You've Got Mail inspired home decor


You may enjoy this post today if you:
Dream of moving to New York in the fall…
Really want a reason to tell someone “That caviar is a garnish!”…
Know what the “shoe books” are…
Frequently have the urge to send someone a bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils…
Know what “go to the mattresses” means….

If you’ve answered YES to any of the questions above, then you might like today’s post. And we should probably be best friends. Did you know that I’m a HUGE You’ve Got Mail fan? Please tell me I’m not the only one. Not sure if I should be super proud of that or slightly embarrassed. Either way, I know all the lines, have Ellie singing the soundtrack, and have little hints of You’ve Got Mail inspired décor sprinkled around my home. You know, since I can’t live in New York, don’t own a children's bookstore, and only dream that I could pull off Meg Ryan’s hair, this will have to do. ;)

You've got Mail New York in the Fall Print

“Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies.”

Let’s all move to New York, right now. This print is perfect for fall and it’s available right here.

You've got Mail Bouquet of Freshly Sharpened Pencils

“I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address.”

Bouquets of sharpened pencils. Is there anything more romantic than that? :) I love keeping a bouquet on my desk at all times. Plus, they never, ever die.

You've Got Mail Typewriter

  “You’re turning my apartment into a typewriter museum!”

These typewriter bookends just scream Frank Navasky and sit perfectly on our bookshelf. Similar here.

You've Got Mail Scotch Tape Quote

“Can you beat that?” “Scotch tape? What is wrong with you?”

Sniff it. You’ll understand. Another desk essential.

You've Got Mail Ballet Shoes Quote

“I’d start with Ballet shoes first. It’s my favorite. Although Skating Shoes is completely wonderful, but it’s out of print.”

It wouldn’t be right if you didn’t have a a copy of Ballet Shoes on your bookshelf. I picked up an older copy here.

You've Got Mail Daisies are the Friendliest Flower

“I love daisies…. They're so friendly. Don't you think daisies are the friendliest flower?”

Fresh daisies are a must! White, pink, yellow, they’re the friendliest, no doubt about it. Split the bouquet into a few small vases and place in several rooms.

You've Got Mail Quotes

“Confession, I have read Pride and Prejudice two hundred times. I get lost in the language, words like 'Thither. Mischance. Felicity.' I'm always in agony over whether Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy are really going to get together. Ah! Read it. I know you'll love it!”

And if we’re really going all out, let’s stick a rose in it and keep it  in on the coffee table.

You've Got Mail NY152 and Shopgirl DIY mugs
