Black Baroque

Have you ever used the "pounce" option on Etsy? I have! That's how I usually find these great vendors.
I was "pouncing" around earlier today and stumbled on this store: BlackBaroque.
They were recently featured on Etsy's front page!
How amazing are these? I think I am going to buy some for my bedside. These prints do not come with the frame however I've seen this stuff everywhere. Worst case scenario you can grab one from a vintage shop and spraypaint it with highgloss paint from the hardware store. 

These prints are all on collected antique paper and the illustrations are dated from the time period of the 16th and 18th centuries.

Take a look...they are so beautiful!

Linen and Things

H & M home has not come to North America...yet. That hasn't stopped me from checking out their site from time to time just to torture myself a little...

In line with the color of the season, H&M has come out with a linen line of home accessories.

As you may have already figured out, I looove this rustic, raw, cozy look! With the soft natural colors and delicate prints you simply can't go wrong!

Check out their newest line of linen pieces:

All Bronzed Up

Yesterday I was scrolling through Anthropologie's home section online and came across this flatware set.
I am literally screaming inside with excitement! These are so gorgeous I must have them right now!
How beautiful would these look on a rustic themed tablescape with nothing but white linens and birch pillar candles. I am so in love!
