Who knew I was this exciting?

The guy who ever said shoe racks are no fun is just an idiot.

I don't really know if anyone said that for sure, but if they did it must be a guy.

I got a shoe rack this weekend. I know. I'm over the top in the excitement category, aren't I?

Fa put it together for me. And she helped me set it up in my closet too.

I tried to get pictures but the closet was too dark and no matter how hard I tried, it didn't come out viewable. Sorry.

I frickin' love my new shoe rack. It brings me joy and warmth in my belly.

And what was even more exciting than the shoe rack this weekend?

New silverware.

I know, someone stop me before I go over the edge.

THAT I have pictures of.

Distressed Pewter handle and a gothic detail at the end...

Heaven, I'm in heaven...

Someone catch me before I lose all control.


  1. You are SUCH a nerd! Perhaps that is why I like you so much!!

    You know...the whole birds of a feather thing? :)

  2. I love getting stuff like that, too. The silverware is gorgeous! I can go into raptures over kitchen gadgets and office supplies.

  3. That is super cool silverware. i love the pattern and the detailing. Gorgeous.

    show racks, huh... who'd a thunk it ;-) Get wild and crazy with your bad self honey.

  4. all this excitement ... i think i have to go lie down now.

  5. I'm excited with you, no, really, I am... ... ... .. .

  6. Fa put it together, huh? That's fantastic.

    Nice silverware, by the way.

  7. You are an incredibly exciting woman!;)
    It's the simple pleasures that make life exciting.....that definitely includes shoe racks and silverware.
    (And don't tell anybody, but that's how I feel when I find a pretty spoon rest for my kitchen...Very exciting!;))

  8. That's crack open a bottle of wine and talk silver! I love pretty new silverware and the silverware rack is even better. I love seeing new silverware neatly stacked in the slots. About once a month I clean the crumbs out of the rack and feel positively giddy the rest of the day. You are not alone, my friend.

  9. I would love to find something like silverware or a shoe rack to make me happy. sigh....

  10. You made me smile. I got me a shoe rack once... hubby's shoes are the only shoes on it now. Go figure that one out!!

  11. Am drooling over your silverware. So pretty and distinctive.

  12. awh JJ!

  13. Wow. That IS exciting. Watch out, you don't want to everexert yourself. ;)

    (Actually it sounds a LOT like me. It's the little things that bring me joy!)

  14. I don't get too excited about shoe racks but your silverware has me panting.


  15. BEAUTIFUL silverware! You knew I'd be all over that one, didn't you?

    That's how I feel every time I bring home new (or old, for that matter) pretties for my house. All the better for functional items!


  16. you just reminded me that I need to get some new silverware.

    And that means I get to Ikea


    There goes about 9 bazillion of my hard earned dollars

  17. LOL And I thought I was the only one that got excited over new silverware. Glad I'm not alone ;)

  18. Sounds exciting to me! I once called my mom and waxed rhapsodic about my new washing machine.

    We take our thrills where we can get 'em.

  19. hehe. You crack me up girlie!!!
