on my radar this holiday season

1. My chunky pearls broke over Thanksgiving (at a bar, none the less, so the pearls scattered everywhere – garnered a bit of attention from the surrounding guys scrambling to help me pick them up, I actually thought that was very sweet. It’s time for a new set. This particular one is from Lauren Elan

2. A bit predictable? Yes. but I’ve always wanted a white grey hound statue for my home! This cutie is available through Pieces!

– Bee from Atlantic-Pacific wears them well.
– I love boxwood – they don’t fair so well in Boston during this time of year though!

Estate Eclectic

How amazing is this dragon? You had better snap it up before I do!
I’m so thrilled to share the latest “fabulous home accessory and pillow boutique” to launch on Etsy with you. My amazingly talented friend Betsy began the shop with like minded, design aficionados like yourselves in mind. She has an amazing eye, {you should see her home}, and background. You’ll find a carefully curated collection of flea market and vintage finds on her site. I promise you’ll love her taste and ever evolving boutique Estate Eclectic and her design ideas on her aptly named blog. Below is a small sampling from her boutique. Happy Shopping!

 Betsy’s bio:

“For as long as I can remember, I have loved art and interiors and had an eye for objects. I’ve spent the past 10+ years working in the art world, first at Christie’s in New York City, followed by two years at a gallery while earning a MA in Art History, and most recently at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston for 5+ years. Today (two babies later!), I’m thrilled to open Estate Eclectic and offer select finds for the home. For me, it doesn’t get any better than scouring flea markets, antique stores, and estate sales for that diamond in the rough. I only buy what I love and I hope you find things to love here as well. Cheers!”

I’ve always had an affinity for furry, four legged creatures. I don’t own a farm, so I opt to decorate with my finds here and there, around my home.
Simply add some greens or berries to your year round or holiday collection for a festive flair!!
