Smitten.


You've seen the Lust List--things that I want. Now, check out what has me Smitten--things that I have and love. This month's Smitten is the Birthday Edition. I am very blessed! Enjoy.
My Missoni Espresso Set--this was the ONE thing I wanted and didn't get from that whole Target hoopla. Luckily, my bestie got me one and managed to keep it a secret until my bday! Look at the little spoons! I've been switching the order of the cups/saucers around and making everyone use them. "Oh, you want some water? HOW ABOUT IN A MISSIONI ESPRESSO CUP?"
I love carafes--I made my own here--and was thrilled to receive this one from Crate and Barrel. All that's missing is a bottle of wine. What gives, guys? Thanks, Leigh & the boys! And the pumpkin cookie jar is from my brother and his family.
This Remington Ceramic Curling Wand was on my Birthday Wishlist, and I LOVE it. Highly recommended and last seen here.
One of you lovely ladies pinned these on Pinterest, and for $14, these Kenneth Lane pearl earrings were mine! And the pumpkins were from my bosses--I collect them (Yes, I'm weird. What's new?)
As I mentioned in my Lust List, I love Russian Nesting Dolls, and this necklace is too cute and teeny. I believe it's from F21. I love mini things!
My Mom wanted me to have a reminder of my childhood to pass onto my own kids, so she tracked down my favorite doll as a kid. My pup Charlie keeps taking her and hiding her! It's Holly Hobbie's sister (I think), Carrie.

What have you been Smitten with lately?

    hmm I've been smitten with Marilyn Monroe canvases. The picture needs to be on a canvas or I won't purchase it. Believe it or not, I found 3 great ones at Icing. They are now hanging in my living room.
