I am in love with all of these things from west elm!
Christmas is coming up everyone!
I NEED this duvet. I have wanted a nice fluffy comforter to go with my new quilt on our bed. This is similar to the one at Anthropologie but only $120 instead of $300+. I will buy this with christmas money if I don't get it... hahaha

I love glass bottles and these antiqued ones are awesome! I especially love the mint green one and the dark green ones.

 These little owl ornaments are too cute.

I forget that I don't have a Christmas tree skirt every year. My mom gave me her old one but it doesn't fit our tree stand. I actually really like this faux fur one. I think it would be super simple to make too...

I think this garland is pretty. I saw these branches with little silver leaves on them at this little shop called Shore Gallery. I really wanted them to put in a glass cylinder for the holidays but they were $65 a bunch! Bummer. I figured I could make my own with paint and normal leafy branches but I have yet to find the right thing.

Since we got new kitty he is enjoying scratching up our couches. We've tried the little claw covers and he chews them off. For whatever reason our other cats don't scratch the furniture much. So our couches are covered with blankets galore and even with 3 throws on one the other is still bare. Plus the blankets don't match the room so it looks stupid. These faux fur blankets look awesome though and I desperately want one! Like the grey. Or really any. SO COZY!

West elm also has a ton of awesome pillow covers....and guess what I have like 7 pillows that need covers. I know if Zach reads this he will say WE DON'T NEED MORE PILLOWS OR GLASS BOTTLES! But these are just so nice and sophisticated! Plus since our house all has a somewhat similar color scheme things like pillows are interchangeable between rooms. Its always nice to be able to shuffle things around.

I adore this last pillow but I think the kitties may like it as much as me. Doesn't stop me from wanting it!

I am also in need of a fresh batch of tights, and if you know me you know I pretty much wear tights daily. I prefer dresses and tights to jeans any day. Most of my favorite tights have gotten life crippling snags which turn into giant holes and runs. So most of my favorites have recently met the trash. :( So depressing every time it happens, but trust me that I got their use out of them. Minus one that I got last Christmas which I somehow managed to put a giant hole in the first time I was putting them on. Now that was sad.

Anyways I'm just dreaming about how beautiful my house would be with these wonderful things in it! And how beautiful I would be in those tights! Just kidding.
