Saturday Afternoon Special

Here’s my rainy Saturday afternoon special – random shots from around my new apartment. Happy weekend everyone!


The first and fourth wives with a "me and my helpmeet" sandwich filler



Books, glorious books!


Out and about in the front of the building


I've got to have my Euripides and Beowulf close to hand

Hey I can't work out if the thing called 'bling' is a broach or a clip, whatever it is, I love it :)

Thanks for the tip about wedges! I bought some a couple of summers ago and they were so comfy but they felt too glam' for just round by the pool so I saved them for the evening. I think I'm gonna treat myself to a pair this year :)

Aaah! Dirty Blonde...one of my top-shelf faves hahaha. I don't know why, but I've always taken pleasure in watching Courtney grow to be more and more batshit crazy. And, that copy of the Grimms complete fairy tales is fantastic! What a find!

The new place is looking great!

That Shaun of the Dead figurine is awesome...I also collect little figurines every now. My most favorite of all though...is that corgi artwork in the last photo!!!

Raining here in Miami as well ... so I'm playing with my template and I am going CRAZZYYYYY!
It seems your new place has a lot of light, I love that. That can actually be my 'deal breaker'.
That gold Clutch is fab!

Oh heaven's to BOLEYN are you kidding me?! After having a look at your bookshelves, I think you and I may be book-soul mates. No kidding. You are absolutely awesome lady.

There are so many things I love about this post. I am always so envious of your book collection. I dream of having a personal library one day. You have such a great selection of fairy tales! The stair case to your building looks like something that belongs in ancient europe. It's totally awesome. This is such a great idea for a post!

laura said...

!!! cooooolio pics of your pad, lady! I am loving the way you decorate!

Also, is that the newest edition of Heaney's Beowulf? the one with all the pretty illustrations? I went gaga when I saw it at a publisher's sale, but can never bring myself to buy a non-Old English Beowulf. I'm a snob. Oh well. hahaha.

Oh to Be a Muse said...

that scenery will be great for outfit shots, and i love how you decorated your bookshelf, Courtney!

Pamela said...

I'm trying really hard to not dislike you for your pretty new place. My husband and I are looking at property right now and we're one part excited and two parts frustrated and stressed!
