Slab + Steel

Hello!  I am so excited to share today's post with you!  Years ago I started working in furniture and design and I just loved it.  My husband and I recently launched a website called and I hope you'll check it out.  Our products are handcrafted near the mountains of Utah using solid American woods and marine grade stainless steel.  We offer free shipping throughout the continental United States and since all homes and spaces are different our pieces can be customized to your exact size.  

If you ever watch the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon you'll see our tables often used during games Jimmy plays with his guests.  We probably won't ever get to hang out with Jimmy Fallon and other celebrities, but we always feel like proud parents when our tables get too.

New blog

Hello!  I wanted to introduce you to my travel blog.  It's called wander+eat+sleep and the idea for it has been bouncing around in my head for almost a year.  When I can't sleep I plan trips instead of counting sheep.  I'll still be updating here at Annelily Design, but I hope you'll follow me over at too.  Today's post is on flight deals!

Artwork Inspiration

I am always looking for new artwork for my home and has some great pieces.  I have a minor obsession with Italy and our home has a few pieces of art that we purchased from street vendors while traveling there.  I instantly fell in love with this painting from invaluable by Italian artist Attilio Pratella.  I accented the painting with a complimentary color palette of furniture and accessories.

Marshmallow Olaf

So I ended up taking a little blogging break.  Between having health issues I'm still trying to get under control, some changes coming up for my family, and our little concrete business getting busier blogging has taken a back seat.  

A few weeks ago we finally saw Frozen and my kids are obsessed.  We made little Olaf's with marshmallows.  Super easy!

Supplies: Black frosting or edible gel.  I used a sparkley gel.  Toothpicks, two mini marshmallows, a medium marshmallow, an extra large marshmallow, and a little carrot.  

I purchased a bag of these and used one for the nose.
Place the toothpicks in the largest marshmallow and attach the small marshmallows for hands.  Insert the nose in the medium marshmallow.  Draw on a face and buttons and your finished.
My 7 year old surrounded her Olaf with cotton balls for snow and a little umbrella.

White Gift Guide

Today's gift guide features white.  I think white is always a safe bet for gift giving.  I would really love to get that little Fuji camera!
