high/low: French nightstand

Gigi and I love the romance of French provincial pieces.  
While we love the pretty lines, we don't always love the price tags on these pieces.  

A prime example:  
Newport Cottages Provence Nightstand... $795

Enter our way more affordable option... a similar nightstand (with drawer and shelf) for only $42
15" x18" x 24" H

Sure... our version could use a paint job and it needs hardware, but those things could be taken care of in no time.  And if DIY-ing isn't your thing, we'll do it for you.

Splash of Lime at home

Do ya'll remember this perfect bar cart?  

Well, you may know about Amy from Yellow Hammer Design Shop.  She claimed the bar car a while back and added it to this little corner of her living room. 

The styling is perfect... and yes, yes... we are all dying over that lamp!  

Good work Amy and thanks for sending your readers our way...

second chance: tortoise shell ice bucket

Because you all loved these ice buckets and they both sold nearly as soon as they went up online... 

We quickly scooped this one up and we are happy to offer it to you today...

birthday wish list

Ya'll.  Meeting readers is one of the happiest outcomes  of our little blog.  I'm convinced that Gigi and I have come across the absolute sweetest folks in North Carolina.  When we started, I never really thought twice about Splash of Lime growing the way it has and I certainly never considered the ways it would foster new friendships.  Our sweet readers, even the ones we meet for the very first time in random parking lots in the cold and the rain, seem to know and value us.  I recently met one such reader who implored me to include a few more personal posts on Splash of Lime.  She said she tunes in every day not only because she loves to see what we've found, but because she just loves hearing about what Gigi and I have been up to... a sweet reminder of the relationship she has with her own mother.  So, this reader and I chatted about ideas for posts that would give readers a little more insight into my life...  With my birthday coming up, she suggested a post featuring a birthday wish list.  So sweet friends... here it goes...   
  

want:
1. Bobbi Brown skincare products are my absolute favorite./  2.  Santa seriously upgraded my weekend travel situation with sweet Ame and Lulu bags.  Additions welcome./  3.  Delicious Diptyque candle.

need:  
  4. My current running shoes should be retired.  These Mizunos would be a perfect replacement./ 5.  New running tights to replace the pairs I've had since college./ 6.  A running watch.

wear: 
7.  Perfect party dress./ 8.  Neutral flats.  These would do./ 9.   Jacquie Aiche Alphabet Rings for stacking./  10.  Lovely watch for spring./ 

read: 
11.  Night Circus for March book club./ 12.  A Thousand Splendid Suns for April book club.  

What do you think?  Are you ok with the occasional more personal post?  I'll be back later this afternoon with a more traditional Splash of Lime post... how does a second chance at a tortoise shell ice bucket sound?  

Love, love, love.  sat

weekend find: brass etagere

I'm loving the pretty pagoda top on this brass etagere we just picked up... 

We are asking $175... not bad compared to the thousands of dollars folks are spending on similar pieces on 1stdibs.  What do you think?

Splash of Lime at home: watermelon pink

I am thrilled to share the second installment of our At Home series.   Meredith, a sweet, sweet friend and author of the sassy blog, High Cotton Style, has impeccable taste.   She has a few Splash of Lime pieces in her home, but my favorite may be the round glass-top table she picked up several months ago... 

Remember this one?  
Well, Meredith took to it with a can of watermelon pink spray paint!    As a self-proclaimed advocate for a pop of pink in every room, I absolutely adore this made over table and its role as sweet little perch for family photos.       


M, you have a great eye and you put together beautiful rooms!  Thank you, thank you for sharing!
