Show of hands!
Who, like me, subscribes to Elle Decor magazine?
I’m not always a yooge fan, but each issue always contains 1 or 2 good houses,
like this one owned by this adorable family:
Check out those cool glasses frames on the guy!
Coincidentally, we went frames shopping for G.O. yesterday!
That was conflict free. Not.
But stay tuned — I really like the frames I insisted that he get.
Meanwhile, I digress.
Let’s go back to inside this house in Elle Decor:
Can I get a yay or nay for that espalier wallpaper?
I LOVE IT!
Espalier is a Frenchie word for training a tree to grow horizontally,
usually on a wall or a fence.
My plans include our having an espaliered tree in our yard.
Back to the Elle Decor house.
Check out yet more botanical happiness:
Our Elle Decor family has this very print of alium flowers!
Theirs is hanging on the wall above their freestanding tub.
This photo above, however, is from the Shabby Creek Cottage blog.
In closing, we went to IKEA the other day,
+ they had artificial alium blooms for sale, @ $8-ish.
Did you get some, Kay? — I hear you asking?
Sadly, no. I feared G.O. would get a little cranky.
He doesn’t understand!
.No worries, though — look what I found on etsy!
These silkies look a lot better than the plastic ones from IKEA.

I think it’s high time I make a morale boosting purchase.
