Vote For Me, Pretty Please!

I entered my pretty blue table in a before/after contest on Fresh Nest Design Blog so everyone, please, please, please rush over there and vote for me! This is the first time I've entered any of my work in a contest and it's so fun to see it on another blog. Woo Hoo!!! It would be even cooler if I won:) C'mon, the bed would be so cute in my baby's room.

Thanks, my friends!!!!

This is the bed I could win, with your help of course:)

Summer Reading List

I haven't been able to read a book for quite a while now. I just don't have time and if I do sit down to read I fall asleep. But now I'm itching for a few good reads. So here is my summer reading list.....
Austenland by Shannon Hale
The Actor and the Housewife by Shannon Hale (yes, I love Shannon's books)
Just Jane by Nancy Moser
Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophia Kinsella (I bought this book a couple months ago and then my 14 yr. old claimed it)
The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett (I've gotten mixed reviews on this one so I need to check it out for myself, and it's been on my bookshelf for a long time)
My Antonia by Willa Cather (I've had this book even longer)
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini

And here are some from the "classics" that are on my reading list...
Tess of D'Ubervilles by Thomas Hardy
Atonement by Ian McEwan (The movie is rated R so reading the books is ok, right?)
Count of Monte Cristo by Alex Dumas (I can't believe I've never read this one)

Now I just need a cozy chair and a wide-open summer.

What will you be reading?

Before and After

I got this table a couple years ago and have finally painted it. I absolutely LOVE it! I still have to finish the art work that will go on the wall behind the table. Hopefully that will happen this week. Then it will feel like a completed project. Yay! I'm so happy when I get a vision and I can carry it out.

L'Italia Chiama Il Mio Nome

Check out this amazing hotel in Positano, Italy...

I found it at the very chic blog, Everything Fabulous, which it is.
You can find info on it here.

My Newest Obsession

I've decided to start another collection. Globes. Planet Earths. Worlds. Preferably vintage. It has been a while since I've really dedicated myself to a full on search for an object. I need to have a goal to be working on and this just feels right. Yesterday I found this one.

A couple weeks ago I found one at a rummage sale that is also a lamp. Awesome. $2.00, and it works. It ignited my new-found desire for all things globe. Here it is in all it's glowing glory...

Good thing it's yard sale season.
