Inspired By…

by kmcopeland

I’ve got jet-setting on my mind. Maybe it’s because our trip to Egypt got cancelled, maybe it’s because I seem to live in the only place in the Northern hemisphere where it’s actually getting colder, but I can’t stop thinking about hopping on a plane and heading south – somewhere warm, exotic and green. While the Swede and I aren’t of jet-setting status (yet!), my mom always told me to dream big. And I could seriously get down with a life of leisurely traveling the globe from one posh spot to another. That’s why this month’s inspiration is all about exotic pieces in bold & gold! My favorites are the gold leafed beer bottles…I see a DIY project in my future.

Friday’s Fancy: Ombre Dishes

by kmcopeland

If you’ve been following my blog, you know that I am seriously digging the 70’s trend, so I was delighted to come across Sketch42’s blog post about purple ombre dishes. Said my gut to me: those are fabulous and you have to have some immediately. Honestly, I don’t know how I’ve managed to live this long without owning an ombre dish set. Everything seems so lackluster now…so dull…so solid-colored. I am convinced that life will be exponentially better once I have ombre dishes in my possession: my cocktails will be perfectly mixed; my water will always have cut up lemons and/or limes in it; everyone will want to come to parties at my house.  I have found some that I like but would like you to weigh in:

Teal & fabulous:

Turquoise & equally fabulous:

Metal & badass:

The first two pictures are not a set, but I think I could get away with having all of it together. Plus, they are very much my color of the moment. While the silver ombre glasses are FANTASTIC, I really hate that there are only three. What do you think?
