Like A Picture

You’re getting this week’s Like A Picture early because I said so. You’ll take it and you’ll like it. I found this one sitting on my computer, all jazzed and ready to go. Who knows when I made it, it’s a mystery. I must have been on a hot streak and figured I was doing myself a favor in prepping early. Instead, all it accomplished was me promptly forgetting about it until last night. Oops. At least I know now that my powers of internet-scouring work in reverse, too; I got to track down the blanket and candle sources from memory. Thankfully, I have a mind like a steel trap and my dedication to this series is strong. And weird.

1. Blanket / 2. Candle / 3. Picture

Does it even need to be said that I found that picture from here? I love the slate color and the texture of the blanket, it picks up the folds of the statue perfectly. That candle┬áis a scent from Capri Blue I’ve never smelled before (I’m a Volcano girl, myself) but I love the glass jar. My friend Anna asked me the other day, “Why is it always a blanket and a candle?” Fair question, but the short answer is that I’m a hoarder of both, and my addiction to throw blankets is sustained because Fitz keeps eating through all of them.

      1. Pissing my pants with laughter :) The venus de milo has a head!!! No arms though. Fat lot of use she was to anyone. What kind of crappy statue wouldn’t have a head or arms either? xx

          1. is it lame that i fully intend to spend my barneys gift card on a diptyque candle?! i totally agree about the typography, and i can’t wait to store my makeup brushes in it once i finish burning it ;) now i just have to pick the scent!

            1. That’s not lame at all! That’s my intent, too, once mine is all used up. I bought Rosamundi, it’s floral and rich and incredible. I’d recommend it if you can’t decide on a scent! It’s limited edition and the jar is more decorative than the regular ones, if that sways you :)

            1. I don’t know why I find that so funny but I’m sitting here with tears streaming down my face again. Like thanksgiving and the flamingos. You are so brilliant!

              1. If by “brilliant” you mean totally stupid, then yes. What American gets the date of Thanksgiving wrong? Who forgets what flamingoes are? Ugh. I swear, I’m actually intelligent in real life. xo

  1. And the one that does have a head doesn’t have a nose! I love the shades of gray…I can’t believe I just wrote that…but that particular shade of gray does NOT conjure up Capri Blue for me. That candle looks more like, oh, I don’t know, Nantucket Rain or somesuch.

    1. See, gray is good! Gray is my favorite color, believe it or not. I love the hues in that photo, the grays almost look blue! I’m with you, Capri Blue seems more summery and beachy to me than moody gray museum :)

    1. Diptyque! I have the Rosamundi scent right now (just haven’t figured out how to work it into one of these yet!) but love them all so much. I think it’s the typography on the glass. Your dogs names are so adorable! Clementine and Noodle! xoxo

  2. I don’t know which I like better – the post or the banter that follows. Ah, this reminds me of the good ol’ days when you and Bird would go at it like sisters. ;) I’m definitely more of a blue-gray fan, rather than green-gray or purple-gray. So, the above looks all good to me.
    I wondering if you pulled the trigger on the CB2 chair and ottoman…That throw and candle would complement the chair very nicely.
    PS~I just used one of your PS tutorials for something. I tell you, it’s the gift that keeps on giving. ;)

    1. We used to go at it?? I hope no one assumed we were getting contentious! It’s all in good spirit, definitely light-hearted. I wouldn’t mind having Bird as a sister :)
      Blue-gray is my favorite shade, too. Grays can go so many different ways, can’t they? I haven’t bought the chair/ottoman set (yet!) because I’m still trying to rationalize it. But I love your encouragement! Thanks, T xo
      LOVE that you used one of my tutorials! That makes me so happy, you have no idea.

      1. Oh T you are so right, we’ve all got so serious lately haven’t we? What happened to fun blogging, trying to make people laugh? :(
        Erin you’d be awesome as a sister. Older. Obvs.

  3. Gray is one of my favorite colors, you totally nailed it with this post! I need to have the candle and this one too. It was a suggestion on the Anthropologie website. They knew I might like it…damn I’m going to load up my shopping cart ;)
