Love This Designer

You know when you look at a designer's portfolio and you wish you could live there? That's how I felt about Ashley Whittaker's work. I could move in to any one of the homes she decorated and not change a thing. Well, maybe the sheets.

Bright Star

This weekend I watched "Bright Star" and fell in love. The costumes, the set decoration, the scenery, the script. Everything about it was beautiful and romantic and made me swoon. I think I'll watch it again. Design*Sponge did a post on it a while back. I love their "Living In..." series. Go read the post and then watch the movie. You're welcome, in advance.

Spring Break!!!!

This past week was our Spring Break. Not a very eventful Spring Break but a relaxing time for sure. I was able to take a day off and we had a wonderful, fun-packed family day. We had a great lunch, including a pizza with almonds on top, sooo yummy! Finally went to the new Hobby Lobby. (The kids weren't sure this was on the "fun" list but I assured them it was. They loved it! :) Had a great time at Zoo Boise, one of our favorite places. Visited Grandma & Grandpa, who are serving a mission for our Church. Ate way too much ice cream. And ended the day (by then it was night) with a trip to our favorite thrifting spot, Saver's. It was a fun, fun day with my 4 beautiful, amazing children.

Hope you all have a great Spring Break, or just Spring!


I really want a windmill now. Look how beautiful it is...

Like Buttah

Yellow was always my "go-to" color. I have branched out a bit more but I still am drawn to it's buttery goodness.

UYU Design

I have to introduce you to one of my favorite buys of the last year, Uyu Wristlet Key Fobs. I love mine. I never lose my keys in my purse, the strap is super comfy, and it is beautiful fabric. Check out my friend Judi's Etsy shop, Uyu Design. They are amazing and I know you'll love yours as much as I love mine. And buy one for your friend, you know she wants one too.
See how awesome it is!!! She just carries that baby with ease and doesn't lose her keys.

My Dream

You know when you have some free time on your hands, like when you are waiting in line at the DMV or something equally as exciting? What do you think about? I like to think about my little decorating shop that I will have one day. It has been planned out in my head so many times. Bright colors, sunlight streaming through the windows, vintage ribbons on huge spools, shiny new crystal lighting, pastel painted furniture, a little work-space in the back where I can create and refinish. It's a fun dream. I'm working on making it come true. Here are some inspirations photos I've gathered....

 I've had these pics forever so I don't know the sources anymore, sorry!

Ok, fine you talked me into it. I'll come!

The Art of the Table

It has been awhile since I've hosted a dinner party complete with place settings, center pieces, and place cards. I have no reason to throw one besides wanting to set a beautiful table like these...
