restoration hardware love........

A quick trip to the mall last week & a peek into restoration hardware & I fell in love with this fabulous french inspired reproduction laundry hamper & grain sack pillow. LOVE them & got both for a sweet 20% off. Truly one of my favorite places to shop. I think I'll store extra pillows or my growing collection of grainsacks in the laundry hamper & keep it under the desk in my office. I love sprucing up the house for Spring don't you? Tell me what fabulous things you've found~I'd love to hear! Have a great rest of the week. We are expecting a nor'easter on friday-can you believe this goofy weather? xo

Tulips....need I say more

There is nothing prettier or more anticipated to me than gorgeous tulips once the warmer weather of spring hits. These beautiful shots come from country living ,since I have not had one minute to shoot some of the gorgeous tuplips blooming in my own yard. I told my husband last night that planning a wedding is a full time job & that I should get paid for it-hahaha-that went over big. Have a beautiful weekend friends~xo

Little Project....

As I was redoing my office space I needed to fill a wall. Being an impatient person by nature & wanting to complete my room I thought of something in black frames that would look clean & crisp next to the white dove or dove white(always get the exact wording of this benjamin moore paint that I love mixed up.) anyway, I came up with an inexpensive yet sentimental project that would fill my wall. I simply went into microsoft word & played with fonts & sizes of fonts until I came up with the style & size that would look great inside an 11X14 black frame. I made note of the style & size of font but can't locate it right now. Just go in & play until you have something you love. It can be anything you think of- I decided to do a collage of numbers that are my kids & grandkids birthdays. So simple, so inexpensive & looks great! I chose a black frame with a white mat & simply placed the print out (on regular copy/printer paper by the way) inside & placed another piece of white paper on the back to make it more opaque. VOILA! Instant gratification. The only hard part was measuring. I always try to skip this important step & try to eyeball the exact locations. My super practical hubby always talks me out of doing this & measures for me-he is the best! We hung them & I love the way they look & the sentimental meaning behind them. Still adding to the office & still waiting for my sisal bound rug. Hope you are busy doing projects that put a smile on your face. I am going thru the whole house repainting & sprucing rooms up for a much anticipate SPRING. Have a wonderful rest of the week! xo
