Upholstered Headboards...

With upholstered headboards all the rage, I admit I to have fallen in love with them. Last December I gave the DIY headboard a try, and have been enjoying having the softness it brings to the room.

I am getting bored. Imagine that! I am craving some pattern. Like these lovelies...

I sure love this soothing color scheme, and the little bit of zebra print. So nice...

Getting Ready For Fall...

We put out our fall decorations this weekend. But before I could put the deco on the door, it needed a paint job. Sorry there is no before picture. It was a shade of red that has been driving me crazy for quite some time. When I would get out my fall decorations they would just blend into the door. So it was time for a change. It is now a dark grey. Much better! Also, I let the kids pick out some pumpkins for the porch and I purchased one of my very favorite type of pumpkins, a fairy tale pumpkin. (it's the one on the 1st step) To spice up our pumpkins a bit I painted the kids initial on each of their pumpkins.

Here is a close up shot at the new color on the door. You don't even know how happy having this stinkin' thing painted makes me.

I couldn't resist these scarecrows we came across while picking up our pumpkins. Aren't they sweet?

I think the highlight of the kids weekend, wasn't picking out pumpkins it was getting new bikes! =)
They rode their hearts out.
It took Jude a minute to get it. He kept hitting his brakes. Oh was he getting mad. But, after about 10 minutes or so he was off and going.

Blairie took right off, and hers has a bell. She loves that!

What to say about Rhett! He looks likes such a big boy. That tall bike, and him taking off like an ole pro made me want to cry. He was so excited!

Bag Lady...

While out, totally not looking for luggage, I came across these super cute bags. I think I may have to have them. The first is a small bag (maybe for your toiletries), the second more of an overnight garment bag.

Outdoor Living In The Fall...

I know this is not the right season to be thinking about outdoor living, however with our newly liberated backyard I can't help myself. I am dreaming of reworking our deck and getting to do some landscaping. I sure like this clean and simple look. No railing, just open space.

Then cozying it up with some cute and comfy seating like this.

A Sad and Happy Story...

Most of you don't know that for the past four years I have not stepped foot into my back yard. Why? Our neighbor had a viscous dog that has hopped into our yard before and terrified us and our other neighbors. We the sad part of this story is that our neighbor has recently passed away. For that I feel terrible. On the happy side of this story the dog has been removed... today and we are about to go do a happy dance in our BACK YARD! I cannot tell you how excited we ALL are!! I can do some finally do some landscaping and move the kids sandbox to the back yard. It has been in my garage for the last year! Oh Happy Day!

Store Happy...

Well around here it has been rainy and cool, so I guess I'll give into fall. Not willing mind you. Here are a few things I am loving from one of my favorite stores Francesca's. (Some for fall and some not) If you have one close to you you have got to check it out. I wished they had some of their frames and wall decor on their website to show you. They are all so unique and beautiful.

Card Me...

I have been in desperate need of some new business cards, because I use them with almost every client to schedule their next hair appointment. Where better to turn to than Etsy. Here is a shop, where I think I loved every card she makes.

Fingerprint Friday...

Pampering Beki is hosting Fingerprint Friday...
For me this week I feel so blessed to have time... time with my kids. 
Where do you see God's fingerprints on your life? 

Lions And Tigers And Chairs Oh My...

I would so love to get some chairs for my living room. One problem... I don't know what I want. I feel like I will know it when I see it. Until then these are nice.

{All of these lovely chairs are from Room And Board}
