Hope you all had a great weekend. This is a photo that Doug took from our deck the other evening - the light is so pretty - thought you might like a little glimpse into our neck of the woods.

I bought this mask at our local Wednesday market this week. I paid $4 for it. I think it's fabulous. I understand that it's an Okame mask. She is the female half of a traditional japanese Kyogen theatre pair. She traditionally has very chubby cheeks and laughing eyes. I'd love to know more about my mask if you know anything. It appears to be quite old and very nicely painted.

You have got to love this! How could you not? I know nothing about this fab light fixture because the person who originally pinned it didn't link back to the original post (which is very important.) So feel free to tell me what you know and I'll fill in the blanks. Update: the fixture is by Scabetti. Thanks Artfullife and Theresa!

I adore this. So simple and so interesting and unique. It's by Jamaica Edgell and I spotted it at Apartment Therapy.

These pretty pumpkins are from Alisa Burke - fabulous! I used to think I was crafty but these kind of tutorials blow me away - the imagination of some people is staggering isn't it?

This is so cute and reminds me of a money bank we had when we were kids that sat on the mantlepiece in the breakfast room - I wonder what happened to that. This piece is a cookie jar - and I laughed at a reviewer who wrote that it arrived with a warning not to use it for food - huh?

I'm drooling over this vintage inspired dinnerware at Anthropologie - it's really exquisite.

Uh oh, flash back time! I clearly remember these from the 70s - funny, I actually quite like them all over again! From here.

Fabulous shards of design spotted here.

I'd like to show you some jewelry that I've spotted recently. The first 2 are form this Pinterest board - so pretty . . .

This last piece is stunning - from BMLDN. Earrings to match.
