why west elm stole my heart.

for the longest time, i kept pushing back on registering at west elm. not for any other reason other than it didn't fit into my schedule to take the time. recently the other day, i realized that you could create your registry online and just add items to the registry. well duh! so i found some amazing, drool worthy pieces for the home.

registering is like pinterest for weddings! it's like you pin it and it magically shows up at your doorstep from the kindness of a wedding guest. lee and i are beyond thrilled (and extremely thankful) for our upcoming showers in may & june so peek below at some west elm goodies.

who says brass can't make a comeback? okay, i actually i totally agree because i hate brass. but for some reason this just works with this cart. i'll just pretend it's gold. i need this in my dining room asap. 

we've been looking for some cool lamps for our nightstands in the bedroom and this just screams perfect. i've always been a fan of a funky shade, but i really like the cool base of this lamp with the rustic shade. this comes in yellow as well. 

these things are just cool. our living room has tons of royal blue so having these puppies sit on our end tables would be perfect. sometimes i forget how simple little quirky touches of decor - something as simple as coasters - can add to a room. and i love how they don't match! 

i have died and gone to heaven with these. i love the different look gold flatware brings to the table. haha get it? i'm lame. i think it's important to have a good silver set as well which is why we registered for them at crate & barrel (which i'm also in love with), but these gold ones just make me happy as well. what do you think about this new trend? i haven't seen it much until here recently. 

we have been using inexpensive measuring spoons since we moved in. and not that there is anything wrong with inexpensive! they get the job done. but lee and i love to cook and these copper ones are so cute. can measuring spoons be cute? i don't know for sure, but i want these babies in my kitchen.

i love these! they come in different prints, colors, and patterns too and are just so festive! how cute would this be at our stock the bar party serving up some dip with chips on the side? the blue pattern is also a favorite of mine too. 

you can't go wrong with these. we have one on our breakfast nook table right now and love it. i love the more rustic look to this one as we would probably display it on a coffee table with flowers, books, etc as decor. west elm also has these beautiful color lacquer trays i have on the registry list too. the coral is the one i'm lusting over. 

we're also registered at crate and barrel, like i mentioned, and target. i wanted to give our wedding guests many options to pick. of course we registered for normal things like towels, bedding, and other kitchen stuff as well. those are necessities for any registry and these are just ones that caught my eye. which are your favs?
