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
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
So I am obsessed with Kate Spade right now…massively obsessed! I have purses, watches, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, iPad covers, phone covers and more of hers (nothing retail of course because that would violate my budget savvy, deal and steal hunting core inner diva). Its a mix of the combination of bold colors, the unapologetic use of bold graphics… Continue reading
With my adventures in upholstery starring the channel back yard sale find chair all done and over, it was more than time to focus my efforts elsewhere in our living room remodel. The wingback that my mother had been assisting on had stalled since our last class, so perhaps it was time I took a… Continue reading
Happy Halloween to Everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful, safe and fun Halloween!
I have to brag a little about my friend, Danielle Baich. She did all the cute Halloween doggy photos this year. Aren’t they awesome! My yorkies are definitely camera hams. You have seen the photo bombs all over my blog. But she got my little… Continue reading
My living room makeover is a slow but steady process. Its a complete overhaul with built-ins being added, a fireplace wall instillation, painting cathedral ceilings, crafting new curtains, reupholstering chairs, and refinishing tables. Between the list of projects and the cost of projects, we are in it for the long haul. And for this next step in the remodel, I… Continue reading
Its finally here. All my hard work, sweat, swears and tears…lots of tears…has finally paid off! And I LOVE my chair! The last task to share was both the easiest and the hardest all in one. Nail heads.
You would think that nail heads should be easy. After all, its position, hit and admire. And for the most part… Continue reading
