Happy Weekend!

January 4th, 2013

Christmas is all cleaned up, packed and put away, and now we’re moving on to a few projects around the house.  We’re assembling some new shelves for my office this weekend and I’m prepping for a big photo shoot at my house too, I’ll be sure to Instagram a few shots of the process going on next week (follow me here.)

Have you toured the HGTV Dream Home for 2013?  This colorful bathroom is my favorite space, what’s yours?

I’d get way too grumpy on a juice cleanse, but I’m drawn to this food lover’s cleanse – a lot of these recipes look both healthy and tasty!

I’m so excited about the return of Downton Abbey this weekend, are you?  I took the quiz Which Downton Abbey Job Is Right for You? and apparently the one for me is the same as my favorite character.  Awesome.  Take it and tell me which job you get!

Pine Cone Hill Giveaway

January 3rd, 2013

I remember when I first spied Pine Cone Hill linens in a local shop in town years ago and instantly fell in love with the brand’s fresh and vibrant patterns.  Pine Cone Hill is a sister company to Dash & Albert rugs (another favorite!), both run by visionary Annie Selke and filled with her beautiful designs for home, which include table linens, bedding, sleepwear, and other decorative accessories.

Pine Cone Hill offers fresh and fabulous textiles for any home and the quality is supurb!  I have a few of Annie’s pillows, blankets, and rugs scattered around my home and they’re favorites of mine.  Always chic, the collections include linens with a colorful vintage vibe and also subdued hues in calming neutrals as well.
