There was some ukulele playing...
Lots of yummy lunch and dinner outings!
And toes in the ocean time (little man was a bit unnerved by a few huge crashing waves!).

pillows with contrast piping. I would get the Euro size.
rhino from Indy Plush has stolen my heart.
enamelware in grey and white instead of traditional black and white. Couldn't be more perfect.
I'd wrap it all up in this awesome paper I found on Etsy.
Have a festive weekend!

Loving all of these - perfect for the Modern Cottage tree! This fabric snowflake design is the perfect simple/organic/rustic combo. I also love this set in the shop, which would be great if we get a mini tree for the little guy's room.....This tree at Terrain is exactly what I am picturing - I'm sure we can find something locally and we have more vintage buckets than we know what to do with :) Plus, it would be fun to plant it together after the holiday is over.
I also think these handmade walnut ornaments are so pretty. I love the wood and the subtle metallic paint. Very understated modern.
And H&M never disappoints with great style and even better prices, like this set for $4.95.

But on to the holiday goodies! These are the things that have caught my eye so far, and I wanted to share, since all of them would fit into a Modern Cotttage quite nicely. Above is a 9-piece "Tree Farm" from Terrain. They are a mere 4" tall and I love the idea of a grouping of uniform trees as well as the chartreuse-y color. They also had me straight away just with the packaging.
This little cloud ornament is impossibly sweet - so simple and pure. I love the stamped letters. Ordered one of these for the little guy. It's just that great.
artwork from Etsy has a great vintage feel. It would be pretty and modern in an oversized frame with a thick white mat.
lights - love the detail. They really feel magical, and kind of modern/vintage at the same time.
I realize we have a little way to go before Christmas, but this year I'm starting early. Even husband is on board, asking over the weekend "Should we take down the bats and put up Christmas lights?" I am a lucky girl :)

plant a couple months ago, it was never the same. Dirt spilled all over the carpet and it seems our poor plant was traumatized, even after we tried to put it all back together. It had actually lasted quite a long time, and loved its sunny spot in the upstairs hallway. Really a poor parental decision I suppose to have left it precariously on a low bench in our bedroom but we'd had to move it out of the way for the painters. In any event, we found a lovely new plant - a variety I've never seen before - which has very cool tones of light and medium green, and delicate yet modern shaped leaves (fancy plant name: polypodium aureum). Now, we just have to plant him!
Oh, and you might notice the white subway tile and carrara - YES we finally gave that temporary chalkboard backsplash and black hole of a counter top (it was Uba Tuba granite if you are familiar) the boot! We hope to have some before and afters posted soon :)
