~Crate & Barrel Viv 20 oz Big Red wine glass

In search of a new set of wine glasses, Inspired by Charm’s Michael Wurm suggested I take a look at Crate & Barrel’s. Not only was I not disappointed, I saved money. Having purchased wine glasses from C&B more than 10 years ago, I was comforted by the fact that they carry the same styles year after year. Why is this important? To put it bluntly, I can be klutzy in the kitchen and have broken my fair share of glasses. For less than $5 a glass, these quality glasses are nearly identical to the glasses used at wineries and can be used to serve white or red wine.

A chic neutral tone table lamp, West Elm’s Orb has been reduced from $129 to $89. With a glass base and linen shade, the textures and ability to work in a variety of decors is what initially grabbed my attention. I have to say, I adore the full, circular base and could see a pair in a bedroom or the living room due to their versatility.

  1. I thought I was going to be annoyed when I saw the boot prices, but it’s OK, I paid just in the middle of those figures (in GBP) from my first pair of Hunter Wellingtons in matt blue. I had a walk on the beach in them and loved being warm and dry in spite of the several streams we crossed. Took me ages to find a shop that stocked them (and wasn’t sold out) but I’m going to enjoy these boots, I’m sure.
