hostess gift.....


I must admit......I often choose gifts based on how beautifully they are packaged! Clearly,  you can see why I am in love with this sample "honey" jar! Unfortunately this strategy has also caused my wine purchasing privilege to be revoked!

my birthday treat.....


Today is my birthday....and I am searching etsy to find the "perfect" birthday treat! I think this might be it!!!! I have been lusting over this fabric for years! Thinking it would be great in the new guest room. Mom do you approve for your room?

I just ordered this simple light (www.schoolhouseelectric.com) for the powder room with the herringbone floor....can't wait to see it all come together!

house sneak peek

We are finally getting to the "fun" part of the house construction!!!! The first tile goes down in the guest bathroom (carrera marble in a herringbone pattern)!

birthday treats



Last week was my friend Sara's birthday! Sara and I are both a bit obsessed with great graphics and fabulous packaging...so thought I would put together a mix few of my current "Favorites"! 

Almost everything is from Target (with the exception of the Floral Notebook from Rifle and the gift bag from Paper Source). I am just loving Target's line of office supplies designed by color groups and Mara Mi paper goods!

a day at the horse races.....



Last weekend we went to the horse races in Kentucky! We had so much fun....and I was thrilled to have a reason to wear my "favorite" new vintage find! I scored this great "white eyelet organza" tea length dress for $60 on etsy (amazingly did not even need to be altered)! And I had to share Benjamin's adorable plaid and dot combination! Always fun to have a reason to get dressed up and have a grown up day!!!!

I am totally obsessed with this fabulous red credenza...... the brass hardware is absolute perfection!!!! Anyone know of a source for hardware like this?  I am on the hunt for something similar for our new guest bathroom.
