Ebay Score

I rarely cruise ebay but it's fun to browse every once in a while...
I scored this NWT Trina Turk makeup bag for $1.99 and it just came in the mail today.
Love it!


That's all for now... Happy Wednesday!

Home Exteriors

I usually focus on design ideas for the inside of the house but how gorgeous are these yards and exteriors?

Feeling Inspired- Look for Less

Even though we're (hopefully) at the tail end of winter... I can't help dreaming about how much elegance and timelessness a beautiful fire place adds to any family room. We don't have one and I'm glad we opted not to get the upgrade (it would have gone in the dining room... a crazy place to put it, I think). But I have been scheming about how to add some elegance and depth to our small downstairs family room.

I think it's beautiful how most of these images have art work above the mantels, but we are by no means a "tv free" household. The TV goes above... How else would I watch Housewives while reheating my TJ's pasta? 
Here are my inspiration pics: 

(love the framed TV)

(notice the Octopus Triptych?)

I'm pretty sure I found a solution... more to come ;)

Vintage Starburst

Starburst mirrors are everywhere lately! I think they are fun, but not really my style.
 I do, however, love starburst accessories. They create an instant retro look like here on Kortney... very Mad Men!
I found some on etsy for $11 by switching my search mode to "vintage."  There are all kinds of fab vintage finds on etsy if you are willing to put in the time searching.
