And another one bites the dust!

The weekend that is. I love Springtime weekends because of the obvious: sunny weather, longer daylight, shopping for flowers and planting them, and BBQs! I'm always so sad to see the weekend come to an end...but as one ends the beginning of summer nears, and I am so ready and excited for it! A couple of updates for all of you!

1) I picked the bathroom lights and I went with the Bellacor double light! Something about it was just so snazzy and I hope I like it as much in real life!2) We spent a pretty penny at Lowes today in the gardening section--9 bags of mulch (already bought 6 last weekend and we still need more) and pretty flowers to plant! Let's hope I work on my green thumb this year!
3) Updated our console table with this cool little branch sculpture from Urban Outfitters (it's used a jewelry holder as shown in the first pic--but we don't use it like that as you can see). David hates it and I love it! I love how he tolerates my decor decisions ;-).
4) I am contemplating this chair for our living room. It is a dark espresso wicker with ivory cushions and chocolate brown piping. I would buy two and put an accent table between them. I have a gift card I could use and coupon codes...what do you think? Do you like?

The yard looks wonderful very good job landscaping once your done you can come my way and do mine.
Think you picked a good light fixture to match bathroom decor, the chair will fit in with the decor.

Love the twig sculpture--so cool! And I love that you came up with a different use for it. It looks great on that table. And I'm also a fan of the chair--I really like the brown piping.

Joi - what I've seen of your home is GORGEOUS. Of course :)

I think the chair looks great - have you only seen it online? I only worry that it might not be comfy. But I've been wrong before!

I might have some news on the "new home" arena - I might buy a condo this month, so expect some decorating questions from me if I indeed get it! You are my interior design guru!

I just adore the twig "art". I may have to steal that idea!

Love the chairs - glad you got them. (just checked and they're out of stock) Also really like your mirror/table arrangement.
