…favorite things friday: le creuset ON SALE!

One King’s Lane is having a sale on Le Creuset today and before I purchase a few essentials myself, I had to tell you all about it! If you do not have a staple dutch oven from Le Creuset, you must treat yourself. I literally cook with it every single night, keep it out on my stove all year round and would die without it. Okay, not die, but definitely be lost. If I only had this dutch oven and one spoon in my kitchen to cool with I would be okay.

There are many colors, but you may recognize the fire orange (it’s also the one I own.) You want the size here that Ina is holding and you know you can’t go wrong if it’s a piece she uses.

…paintings

I hope she does not kill me for posting this, but I know you have been asking me about the beautiful artwork that hangs in my interiors for years. You want to know who did it and where to buy it.

Small Room Design

The answer is my family – my mother-in-law, Celia. She is a super artistic person in her own right and her style comes out through her own gorgeous interiors and many artistic endevors. We have much in common in this way. There is joy and purpose in keeping our hands busy while creating something beautiful.

Celia started creating these paintings maybe 6 years ago – or at least that is when I first saw them popping up as house-warming gifts for her children. She created two beautiful custom pieces for our home when we first moved in with the colors of my home.

I was brought to tears when she arrived early Saturday morning, my Luckett’s move in day, to take care of the kids with a painting in hand. I could not think of a more perfect and thoughtful gift – childcare and art! I literally wanted to hang the piece in my home right then and there. It is a beautiful blue with flecks of brown and at the bottom, subtle brush strokes of brown depicting the idea of a nest.

I know you want to get your hands on her work and I am trying to gently peer pressure her into selling a few. I have hung this beautiful piece in my patch of land at Luckett’s with a little sign saying it is for display in the hopes that there will be some coming along in the near future.

Thank you again, Frammie. Love you.

…favorite things friday: marble top tables

I finished up a few marble-top tables recently. I think marble, vintage tables are so simple, but offer such class to a space. Usually you will find a wood base, which can be ornate or simple and then a cut of a Carrara or other white veined piece of marble on top. The marble is heavy and is cut to fit the base.

Here is one of the tables that I brought out of my Luckett’s space yesterday. Did you know that you can call in to the shop and buy a piece and they will hold it for you until you can pick up?!

I love how a base like this looks in Paris Grey. I believe I priced it about $250. There is also a matching smaller one out there too.

FYI – I have just purchased several Santos dolls that I will be putting in my space at Luckett’s as soon as they come in.

Let’s check out how marble-tops look in home-y spaces.

I think marble is such a clean, classy look even when not found in the kitchen!
