Things I Love About This Hallway


- the crisp white beadboard against the dark rich wall color
- the pop of green against the dark wall color
- the small oval frame around the bird print
- the small square framed horse photo that is hung by a ribbon beneath it
- the shadowbox of ribbons
- the old table with riding hats atop it

- everything.

It's all in the Details.

Loving the bird detailing on these dresses.

The Woodours: Not Your Average Teddy Bears


I would love to get these activity bears for my son. I love the patterns and the different soft shapes he can explore and have imaginative play. I actually stumbled upon them in two places. The first was surprisingly Kate's Paperie. The second, one of my favorite children's toy stores; Moolka. Also really loving the dishware, too.

Bright Kitchen Inspiration


It's so rainy out today that I thought I would cheer myself up with some nice and bright kitchens. I'm also under the weather. I never realized how hard it would be to take care of a little one with a cold. I'm so weak I can barely stand and hold him at the same time. Ugh!

Pretty Details


Love the neckline and details of this dress. I may like it better in a solid color or a different print, but I'm really liking the neckline.

Kitchen Envy

I'm completely lusting for these kitchens. While I doubt our own kitchen renovation will be getting off the ground this year, and we don't have the wonderful light sources (read: windows) in ours, it's fun to dream.


About the image sources: I'm a complete idiot and didn't save the sources of these photos. They came from my inspiration folder. If anyone recognizes these kitchens and knows the owners/source of them please let me know and I'll update my post to include them immediately. Otherwise, these images are 100% their respective owners (whomever that may be).

Really loving...


These items.

I'd love these napkins with a pocket for silverware from Plum Party for our next get together. These card catalog pulls from Anthropologie are amazing. I have to hold myself back from ordering a bunch of them, because I have no real project in mind to use them on. Then again, I'd hate it if they went out of stock before I got a chance to find a place for them. Also loving this cardigan from Anthro. I'm obsessed with baskets, and the fact that these have a lid makes me want them that much more. They'd be perfect for holding mail or other odds and ends. They would also be an especially good hiding place for things as you rush frantically around the room shoving items anywhere because Surprise! you have a visitor. Also good for organizing, since it's time to start those New Year Resolutions I didn't bother making this year. Oh, and the baskets are from Crate and Barrel.

Spring isn't Here Yet...But it's Coming


Oh, how I'm looking forward to spring. I think it's a little crazy that stores are already bringing out the bikinis, but I don't mind small hints of spring here and there.
