Happy Friday, friends! Though we don’t typically buy into the whole “Mercury in Retrograde” business, this has been one of those weeks (chaos, anyone?!) and we are oh-so-ready for the weekend! Before we head out, we’re excited to share our favorite finds of the week. Enjoy:

— Vintage fans… ready your shopping carts! William Rankin McLure, the artist-turned-designer, has curated a fabulous collection on Chairish. Inspired by his divine southern home, you’ll find everything from the perfect accent chair to original artwork and light fixtures.

— Let’s be honest. When it comes to cookware, the options feel a little limited. That’s why we’re so thrilled to discover Caraway! The well-designed, non-toxic ceramic cookware is a game changer… and will look beautiful in any kitchen.

— If you’re planning on hosting friends and family this holiday season, you’ll want to “guest proof” your house. No point in ruining that one-of-a-kind rug you brought back from Morocco — it’s not meant for muddy boots or spilled red wine! We’re obsessed with Ruggable, a washable rug that comes in endless styles. (You *literally* throw it in the washing machine.) Their holiday collection is super cute, and the perfect solution if you want your house to look chic for guests but don’t want to worry about anything getting damaged.

— Anyone else dream of quitting their day job for la dolce vita?! 20 years ago, Cortney McDermott left the corporate American life for Italy. She shares how she did it on Create & Cultivate’s blog.

— If you love to entertain, you’ll want to add California Cooking and Southern Style to your library! Author Frances Schultz shares her expert tips on seasonal tabletop decor, home design and entertaining, food pairing and florals, and so much more.

— Finally, we’re likely to spend our Friday distracted by the Nordstrom sale. Favorites include a cozy fleece, the perfect peacoat, and boots we love. Happy shopping!
