I Won!

I enter blog contests all the time and I really don't expect to win. But I finally did! You all need to check out one of my fav blogs, Belle Maison. She has such a great eye for beauty and style. And then check out the etsy shop that I won the print from, Hadley Hutton. Wow!!! Loving her art! And I love birds so it's a perfect match.

Good Things

While unpacking my boxes I found a book I had put together of a compilation of my favorite "good things" from Marthat Stewart Living magazine. The book is full of practicle and beautiful design that only Martha and her team can produce. It's been a while since I've looked at her "good things" and I feel a need for decorating and organization inspiration for my new house. Here are some pretties I found....

Chocolate Week

In honor of Natl. Chocolate Week I'm going to spotlight my very favorite local chocolatier, 'the Chocolat bar' in Boise. They are AMAZING!!! All their chocolates are made in their cute little downtown shop by Kristi Echols-Preston and Chris Preston, the friendliest people ever. These are a few of my favs...
White Chocolate Lemon Lavender Almond Bark
Dark Chocolate Green Chili Pistachio Bark
Coconut Cluster Milk Chocolate

They also make these high heel shoe chocolates that I would love to give as a gift. If you are ever in the Boise area you should stop by and treat yourself to a yummy chocolate!

Why Do We Want What We Can't Have?

I want to bake yummy spring treats like this...

But my oven looks like this...

(okay, maybe I'm a little dramatic, but it was sparking in the back and emitting toxic fumes)

So until I find a reasonably priced range on craigslist I will have to settle for this...

I Couldn't Resist

I wasn't looking to buy anything from etsy while I was hunting there the other day, it just happened. I was researching, not shopping! But I saw these chair prints and it was over; I had to have them! Besides, they will looks so cute in simple little frames on my white walls.
