For today's post, I have chose two items to review. One of them is the reclaimed wood cookbook stand.

Here is the one I received!

I like my charming reclaimed wood cookbook for its rustic, weathered, old world flair! Made with thick solid wood, this cookbook feels heavy and sturdy. When I first laid my eyes on it, I can't get pass the many character marks and scratches on the wood, to be honest. However, I have grown to love it for its natural character and imperfections. It's a great addition to our home and I find it to be very useful for holding recipes, books or a tablet.

Another item I have picked for my review are the classic cocktail towels

Here is mine!

I love these fabulous cocktail towels! I have received two so I can have one in the kitchen and one framed as an artwork! Made with organic cotton and beautifully printed, I can't help but admire its attractive design. Personally, I don't drink but it is fun to learn what goes into each cocktail! I think this cocktail towel is a wonderful addition to any bar or bar cart and a perfect gift for someone who likes to entertain or make drinks!

*I have received these products to review for free but the views and opinions expressed are entirely my own.

While purple is not typically the go to color for me, I am greatly inspired by this beautiful beach cottage. Every room is so perfectly put together! My favorite rooms are the living room, kitchen and library with the secret reading nook. I am also in love with the gorgeous purple built-ins, they are so refreshing! Are you drawn to this lovely home as much as I do? Favorites?
