Lovely Things #6

What the what? Yes, my friends — here is another installation of Lovely Things and it took me less than a month in-between to do one! A roundup of some things catching my eye lately. Maybe the common thread this time is luxe European 1970s mixed with luster, botanicals, and pink clouds. Find more Lovely Things roundups to ruminate over HERE.

Oooohhh… HELLO. I love these eyes of pearlite earrings.

This crinkly mango jumpsuit is super cute and so is the rest of the collection.

Still loving these cute pink striped pajamas.

A tube top and a jumpsuit had a really cute dusty mauve baby.

Love these nudie lady earrings in rose gold from a cool collaboration.

I’d very much like to have one of these chalky pink face tote bags.

I don’t know what it is, but I really like these odd colors together.

Fantastic! The mural installation of the acoustic tiles in this boardroom are amazing.

This gem table is a total stunner — as is the whole collection.

I really love this setting moon print — it reminds me of 70s stretched canvas art, but gilded!

I just got myself this cute marbled pink clouds travel mug. Love it!

BRB — going to go to New York to sing love songs to this beautiful, nectar-hued sofa.

My heart is doing flips and twirls over the beautiful 1920s photos in this book.

This Georgia-based artist has so many pretty art prints in her shop.

This DIY for vine wall hangings is pretty cute. It’d be nice in almost any room.

I regret not buying this painting. Took a snooze and lost it!

I love this painting by artist Einar Jolin. She looks like Winona Ryder and Vivien Leigh!

Gotta get my nose on this perfume pronto. Bergamot, rose, and salt water!

One of each of these solid brass geometric incense holders, please.

I’m feeling these white pepper and salt mills. French classics!

Did I just fall in love with copper bundt pans?? Yep. These are special.

I adore this image from the book In Bloom by Ngoc Minh Ngo.

Don’t you just want to run towards these botanical garden doors? Photo by Samuel Zeller.



Happy Friday and Happy Easter! Here’s to a lovely weekend and, hopefully, a little sunshine. We have our niece, a party, and more puppy training on the agenda — we’re trying to keep it pretty a leisurely one. I’m going to gather some yummy things to make a little Easter basket for our niece today and MAAAAYBE we’ll try to go out for brunch Sunday — which could be a little nuts in a town where brunch is already nuts without a holiday thrown in! Eeeeps — we’ll see. Have a fun one! xo Jen
