Apparently, the good people at Anthropologie do not find stolen bar coasters appropriate for protecting their precious wooden tables from water damage. Well fine, Anthropologie, I’ll look at your marble coasters painted with spines of vintage books. Okay, I’ll even like them a little. Alright, I want them.  But there is NO WAY you’re getting forty dollars from me for four coasters. Marble or not, that’s insane. They are super cute though….

Oh, Restoration Hardware. How I love your “Stinking Rich Hamptonite” aesthetic, and dream about being able to move into one of your showrooms.

Besides, I’d seen a tutorial on Pinterest that I was dying to try, and for a grand total of ONE dollar, I thought I’d give this a shot.

Sometimes, don’t you wish you could just move into a magazine photo? I want that WHOLE living area to be mine. But especially that awesome vintage Paris street map on the wall. The map itself is so unique, with cherubs and so many flourishes that add to the specialness. But then they’ve broken it up and mounted each piece in a gold leaf frame. I love everything about it, except for the $999.00 price tag.
