Holiday Wish List

I've been busy busy with holiday orders...but I did steal a few moments to put together a quick holiday wish list. A girl has to have priorities, right?

I've been wavering back and forth on Hunter boots for so I really need them? Well, obviously no, I don't. But I've decided that I would like them! High gloss black please...

with the cheetah lining!

And now that C. Wonder is open online I couldn't help but pick out a few things from their fun site. Love these Ikat coffee mugs.

And this elephant plate.

which would look fantastic on this beautiful bar cart from Society Social. Loving the faux python in stone.

And while I'm making a list, I might as well add in the iPad2! I have the iPad1 and love it, but the upgrade is calling my name. Question is, when does the iPad3 come out? Should I just wait?

So what's on your holiday list?

C. Wonder

Have you read the latest issue of Lonny Mag yet? I had a chance to browse through it over the weekend and my favorite part was definitely my discovery of C. Wonder. Where have I been?

WOW. Seriously, wow. I want to go live in that store. The colors, the patterns! Brought to us by Chris Burch (Tory's ex) to me this screams a mix of Tory Burch, Kate Spade and J Crew. Clothing, accessories and home decor. My kinda place. And the best part? The average item in the store is priced under $40.

Here are a few of my favorites from their product line.

Since a trip to NYC doesn't seem to be in my immediate future, I am happy to hear that C. Wonder will be launching an online store for the Holidays. Which means that's gotta be soon, right? Yay!!

Something is growing....

and it's my belly...AGAIN. Yep, that's right, we're so excited to say that baby #3 is on it's way!

I'm 16 weeks and feeling great. I'm getting out of that first trimester haze...luckily I haven't had any morning sickness but I was super tired. Well, I still am really, but at least I'm able to stay up past 8pm! So thanks to everyone for your patience with my lack of posts. We're thrilled and blessed to be adding to our family!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Christmas is already going strong in the Pretty Smitten office! We're so excited to have photo cards available this year. We incorporated our signature rugby stripe and Swarovski crystals for a very unique, modern and fun look.

Coordinating return labels and mailing labels can also be created.

We've also introduced a new design...our simple and sweet stripe border. Found in photo cards, and gift stickers, and more!

Our Home & Accessories collection is looking pretty festive too. We love adding a little Holiday cheer to our lucite trays...

and melamine plates.

And looking for a great gift option? How about a Pretty Smitten gift certificate! We offer certificates for 'design your own' lucite trays, iPhone cases, melamine products and more. These can be sent in a pretty boxed package, or electronically for those last minute gifts!

Are you humming a Christmas song yet?

A special post from Arcadian Lighting...

Thanks to everyone for their patience with my lack of posts! I've been a busy bee getting Pretty Smitten Holiday all ready to shop will fully re-open next week so stay tuned! In the meantime, here's a special post from Arcadian Lighting. Enjoy!!


Hi all! I'm Jennifer and I write for†Arcadian Lighting, a site that chronicles the work of top interior designers and home decor trends around the world.†I've been writing about home decor since graduating university and have loved it ever since. I'm addicted to patterned fabrics, Jonathan Adler, chaise lounges, old doors, milk glass jars, antiques, and chandeliers. There's no shortage of inspiring posts on Pretty Smitten - I think Elizabeth and I would be great friends because she and I love the same beautiful things! One of my faves: kid's table lamps. Thanks for letting me share Elizabeth!

One of the sweetest decor accessories in a little one's bedroom is an adorable table lamp. In whimsical shapes and colors, with polka-dot shades and lovely lace too, kid's bedside light fixtures are both functional and decorative. Here are eight that are swoon-worthy.

A nursery with a delicate miniature table lamp provides soft light at a changing table. The muted pastels are also ideal for a soothing baby room.

Princess Pretty

Children's Lamps


With white as far as the eye can see, the beautiful table lamp, with a white shade trimmed in light pink and blue ribbon, breaks up the starkness of the space. The opulent ceiling fixture makes this nursery fit for a princess.

Little boys with pilot dreams will love this plane-inspired table lamp, with its cartoon-ish wooden plane in bold primary colors.

Sitting amongst the vibrant butterfly wall decals is a bed outfitted in a pink and red shabby chic motif along with an adorable children's table lamp with a distinct 1950s feel.

Sometimes the little girl or tween of the household wants a more grown-up room -- this white contemporary table lamp rests on a dreamy floating end table, a mix of child-like fantasy and grown-up taste.

Two-in-one charm

Children's Lamps

Home Decorating Trends†via

The perfect way to divide a kid's bedroom built for two is with a vintage table and chic lamp - the rounded shape of the shade gives this light fixture character.

Simple But Luxurious Homes†via

Certain decor pieces really encapsulate the feel of a space, and the unconventional table lamp candelabra seen here is an exceptional example of this.

Dazzling drum

A tween girl's bedroom, in vibrant colors like pink and turquoise, provides the perfect setting for a young lady. The table lamp and detailed drum shade along with the paper hanging lanterns complete the look.

Still here...

Phew! What a month! Have you missed me? I'm still here...just buried in iPhone cases...

LOTS of iPhone cases

And although I haven't gotten nearly as many photos of these...lucite trays have been flying out of my studio as well. Here are a couple of my favorites that I managed to snap pics of before they left for their new homes!

Luckily my 'office assistant' is a great help. She sure does love those boxes.

And I bet she'd just love to knock over this pile ready to head out the door. They made it safely to the mailman though!

And in other shop hit 1000 sales recently!!! Yipppee! That's quite a milestone. Keeping with tradition I'll be doing a giveaway. Hmm...what should be up for grabs this time?
