That Little Devil On My Shoulder...

would you look at those mirrors???!!!
i know!
and here i am...caught unprepared...my smelling salts
and fainting couch so far out of reach that i may just
end up in a heap on the floor! but if i was on the floor
next to those mirrors...somehow i know everything
would be a-ok!

so, tripped and fell into the clutches of a site called
AN ANGEL AT MY TABLE that is just brimming with so
many lust-worthy delights that i kept
thinking that the word "devil" really should be in its name...
because nearly every item could cause you to stumble!
{i'll take any one...or all of those birdie abodes, thank you!}

it's a watering can...that looks like a teapot!
i know!
and i don't even have any plants...or drink much tea
unless it's with a nyquil chaser during flu season!
and yet...i want it!

as if the fabric isn't fab enough!
the pink dingle-balls...stop it!!!!!

i could only toss unused tissues in this...
i couldn't bare to make it icky!

and i am just a sucker for anything union jacky!
{God save the queen!}

wow! not sure if i could use it...for real...
the thought of used tissues, burst ketchup packets,
smashed Smarties & ibuprofen stuck to pennies,
last months bills, a flashlight & 3 books within its
beauteous depths...no, no nanette!

i just want to frame this picture!

if you need a votive...it really should look like this!

jingle bells, hearts & wreaths...
3 great things that go great together!!!
{what commercial is the from???}

mini chandies!
i could tack one of these above my kitchen sink and pretend...

now, pots like this i have seen a lot...
but with that added edging? not!!!

can you have too much candle lit mercury glass? i think not!

vintage-y velvety blooms!
on your sweater...
at your waist...
in your hair...
{up high...where your cats cats use them as a toy!! ;}

this combination of mirror and bird cage...

and these little baubles...i want to try and copy!
i am in a frenzy of inspiration...how hard can it be?
{i'll get back to you on that one! ;}

now, never let it be said that i am trying to lead you astray...
fear not, little lambs! these sorts of sinful catalogs and websites
have been sent to test us...fire-y trials that we can stand fast
against...and then copy everything as best we can!!!
which is not to say that if i won the lottery i wouldn't buy
everything in this post so fast it would make your head spin! ;}

gorgeous photography!
beautiful wares!
oodles of inspiration!
AN ANGEL AT MY TABLE ...is a little bit of heaven!
