FALLing into Spring

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

I know you are tired of hearing me talk about it, but this weather is ridiculous! We had no *real* winter and then now that it's spring and a week away from May, Mother Nature thought it would be fun to throw some freezing weather at us. Enough already. We have the heat on, extra blankets on the bed and Jack asked for Hot Chocolate for breakfast.


It's making me feel extra rustic and wanting to revisit some pictures that I snapped of woodpiles that I pass everyday on my way home. Really is there anything lovelier than the beautiful grain of cut stacked wood?!

Max seems to agree. Not much makes him happier than indulging my impulse of pulling over to explore our beautiful mountains and snapping pics.

 Joni is feeling it too, I see! She just created the most fantastic Camo and Outdoor nursery design

This is so fantastic! I can't tell you how happy this design would make many of my mountain mama friends! To see all the resources visit Lay Baby Lay.

I hope you had a great weekend! Our weather has been about as predictable as the secret service--rain, sun, and then last night surrounding towns had snow! I feel like sincere apologies need to be offered to my flowers and shrubs. They are trying their darndest to hang tough but they are suffering. To see some gorgeous flowers along with some great DIY projects, you need to check out this months Styled Magazine that just went live this weekend.

One of my favorite images from the magazine are these great knobs from Chocolate Creative.




Another great read that is just out -- the May issue of Southern Living. It's like opening a yearbook and reading all about your pretend friends!


There's an article on the colorful designer Katie Ridder's house.


A shot of the ever so stylish Barrrie Benson that I just featured last week. {It looks like she has tweaked her living room a bit in this shot}

And my fave of faves...Erika Powell of the crazy popular blog, Urban Grace Interiors. How great is this cozy nook in her home? Paint-by-number dogs on the wall---'nuff said.

I got to spend Friday working at our Mustang Round-Up--the high school's fun day full of student Olympics, food and inflatables. This was Maris' team. 

I can't wait to see the t-shirts get exchanged for Prom dresses this Saturday!! Is it odd that I may be as excited as Maris and her friends for this weekend?? It has been so much fun to be involved in all of the decorations and planning. I have been having flashbacks of painting the photo backdrop for my own prom. Fun times! I will share some of the decor with you soon but I don't want to ruin it for the possibly one prom goers who read my blog.     

It's approaching!

Emily's new office

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

Emily recently moved into a house that she is renting. Lucky her, the landlord allowed her to paint everything her choice of colors {of course, she did win Design Star so she sort of knows a little bit about what's up} She decided that the green dining room wasn't working for her. Actually, she decided that the room would serve her much better as an office.

She decided on navy walls. Loyal Blue {flat} by Sherwin Williams, to be exact.

She then installed Ikea flooring {$150!! You couldn't find a rug that big for that price!} What a huge difference already, right?

And then all of the Emily wonderfulness made it's way in.



If you want all the dibs on everything in the room, go check her here
