to admire.

1st Dibs.com is one of those gems that I stumbled upon in a magazine, and I just HAD to share it will all of you.

It's a collection of vintage items - an endless amount for you to get completely lost in. Now mind you, they're not cheap - but if you want to get your hands on some vintage Chanel, or need a unique gift for the special someone in your life who has it all, this place is a goldmine!

Furniture, jewelry, artwork, even multi-million dollar homes! Happy browsing!



Chanel anyone?

If I had a few million sitting around in my bank account

You can't put a price on timeless elegance - Elizabeth Taylor's Jewels

I've been looking to pick up an original Andy Warhol ;)

Pinterest has taken us by storm!

Technology these days... New things sprout up so fast - I remember when it took like a year for a movie to go from theaters to VHS, and half an hour for MTV.com to load up. Oh the anticipation! WHEN can I get Clueless on tape? When, when, WHEN?!?!

I also remember when I detested Facebook. Or should I say, The Facebook. No way would I join thar hubbub rigamarole pieceajunk waste of time. Grumpy, frowny grump face. >.< !! Now it's just a part of life.

Then of course there's Twitter - so lame. I mean who DOESN'T want to know what Kim K is doing RIGHT THIS VERY MINUTE?!?! But now I can't get enough of HGTV's tweets! And OK, Kim K's not so bad either.

I digress...we don't fight it anymore. We instead want to know about the next new thing before our girlfriends... before our co-workers... shoot, before our MOTHERS!

Anyway - it's really not so bad, this whole new technology business - becaaaauuuuse....

Pinterest has taken ovee - and we love it!!!

So I thought I'd put together a bouquet of my favorite pins - not including things like the sock bun or the cute bangs I want to get... you don't need to see that!

I love this circular crystal chandelier


This is the best idea! Nail polish stickers

Who doesn't love Rachel Bilson?

Saturated colors are great for prints

Every bathroom should have a chandelier - I love the dark floors

This was on Esty! A modern baroque mirror

Stripes add visual interest

The most amazing wall sconce I've ever seen. I love the contrast of the dark walls with white accents.

GofE Bouquet - Ballard Designs

This particular bouquet took me by surprise. I had never heard of Ballard Designs - but when I stumbled on their website, I fell in LOVE with their mirrors!

So, much like a bouquet of roses can be gorgeous on its own - this week it's all mirrors!

I love the detail of these mirrors

Available in small, medium and large

There are no words - I just ADORE this!

This reminds me of the homes in Pride and Prejudice

Available in small and large

Adorable, no?

Also available in a larger size - I've never seen anything like this!

GofE Bouquet - Urban Outfitters

I've always loved the fun decorative pieces Urban Outfitters has to offer - most of my baby boy's room is accented with UO finds.

Affordable and unique, I hope you enjoy this collection of adorable tchotchkes and must-haves!


Deer Collage Wall Art $44





Whimsical and simple, I'd love to see this with an ornate frame


A bit of a splurge, but how AWESOME is this?!



This screams to be hung in an unexpected place, perhaps a coat closet or bathroom? Also available in a metallic black!



LOVE LOVE LOVE! It's humorous yet beautiful - my favorite kind of woman


Such an affordable way to add some character to a room



Begging to be hung on a wall - not just set down on a table!



Perfect balance of feminine floral and masculine dark 



Everyone needs this!



Baby Jack has one... college fund! 



A ring holder should live by every sink in the house



Perfect for a boy's room or mixed in with a collection of traditional art



Another friend who lives in baby Jack's room



You only need one to make a huge impact

What a sweet little accent - perfect for above your vanity



Like the ring holder, these little catch-alls should be scattered throughout a home



Throw him in with your fancier pillows - I love the expression on his face



A little vintage touch played out in a quirky way



I love the saturated colors - all it needs is a glossy turquoise frame - can you see it now?




This pulls double duty - adding color and light to a room



Available in so many colors - I can hardly choose!





So what did you think of this beautiful bouquet? Any suggestions of websites you'd like me to sift through for you?
