Year of the Snake

Well, I can't say that I'm a fan of snakes, but in accessory form I am! I know Egyptian is probably not what people have in mind for Lunar New Year, but Elizabeth Taylor as Cleopatra is my favorite example for snake accessories. Here are some wearable snakes that could help you ring in the Year of the Snake in style.

If wearing snakes isn't your style, how cool is this vintage thermos I found on Etsy?

Saturday Shopping

We're heading to a furniture store today, at the boyfriend's request. I honestly don't know what he wants to look for, but benches, a chair for the living room, and a new dining room table and chairs are all things on my list of furniture to get or replace in the semi-near future. Eventually I want to get a new couch too. Here are some things from around the internet I've been eyeing.

The Parker Expandable Dining Table from West Elm. I've been looking for the perfect new dining room table kind of since we moved in, and I think this is it! I've been looking for a table that can be expanded or have leaves added to make it longer for when we have company, but I was having a hard time finding one in a style that I liked. This table was in the holiday (I think) version of the West Elm catalog, in the section with the teeny tiny pictures and details only, but didn't exist on their website yet. I just got the latest catalog in the mail and was super excited that I could finally see bigger pictures and look at it online.

And, have you checked out Thrive Furniture? I'm officially obsessed.

Hmm, I'm sensing a theme here for colors too. Maybe I should keep this in mind as I acquire any new furniture.
