I have a definitive perspective on buying for baby. In general, invest in items you know or want to last the test of time, recycle old ones where you can, go inexpensive on the “throw away” items and find bargains on everything. After all, who needs retail. So when it came to furniture for our baby girl’s nursery, I looked… Continue reading
As much as I loved creating our baby girl’s alphabet for her nursery, I have to admit it’s time consuming nature had me looking for a simple solution for her growth chart. I had looked online and in store for something that fit the theme and colors of her nursery but nothing quite met my vision. So that meant another… Continue reading
Hands down I was through the roof excited for our little miracle when we found out she was on her way. I thought of her little feet and her little hands and holding her and every single delight, joy, worry and fear that runs through a new mom-to-be’s mind. But one delight that had actually been mulling in my… Continue reading
So I know this one is a little behind the eight ball for Christmas but I got a little swamped pre-Christmas. I really wanted to share because I love this little project. So maybe a little late but I think its worth the wait.
When I decided I wanted to create a Kate Spade Live Colorfully inspired Christmas, I knew… Continue reading
Its been busy around here. Serar’s Christmas party was this last weekend. Making candy for presents with lots and lots of unusual mishaps. My mom’s house finally closed (that’s a story for the record books and perhaps a future post…ugh!) Just to name a few. But we have also been finishing some last minute details to make Kate… Continue reading
It is no secret that I love Christmas. And each year, I try to do something a little different. One constant has always been that I wanted my trees and my decorations to look like I hope my house does throughout the year – designed by a designer. Professional in other words. Professional. Designer. These words bring to… Continue reading
I saw this amazingly simple card holder last year on. Sadly, I don’t remember where but it did make an impression on me. And when I decided I wanted to do a Kate Spade inspired Christmas, specifically her Live Colorfully line, I knew exactly what I want to do using it as the base design for a Kate Spade Inspired… Continue reading
And the Kate Spade Christmas décor continues! When I decided I was embracing my inner Kate Spade and decorating with the Live Colorfully in mind, the very first project on my to do list was an ornament wreath. I mean really, you can’t get more colorful than a wreath filled with ornaments of all different sizes, colors and textures.
There… Continue reading
Perhaps it should say cheese? In this family we leave wine and cheese for Santa. What can I say, Santa needs a break from all that sugar and lactose. But tradition states Santa gets cookies. So you can’t have Christmas without a cookie plate, right?
With my Kate Spade inspired Christmas, that left me with a couple of options. Dots… Continue reading
Oh my Kate Spade obsession. Let it get fuller and richer and completely robust! Bring on the purses, the wallets, the cellphone covers, the whimsical jewelry and awesome clutches (so off subject but she has the cutest champagne bottle clutch for the holidays…I have absolutely no where to use this awesome clutch but oh how I want one!). And… Continue reading
