Welcome to my home! I wanted to share a few of my current favorites for the home that make amazing gifts for you or someone you love, because they’ve brought me a lot of joy.
Okay, this pillow with my little Tate Dogovan’s face on it just melted my heart. Who knew personalized pillows could be this cute OR this high-quality?! I was beyond excited when I came across LiLiPi Custom Shaped Pillows and Cushions. You can take anything (and I mean anything,) and turn it into a custom pillow! The pillow of Tater with those big eyes gives me- and every guest we have in our home- all the feels. And the last pic of this post? It’s a pillow from my chihuahua’s birthday party….one of my favorite photos. I also managed to score a pillow in the shape of my current hero, UFC Champ Conor McGregor! Not only did I watch every single press conference he did with Mayweather this month for their upcoming boxing match, but I may or may not be betting a little money on the fight. Though the odds are heavily stacked against him to take down Mayweather, I still hold out hope for my Irish obsession to have a dramatic victory. So, ladies…if your man has a favorite athlete, why not turn it into a fun pillow as a gift? My husband has been stealing my McGregor pillow just to take selfies with it! Pillows of your sweet pets, children, vacation spot…all of them can be a perfect gift for a loved one. You can customize your pillow here, and trust me, you will LOVE the finished product. The pillows are great quality, 100% MADE IN THE USA (another awesome reason to purchase from this company!) and super comfy.
Something else I’ve obsessed over? Finding the perfect marble tray. I have a Restoration Hardware coffee table that I love, but it’s dark wood, just like our hardwood floors and our leather couch. So. Much. Brown. Which means I have been on the hunt for months for the ideal white marble tray to lighten things up and hold some of my coffee table things…magazines, flowers, candles, the remote, etc. In Dallas there is a fabulous showroom called Aria Stone Gallery, and if you can dream of something in marble that tickles your fancy, they can make it happen. Seriously. This place is like Disney World for stone lovers. You want exotic Calacatta Gold Borghini marble on your countertops? They have it. You want Bianco Quartzite Leathered for your bathroom sinks? Done. You want a gorgeous marble tray with fabulous gold handles? It’s yours. If you live in Dallas or Houston where the Aria Stone Gallery showrooms are, you can check out the gorgeous stone options for yourself. Or, you can get some craaaaazy good inspiration online by looking at their super slick portfolio that will make you want to re-do every surface in your house. Though I don’t have the $$$ for new stone all over yet, this marble tray is a little piece of luxury to remind me of things to come. Plus, I don’t lose the remote anymore!
