how to style a bart cart; kelly golightly's house

Fall always makes me want to nest. You too? Here are a few small vignettes around our apartment that I snapped today that are making me smile. It’s really the little things, isn’t it?

Beautiful roses, given to me by the lovely people at Glade for hosting the Emmy’s viewing party, sprucing up my vintage bar cart.


Striped straws make any drink more fun, don’t you think, even if they do get soggy.

Audrey, my new Prada glasses I couldn’t resist getting after hosting an event at ILORI, on a favorite cake plate (that I just knocked off of the table and broke as I typed this — thankfully there are more at World Market — oy!) and a lion-adorned clutch from Nila Anthony that came as a surprise in the mail yesterday (and which I will probably accidentally spill red wine on tonight).


This little piggy…and some lovely handwritten notes I received this week.


Snail mail is the best, isn’t it?


Do you have any favorite little vignettes, moments or pieces around your house that make you smile?

    So sad about the cake plate. I look forward to a World Market trip soon to replace it.

    I suggest only white wine tonight. 🙂
