Random Friday Fancies

December 7, 2012

Sorry, dudes. This week got away from me. Between dinners with old friends and shop visits with new ones, I overindulged on food, fun and drinkies. It was awesome!

Also awesome was this major Mikasa score while antiquing last weekend. Just think about the tabletop potential with me, please.

Must. Find. Gold. Flatware.

If you're following me on Instagram (@tobe_reed), you saw these other fun (and VERY reasonably priced) finds, too.

I came across these hide stunnas while visiting with my friend Jaclyn at her gorgeous shop. Decisions, decisions . . .

Aaaaaaaaaaand -- best treat of the week -- my uber talented cousin, Elizabeth, surprised us with this belated wedding gift!!!!! How ridiculous is she???

Etsy shop pending, it sounds like. Custom portraits as well as treats like these!

I told her we need a leopard print version. Will be sure to keep you all posted.

Random question from the Insta newb . . . How do you save for #latergrams? I'm apparently not cool enough to figure it out. Help!

Lastly (I hate that word), prepare yourselves for Casa de Tobe overload next week. I'm snapping some current state pictures and potential plans for the space. I'm tired of holding out on you guys.

Happy weekend! ox

tobes - (yep, we're close like that), i love that drawing your sweet cuz did for you - how nice? also, i found a headboard in kelly green, just like that, on the side of the road at the beach last year. my hubs was MORTIFIED that i stopped and put it in the car. and to his sweet vindication, it didnt fit on any of our beds :( so i paid it forward. but will always have a fondness for them :)

The coolest finds! I don't think I've done a latergram but just take the pic with your phone camera not with instagram, that's how I take all mine ;) *I just can't handle the "you just have one shot option!"

Glad it was a good week.
Love that dish set. LOVE I say.
West Elm has a decently affordable gold flatware.
Can't wait to see house pics for inspirational/voyeuristic reasons.;)

Is Coveted Home based in Kansas City? I have been searching for some new furniture for our house and I love some of the things on her site!

@Ali, it is! You should DEFINITELY pop in. She has the most gorgeous collection. She's right by the Mission Antique Mall at 83rd and Mission Rd.
