tag sale

My Interior Life and some other bloggers are having a sale this weekend! I am definitely going to try my hardest to be there and it would be fun to meet some other bloggers.
Hope to see you there!

lulie wallace

One of the things I enjoy most about surfing the web is finding new artists. I love these fresh works by Lulie Wallace.
They remind me of a treasure from the 60's.
They would add instant vibe and character to any room.
And they are reasonable priced.
One of these days I am going to pick up my paint brushes again but for now I am going to enjoy looking at what some of my talented web friends are creating.



I am in love with this idea of a little sparkle in a vase from the book Decorate found on the blog J.W.K..
This week my daughter Clare turns 10 so I think that I will be on the hunt for some sequins for her party.


mandy lynne photography

Love at first sight.
I am not sure how I found this beautiful blog but it was truly love at first sight.
I couldn't help but scroll through every last post.
Beautiful color photographs.
beautiful black and white photographs.
She is like a photographer and stylist all rolled into one.

And then I see that one of her adorable subjects is wearing one of my dresses (the pink one).
Made my day!
You can head on over to her etsy site Skippy Designs to get your own lovely images.
Now if only I could get those red shoes in my size.

brown fall shoes

I am on the lookout for a great basic shoe for fall. Something with a heal but that can be worn with a dress and tights. This pair from Banana Republic caught my eye.


fresh fruit

Over the years my children have spent many hours playing in their play kitchen.
We always choose wood over plastic fruit but these DIY wood goodies might be the cutest I've ever seen.
To see more yummy creativity head over to the blog duo fiber works.



My tuesday of loading all of the furniture into the new store has turned into Friday. At first I was disappointed but I am excited to have a few more days of painting etc. I have had fun looking for great chairs. When I spotted these two tonight I was wishing I had room for two more!
How perfect are these beauties from Furbish Studio?



One of my girls got this invitation in the mail and I thought it was so cute that I had to track down its creator.
Her etsy site reveals some fun printables as well.
The great outdoors and hot pink.....I love them both!



I am loving the bit of Fall that is in the air. I got to wear my new Brooke Dress and some brown suede boots this morning. This afternoon I am having fun in my sweats painting furniture.
I am going to experiment with some deeper pink glazes. This will be fabulous or a disaster.


new store

The store is almost done and my to do list is a mile long. I love to gather lots of information and wait till the last minute to make decisions. It is now the last minute.

These pictures are from yesterday. It should be painted and have new floors next week.
