Coolest Phone Ever

I need to have this phone!

via Etsy

Remember when you were 12 or 13, and you wanted a phone in your bedroom DESPERATELY (ok when I was 13 and I wanted a phone desperately...), and you just had to have one (espeically one like this, or this)?? Well that's how I feel now. These have been floating around on Etsy and Ebay, but I am waiting until one is a little cheaper. The one pictured above is $68.00, while the brand new ones at PB Teen (below) are only $49! (Unfortunately they don't come in yellow.)

So now you all know. If you see one for cheap, pick it up for me and I will pay you back! Or get it for me for my birthday! OR, does anyone know of somewhere that sells a new version in yellow?

Mood Board Monday

This is a mood board I put together for the pewter + sage Mood Board Monday. I've been wanting to do this for so long, but every Monday I forget. This time I actually remembered in time to participate in the fun!

We had to plan a room around the Andalusia Rug from West Elm:
This is about the color of my living room, and it is the one room in the house that is totally incoherent. So here are some of my current wishes and dreams for that space! Husband are you paying attention? :-D

Chocolate Brown Crocheted Pillow Cover

I was browsing in one of Richmond's higher-end fabric and decor shops the other day(Williams and Sherrill), when I came across this pillow on a very Ralph Lauren-esque bedding display. So pretty! I love the deep chocolate color and the cozy texture.

I also love the big buttons on the back and that you basically get two nubby pillows in one.

Almost $70 seems reasonable for this pillow, right? WRONG, because I just taught myself how to crochet! AND I just happen to have a plain chocolate brown pillow hanging out in my bedroom that is crying out for some adornment.

Here is a close up of the front of the pillow.
I'm thinking the front is 9 granny squares, and the back is two plain knitted pieces, one with button holes. Wish me luck!
