the man cave...

 This use to be Cory's room
 and now we are using it as an office.
 I love sailboats 
 and vintage kids toys I never get tired of them.
 I love this picture....I don't know where I picked it up.

This sailboat rug I picked up at Anthropologie 
12 years ago.....still loving it!
do you tend to keep things or get rid of things
I'm such a keeper
is this good or bad?

  10. I am in love with your desk!! What's the story with that?

    I think the fact that you have such an amazing collection of items means that keeping things is the way to go!! I always marvel at your photos and the incredible bits and pieces you have!!

    WHY AREN'T INTERIORS MAGAZINES LINING UP AT YOUR DOOR??

  18. How lovely. I've put a page of rooms like this into my scrapbook recently. And keeping things is surely very environmentally friendly, as long as they remain useful and used..?

  19. Beautiful!Everything!The little sandbucket reminds me of my childhood days at the beach .....so suffice to say it`s an antique!New Anthropologie shop just opened in Edinburgh which in itself is a great piece of news but the prices???!!!Sheesh!

  20. i was indeed gonna say, wonderful rug! 12 years of age, it's turned into a vintage anthropo, you clever woman!

    good or bad, keeping? looney, in my eyes, but then i am a legendary thrower-out, which means i do miss things from time to time, and that's just plain stupid of me.
    (but true, i don't wear myself down over messes, apart from removal boxes. still. oi.).
