Friday hellos to you all, I made it safely home and it’s so good to be back.

Friday Finds

Friday, February 1st, 2013

Hello all, thanks so much for the great comments this week, and for those of you who took the survey, some things I knew, some things I didn’t but I’m so so grateful for your feedback! Here’s a peek at some things that caught my eye this week.

Have you picked up the February issue of BH&G? This dining room is perfection in my eyes, the rustic beams and table, the natural light, the striped rug, and blue mismatched chairs. So inviting, I love it!
