Hi all!

A topic we haven't talked about in awhile is rugs. I think rugs are an easy way to pull a space together and at the same time they can completely change and make a space.

Here are a few rugs I'm loving today!

Have a great day!

Blue Lovin'

Hi all!

As I have mentioned before, my favorite color to wear and to decorate with is blue. I love all shades of blue and sometimes I have to restrain myself to not go overboard with it in each room. I'm happy to say I have expanded my horizons but there is something about a blue room I love.

Here are a few I have bookmarked!

What's your go-to decorating color?

Eye Candy

Good morning!

Did you all have a nice weekend? I hope so! We are getting the hang of having a new little one around and look forward to the days when more sleep will be the norm again. As you can imagine my mind hasn't been on decorating the last few weeks so I was happy to finally give into the Pinterest craze and check it out.

These are a few images I have found. Although I am definitely still trying to figure it all out. I use Safari and can't figure out how to get the "pin it" button onto my toolbar. It says to drag it, but I can't. HELP!?!

Anyone want to give this tired lady a quick lesson on Pinterest?

Fabric Love

Hi all!

Have I been living under a rock? I think I may have been. I was browsing Calico Corners fabric and came across Thom Filicia's fabric line for the first time. I'm impressed! It is a modern twist on a lot of semi-traditional prints yet they are still muted and very useable.

Here are a few of my favorites. They come in several different colors and unfortunately some are far from inexpensive but click the name to see for yourself.

What do you think?

Have a great day!

New Items In Stores

Hi all!

Here are a few new items in stores that I'm loving! I have to admit I haven't been keeping up with what are in stores and there are a lot of new items that are beautiful!

I love, love, love this quilt!

I need more towel like a hole in the head but these are awesome!

I have no place for this but I think it's adorable!

I want these mugs!!!

I knew Jacob would love this table for his space and when I asked he agreed. Too bad we aren't even close to buying furniture for it. :)

What are you loving in stores or online these days?

Front Yard Reveal

Hi all!

I have posted a few times about trying to decide which flowers to plant and how I really wanted it to look nice outside before baby arrives. Well, I just realized I never showed you the final product.

I must preface this with saying that we simply planted flowers and kept what was already in place because of our time crunch. I hope to rework the flower beds/landscaping next year. I also must say that I hate our front don't judge. ;)

Tatum helps us with the watering

The red flowers are verbena and the white flowers are alyssum. I prefer a much fuller look so I'm hoping they both grow and fill out more as the summer continues.

I also decided to add a few pots of flowers to soften the steps and because you can't have too many flowers in my book!

I'm proud of what we have accomplished considering it's been such a wet spring and since I was 8 months pregnant by the time we could start really planting. My mom was a huge help and we certainly couldn't have done it without her!

I head to the doctor today for my 40 week appointment. I'm hoping for some progress!

Have a great day!
