Tis the season...

It's the most wonderful time of the year.  My {long, winding} weekend was sprinkled with shopping and infusing vodka.  That is wonderful.

Sultry and savory...

The subtle smell of sweet pumpkin is floating in the air.  Here's a flirtatious amuse bouche to tease your senses on the eve of the most gracious day of the year.
I have recently rediscovered the savory texture of beets hiding under saturated color and sultry curves.  Katie Quinn Davies has perfectly captured their charisma.  Wander over to one of the most beautiful places and feast on the gorgeous styling and delicious recipes of What Katie Ate.  Mmmm...

I love the wonder of intricate details.  Photographer Idha Lindhag captured these details beautifully - my imagination is gushing wildly with the curiosity of what lies beyond the boundaries of this image.

Solid precipitation...

Yesterday brought the first sprinkling of solid precipitation, covering the ground like a knit blanket and making me lust after this fireplace.  Then liquid precipitation washed it all away {except for my mantle craving, of course}.
{This gorgeous dichotomy of simultaneously warm and cold was found at Tomorrow's Parties.}

I could use a touch of over-sized golden circus propaganda resting on my wall.  Could you?

This illustration {Raiders of Their Host's Riches} by Jason Holley danced from the artist's mind while looking at Victorian ephemera.  Sigh.

Oh Oliver...

I was sifting through my archives and found an industrial charm in Copenhagen that deserves another visit.  This is the charming antique shop of Oliver Gustav on the bottom floor of an old distillery.  The second floor is the gorgeous masculine home of Mr. Gustav.
