Lovely Bathrooms

Aren't these bathrooms just gorgeous!!!?  I love each and every one of them!  I normally am a pedestal sink kind of girl, but that yellow/ graphite and white bathroom by Sarah Richardson is just fantastic!  I love everything about it!  AND, I found a cabinet almost identical to the one she turned into a sink at a garage sale last summer for 20.00!  It is in our bathroom right now, but as a storage cabinet.  It really makes me want to turn it into a sink! :)

New Front Door

So....I painted our front door orange the other day!  I am not sure I like it.  It looked great on the color chip and great mixed.  It is a nice burnt orange.  It is called "harvest" or something like that.  My husband really likes it, as well as my mom, but I am still not sure.  I even bought a couple new front door mats to try that and I just can't seem to love it.  But, I am going to live with it for a few more days and see if it grows on me.  What do you think?

Lovely Bedrooms

If you are anything like me, I have left our bedroom dead last to get in ship shape order.  I have done the basics, like paint and bedding and such...but haven't made it really special.  We have lived in this house almost 6 years now....hmm....maybe it is about time I made our bedroom a priority!  I mean, we do spend alot of time in there, right!?  I will say that we have THE most comfy bed, ever!!  I will never scrimp on a good mattress, that is for sure!    We got it when we first moved in together and it just keeps getting better and comfier!  Ok, enough about the bed....  Here are some pics of great bedrooms!  They inspire me to make ours just as special!

Yipppee!! My fabric came for my new slipcovers!  I called the lady and they are going in on thursday to get started!  I am super excited!  She said they will take a couple weeks to make two slipcovers, but I think it is worth the wait!  I picked this oatmeal linen.  It is 100% linen, like my couch, and my couch has held up really great for almost 2 years now, even with pets and a child!  So, I hope it does good on the chairs, which happen to get more use!  The other robin egg blue damask is going to be used for curtains.  I have a whole vision in my head.....I hope it comes out as expected!  I can't wait to show the finished room in a few weeks!

Keep Calm

Hello!  Please excuse the bad, dark pictures!  I bought these two Keep Calm and Carry On posters the other day and already got them!  I wanted to hang one next to my sewing machine to remind me to "keep calm" with all my pillows to make! :)   I bought the grey one and she sent the pink for free!  I love them!  I bought a large poster frame in black and then the white one is a 13x19.  I like the pop of pink with all the grey and white!

Todays Image Gorgeous!!

I  L.O.V.E. this room!  The table, while being kinda modern, is totally not something I would buy myself, but I love it in this picture!  It makes me want to add some modern pieces in my house.  I normally go towards large, farmhouse style tables.  And that chair color!!?  Fabulous!  I love it all.  Don't even get me started on that mirror.  I want it.  I need it.  Where can I find one for under 100.00??  Any ideas?  My eyes will be peeled! :) 

  Hope your day is going good!  It is rainy and cold here today, but I am looking forward to dinner tonight with some friends from high school!  I can't believe that our 10 year high school reunion is next month!!  Time sure does fly!
