FLIP FLOP

My little place is a never ending project. 
I'm constantly rearranging and switching nik naks around to make little improvements.
 I've recently found some decor pieces at various swap meets and added them into my collection...
Here's a peek: 
I absolutely LOVE this enormous, vintage, sweet faced brass deer statue. 
She's intricately carved with beautiful adornments that look like jewelry....You know I'm loving that!
She's just so chic and statuesque. 
 Black "milk glass" is rare and pricy. I found this little Greek key edged pot(above)in a $5 bin, so I'm not positive it's milk glass....But it ties in my Chinese style lacquer box so well.
... 
The little milk glass table lighter (above) is so glam...I can just see beautifully dressed post war women leaning over to have their cigarettes lit while sipping on mint juleps <3
...
I saw these adorable gold striped painted cups at a swap meet a month or so ago and passed them up because they 're different sizes. When I came across them again I snatched them up. 
For now, they look adorable holding little tea lights...But who knows what I'll be using them for next week :) 
Did anyone make getting your Moroccan Pouf a priority on Sunday morning? 
I certainly did! 
In all honesty, I was expecting Target's Calypso collection to be as BLAH as so many of their other hyped up past collections were. I decided I was just going to  bite the bullet and opt for a legit Moroccan Pouf if Target's fell short. 
Needles to say, I was pleasantly surprised with the quality and took one home. Yes the shape is different, it's much lighter in weight and is faux leather but It's a very  close version and for less than 1/3 of the price. 
*Me resting my feet atop my Moroccan Pouf wearing my new chunky heels buy Steve Madden, definitely a version of the YSL's or Brian Atwood's but with a muchhh more stylish heel!

  16. Hi,
    I found the mirror trey at target last week after I've read your post. LOVE IT. I went to Walmart for looking for silver small tray to day and looked everywhere but I couldn't find it. I was wondering where did you find it.
    Thank you
    Liz

  17. I don't have a twitter account, I actually don't really know how to use twitter..I'm shamefully admitting to that, lol.
    The deer reminds me of an Egyptian statue, love it:)

  18. I learn so much from your blog. Every element that you add, adds so much dimension. Almost like layering, like you do with your necklaces. Every piece is so unique and arty! Just marvelous! : )

  19. Lovely finds, love all the accessories you've put together, especially those candles holders! The moroccan pouffe is amazing, does not look cheap at all, I'm thinking about getting a white leather one! x

  20. Lovely the decor! Contrast between the white and black, combined with silver is fabulous. Also I especially love the black box with silver square detailing.

  22. Designer handbags within of the morning differ greatly, but all appear to reveal just one characteristic, they are popular! And boy are we ready to spend for them! Today's good purses can price tag upwards of a massive variety of bucks plus they are much far greater than only a carrying object, but are hand designed with excellent designs, good stitching and expensive labels.
