Umbrella, -ella, -ella, -ella...

Yesterday I was helping out some friends position artwork and family photos for hanging and of course I told them about the "rule" of hanging things around 54" to 56" from floor to center of frame.

But today I just totally broke that rule!

My partner's dresser is pretty high, 56". So the anniversary present I wanted to hang above had to go pretty high, too. From our bed, it looks pretty good. And I repositioned a few accessories to complement the new piece. Check it out:

I really like the piece--it has a Yoshitomo Nara vibe to it, but more cheerful. And a little less sinister.

Because when the sun shines we'll shine together...

It's been a couple of weeks, but this weekend I was busy celebrating my wedding anniversary even though it's not officially till this week (my friends made sure I never forgot the exact date with a gift from my bachelor party...;-)

Anyhow, one of the gifts from my partner was this pastel painting/drawing we spied (and admired) together from Stuff on Valencia Street. It reminded us of our trip to Japan several years ago.

I'll show you how it looks hung up in our bedroom very soon!

All the small things...

It's been a while, but I'm trying to get back on track, especially after the long weekend!

Recent finds:

The most adorable leather coin box (in the shape of an owl!) from Community Thrift.

A tiny fish box from One Kings Lane.
And here's a little Separated At Birth comparison:

One of my favorite prints from Scalamandre is available as ready-made pillows. I thought they would be ridiculously expensive, but they're not!
And if you wanted to mix it up with a companion pillow, Dwell Studio has their homage:
