Thursday's Randoms


I'm definitely a big fan of these mint porcelain bowls by artist Kim Westad.  She has amazing stuff in her shop, seriously.


I'm head-over-heels in love with these doors and the rug, especially paired together.  Why can't Gus let us own a rug? Why does he have to run to it whenever he gets a hairball?  Le sigh...



Seeing tops like this has me totally ready for fall (at least fashion-wise).  Such beautiful fall colors!


Tonight I am going to the Kentucky State Fair! I haven't been to a fair in ages, probably since high school.  I'm pretty excited to eat some fried stuff, barf it all up on some rides and listen to this band.  


The other night, we bought a firepit for our yard (yay for sales!) and it is going to be awesome.  Aside from a fence and a dog (and flowers and a gnome), our yard is really only missing one other thing - a hammock.  Wouldn't this netted cocoon hammock be pretty awesome? Especially out here, in mosquito heaven.  I want one, that's for sure.


Lastly, I couldn't resist leaving you with this incredible set of Mr. Fox espresso cups.  They would make my mornings pretty wonderful (at least at first, right?!)

***UPDATE***  I found MISS BADGER cups! Woo!

Happy Thursday!

There is so much about this post I love! First I'm a Wisconsin Badger so those cups are a MUST for me. Second, I need that shirt in my life. And third... loving the barn doors!!!

The badger espresso cups are so GENIUS! Oh, and the sliding barn doors with that gorgeous rug? Heaven. Kind of like drinking cocoa out of those bowls by your fire pit.

cocoon hammock needs to find a place in my backyard immediately...seriously.

megan August 18, 2011 at 2:30 PM  

these randoms are glorious! have so much fun at the fair!

I am Megan August 18, 2011 at 2:46 PM  

Where do I start?!

Okay, firstly, I love the green bowls. But then the Mr Fox and Badger cups nearly had me in tears! I love badgers, they are such misunderstood little critters.

And then, the doors are lovely, but did you see the antler chandelier?

Oh Meagan, you are making me all emotional about inanimate objects. As you said, Le Sigh.

Erin August 18, 2011 at 3:21 PM  

Ou! That top is awesome. I'm getting excited for Fall too!

birdie to be August 18, 2011 at 5:25 PM  

LOVE those bowls! And the oversized barn doors! So awesome!

Johanna August 18, 2011 at 5:25 PM  

You so have to get the badger mugs. And I smiled reading about the fair and barfing up fried food. Hilar.

Kallie, Happy Honey and Lark August 18, 2011 at 9:25 PM  

I want to drink tea from the badger cups in that cool hammock tent!! Cool favs :)

Huckleberry Creative August 18, 2011 at 9:57 PM  

That shirt is amazing! Love the pattern. The hammock looks super cozy too!

Meggan of Lila Grace August 18, 2011 at 10:12 PM

Those barn doors are AMAZING! I wish they somehow fit into my 1960's ranch home. : )

Love the doors AND the hammock is super cool! ... I certainly wouldn't say no to those mugs ... so cute! :)

Jennifer August 20, 2011 at 7:11 AM  

That top is gorgeous! I have to remember to give Quiksilver a look every so often... they're doing some great things. I am cranking for Fall and all it encompasses: great clothes, cider, candy apples, amazing colors in nature, chilly weather, and on, and on...

Brandi {not your average ordinary} August 21, 2011 at 10:49 AM  

That nested hammock cocoon is just what I've always needed. I love to be outdoors, but I hate all the bugs that try and attack me while I'm out there trying to read. I've gotta get me one of those!

madeleine August 23, 2011 at 4:33 AM
