Monday's Fab Finds...

It is of no surprise that I have been perusing Etsy and I do believe I have expressed my love of pretty paper. I found these beautiful note cards at Ignafruit. You can have them customized with your name. I love the bird motif. 

I love the simplicity of these and the gorgeous chocolate envelopes too. Found at Movara Cards.
This one is just fun! Found at Made by Keli.
A girl can't help to look at the bags. I love the black and white pattern on this cutie. It's a nice size too. I used to like a smaller bag, but would just be over flowing before long. This great bag can be found at Gypsy Rose Handbags.
I think this one is just great too. Love the Asian inspired print! Found at Madison Gre.

Room And Board...

If you have had the pleasure of visiting a Room and Board store you are a lucky one. Although I am not close enough to an actual store I do adore there designs. So classic and beautiful. I do however order there new catalog every year. I can't get enough of their swoon worthy designs and inspiration rooms. Here are just a few of my favorite things. There lighting is to die for, but I couldn't copy them all over for you to see. You will have to hop on over there and check it out!

I love this chunky console table.
I have had my eye out for some chairs for our living room for some time. How could you ever choose. All the great styles and fabric choices. Do you have a fav?

As most of you know I am a Cosmetologist! Blair finally has enough hair to actually have a style. So this is the style I whipped up for her. While she has pretty fine hair, this little cut works great for her! So I thought I might share with everyone. Since you don't get to see her often enough! LOL! 

Finally Master Bedroom....

After getting a new comforter by accident, and just all together ready for a bedroom spruce up the finishing results are in. I upholstered my own headboard back in December using some great online tutorials and a velvet curtain for the fabric. I love how it turned out. I feel like I am in a swanky place that isn't mine. I had planned on having matching end tables on either side of the bed, but had a bit of a tweek in my plan. Now each side has it's own personality and I am really happy with it. Having the steel blue curtains really gives the room a serene environment. The mirrors, lamps and tulip style table I picked up at Target. (my fav store) With three kids always in toe there aren't to many other places I venture out to on a regular basis. And why when Target is so great. 

The story on this side table: I ordered them from Ikea and when I received them and got them put together they were way to low. I knew that they would be on the shorter side but thought it might still work. Not even close. So my fix was to attach the two boxes together. Because I loved the look of the tables so much I hated to send them back. Once I got the two boxes attached together it was perfect. Bonus for me I get more storage. Below is what it looks like with the two tables attached together and below that is the  original version. 

This is the hubs side of the bed. I love this table and was really excited when I realized I could incorporate  it into our room . Plus he doesn't need the storage space on his side like I do for all of my stuff!

Last but not least is our lil sitting area. I am still working on that frame above. I am going to paint the frame black. Right now I have some paintable wall paper unpainted in the frame. But am thinking I will paint it my accent color of steel blue. Your thoughts?

Here is a closer shot of the framed piece.

Cabin Fever...

I think it is safe to say my little munkins are having a bit of cabin fever. We haven't been out since yesterday because of ice and snow. I was cooking lunch and came into the kitchen to this scene. They both had stripped off their pj's and rearranged my couch to make a slide of sorts! Looks like they are having a good time. AAAHHHH!

Winter Woes...


It is official, I dislike everything about winter. We could totally skip it all together and I would be just fine with that. What do I hate about it.
1. Preheating my car
2. Worrying if my kids are warm enough
3. Getting sick
4. Not being able to get outside and play
5. Snow and Ice
6. High bills
7. No leaves on the trees
8. Grey skies

I think that about covers it. Winter and I don't get along. Come on spring.

Because I'm A Girl...

Because a girl has got to look good I have been cruising around the net. Here are a few things I have come across. Although I am having a bit of spring fever already I don't see it coming any time soon. So I am steering clear of the spring previews, it would only make me sad about cold weather. I am really loving this purse I found at Esprit.

These cute sweaters are also found at Esprit.

Is this not the most gorgeous ring ever! I found it at, you guessed it Etsy.
I was at first resistant to patent leather and have since found myself in love. I came across these shoes in this months issue of Lucky Magazine. I couldn't resist the shiny cuteness with the buckle on the toe! When I went to look them up at (Lexine is the name of the shoe) I found that they were on sale from $80 to $28! Wow!

Just A Little Pick Me Up...

Daily inspiration from Decor Pad! I love stopping by, because even when I am not doing much decorating around my place I can browse over the beautiful pictures. Most of the work we are doing in our place is strictly for resale purposes. When we bought our home we knew it was not going to be our forever home. Three children later I know it's not my forever home! We are growing out of it fast.  With all that said here are some gorgeous photos!

Oh and BTW, my bedside tables should be here by the weekend! YAY!

Last but certainly not least are a few more Etsy finds.  I am diggin this lil bird motif! And simply adore black and white!

Link located at bottom of post.


We all know Etsy is a wonderful place! You could literally spend hours upon hours there. I have a new nephew, so I thought I would browse for boy things. You know girl things are so irresistible. I came across these adorable shoes! I thought my baby girl was going  to be to big for these, but she offers some larger sizes. I couldn't resist sharing this super cute find! Happy shopping.

Ikea Find...

The more I look at this piece the more I love it. I usually like clean lines, not this more romantic look. For what ever reason I am drawn to this piece. Good thing Ikea isn't any closer than it is.
