Trick Or Treating Time!

Sorry that took so long! I finally finished the bats and my pumpkin and now it's time to greet trick-or-treaters! Have a safe and fun Halloween everyone!

Happy Halloween!

Watch out, there's a new sheriff in town.

Happy Halloween everyone! It's a gorgeous Fall day and I am just finishing up some last minute Halloween decorations before the trick-or-treaters start on their candy quest.

Country Living

The first decoration that I'm working on are these cool felt bats that'll go on our front door. Steve doesn't want me to use duct tape to stick the bats on our door so I need to figure out another solution to get them to stay on the door without getting blown away...

Martha Stewart

Then I've got to carve our pumpkin, or rather carve and drill our pumpkin. Sounds strange saying I'm going to drill it but if you look at the photo above, you'll know why I want to do that. How cool do those pumpkins look?? Wish me luck tackling these tasks! I'll be back later today!

I'm Green With Envy

I know that the image above is a bit of a departure from what you normally see on this blog, but I just couldn't help myself today. I've fallen madly in love with the color green this season, and not just in fashion but also in interior decor. What's not to love about the elegantly smoldering, yet positively refreshing color, green. There's also something commanding about it to, like it demands attention. And you know me, I'm all about making a statement whenever possible. Life's too short not to have something that stands out whether it's on your body or in your home.

I thought it was only fitting to show you how closely linked fashion and interiors are through the use of the color green. Green can go with a multitude of colors and textures. What other vibrant color goes with white, black, gold, blue, pink, yellow, purple, animal print...the list goes on. See my point? You just gotta love it for your wardrobe and your home. Below you will find interiors that either use the color green as accents, or as the main focus of the space. Either way, I am loving it and only want to see more of this seductively modern color.

Bedside Table Manners

Tobi Fairley via Traditional Home
I dare not show you my bedside table. It's an absolute junkyard of jewelry and magazines, topped off with a picture frame or two and a bedside lamp. In other words, its a complete mess at the moment and I just cannot bare to share it with the public. I'm hoping though, that one day I'll get my act together and properly organize the table so that it never becomes a junkyard again.

Like I told you about my office/desk situation, I've learned that it helps to look at images of polished and functional spaces to motivate me to address my own messy spaces. Does that make any sense? Maybe it's cause when I see that someone else has got it together, I think to myself that I, too, can achieve the goal of having a beautiful space. The images below of some bedside tables are inspiring and truly lovely. I'm especially digging Emily Ruddo's bedside table. Which one's your favorite?

New Find: Shop Furbish

Stepping Out Side Table

It's been a busy week for me. I've been preparing for my best friend's bridal shower (tomorrow!) and I haven't had much time to think about anything else except desserts and rsvps so please forgive me for being somewhat absent from writing. Even with all of the bridal shower preparations, I managed to discover another shop that I think you will definitely like. Shop Furbish is full of colorful, modern furnishings as well as fashion accessories, so check their site out when you get a chance. In the meantime, check out my picks below from their shop. I want it all!

I See A White Desk In My Future...

Diane Bergeron

I have been a real mess-maker in my office lately and it's finally come to the point where I can't take it anymore. My desk is really out-of-control. It's covered with magazines, picture frames, and other items that are keeping it from being clean and tidy. Not only does the mess on my desk make me want to avoid my office, I honestly don't even like the color of my desk anymore! Don't get me wrong, its a great desk. It's just that the color is a tad dark for the space. I need something light and airy in here and I'm thinking a white desk just might be the item I need. Maybe, just maybe, it'll help keep my desk clean in the future?

Below are a few examples of spaces with lovely white desks that have been styled in super-chic ways. The desk tops are so organized and the spaces themselves are both stylish and functional. Hmm...this gets me thinking of a redo but I can just see Steve rolling his eyes at the mere mention of a redo.



Elizabeth Caan

Lauren Conrad

Pink Chrome Tufted Chair
Round Back Hide Chair
I'll take either one!

Jacqui Console/Desk
White Bone and Dark Horn Desk
So pricey but SO perfect.

Josephine Desk
This just might be my next desk. I'll add hardware to the drawer to make it my own. Now, I have just got to find the right desk chair.
