2015 Home Wishlist

by Jamie Sanford on December 7, 2015

Holiday wishlist time! I update my Amazon Wishlist all year long, I think myself very useful for giving everyone at least 50 ideas of things I would like to receive. I am perfectly aware that not everyone wants to buy me a $2000 lens, but that’s why it is a wishlist.

Let’s focus on what is on my home wishlist for 2015.

Swanky bedding! We use quilts and not comforters – I find them so comforting now.

Fornasetti everything, at all times!

I’m pretty into Jonathan Adler stuff too.

Just mermaid things. I currently do not own a home where I can mount the weathervane but I never knew how much I wanted one until right now.

Christmas decor! We are totally minimal on decor this year because we are traveling, but I WILL have a black Christmas tree at some point. I also have a big ambition to mount a tree to the ceiling, upside down. It will happen!

What is on your home wishlist for the holidays? Share in the comments!

Instagram Roundup #32

by Jamie Sanford on March 20, 2013

Here are all of the other Instagram Roundups!

Been browsing books about design and such while waiting at the printer at the office. Naturally I photographed the J.

I received this ring from my Nana at Christmastime. It came from a friend of hers’ mother, and she knew it was right up my alley. I haven’t figured out what the stone is yet.

Coming soon to the blog will be a giant image of all of my walk-by Flatiron Building photos. I must have at least 25? This is from last week.

I hadn’t been to an estate sale in YEARS (at least 10) before last week. Naturally I took sneaky photos, and here is one of them.

60s kitchen decor.

I photographed lots of old packaging with my phone.

Went to St. Patrick’s Day Thanksgiving on Saturday night. Lots of drinking, eating, and merriment.

I am really looking forward to the How To Destroy Angels show next month.

Fortune, as always.

Agate Christmas Tree Ornaments

by Jamie Sanford on November 23, 2010

I collected rocks when I was a kid.  I don’t know how I got into it, but I had lots of books on rocks and minerals, other books on gemstone identification, and of course, a collection of rock specimens. I loved them.

I still love rocks, even though that love now is mostly represented by gemstone pendants of which I have quite a few.  This particular stone has been very hot lately, showing up in high-end jewelry in addition to random eBay shops.

What is agate, you ask? From minerals.net:

Agate is a banded, multicolored, variety of Chalcedony. It occurs in an infinite amount of colors and patterns, and no two Agates are alike. The extraordinary beauty and uniqueness of Agate is responsible for its great popularity.

Agate must be polished to bring out its full charm; unpolished specimens are dull and ugly. It usually forms in rounded nodules or knobs which must be sliced open to bring out the internal pattern hidden in the stone.

There’s some more on Wikipedia too.

So, today’s item is a set of agate slice tree ornaments.


They’re pretty, right? They are edged in 24-carat gold, so the set of 4 comes in a slightly pricey $125.  However, I see these finding their way from the tree to hanging somewhere else in your house, like on the windows or from a chandelier.

Check out the Agate Tree Ornaments on NeimanMarcus.com.

Helpful and Chic Kitchen Conversions Print

by Jamie Sanford on November 1, 2010

Today’s item is a good combination of chic and helpful.  A kitchen conversions print that would be very cute in a frame on the wall but also a quick reference for cooking and baking.


Chic, right?  I told you!

This is the 8.5 x 11 version, but other sizes are available.  The price might seem high at $24, but it is printed on high-quality paper.

Printed on Epson Fine Art Velvet Paper with archival inks and packaged in a protective cellophane sleeve inside a rigid mailer. Fine Art Velvet Paper is an archival, acid free, 100% cotton rag with a matte coating.

The kitchen conversions print from Etsy seller SweetFineDay is available for $24.
