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!

Have you been to Target lately?  Their new Modern Cottage collection has some really great pieces, I picked up a few aqua vases for myself last week, but I love these other accents too.

Happy Weekend!

Friday, 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’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!
