Black and White Friday

This is an oldie, but goodie. I've always wondered about the art above the it a canvas, a piece of wood, or a rug of some kind? I'm still not sure, but it looks amazing and it's what makes this room so memorable to me.

Happy long weekend!

Patterned Sofas?

I'm usually not a fan, but I'm loving these...

Perhaps because they are black & white? It also helps that it's not a large scale pattern, so from a distance it almost reads as a neutral. What are your feelings on patterned sofas? Would you tire of them too quickly? The graphic throw pillows make me want to switch mine out to something more fun and Springy, but don't tell my husband, he tends to freak out when I mention new pillows. Probably because of the growing "collection" stashed away in the closet. At any rate, it's better to surprise him with such changes, I'm sure you understand.

Peaches & Brown Sugar

I just had to share this sweet etsy shop with you all today. My friend Natalie just opened Peaches & Brown Sugar, where she sells adorable hair accessories for the little girly girls in your life. Her work is amazing as are her product shots, featuring her two precious daughters doing their best modeling work. Check it out!

Lately Loving...

...this cheery peacock hue for walls. I've got the perfect room in mind for it.

Sorry for my absence last week, I had a major project that I was wrapping up but I am back now! Happy Monday!

Keep Calm

...and carry on to Target. It looks as though this ever popular message has gone mainstream.

{love the mirror too!}

Gotta love Target! I also noticed that a lot of the Liberty of London stuff is on clearance now, so go grab it before it's gone!

What should I do with my latest goodwill finds?

I think they used to be lampshades, but I'm not sure. All I know is that I love the pattern (I can never pass up circles) and for $2 I figured I could spray paint them and find an interesting use for them.

Even Cooper thinks they have potential, but I'm pretty sure he was just waiting for me to turn my head so he could lift his leg on them.

I'm thinking I want to use them outside somewhere, maybe as planters, or use them as candleholders on my patio table. Any ideas?

Houseboat Living

With the imminent 100 degree temps soon to hit Phoenix, I'm already dreaming of packing it up and heading to the water this summer. Perhaps a 1000 square foot prefab houseboat in California's Richardson Bay would do the trick...

Imagine waking up to the sound of waves every morning and checking outside the living room window for sharks and jelly fish. Falling asleep to the sound of seals and taking the ol' kayak out to run errands. I wonder if there's a Target nearby...not that the kayak could hold all of my loot.

Rooftop patio...very swanky & social.

Just think of the workout you'd get everyday just by leaving the house! I'm not sure I could live in a houseboat full time, but it would certainly be fun to rent one for a week or two. Could you do it?
