have a nice weekend!

im going out of town tonight! we are going to exeland, wisconsin which is about 30 miles away from hayward, wi. i am excited but UGH i hate packing. joe is at work, so once again i get to pack alone and load all the camping gear into the car. this would be fine if we didnt have 4 flights of stairs to walk up and down at our apt!

it should be a nice weekend. relaxing, hopefully. im kicking myself for not having a camera to bring but thats okay. its going to be beautiful outside- mid 70s- so im sure the nights will be cool enough for a sweater (yes!!).

i think ive asked you guys before, but have you heard of west elm? oooh its so lovely, great design for affordable prices. i get about 6 design catalogs in the mail, and this one is by FAR my favorite. i obsess over it all the time. here are my current favorite photos:

salt and pepper shakers

i'd love to make a mirror similar to this, but i would stain mine a dark color.

i NEED a serving tray and the one on the bottom is so perfect! (and so dear to my heart!)

something about this bedroom makes me think of sleeping late on a sunday morning. oh, and the rug and dresser are to die for!

i want the orange one! mmmm, cozy.

today i will find out if i am accepted for art vs. craft! yay!

okay, have a good weekend everyone! see you on monday!

West Elm, Pottery Barn, Hold Everything, Gardener's Eden, Willams-Sonoma. They are all the same company under the Williams-Sonoma umbrella. I used to work for them + found them to be a great company. I love the great look of all the West Elm furnishings. Insiders Tip: Stay away from the linens + ANYTHING Chenille, not quite up to par + biggest return items.
OOOH Camping, fun! It's the return un-packing I don't like, Enjoy!

I love West Elm, though I have never bought anything from them. I am saving my nickels and dimes for some dining room chairs that they have. Got the table already (super deal at Crate and Barrel)!! One thing at a time, right?!?!? Hope you are well. Can't wait to see what you have been up to when you get a camera! Happy camping!
