Best of the Blogosphere

BOTB 4.1.13

Monday, April 1st, 2013

Happy Monday everyone, hope you had a lovely Easter weekend! We managed to squeeze in an egg hunt just before it started to rain, and Matt grilled seasoned lamb chops for dinner under the umbrella, but because of the raindrops it was nice quiet day for us. Today is a rare Monday ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ post but it’s been a few weeks, so Amanda and I again gathered up our favorites, enjoy these inspiring spaces, projects, and ideas!       

I loved reading the story behind this creative home office makeover designed by Stephen Saint Onge at Designer Dad.
