We returned home from our trip yesterday, exhausted, but glad to be home. I gave in to the temptation to go to bed early, which resulted in a 2am wake time. I'll have to do better tonight.

Coming home means I have to go back to work, of course. Luckily, I got plenty of inspiration in London to continue writing my novel.

That said, I'm feeling very much like I want to nest today and it has resulted in a web search for some home decor. It's more or less fantasy decor in that I'm really not in the mood to spend any money. However, there's a few things I'd like to put on my wish list:

White Resin Parrots


I really, really want these. I'll have to stalk them for awhile to see if they go on sale.

Curved Upholstered Chair



I have the perfect place for one of these chairs. Blue is my favorite, but any of them would do.

Cellula Chandelier 


Let's face it. The chances of a piece like this ever entering my home is remote, for a few reasons. First, it's pretty damned expensive. I don't think I could drop that kind of cash on a light. Second, it would require a total re-do of my decor, thus adding to the expense of the already pricey chandelier. Third, Mick would hate it.

Still, I do think it's rather grand.

Thanks for indulging me.

    I’m in a nesting mood too. I’ve just about decided to get rid of the flowered couch in the living room – not my style at all anymore. I want to get two ultra-comfortable yet chic looking chairs instead, for reading and drinking a glass of wine with Rich. Just absolutely in love with Young House Love – I think they have such great design sense!

    I love the chairs and light. Not soo keen on the parrots though. The light would be my #1 pick, but totally agree with you about then needing to re-do everything else in the room as well. Always the problem with something beautiful and new in the house.
    Glad you made it back safe!
