high/low: brass coal bucket

My family makes a lot of jokes about brass pots.  My aunt (we fondly call her Tootie) reportedly presented my dad with a brass pot one Christmas forever ago and well, the back and forth banter around brass pots continues today.  We have great news in the form of a high/low posting for those folks (including my very own family) who appreciate a great brass pot...   

The High... Footed Brass Coal Bucket from One Kings Lane for $475



The Low... Footed Brass Coal Bucket from Splash of Lime for $65

Your fireplace is begging for this piece.

gigi comes to austin, finds inspiration + treasures

Sorry for our absence.  Gigi came to Austin for a long weekend and we managed to work in some treasure hunting as we ate our way through the city.  I'll be posting Gigi's finds throughout the week, but I wanted to share two of Austin's best-dressed restaurants.  Cheers to inspiration.  

#1.  Josephine House.  
The most perfect spot for a pre-noon or afternoon cocktail.  We love the pretty Oriental rugs, the white   marble, and the bistro chairs on the front lawn.  Gigi and I recommend the Paloma and a spot in one of the alcoves on the outdoor patio!  Also, did I mention Josephine House is within walking distance of my place...  Just.  Saying.  

It is one of the best kept secrets in all of Austin...  Seriously.  We love the honeycomb tiled floors, the reclaimed cabinetry, and the French doors hanging on barn rollers.  Specialty cocktails abound at this farm to table eatery.  We had the chicken and biscuits (think fresh take on traditional chicken and dumplings) on special... and hear this, I'll never be mad about a skillet browned biscuit.  

Check back tomorrow for a fun find.

weekend find: metallic garden stool

Just.  Giddy.  
#1.  Gigi is coming to Austin on Thursday.  
#2.  She found this metallic garden stool over the weekend.

Even if you stumble upon one of these at HomeGoods, it will set you back a pretty penny.  

And I'd be way out of line if I failed to include this little nugget of inspiration from HouseBeautiful...

wicker, inside or out

I grew up with a petite white wicker rocker in my childhood bedroom.  It had a navy upholstered cushion.  And I loved it.  I think of it almost every time I see a piece of wicker furniture.  So it's with sweet sentiment that I share some inspiration... 

Wicker inside...

and out... 

And a pair of white wicker chairs up for grabs... at only $75.

church pews done right

True story.  Gigi has been on the hunt for a good looking church pew for what feels like forever.  (Secretly) I hoped she'd wait and find one when I had a house-house to put it in... but y'all know as well as I do that when Gigi is looking for something she generally finds it!  

Before I show you her prize, which yes... we're selling... I have five church pews done oh so right.  

#1.  
A church pew in the prettiest mudroom.

#2.  
A church pew in a super traditional foyer.  

#3. 
A church pew in a modern, open loft space.  

#4.
A church pew on a porch and hanging ferns, duh!

#5. 
A church pew in a breakfast nook.  Pillows added for comfort.  

And Gigi's prize...

high/low: silverplate tray

I love a bright white kitchen.  And when I happened upon this image, I fell for that silverplate tray hanging above the stove.  I imagine it'd make a merry home for handwritten recipes and a few fun magnets.

The High... 
A Silverplate Tray from One King's Lane... $224

The Low... 
A Silverplate Tray from Splash of Lime... $45
