SPRINKLES AND SUCH

I haven't shared my recent flea market and other 
random finds with you in while. 
I've been accumulating photos and finally decided to 
make a mix match post of the random things I've collected over the past couple weeks.  
 中秋節快樂!
I hope everyone was able to get their Mooncakes!
I so badly wanted to find a chocolate version but flavors were limited. 
I opted for walnut and date. 
I SO miss the pretty choices they had in Shanghai!
 The way I incorporate color in my apartment is primarily with 
flowers, fruit, and plants. 
I scored the large white asian style case for $4 from a flea market and the little owl vase from Anthropologie.

 I spied this little porcelain bunny figurine at a local 
flea market a couple weeks ago. 
He was made in Japan and probably dates back to the 1920's.
Lucky because it's the year of the Rabbit and totally reminded me of Bao, though his ears aren't lopped. 
 Some new Succulents add some life and permanent "color" to my living room, and a new flea market find: a pretty milk glass 
canister to hold loose change.
To cure my sweet tooth, I've been adding a pinch of rainbow 
sprinkles to my Nespresso. I don't take sugar in my coffee, and 
this doesn't give a sugary taste, just makes it slightly more 
yummy and pretty....of course.   
My first pair of Chanel studs.

  13. Random question! Have you found a 2012 planner? I'm a big planner junkie too and you have great taste! When you find one will you share? You're amazing!

  14. Adorable! Have you ever tried a moleskine planner? I love them, I'm totally obsessive about planners and really think they may a huge difference in my efficiency/productivity levels. They are so effortless and classy I think. Also, Kate Spade has a really adorable 2012 planner out on fredflare.com --> you might like it! Anyway, YUM mooncakes. My favorite kind is the lianrong with double egg yolks :) Love all your designery stuff, your taste is great :) My tumblr (starsandbutterflies.tumblr.com) is my tribute to fashion, interior design, and beautiful things so please check it out if you have a chance.
