You need to check out this website. Those hipsters can be so unhappy, living in their hipster houses. I'll never look at Dwell the same way again.
She had this uncanny way of making him feel so, so small.

Maybe naming him Rimbaud wasn’t such a good idea.

His sartorial attempt to blend in with the concrete did little to assuage the tension.

So Maybe I'm a Little Fanatical, I'm OK With That

You have no idea how much I love this show. Almost as much as my children.

Headboard Options

In my continuing search for headboards, I came across this post and now I'm even more undecided. I'm digging this chalkboard idea....

I have a vintage chalkboard but it's in my children's playroom. They won't mind if it's my headboard, right? And then they'll be standing on my bed, drawing. Hmmmm, maybe not so good of an idea after all. NEXT!

This may be too romantic for my (currently) non-romantic bedroom. But isn't it beautiful?

And who can pass up a huge mirror? Not me. But this may be out of my price range. Most huge mirrors come with a huge price tag.

More searching.....

Be My Valentine

These make me want to send out Valentines to all my sweet friends. The mini-petite Valentine cards are my favorite.

Especially this one...

Go here for a Polka Dot Design Valentine card give-away.

The Thrill of the Thrift

Sometimes the thrift gods smile upon me.....

Isn't this lamp just awesome?! I can't wait to find the perfect shade for it. Maybe something colorful? Floral? Stripes? Give me suggestions.

I'm Looking For A Bathtub That Looks Like A Disco-Ball...

What?! You have one? Yes!
And why wouldn't there be a disco-ball bathroom? It's completely logical. And beautiful in a very shiny I-live-in-a-casino way.

You can find the tiles here.
These photos came from the most amazing blog, Living With White. Which is a goal of mine. Someday when the children are grown and not covered in chocolate and snot, I will have my all white house.

Why? WHY?!

Why do these have to be almost $500?! Each!!

You are seriously killing me Anthropologie!
I love you so much but you are not helping me at all. I'll just have to stare longingly into your windows and dream of the day when $500 boots can be justified. Sadly, today is not that day. Until then, I will look for knock-offs that will pacify my boot lust.

Au revoir, my French wanna be Anthropologie....

Perfect Country House

Yes, I already have Spring on my mind. I'm not a cold weather person. I prefer a nice 80 degree day. Some sun shining on my back. I was doing my daily blog perusing and I came upon this lovely Maryland home. Isn't it dreamy? I would love to waste a day or two sitting on that porch, reading a book, taking a nap in the breeze....ahhh, but I'll wait a few more months and just stare at this house to get me through Winter.

Yay! I Was Featured!!!

My little blog is finally, attempting, trying, hoping to take off! I was high-lighted in Treasured Valley, a local news and info website. I'm so excited!!! And I'm excited because I'm always looking for sources to find local happenings. Living out here in Parma can get a little polarizing at times so I need to venture out. Thanks Treasured Valley, you're on my awesome list now:)

P.S. My food blog was featured too. Someone loves me.

Isn't this place beautiful? I only want it if it comes completely furnished. Books and all. I better learn to speak Norwegian.

What I'm Eyeing in O-Ten

Pillows from this adorable etsy shop.

I LOVE this dresser from Anthropologie. I can't afford the $998 price tag but I think I can re-create the look.

I really want my hair to look this good. I know it never will but it's a dream.
I'm pretty sure this pic came from The Satorialist.

I love tulip skirts and my amazing seamstress friend is going to help me make one! The fabric I chose is a black/blue acetate and it is beautiful. I have no hips so this style is perfect for my no-shape body. I'll have to post on the completed skirt. (or not since I will be the one sewing it:)

I love a good chevron pattern, don't you? I have two end tables that need some help, desperately. I'm going to attempt this pattern on the tops of them and see if it's as easy as they say. Wish me luck!

Instructions found here

Here is another cool chevron project...


I would rather be working here today.
