There is nothing quite like the perfect arm chair in a living space. And of course, since I’m partial to French style in general, I just adore a good French chair! Bergère chairs are versatile, classic, and comfortable (which not all armchairs are).
Happy Thursday friends, and not just any Thursday! Today is the first day of Early Access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! That means if you are a Nordstrom card holder, you can shop the sale today, 8 days before the general public!
Normally I’m not a huge sale person when it comes to fashion. I don’t line up for warehouse sales, or run to the Zara sale when it comes (even though I adore that store). But the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is truly a one-of-a-kind event. This sale is the only sale I’ve heard of that marks down things that are new! That’s right, brand-new-for-fall items at super-sale prices! You don’t have to wait to get that item you love, so that by the time it finally goes on sale, the season is almost over. You can buy your new fall items, at a discount, and wear them first thing in the fall!! How great is that?!
Frasier Fir by Thymes is exactly like it sounds; with a “just cut forest fragrance.” Soy-based.White Fir by Trapp is another forest-y scent. Soy-based.
This candle is a new one for me this year and is actually hand-made by a friend. Frosted Spruce by Wynn & Roo smells like fresh greenery with just a hint of citrus. Soy-based.
Antique lanterns are something I’ve been smitten with for awhile now. I first fell in love with them when this kitchen was featured in a magazine a few years ago. I didn’t even realize that they were originally French outdoor lanterns, I just knew that I loved them!
I have to admit that I have a bit of an obsession when it comes to candles! I buy a lot of them, and not always successfully. Often I like the smell, but when I get it home, it doesn’t seem to really permeate or I can barely tell it’s burning. Or even worse, it’s overpowering enough to cause a headache! And since some of them are quite pricey, it can be frustrating (I’ve thrown quite a few in the trash, I can tell you that!)
