before he throws them in the trash....








i have so many random photos that i have stored on the computer for this blog. last night warren was cleaning up our computer/ yelling at me about why our computer is in the state it is in- so i thought i should share some of my favorites pictures i have saved (before they get trashed by my husband)!! he just doesn't understand why i need all of these images and my response "because i love them and for future posts" *insert eye roll from the husband here*
okay so onto the pics i love above:

a) lulu dk stair runner: if i had stairs in my house, i would be putting this runner on them in a skinny second

b) i love this kitchen: it's simple but w/ the chalkboard hood cover and that ladder, it instantly transforms to perfection! and that dog is just so stinking cute!

c) ummmm, those beautiful ikat draperies and hardware have my heart melting.....i am really into simple hardware right now (i adore hardware that wraps around and doesn't have a finial)

d) upholstered console tables are just my favorite right now...i want one...i love the simple design w/ the blue linen fabric as the border.....check out these awesome ones here and here.

e) urban electric lanterns (go charleston) in this kitchen just scream beautiful to me....they are a local company that make the most amazing lights- handcrafted and they also give you the option to paint a number of their lights any BM paint color....you should totally check them out!

f) these vintage zigzag chairs from 1st dibs....need i say more?? please magically appear in my house someday....

okay, that completes this tour...i am sure i will have lots more to recuse from the trash in the near future!! on a brighter note, our new computer arrives tomorrow!!

You should get a "Passport." They are a fairly inexpensive external hard drive space that are about the size of actual passports. They just plug into the computer by USB and they are as easy as using a USB stick to save files on. Just plug it and and search your files!

Oh, those are all soooo tasty! I can completely relate to the computer drama - Ben does the SAME thing to me! :)

Just a suggestion (if it's not too late - if it is, I'm terribly sorry for bringing it up).

I have a flickr pro account and store all of my saved screenshots there. I have them organized in sets (home decor, party ideas, etc.). That way, I'm not taking up space on my hard drives. You can make them private if you don't want to give away your ideas. :)

Hi Shannon,

The mystery skirted console is from an ancient issue of Arch Digest I posted about in May:

That chalkboard/ladder kitchen is so charming! Of course I may love it so much because of the adorable heart sketch depicted! haha

Blueprint Bliss said...

Great images. Love all of them.

My husband is the same way... doesn't understand all of the saved images on the computer. And always complains that Photoshop and Illustrator make our computer so slow... Oh well!

I have had to clean house on occasion too. Right now I have put all my inspiration photos in one file and then I put them on my Home Files blog.

Sign me up for that white kitchen! The white tile sparkling in the back is to die for. I love your blog and haven't posted but figured I should today.

That runner is fab!! I'd love it in blue w/white for the stairs to the basement.

Husbands...
When my hubby threatens to clean up the computer, I threaten to go clean up his work bench in the garage. That usually ends the discussion for the time being! :)
Thanks for sharing the photos with us---all good stuff!

Lauren said...

hjahahhahah too funny

Anonymous said...

How about tell hubby to mind his own business! C' mon girls what year is it? Hate to be sarcastic but just how many of these hubby's has just a few too many problems with online porn??? maybe they should just clean up their own stuff and leave your's ALONE!

Blair said...

You should see my desktop! It is just full of images that I know will be just perfect for a post one day:) Love the runner in that top photo.

Porchlight Interiors said...

That's so funny. My husband says the same thing to me. They just don't understand what our saved pictures mean to us. You never know when you are going to need them for inspiration.
