Hello Christmas Cards

Yes - it's February and I am finally posting photos of our Christmas cards from this year (ahem - last year now). I used these gift tag templates from Eat Drink Chic. I cut off the top portion to make them look more like cards instead of gift tags. I then added ribbon, some glitter, and wrote messages on the backsides.

OK, I'm really done with the Christmas related posts now. I promise. Although I could probably look at burlap year round.

Hello 2 Horatio Street

Dear Husband,

I am mildly obsessed with this New York Penthouse. It supposedly may be Jennifer Aniston's new home. I would like it to be mine instead. It would be a really lovely Valentine's Day gift. Pretty please?!


Now if you love it as much as I do it can be yours for the small sum of $14.95 million.

Hello Guest Bath

Alright folks, I'm going to need your help on this one. Today is the last day of the Restoration Hardware Bath sale and I need to make some purchases. Mainly - a drain trap, water supply lines, and a faucet. Below is the Gramercy Washstand with glass legs. I purchased this sucker last year on super sale from Restoration Hardware (minus the marble top - I can purchase one somewhere for way less than what RH was going to charge). The finish on mine is satin nickel because that is all that was available. Would it be OK to order the other items in polished nickel? I like the shiny-ness more on the polished finish. What about mixing finishes - could I do the satin nickel and add some brass/bronzey hardware? So many decisions and so little time.

And for the even bigger questions what look do I go for in here? It is a guest bathroom, we have a claw foot tub that was originally in our master bath, and we have a toilet that is already there. Other than that I've just got lots of ideas and pretty images.

I'm loving the brass in these images but I'm a little chicken to go that route - would you/have you?!

And my current fave: Herringbone pattern.

I'm also loving the shape of the backsplash in this one.

I'm stuck. Help.
