Cafe Au Lait Bowls and More

Happy Friday, friends! I've been very blessed to not have to work much on Fridays this summer, which means some serious free-time I'm not used to. Today I got to go to lunch with my hubby, hit up Williams-Sonoma with gift cards we had, go antiquing and take a few pics for the blog. Next up, pedicures for my sister's birthday! What more could a girl ask for?!

Well, I knew for my trip to Williams-Sonoma I must definitely pick up some white cafe au lait bowls. I've been wanting some forever and ever, because they're gorgeous and useful at the same time (my fave combo).

Plus, we really need cereal bowls, as the ones that came with our dish sets are really shallow and just not quite right for most things you would eat from a bowl.

Annnyway, I picked up 8 lovely little au laits and am having so much fun with them in my kitchen. I know we'll use them daily for years and years to come.

I also popped in one of my favorite local vintage/antiques shops and found this awesomely chippy door for only $28!

I've been looking for something like this to add some height and interest to our tiny living room, and this fit the bill perfectly, for a very reasonable price. It desperately needs to be sealed to keep the paint from flaking, but for now it's just fine leaning against the wall. (Sorry for the not-so-pretty pictures, but our living room isn't quite photo-worthy yet. Hopefully that's coming soon!)

And one more thing ... after months of forcing myself to stay away from Pinterest in the interest of good wedding planning time management, I've finally started pinning! You can follow me here if you'd like. And just like everyone says ... I'm addicted : )

Have a great weekend everyone and enjoy the sunshine!

  1. I've seen more and more of these sweet little bowls out in blogland, and I just love them! They would make great cereal bowls or little serving bowls. I'll be looking for some at a local flea market this weekend! Love your door, too! Looks GREAT there! :)
