Florence Broadhurst Inspired!



If you're like me, then you FAH-REAKED out over the Florence Broadhurst inspired collection from Kate Spade last year. Wait. Was that last year already?? Good grief!!!

That means I have been meaning to do something with this inspiration for THAT long!?! 

Time. It flies.

Anyway, my favorite of the collection was this Japanese inspired floral fan pattern.  


I REALLY wanted that dress that the dark haired model is wearing. If you happen to find one in a size 12 TELL A GIRL!!

Anyway, I put this inspiration away in my brain files and then one day........

......I saw this stencil on the stencil boss website and we lived happily ever after. 
The end. 
Just kidding! 

I bought it. 
Then it sat around for a long time and then I FINALLY did something with it!

Nothing bold and high contrast, as you might suspect I would do, 
I did something subtle....




Yes. I knew there was such a thing!


You can't see the whole thing yet because it isn't all finished, but I can tell you that it ties in with the watercolor inspired theme....



And the desk/vanity that I have been working on...



Which is getting close to being finished! 

ok...you can have a little peak...


See. Subtle.
It's a new thing for me. 


Dear SignatureThings.com,
Please hurry up and ship these.....



...because I can't wait any longer!

Each delivery for the shop this week HAS NOT been these fabulous drawer pulls. 
I am very certain of this as I have had my face plastered to the door watching for deliveries all week!
This girl needs her drawer pulls.

You know what else this girl needs??

A lucite drapery rod. Preferably of the square shape.



Dear Hubs,
I know you have always wanted a lucite drapery rod. 
Happy Anniversary!
Love, Kelle

Seriously though, have you seen this etsy shop:


I will take one of everything!



I don't know who these people are, but they obviously want ALL of my money, and they know exactly how to get it!

I promise to share the rest soon, and  unfortunately for me, if I am unable to pull off the lucite drapery rod disguised as a fast car, I don't think the hubs is gonna make one a part of the final reveal. Dang. Who needs fast cars anyway?? Boys.

Inspired by Watercolors....


....a subtle color palette....


Hints of blue, purple, and even green...


Painted by a local artist, Helen Napier, and LOVED very much by ME! 

I know that someday I will probably let them go for the sake of a client with the perfect space, but  for now, they are ALL MINE, muahahahahahaha!

bad picture by me, water color by Helen Napier

I can hardly wait until they are all framed up and the vignette is put together!! 

Imagine a vanity with simple clean lines, a ghost chair with a fluffy Mongolian wool cushion, shiny silver and acrylic brushes, a vintage vanity mirror and these painting floating on a watery wall. 

Where's the best place to buy a Mongolian wool hide?? Anyone?

Here is the vanity....


....I am nearly hyperventilating as I imagine the possibilities for this thing!

Can't you see some lucite hardware on this baby??


Here are a couple inspirational images...


.....currently swooning over that mirror!!

And then, passing out into this chair....
 ..where I will wake with a fabulous pattern embedded into my skin.

I am getting started on this dream RIGHT NOW!
