Sh*t I Love, #1


Ed note: Sorta sorry for the thinly veiled profanity. It's just that I'm THAT excited about my sh*t. Or at least trying to be.

Do you come back from a quick perusal of Instagram or Pinterest (and by quick I mean an hour that was only an hour because the baby started crying) feeling exhilarated, inspired, and that your home looks like a pile of poo?

Like you decorated from a 1980's garage sale of your grandparent's basement? (And I mean that in the shag green carpet, broken porcelain horse figurine, and a shot glass that looks like a cowboy boot way.)

Because that's how I feel after a good hour pinning.

But I keep at the Instagramming and Pinning because one day I know I'm gonna be able to do one of these fabulous remodels of my home. But unfortunately for the present me I cannot even afford the "Low" version in a super sweet High/Low decorating scheme.

And sometimes this makes me sad.

A beautiful home I pinned for future inspiration
but really made me cry on the inside.

So I decided to fight back against the sad and start a little segment on LBIO called "Sh*t I Love." It's where I take a picture of sh*t I found around my house and remember that I like it.

So here is my first edition.

My wonderful sh*t!

1) Beautiful little bowls in my favorite colors. Like watercolor droplets of happiness.
2) Monogrammed linen cocktail napkins given to me as a wedding gift.
3) Awesome frame I picked up at an estate sale with one of my favorite photos of my dog inside. (And yes, that photo is blurry because I took it)
4) Small blue ceramic holder thing that I still haven't figured out what to do with. It has a mate. And actually DID come from my grandmother's basement.

And the coup de grace: The blanket the sh*t is on. I have loved it since I was eighteen and off to college. So soft and cuddly.

So get a good look. Are you feeling envious of my awesome sh*t? Envious enough to go out and waste an hour of your life photographing your awesome sh*t?

Good.

I've done my job.

Now e-mail me a photo of that sh*t and I'll post it up on this here blog to make errybody out there green with envy.  (daisydrawlerATgmailDOTcom)

found you from making it lovely and I love your precious objects. Very pretty and definitely not excrement. But the title is an attention grabber no doubt.
