Recent Acquisitions: Little Things

Since I've been back at work, I've been trying to gift myself some of the little things that I haven't allowed myself to indulge in over the last couple of years.

First up, 18" Trove wallpaper samples.  I'm really intrigued by this wallpaper, which I've posted about before, and I finally ordered a couple samples.  My walls aren't really paper friendly, being adobe plaster that resembles stucco in a couple of rooms, but there are a few frame walls on the interior of my house.   I ordered these two, Sargasso and Auva (actually in a slightly different colorway):

And this is what the samples look like when they arrive.  I'm slightly disappointed in the Sargasso sample because I would have liked to be able to see the area a little higher where more color comes together on the large image.  It seems a little too grey otherwise.  It is a beautiful pinkish grey.  The more I look at it the more I like it, actually.  I really love the Aura, and it's interesting to see what a large scale those swirls are in person.  

I also just ordered a box of potential glasses frames from Warby Parker.  My old glasses are in terrible shape, so much so that I never ever wear them off the property.  Can't wait to have new glasses, so cross your fingers that the Warby Parker frames look cute on me.
The second and third from the top are the contenders, now that I've tried them all on.  They are pretty similar, but the brown ones (Miles) have a slightly wider frame.
