It's just my style...

HomeGoods StyleScope - I'm an Earthy Casual

Yep, that's me! Even Ryan agrees with me. This didn't seem to work so well for John and Sherry over at YoungHouseLove but they nailed my style. My design challenge being organization anyone that's been to our place knows that I have an antique buffet right upon entry into my house. A place to put mail or keys temporarily and a spot to pretty up when the mood strikes! The mirror and lamp also help for last minute check-ups before I leave the house.'s like the guys and gals over at HomeGoods have been here before!

This morning we're waking up to this...

I'm always in awe of nature on the first day of a really gorgeous snow. This morning the boys were watching with eyes wide at the front window at our first measurable snowfall. I've moved camp up to the kitchen table so I can watch it fall in the backyard. It's truly gorgeous.

Happy Graduation to me...

Ryan's mom and dad gave me money for my graduation and told me "buy something for you." Indeed I shall...

Enter Lisa Leonard Designs where you can find the most precious jewelry for yourself or as a gift. Here's what I ended up with (it was hard to decide by the way):

The front has the boys' names and the back says "remember" for the wee little one we lost in 2006. Just a really sweet necklace that i'm so happy to be wearing! P.S. Don't forget to sign up for her newsletter and get an extra 15% off your first order!

New view from the kitchen...

My kitchen has been stuck in 2005 for quite a while. I decided it needed something. I have been wanting a cupboard to hang above the little buffet I got from Nell Hills a couple of years ago. But in the meantime I got a million dollar makeover for $0...seriously!



I had used this frame for something else entirely but needed to frame these baby feet:

Some of Owen's art...gorgeous!

I cut this out of the most recent "Parents" magazine. It spoke to me the minute I saw it and i'm thrilled that it just fit into this frame that I had sitting around.

To me this is such a transformation and I'm thrilled with the results!
