Out sick and West Elm

I've been out sick with a fever and the aches for the last few days :/  Fortunately it was mostly over a weekend so Zac was here to watch the kids, then when he had to head to work on, my wonderful mom took over kiddo duty.

I'm not a very good sick person.  I hate sitting around especially when I'd planned to vacuum the house and clean the bathrooms on Saturday - not be sick.  I let myself be lazy for an hour, then I told Zac I needed to get the house clean - then I'd lay around (he helped, of course).  When that was done, I let myself moan and groan for another hour before heading off to Home Depot, Michaels and Target.  Meanwhile, Zac's eyes are looking like they're going to get stuck in the back of his head from all that eye rollin' headed in my direction.  He doesn't bother telling me to sit down anymore.  He says I'm too headstrong.  And I am.  Sunday, I woke up feeling worse.  Luckily by then I'd gotten into the groove of being sick and let myself shuffle around moaning and groaning about how awful I felt.  Essentially, I reverted to the whining antics of my three year old.

While I was laying around, I picked up the new West Elm catalogue and perused it for while.  Here are some of my favorites from their new arrivals:

papier-mâché animal sculpture, large antlers

portico mirror

horse bookends

turned-leg dhurrie ottoman

everett kantha chair

log vases

nature sun print dessert plates

naturalist bowls

Which are your West Elm favorites?


  1. Love the horse bookends and that Ottoman. West Elm always has some fun pieces. Hope you are feeling better, Natty!

  2. Love the animal heads :) I hope your feeling better, I suck at being sick too!

  3. You sound like me. I don't do sick very well either. Take time to get better though. Nice pieces. Thanks for sharing.
