Start Somewhere {Simple Coffee Table Vignette}

Thursday, July 3, 2014


When it comes to the whirlwind of unpacking boxes with stuff literally everywhere, you just have to start somewhere. I started with our coffee table, or atleast half of it. I put it in its spot, even though our couch and rug aren't here yet, and the books for the other side of it are still in a box. But even just that one little spot being finished made me breath a happy sigh of relief.


We've been collecting coasters from all over the world since our honeymoon, the vase was a $5 find in Okinawa, the candle was on sale at Anthro and I found the gold tray at Home Goods last week.


This pretty bench was my $12.99 steal from Target!


Happy Independence Day weekend! We are thrilled to be in our country to celebrate it this year.

  1. So beautiful! We'll be leaving Sicily in less than 2 weeks and setting up house in Coronado, CA, in about a month. I know it will be crazy for awhile, but I can't wait to set up corners of beauty when we get there!

    1. ahhh I still to this day cannot believe you guys got to live in Sicily. I wish I could have visited you!! Too bad you won't be there when we're in Croatia - Sicily is high on our list of where we want to go. I hope your move goes smoothly and you love being back in the States! Are you moving to CA permanently?
