Stamping the names..what a great option! And I'm sure that these would still look pretty after our ten hour trip back to SC
Washi tape? BRILLIANT!! Could you mess this up? I think not. Bonus: you can get washi tape for $1.89 here!
In a perfect world, I would make these tart pan ornaments. But lets be real, ain't nobody got time for that when they're in the process of moving. Maybe next year. I think they would be so pretty tied with velvet ribbon.
Just as I was getting used to living in Ohio, we're
moving back to South Carolina. I absolutely hated Ohio when we first moved here. HATED it-and that's probably an understatement. I had always lived in South Carolina, it was home. It was all I knew.
Now that we're moving, I'm sort of sad about leaving. We're leaving so many great friends, awesome neighbors, our first house, sweet babies we won't be able to watch grow, and a great city that we've grown to love.
Don't get me wrong, I'm very excited to move back to the land of sweet tea, fried chicken, collard greens and pearls. Oh, and I won't miss the South Carolina version of a white Christmas:)
So this explains why I've been MIA...house projects have stopped and packing has begun. Wish us luck on this new chapter and stick around for our move:)
How was your weekend? Did you enjoy DLS? I LOST 4 hours of sleep...FOUR HOURS people! Eric went duck hunting way too early and I couldn't fall back asleep after he left. boo.
We had a crazy productive weekend. Wanna see?
Sorry if you're an
Fabric samples for a client came in...
We started demo on our kitchen...the contractor is coming
tomorrow to start drywall and to knock out the left part of the wall!
It was a lot easier than I thought it would be... it was plaster and it was SO messy. I'm so glad they don't use it anymore.
And that brick? I can't wait to finish cleaning it up. We're going to leave it exposed. See that circle on the brick (we think there used to be an old wood burnig store there) Eric said, "We should put a starburst mirror to cover it up. It would look sort of rustic." I guess I taught him well:)
Time to bring out the boots and scarves...and pumpkins and cabbage plants and pumpkin spice lattes of course:)
Do you decorate for the season? Growing up, my mom ALWAYS decorated the house for each and every season. Although I don't have children's artwork to hang on cabinets, I like to incorporate a little bit of fall into our house!
Make sure you check out all of these other great designs!
I had so much fun with this month's collaboration because it went perfectly with the idea i had in my head for a space in my house. i've been thinking about the hall bathroom and how to make the most of the very small space. it's going to be the shared bathroom between the two kids so i wanted to reflect both genders as well as have a more grown up feel. when lizzie picked this inspiration pallette i knew it was meant to be!come visit meat Carissa Miss to see the sources!
I love these colors together. I had fun coming up with a more girly living room than I would normally use in my own home, but now I'm kind of obsessed with that rug. Stop by Sarah Loves to see all my sources!
I love this color palette...soft but yet dynamic too. It made me think of an office space...ready for lots of creativity. I think my favorite is the lights....so fun they look like bubbles hanging in the air. Find sources here!
I immediately fell in love with this month's color inspiration. The first word that popped into my head was Nautical. I wanted to use it in a dining room application so I had to give it some sophistication. Navy is one of my favorite hues and I love the contrast of the coral and gold against it. Stop by Designer in Teal to get this look for yourself.
This color pallet of coarl, mustard, and navy with a neutral background are perfect for a girly bedroom. Click over to Tiny Sidekick to see the sources!
I'm calling this my "rustic glam" dining room. I got a bit overwhelmed with the possibilities because I love this color combo so much, but in the end I kept it pretty simple but cozy. I stuck with white walls (looking out for renters!) but I think a warm greige would be really pretty too. Visit me at Living Pretty Blog for more details and sources.
