The One Room Challenge Fall 2016 {sources & details}

Posted on

  Let me start by saying a huge thank you to Linda of Calling It Home, House Beautiful and all the amazing sponsors that made the One Room Challenge possible. Big thanks to all of you for the likes, the love, the comments, posts and emails on my space. Thank you for all generous enthusiasm – it meant the world to me! I always hold my breath wondering if a room is going to come together and if others are going to see it in the same way I do. And WHEW I think you do!  I’m still in shock that Linda tapped Erin and I to join nineteen of our favorite design bloggers for this round of the Challenge and that now I actually get to call these rooms home! What a wild ride! So now let’s get down to get to the nitty gritty and give you what you want to know – the sources & …

Monday Musings

Posted on

You might have noticed it was a little quiet around here last week. It was Spring Break and Erin & I both took little skiing getaways. Spring decided to come early to Colorado so it wasn’t the best snow ever but it was good to get out on the slopes. I ended up getting some bug the day after we got to Steamboat and I’m still trying to shake it so I actually got minimal skiing in. Definitely not a bug I’d recommend catching – food still tastes like butt & I’d love a coffee that actually tasted like something I’d actually want to drink. Hopefully I’ll finally get over it this week. So in the spirit of taking it easy I’m sharing some of the favorites I found over the past couple of weeks. 1. What’s the right diet to follow? Paleo? Low Carb? Just when you thought you knew which …

The Friday Five {2015 Design Trends I can do}

Posted on

So how many of you embraced 2014’s Pantone color of the year – Radiant Orchid? I’ve got a feeling the numbers on that are way low. I was not one of them. Likewise I don’t plan on doing much with Marsala – the 2015 color of the year. I’m a dedicated wine drinker and Marsala is not in my wine repertoire and it isn’t going into my decorating one either. I can say the same of the olive, rust and aubergine that are all supposedly colors of the moment. I don’t really care how “in” a color is if it’s going to make me depressed,sad and just want to shove a brownie in my mouth. But you know, every girl likes to be a tad trendy now and again. There are some 2015 design trends I can get on board with and maybe even hang with (thus losing any trendiness …

She’s crafty {nailhead pinboard}

Posted on

I’ve been looking for a pin board for my daughter’s room redo. She wants a place to save all her important papers – you know how it is when you’re a busy 9 year old. I fell in love with this Greek key bulletin board from Pottery Barn Teen. Bu Only problem – I baulked at paying over $150 for a pinboard for a little girl’s room. I’m crazy like that, especially when I knew I could make something like it that was even better. This is how my pinboard turned out & another little sneak at my daughter’s room.  I like the look of the framed pinboard so I dug up this vintage frame that I used to use as part of my booth back in my convention days. It was really a simple project. To start I gathered the frame, cork board (luckily it was a pretty close …

Friday Five {November}

Posted on

Happy Friday all!  With Mr Man gone all week & my youngest on a week long hunger strike Friday couldn’t get here soon enough.  I’m also excited it’s Friday because that means I get to share my first “Friday Five!” For the last couple years we’ve thrown a big Christmas cocktail party & now I contemplating whether or not to make this an annual event.  I feel with round 3 it officially becomes “annual.” I’m wondering if I’m up for the responsibility of an annual anything.  But… if we do do a party this year it’ll be all about the gold.  In honor of the gold this month’s Friday Five is focused on putting on a party with gold.    Friday Five Holiday Entertaining in Gold 1. Bar Cart Obviously if I’m going to have a party I need a bar cart.  I’ve been contemplating one for a couple years.   …
