Friday Five

// New Books //
I recently burned through an Amazon credit and purchased some of the books you see below.
Little makes my coffee table happier than a stack of new reads.

The photos above came from an estate sale.  I was especially happy to score Mastering the Art of French Cooking - Volumes One and Two for $20!  

// Lo & Sons O.G. Bag //
Probably the best thing to ever grace the shoulders of an organized-obsessed girl like me.  It literally has pockets for everything.  Be on the lookout for a "What's in My Carry-On" post soon.  I'm hopping on a plane next Wednesday and this will be by my side and full of goodies.  

// Metallic Grasscloth Wallpaper //

I have a huge soft spot for grasscloth.  These metallic options are such a neat way to modernize the standard, classic look.

// Making Work More Fun //
I'm in love with this eclectic work space.

// Weekend //
My mom's teacher friends are hosting a bridal shower for me this weekend.  We've had a tailgate shower, a bridesmaids shower, another bridal shower, a couples shower... and now this one, the last bridal shower.
I feel blessed.

In preparation for the shower and for my bachelorette party next week... BLONDE!
