Instagram Love: Vicki Archer's London Flat

I'm a huge fan of Vicki Archer, her blog, and most recently, her delicious images on instagram.  I love to follow her back and forth between her beautiful homes in Provence and London.   I mean,  isn't this just the quintessential London townhouse in every way? Gorgeous moldings, plump down-filled cushions, books, interesting accents - I could go on and on.

Vicki has already written two beautiful books on her French Life. Now I'm hoping she'll decide to treat us to another book - her Life in London!

Long Lasting Winter Bouquet

Here's what my flowers looked like after 8 days - not bad for a $14.99 bouquet from Whole Foods, including a simple glass vase I'll definitely use again.  In the end, the bouquet made it 11 days before it started to look too faded.  My favorite bits are the thistles (assuming that's what they are?) and the mini-cabbage.

Finally Found It!

Years ago I purchased this doormat from the now defunct Martha Stewart Living catalog. When the catalog was closing, I bought one more on sale and later on regretted not buying a few more. They said the pattern was based on a sea cucumber.  I've always wanted two more for other entryways to our house and finally found something so very close to the original!

Not exact but close enough!    Have you even been looking for something and then finally find it years later?
