Park City Shopping

This last weekend my husband and I went up to Park City for a getaway.  I visited one of my favorite home furniture/decor stores while there - Sticks and Stones.  Every time I go in, something cool catches my eye.  Here were my 2 favorites this trip:

This awesome coffee table - someone could definitely dIY it!

And these GORGEOUS cowhide chevron stools (are you drooling!).  
If I remember right they were about $200 each.

I would have been very tempted, but I have nowhere to put any of these items - Maybe you do?!

A couple fun Accessories

I picked up this gold angel wing bowl at Target the other day for $25.  It's a great addition to my coffee table - I love it!

 I also visited a cute new store on Main Street in Kaysville, Utah - "To Market."
It has all sorts of cute and unique accessories along with larger pieces of furniture that have been painted and antiqued.  I grabbed this Gold Arrow for $23.

Have you jumped on the bandwagon and started adding gold or brass to your home decor?

Kitchen Update: Marble Mosaic Backsplash

After 4 years I decided it was time to commit to a backsplash!
I am still in love with my laminate countertops (when we picked them out we were nervous and thought we might end up replacing them).  I am sticking with them- so I got a backsplash that would tie it all together.



Rather than just continuing the "backslash line" on this wall I decided to take it all the way up to the ceiling.  It didn't require much tile to go to the top but now gives the illusions that there is a full wall of tile behind the cabinets (which I like!).

After doing much searching and debating I went with this tile: Venato Carrera Polished 1x2" brick Marble tile from the Builder Depot.  I liked this brighter white tile compared to their "grayer" Bianco line.  I also liked the quality of this tile over what I found on Amazon and from Home Depot.
If you are in the market for marble tile - this is a great quality product for a great price!
