a birthday gift

my husband, jonathan, took me to some of our favorite spots 
in orange county for my birthday.

one of those spots is this amazing store in 
newport coast called 'juxtaposition'.
restoration hardware meets anthropologie. the storefront 
is gorgeous & i can only imagine the creativity that 
happens in their studio. 'juxtaposition' is a store owned 
by a couple who travel throughout the world & find treasures. 
they bring pieces back & sell them here in southern 
california (& beyond, of course).

i LOVE going into this store for inspiration. 

via their website

don't you want to buy everything in the store? yes please.

well, for my birthday 
(& with my birthday money, thanks family!)
we bought an amazing metal basket that i am using 
as a centerpiece on our dining room table.

it is seriously one of my favorite pieces 
in our living room right now.

here are some photos of the tablescape 
(basically, an artistic way of saying a centerpiece) 
i did this past week.
included in it is, of course, my birthday basket.

i had so much fun being inspired with a garden theme. 
it seems to be a major theme in my life right now.

stay tuned for my weekly tuesday post 'the poor man's gard[en]'
