With all the recent travel, I’m ready for a quiet weekend at home! Most people I know are off doing exciting things, not me. :) That’s okay, June is shaping up to be a busy month, I’ll be in Europe for two weeks and having a few other adventures too.
This weekend I’m organizing and cleaning my house and getting my children ready for their school promotions next week. I’ve got one off to junior high and my daughter is starting high school next year, life is moving so fast, it makes my head spin. :)
For Mother’s Day, all I wanted just a long afternoon of retail therapy, just me and my latte, strolling around favorite home decor stores like West Elm and CB2. I did just that and while I was out made a few purchases, one was a modern palm hurricane that I’m using as a planter. And may I mention CB2 is killing it with their spring vessels this year.

I spied a bunch of them at the stores mentioned above, and a few more online. Unique vessels to have so you can stash you stuff with style. Here are some standouts:
