Good morning!

Now that M and I are settling into our daily routine I'm starting to think about decorating again.
When we moved into our house in January I was 20 weeks pregnant. I made a list of the things I wanted to accomplish by June, which included: painting several rooms upstairs and the entire downstairs, putting together the perfect nursery, making the outside presentable with new flowers and shrubs, tying together the family room with a rug and new pillows, and several other things.

What this left was 2 guest rooms that have been pulled together with things we already had, meaning I don't necessarily like how they look. And several other rooms that are about halfway to where I want them to be even though to outsiders I think they look pretty nice.

One of the rooms that is 3/4 of the way finished is our formal living room/piano room. It is to the right as you come in the front door and houses our apartment grand piano, 2 white wingback chairs, a small table, and a few stringed instruments. We painted the walls Behr Ultra Ashes and I purchased 2 colorful pillows.

I have ordered prints and purchased frames, which we will hang this weekend. Besides a few other things on the walls what the room is screaming for is curtains. When I came across this image the drapes struck me as something that might just be perfect for the living room.

I'm on the hunt for navy curtains!

Things I'm Thinking About


I hope you all are staying cool. It's so farkin' hot here. I'm mostly staying inside:

1. because there is a heat index of 105 and above most days
2. I have a 6 week old
3. because I'm tired ;)

I have been trying in my free time to figure out Pinterest with not a lot of success. Luckily, I have found I'm not the only one having problem adding the Pin It button. I'm still enjoying doing searches and browsing around. A few of these images are from Pinterest but a few are ideas I have had bookmarked for awhile.

I need to try this braid!

I might try to make these this week. I have a great friend visiting and I know she would help me eat/drink them! :)

These are Popsicles served with Prosecco. A delicious, easy and the perfect summer treat!

I'm eyeing this print from Etsy. We're from Ohio and it's where our heart will always belong

I have been thinking about stenciling a wall in our dining room (which is a similar light gray). I even borrowed a large stencil in a graphic pattern from a friend.....I just need the time to do it!

I think this is so cute and would look great in a nursery or really anywhere to add a pop of color

What projects are you thinking about? I'm ready to start something....I just need to decide which one!

Newborn Photos

Hi all!

I don't know about where you are but it is HOT here this week. I feel like we're still in South Florida not Kentucky. Ugh. Enough complaining....I have something fun to share. We had Madeleine's newborn photos taken at 2 weeks and I'm here to share a few favorites with you.

Neutral Love

Hi all!

Those of you that have been following the blog for awhile now know that I am a fan of neutrals. Call it indecisiveness or what you will but I tend to buy large pieces in neutral tones and then accent with fun colors that are easy to change out.

Here are a few neutral photos that I love:

Have a great day!

DIY Mobile Idea

Good morning!

I had to share this beautiful and easy to recreate mobile idea when I ran across it the other day. It is a simple lace and ribbon mobile that would dress up any nursery.

I totally want to steal this idea.
SKM-this made me think of you and what you should do with all your jewels one day.

source found here

Simple canvases wrapped in fabric used to display jewelry. Not only is it functional but it's art all in itself. We have a huge closet but not a lot of wall space where clothes aren't hanging otherwise this would be perfect. Hmmmm, might have to figure out a way to make it work.
